#macrophotography takes an close-up of these amazing textures, lines, and patterns. This image is a perfect example of taking something someone overlooks everyday and turn it into a powerful subject.

Your smile, my laugh, our feelings. Each piece of us intertwine like pieces of grass, and once meshed together we become strong. As with anything, time tests these bindings and weakens them with each nick and cut. Some of our once shared desires will unravel, but our hearts will remain bound together forever.

Just moments before the end of the morning "Blue Hour", over Lake Michigan in Kenosha, the sun has yet to break the horizon. Red, orange, and magenta mix in with the cold blue sky to give an amazing pastel pre-sunrise. Much of this color was not visible to my eye, but luckily the camera was able to pick it up. 

I was not the only one out to view the sunrise, as you can see four people walking to the lighthouse early in the morning to see it together.

Review & Critique  - 
 
It has been awhile since I stepped my virtual foot onto Google+ and I came back with a new image I would like to share to receive some feedback with. 

This image was taken with a Sony A7, Nikon Micro-NIKKOR 55mm f/2.8 AI-s, Nikon PK-13 extension tube, with metabones lens adapter to put nikon glass onto a sony body, and a Bolt VM-110 LED Macro Ring Light.

This was lightly processed to enhance the texture and converted to black and white.

1/15, ISO 320, F/22.

"Winter Buck"

In 2014, I set out to get a number of specific images. Towards the end of the year, only two images remained; bald eagle and a big buck. Luckily, visiting my brother there is areas that are near that have both and for my luck I visited him for Thanksgiving. 

I went out the first day and didn't even see a bird, I didn't see one animal for five hours. Next day, I found 4 doe and a small 4-point buck. It wasn't big enough to be able to scratch the image off of my list. On the way back in, up in a tree was an eagle which I got an image but I didn't scratch it off my list to get. There was no action, just it sitting in a tree looking cold. 

Next day, I was headed back home. Before I hit the road, I decided to spend another hour looking around the woods. As I was driving, there was a spot that someone put bird seed out. I pulled my car over on the side of the road, about 10 yards from the seed pile, went to the rear of the car and kneeled down. I used the bumper as an elbow rest to hold my lens (using the tamron 150-600mm) and just snapping away. 10 minutes in the eight pointer walks in slowly, walking toward the seed pile. 15 yards away from me, unseen and still knees in the snow behind the car, I was firing my camera to capture this image.

I have broken into the full frame world with the Sony Alpha 7, and went with the original instead of version II. This has been a camera I have been watching for a very long time and it has finally possible to grab one. 

I purchased a battery grip right away so I had two batteries and I was glad that I did. The first day shooting ended up being a seven hour shooting session. I went with this camera because the high dynamic range and the great low light ability. 

This image below is also my first attempt at photographing #urbandecay  and #graffitistreetart  on some ruins found in #MKE  (Milwaukee, WI).

Story
Introduction
Technology, Photography, Gaming, and Camping. My top 4 favorite things I do. I also enjoy sports, both playing and watching. I know enough with most sports to be able to watch/play anything.

I work in the computer field doing Network and System Administration, mainly I'm that guy that people call when they want something with technology.

I picked up Photography in late 2011, and think it's taking off pretty well. Look at my photos on flickr.

Gaming, I just switched back to to PC. I use to be PS3. Mainly play games like Battlefield 3 or Diablo III.

Camping, I will take just about all opportunities that come along.

The outside and inside are two different worlds. Once you walk into the gallery the lights and displays take over the senses. Extremely customer friendly and knowledgeable about each piece displayed. There was no pressure to purchase anything and was willing to answer any question I had about the art.

One of the few places that has great food and value. Large portions for less than 10 bucks. Can probably make two meals out of it if you wanted
