Red Rubber Ball

There is an old song by that name written by Paul Simon and Bruce Woodley but first performed by The Cyrkle.  But that's our sun in Minnesota these days because of wildfires up in Canada.  (eh?)  Within moments of taking this photo, the sun was so deep in the haze that you literally couldn't see it.  Worst, you can smell it and there are air quality warnings...

Does make for a dramatic photo, though.  I had to increase the contrast to maximum to bring the details out.

I am a serious hobby photographer, husband, and a pretty good amateur plumber...  Other hobbies include model railroading and archery.

A few words about my "Hand Picked Circles" project:

It is now dead and gone.  Thanks Google.


A Few Words About My "Photographic Style"

In general my style is "Photo Veritas."  I almost always strive for realism and the common experience.  I don't usually include people in my photos, because I expect the viewer to be "the person in the picture."
