Hanging By a Thread

I debated rotating the image 90° CCW and photoshopping out the thread but it didn’t look natural with the way the caterpillar was curled.

If you look closely, the caterpillar is only touching the wall at the rear of its abdomen, or more technically, its anal prolegs. Other than that, it’s relying on the single thread to keep it from falling down. 

Nature can be so cool!

Cuba, January 2020

Going to Cuba is always like taking a step back in time. With that in mind, I wanted to create pictures that looked old, and what better way than by making them black and white?

Since I only brought along a tablet on this trip, I used Snapseed to process the pictures. If you don’t have Snapseed installed on your phone or tablet, you really should. In my opinion it’s the best mobile photo editor available, on both iOS and Android.

Port Dover, March 2020

It’s never warm taking the motorcycle to a Friday the 13th event in Port Dover during the winter. With that in mind, I wanted to take a picture to make things look cold, which I think I managed to do here.

Old Garage in Caledonia

Got out for an extended motorcycle trip on Tuesday and came across this old garage. As I was taking pictures, the lady in the house next door angrily walked over asking what I wanted. It turned out she thought I was a town inspector writing her up for an unsafe building on her property, but I reassured her that I thought the building was fantastic. We ended up having quite a nice talk.

Snowbirds

I took some pictures of the Snowbirds at the Niagara District Airport last week. It was nice to get out with my camera again.

The two images below were commented on the most on a Facebook post where I shared a number of pictures.

The rest of the images I shared  can be viewed here.
