• Juvenile Loggerhead Shrike

  • Rotary Park Morning

  • Attempting some evening HDR shots again. Still not enthusiastic about Affinity Photo’s masking options.

  • Staying at home has improved my coffee considerably. It has also made me start looking at espresso machines which is not helpful.

  • I’m starting to get the flow with working at home. Not sure how I can go back to my cube without having my Poäng lounger around.

  • Magnolia opening

  • Female Cardinal with her mate in the background.

  • Just a little hop. 04F11EC1-4366-4080-8D27-E50E2516F73F.jpg

  • The wind has kicked up some chop in the ponds.

  • Today was officially Too Hot outside.

  • Welcome to Thursday (which is the same as every other day)!

  • First attempt at doing anything with HDR. Quite the learning curve to even get Affinity Photo‘s Tone Mapping Persona to even create anything usable. Not really happy with the way masking tools work in the Persona or how it commits the Tone Map with no later editing!

  • Evening cycling ended with an incredible sunset. I was about 10 minutes too late for the peak. 11B33E35-2603-49C8-90EF-8760E60C90C8.jpg

  • Hei-hei is my WFH copilot

  • So glad that we got some rain around here. Retention ponds were starting to look a little dry around here. Grass was turning brown. Didn’t stop the kids from taking a shower outside.

  • Setting down

  • It’s good to see that Starbucks is as essential as every other business in town.

  • It’s time to relive 2007. YTMND is back

  • Last night’s sun set. We’ve been spending a lot of time outside in the evening.

  • Osprey squatters

  • Broke the bike out today to get out for a little workout and to hunt for a few photos. 5 miles and change isn’t bad for not touching the bike in…a year?

  • The kids have now realized I’m going to be home much more than normal and, thus, cannot leave me alone.

  • Today’s work location: the dining room table. Kids are up late this morning but the birds are ready to go!

  • One of my favorite birds: the American Kestrel. Can’t believe I got this shot.

  • Hard times in the quarantine. Drastic times call for drastic measures.
