Remnants of spring, summer and autumn, a cluster of HDR photos populate my photo folder. Farm buildings, fields ripe with grain ready for harvest, trees with autumn leaves desaturating from green toward bright yellows and reds, summer cloudwork and a final shot of Edmonton in green July splendor – all are HDR shots. The 1947 Ford Tow Truck and a cousin’s farm feature visually in this blog post.

Listening to – U2’s ‘Always,’ David Gray’s ‘As I’m Leaving,’ Ryan Adams’ ‘Hallelujah,’ Mazzy Star’s ‘Into Dust,’ Snow Patrol’s ‘Life Boats,’ The Perishers’ ‘Trouble Sleeping’ and U2’s ‘Last Night On Earth.’

Quote to Inspire – “There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described. I photograph to see what something will look like photographed.” – Garry Winogrand

    Your HDR photos are nice. The truck is really fabulous. Thanks for the visit and the like of my Close Up/Macro post in Cees’s Black and White Challenge.

    1. Hello there …

      Thank you for your kind words. The truck seems to be orienting me to a world just before my time and just after the second world war, my mother and father’s time.

      Well done on the macro shot in Cees’s black and white challenge; I enjoy looking in on the work of others and to see how and what they achieve. Good schtuff! 😉

    I love the antiquity, and sense of space that these pictures evoke.

    1. Hey there, Francis:

      Antiquity, a time before my own, and sense of space, being in the world – two elements of my photography that are likely motivations for discovery and looking around.

      Thanks for looking in. 😉

      Take care …

  3. Beautiful, beautiful work-the “Morning Colors” is nothing short of spectacular-I love the HDR and the saturated color palette you are working with-

    1. Thank you for having a look around this post – an autumn morning, bright and colourful. 😉

    1. Hey there, Sandra:
