    Went out to shoot birds, ANY birds, for this week's Bird Challenge. But the weather conspired against me, and I didn't find any until I pulled into my driveway after I gave up and went home! I did manage a few shots of other things, though. These are a couple at a local (frozen) lake, where a young couple was playing frisbee with a very enthusiastic Doberman - who would not let go of one frisbee while chasing another! At one point I counted five in his mouth as he ran after a 6th. I noticed also the man was wearing a front-pack, and when I got closer I saw he was carrying a tiny little dog inside to keep warm. So cute!

    I also got a few more farm animal shots, but these are the couple on the beach and two pics of the hawk I saw when I got home:

    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    I was surprised to discover, after 21 years of living here, that not 2 miles from my house there is a Revolutionary War-era burial ground. It's very small, perhaps 20 feet square, containing 6 headstones within a low stone border, and several other headstones just outside the border seemingly moved since first being erected.

    I suspect I never saw this tiny gem because, even though it's just off the main road I drive almost every day and despite the fact that it is mere feet from the highway, there was up until recently a thick row of brush obscuring it. However a very large solar farm was just built immediately adjacent to it and that thicket was trimmed as part of the installation. And it's February, so there is no leaf cover on whatever is remaining. So it's finally visible.

    This is just a snapshot, taken when I saw the medallion and realized what I was looking at:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-revolutionary-grave-resize-1-1-.jpg

    These three headstones are just outside the rock border, obviously dug out and propped against the tree for some reason. A farmer clearing the land a hundred years ago? The installation of the solar panels? Who knows. The left and right headstones are a man and woman with the same surname, "Wood", so I assume they're husband and wife. I couldn't make out the date because of weathering. The center stone had no inscription - I think it may have been on the side facing the tree, but I didn't want to disturb it. I converted it to black and white for this week's photo challenge, and think it looks better for the conversion. But this is the original:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-trio-headstones-tree-resize-1-1-.jpg

    There's a larger cemetery in the town of Warwick, NY, just up the road. The plots here cover a wide range time and style-wise, from the late 18th century to...this very week. I haven't processed all my pics yet, and these aren't the best, but I do like them:

    Just a couple more from my day at the historical cemeteries....

    These are the three headstones propped up against the base of the tree that I posted as a black and white earlier, but seen from a distance. I find it just as poignant for some reason....

    Finally, this is the same shot of the guardian angel as before, but I adjusted the color temp. The OOC shot was just too blue, and I should have addressed it the first time as I think I prefer it this way:

    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    I had a lot of fun with this week's challenge, "architecture". I'd never specifically tried that genre before, and it really forced me to contemplate how to compose shots from subjects I didn't think were inherently photogenic. I don't know that I managed anything noteworthy, but I had a good enough time that I'd like to try doing more of these.

    These are all shots of the building and parking garage where I work. My shift starts at 4:30am, so I arrived a half hour early yesterday to try some low light shots (my poor D5500 was screaming at my choice of ISO, lol...). Then at 9am I had a break so I went out and took a few more in the sunlight.

    All of these shots are hand held. Even this 2 second exposure, where I braced myself against a pillar and held my breath. I took 4 fuzzy shots before I managed this :

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-garage-side-1-1-.jpg

    This is the walkway from the garage to the side door entrance that I use:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-walkway-columns-1-1-.jpg

    The pre-dawn parking garage interior looked interesting in real life, with intersecting angles and lighting, but I didn't capture it well in these photos. Still got a lot to learn....

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-garage-interior-3-1-1-.jpg

    Lol...I had to take this quick snapshot. They got the parking level number incorrect on one of them. I still don't know which floor I was on:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-level-4-5-1-1-.jpg

    And finally, the photo I entered in the challenge:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-building-thru-garage-beams-1-1-1-.jpg

    A few hours later in daylight....

    This is the one I almost entered in the challenge. It was a tough choice: less noise and classic composition, or more noise but more interesting shot (to me)? I went with interesting, but I still like this:

    Somebody was having a bad day:

    Dangerous Spouse Pics-window-graffiti-1-1-.jpg

    .

    I like this composition, but I had to shoot it through a dirty glass pane so it's kinda gunky. Not sure if I prefer the OOC framing, or the cropped version:

    Please don't tell my boss I was goofing off on the company dime....
