You know that solar eclipse time lapse I was gonna shoot today?

Yeah, that's gonna have to wait. :-/

But, no worries – apparently I'll get a new chance in 2039! :)

This one's for you, dear +Luster Lai. I guess "eventually" wasn't that far away. ;)
 I hope that the sun is brightening your day and if not, maybe this flower might do the trick..?

Of course, it's also #FloralFriday! I hope that you've all had a great one. :)

The +FloralFriday theme was created by +Tamara Pruessner and is co-curated by +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and +Eustace James

The beauty and pitfalls of shared circles

I circled +Steve Dimock months ago, without ever laying eyes on his exceptional work. How crazy is that!?
Well this morning I stumbled across it by accident and what a treat!! :)
If you haven't checked him out before (+Les Imgrund ;), I definitely think you should. Right now!
Day 5 of 5

I was challenged by +Fabio Corona   to post one B&W nature photo for each of the next 5 days and to challenge a new photographer each of the five days. Today, I challenge +Susan Dimock    to produce 5 fabulous B&W images. (I saved the best for last :-) )

Todays image is an extreme close-up of a Brown Pelican. This bird was overly cooperative and I began to do some experimentation with my images while it sat watching the nearby crabbers. This abstract is one I rather enjoyed. I hope you like it as well.

Älgafallet (Moose Fall) in colour

This is a colour version of the photo that I posted for last weeks #longexposurethursday and day four of my  "fivedayblackandwhitechallenge" (

The processing here is a bit "different" (it's not split toned) and is based on a method that I discovered by accident (it's nothing fancy) when I got the chance to process one of +Toshi Nakamura's beautiful photos, about a year ago (those results can be seen here: -- thank you once more, Toshi :).

This is also a thank you to +Luster Lai (here's the image you requested the other day, dear), +Albert Vuvu Konde, +Erin A.D. +Mikael Sjösten and +Åsa Bylund, for encouraging me to "come back". :)

Why have I been gone for so long? Well, for those of you that don't know, you'll just have to wait for an explanation in another post. :P

+LongExposure Thursday is curated by +Francesco Gola and +Luca Gerardi

Among a few other remarkable things, G+ has given me the chance to meet and make a few friends, but none like this genuinely fantastic person and photographer.
 So Happy, HAPPY Birthday, dear +Luster Lai! May this year be your best ever! :)
 Thanks for all the good times, words of wisdom and all the inspiration, dear!

An amateur photographer with serious GAS (gear acquisition syndrome) that enjoys good friends and colleagues, my wife and kid, culinary experiments, playing and listening to music and lately, the great photo community on G+, wishing he had more time to fit it all into his tight schedule.
Bragging rights
I do a mean chicken impersonation and I'm a black belt aikidoka (shodan). I'm also an expert at making time disappear (so if you have any you need to "lose"… ;). And my dad used to be a pop/rock star. If I believe enough in myself, I can do almost anything (I think…)!
