A Year In Photos: 2017 (Part I)

Plant soil, roots. (Jan 27 2:49 p.m.)

So, we’re well into the new year.  Storms have come and gone, and the kids are back in school again.  (None mine, lol.)  2017’s wildfires paved the way for mudslides, and… it’s like my fingers would begin to hurt how much I’d be crossing them hoping this year will be better.  There are, however, always good and balanced parts to reflect on.

Library stool. (Jan 19 2:17 p.m.)

2017 wasn’t exactly a great year for subjects.  But it was the first whole year I had a modern iPhone.  An iPhone SE camera doesn’t sound like much, but, with the right software, it’s enough to experiment with, and reflect on my small world, here in Maine.

Non-improved photo. (Jan 19 2:18 p.m.)

Improved technology, improved HDR and improved methods (or so I’d like to think).

Stairwell. (Jan 19 2:23 p.m.)

Some of the subjects I’d already “snapped,” but come 2017 have the opportunity to better represent them.

Leaves. (Jan 27 2:49 p.m.)

Some subjects were new.

I’ll never know whose boots those are. (Jan 19 1:30 p.m.)

From good weather…

Da birds. (Feb 3 3:44 p.m.)

…to not-so-good weather.

So cooold. (Dec 29 2:04 p.m.)

Cultural changes.

Oh, buoy. (Feb 3 4:05 p.m.)

And seasonal changes.

We forget last winter brought a lot of snow. (Feb 16 12:50 p.m.)

And unexpected gifts.

(Feb 11 4:17 p.m.)

These flowers were, at one point, frozen.  The delivery truck couldn’t see our address (as no one can, with our inevitably damaged mail boxes), so the flowers were delivered to our next door neighbor, where they sat in snow for a little while.  Thankfully, one of the next-door brought the flowers to the right address, and they survived.

A pipe runs through it.  And by “it,” I mean the whole stairwell. (Jan 27 3:10 p.m.)

You can find still life subjects anywhere.  (And if you don’t like my photo of a valve, I’ll remind you that it’s my collection, not yours.  So there.)

My humor may not be sharp, but at least my pencils are! (Dec 10 4:55 p.m.)
“D-d-don’t touch my s-stapler.” (Dec 29 3:12 p.m.)
But how do they sit in those chairs? (Feb 3 4:13 p.m.)

Some things you just don’t see every day.

Snow plow snow banks. (Feb 16 6:38 p.m.)

Both winters for the year were remarkable.

Drooping limbs. (Feb 16 12:55 p.m.)
Back Cove. (Mar 16 2:38 p.m.)

Even some of the photos taken with the obsolete camera weren’t bad.

Shovelin’. (Feb 16 1:46 p.m.)

And there were times when I got silly.

(Feb 14 8:47 p.m.)

More silliness to come. 😉

(Feb 16 10:43 a.m.)
