Foggy Photos with Jackson

IMG_1638I woke up this morning to a foggy, misty morning.  So I grabbed the camera, and my son, Jackson to go capture some foggy images.  Jackson proved to capture the images of the day with the Canon G9 (still one of the best cameras I’ve ever owned).  Look carefully in the photo above and you’ll see Jackson honing his craft.  A selection of his images is below.



While I was setting up ND filter holders and remote shutter releases, Jackson was pursuing this squirrel.  The photo below is the Oyster Nursery pots wating to be cultivated next summer.


Next are two images from the sailing pier in our neighborhood.  Jackson chose a gritty, photojournalistic, high ISO approach to landscape photography, and it works nicely.  I’ll have to try this approach in the future.

This event turned out to be more about watching Jackson enjoy something new, than capturing images myself.  I have a few I’ll edit and share over the next few posts, but this one squarely belongs to Jackson.   Good job.



Wagon Wheel



Wheel from a 1918 Republic Fire Engine take prior to the Severna Park 4th of July Parade.

We had an unbelievably busy fourth of July holiday weekend.  Wednesday night fireworks; Parade, BBQ, and more fireworks on Thursday; Lacrosse tournament (4 games) on Friday; Swim meet on Saturday.  We need a weekend from the weekend.  Gotta love summer.



My nephew Matthew has developed an interest in photography. Looking forward to shooting some photos with him soon.

Good Company


I had really good company this morning on my annual Annapolis WWII photowalk.  More photos to follow (from both cameras).
