A few pictures I’ve taken in the last month or so (I’m trying to get better about posting).

Some pictures from Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, the southernmost part of mainland Canada. As is probably obvious, the place is known as a hot spot for migrating birds, and this Monday, 23rd May 2017, was at the tail end of the annual Festival of Birds.

For these pictures, I tried acting like a real photographer and shot in RAW format for the first time, including post-processing. Alas, my telephoto lens simply doesn’t take pictures as sharp as my other lenses, so despite the extra work, they don’t look quite as good as other unprocessed pictures I’ve taken (which would be nearly everything I post here). It was an interesting experiment and I did learn a few things as a result, however.

And to round it all off, here’s a couple panorama pictures I took with my phone. Naturally, these, particularly the first one, are shockingly sharp and high-res, especially considering the full-size images are 30% of the original size.

As regular readers might notice, I’ve updated the look of this blog, as well as some of the information on the various pages.  I also cleaned it up a bit, removing some outdated, unnecessary, or undesirable content.  The colour scheme I had before never quite suited the header image I’m still not compelled to change, so it was rather fortunate that WordPress’s theme randomizer pulled this similar format up as the first result.

Let’s hope a little change can help spark some more consistent updates.  I’m not really in a position to share details at the moment, but I can say that big things are happening behind the scenes, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, shock and awe, I do believe I am finally up to date with photos:

It occurs to me that while I didn’t take a lot of really great photos last year, I still have most of the year’s work to catch up on.  This will take a few posts.

I also put together a chart chronicling my art progress over the past seven years:

As frustrating as my art has been in recent years, it was reassuring to make that.

Well, if any of you are regular readers, I owe you an apology.  A lack of updates for a lack of anything to update is one thing, but I’ve simply been neglecting to add content I do have to share here.  The rest will have to come later, but for now, here’s some new art:

And new photos, the beginning of a growing backlog several days long at this rate:

If you’re a regular reader, I probably don’t need to tell you, but come back for more photos, and hopefully more other content, Friday.

New art:

Got to play with oil paints and oil pastels yesterday at my mother-in-law’s, so something a little different for this week.  Still no new calendar image yet – I’ve made progress, but it’s far from complete – but I hope you enjoy these.  Considering how quickly and easily they came out, I may have to do more with these media.

New photos:

Second batch of photos from the Niagara Falls aviary.  One more to go and only one more photo post following that.  Stay tuned, the last ones really came out nicely.
