Pic-of-The-day - "All Hallows Eve".

From a trip to the Old Fort Erie (National historic site) "All Hallows Eve" tour in 2010.


I've taken a few years off from this tour as each year seemed like a photo copy of the previous one.
I might give it a try this year in the hope there's something slightly new.

PoTd - September 20 | Entopy

 Pic-of-The-day - "Entropy".


Have I ever mentioned that I love rust?  well, I do love rust, a lot.  I'm fascinated by any form of entropy. Weathering, rust, decay and aging they are all part of the same process & I love them all. 

Entropy is appealing,  or at least the visual signs of entropy are appealing.  Lots of us are drawn to images & drawn to make images of things that are weathered, rusted & decayed. 


We all know nothing lasts forever & I think that part of the attraction, to see things that demonstrate that idea. 

We spend so much time fighting entropy.  We clean & paint & repair all the time fighting this process. Sometimes it nice to accept decline & enjoy it, even if only in an image. Maybe it reminds us that sometimes, it's OK to let things go & let nature take it's course.

The hardest part of this post was  only picking a few photos to represent entropy. It's so appealing.

PoTd - September 19

Pic-of-The-day - "Orbs".

In the above "orb photos" the green spots are reflections of the candle flame bouncing around inside the camera lens. The situation is exacerbated by the very dark room with only one bright source and the lens aperture being wide open at f1.4. 

The situation is similar to people who go ghost hunting in dark places with very few light sources. Like in these examples the cameras that are straining to get a decent image and they get 'orbs' similar to the ones I got.

I wish there was more too it, but just about every 'orb photo' I've seen is a variation on,1) the above effect or 2) dust close to the lens lit by an on camera flash.
