False Start

Back in August, I thought I would start blogging regularly again. Well, that didn’t happen. I got halfway through the month doing really well on all the goals I had set for myself, then I started traveling for work and getting busier and I let my goals slip away. So, now that it is a new month, it’s time to start again.

For those of you who still read my posts, thank you for your patience! I hope I can say that I am back for at least the next few months.

For now, here are a couple of pictures of downtown Roanoke. I hope to get another post up this week.

The featured picture on this post shows the Amtrak platform being constructed for passenger rail service to return to Roanoke on October 31st!

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 11)

I took very few pictures with my phone this past week, but today as a storm rolled through I took a panorama of the sky from the back deck and decided it would have to do. I hope you enjoy the way the sky looks as storm clouds come through and I’d love to see your pictures of storms as well. Comment a link to a picture below and I’ll check it out!

Because of the clouds, I knew there would be a good opportunity for a picture during the game so I patiently waited by the patio at the stadium waiting for the opportunity to arrive.  Continue reading iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 7)

Shooting for the Stars

This weekend I am an area with almost no light pollution so I decided to try to take some pictures of the stars. I thought about trying this before, and then I saw some of Leanne’s shots from the night of the lunar eclipse so I decided to give it a shot. I should have turned the ISO up slightly, but I used 30 second exposure and f/3.5 to try to capture tonight’s night sky. The moon doesn’t “rise” until 12:32am tonight so I might try again in a few hours, but here’s what I have for now! If you’ve been successful with night shots, please offer your expertise on taking these kinds of pictures.
