The Shutterbug Pub, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Hi all - I hate to start the daily 3 days in a row but since I am up and it is getting late...

Another cool morning but warming up. I need for it to get warmer because I need to check the air pressure in the trailer tires before we head down to Fla for a few days. At least it will be warmer there.

Here is an interesting shot (of at least I thought so ) of a corn stalk in a field that was covered with Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes. The corn is planted just for the birds.



I about to get ready and join some Ham radio buds for coffee this morning. Tonight I will attend a meeting of the local artists guild where the speaker will be a photographer talking about photos that tell a story. Looking forward to that.

Don, you just beat me to it.
I was getting my photos together while you were posting.
NEVER feel bad about starting the daily. Think of how happy it makes us feel.

That is an awesome shot. It is the clarity that really makes it work well and the bokehed background that works so well with the colors of the subject. Great start, Don. I would be looking forward to that speaker's message also. Have a good time.


So when I was thinking about starting the daily , I was going to say that Today is Hump Day



But is it a One Hump or Two Hump day for you?
(I really don't know which is better)



I just hope it is a good hump day for you.

Don,
I went out this morning with my bottle of blowing bubbles solution. It was only 22 degrees. I did NOT whip up the solution that you gave me the recipe for yesterday,, I had no corn syrup and just wasn't into cooking sugar, etc.

Well, I waited about 3 minutes but the bubble didn't freeze. It would have been to breezy anyway. I had to stand next to the garage just to keep the bubble from flying off the wand.

Thanks for opening the Pub today, Don!
I agree with Lorell; the sharp details in the cornstalk
against the background made the photo.
Nice shot!
Is it HAM check in day?
The locals here do their check in's on Sunday evenings.

Haha Lorell!
VERY cute!
They are the strangest looking creatures!
Always smiling but would spit in your face in a flash!
Sneaky, huh?
The photos make me smile!

I'll have to go archive-diving for something to post.
If I can get one within an hour, I'll just edit and include it in this
post.

Hope everyone is having a good week!


These from 2014
Small cotton town
(we visit here a lot)

Oh Deere


Old Cotton Gin Building

That pile in front of the brick building is ginning fluff well into
compost phase.

Lorell, not sure why your bubble didn't freeze... would the sugar (syrup) make that much difference? I can only repeat what the photographer who posted the recipe said. One of these days I will give it a shot.

There is a local 2 meter net here on Wednesday night but I haven't checked in for a number of weeks now. But a few of us meet at a local BK to have coffee and just visit for an hour or so.

I like old farm equipment, cars, trucks, etc as well as old buildings. Those are always good subjects. You captured them well.

Thanks Don,
Local club here, meets once a month in person then does their net on Sundays.
They also do Field Day. I did 2 of their field day photos a long time ago.
DH isn't an active member of the club anymore so we haven't been to FD in a long while.

Thanks, the photos I took were snapshots at this
little town, (Bostwick, GA)
which is often a destination via backroads when we are out riding.
Thats where the festival with the vintage tractor parade was.
The Northeast GA 2 Cylinder Club.


We love old stuff too.
I always feel like these things are slipping away and with them, a big part of our history.
So I grab what I can out there with my camera!

Lorell - Shot at the decisive moment and precisely the right camera angle to nail the profile, and the full front face together.

Patty, "Oh Deere" (GROAN!)
Looks like that old tractor has done its fair share of toil, I'd say.

And a good angle on the old brick building, probably a store or for processing the cotton.

Nice big tyres in which to grow potatoes.
