Portraits in Rainy-Day-Grey

  1. Two shots done from my front and back doorway that accurately reflect the weather we have been having here in Western Mass, and my corresponding mood regarding it.

    I have a secret, though. I did it as a self-imposed challenge.....not to leave the house, not to use a zoom, and while cropping was allowed, the original picture had to be usable with no extraneous details before the crop. So I ended up with my 85mm f/1.8 teamed with my Kenko Pro 300 1.4X Telextender. And a position in the doorways.

    I'm pretty satisfied with the results. Just wanted to share.

  3. Thanks, Angela

    We had another bad storm today. The one yesterday knocked out power to thousands of people for the second day in a row. Eight out of the last ten days. Our lawns look like they normally do in May (nary a sign of brown) and the rivers are up to their banks, again like late May.

    Bah, Humbug!
