The Bird of Paradise plants and the Daylillies seem to have a symbiotic relationship along the back wall of the backyard.

Bird of Paradise Study #79

Images From My Yard

Nikon D7000 16-135mm @ 40mm ISO 1250 3-bkts f/16 Lr4 HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

Another image found in my backyard.  This Bird of Paradise plant is one of three in my yard and it stands close to twenty feet tall.  I really dig the color, shapes and lines created by the leaves.


Roofline With Bird

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 135mm ISO 1250 1/2500 f/16 Lr4

One of the photographic exercises I task myself with from time to time is to find objects in my own backyard to make images from.  This is the roofline of my next door neighbor’s house, as seen from my backyard.  I like the diagonal lines created by the vents, the wood trim and the roof tiles, as well as the recurring pattern of the tiles, and how it all plays against the deep, blue sky.


Angry Bird

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 10mm ISO 2500 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

When I first started post processing this I was thinking “Italian Flag”, and while it has all the right colors, they were not proportioned right.  Then as I looked at the image, more and more, it hit me, “angry bird!”.
