A beginning

Here are the last few pictures that I have edited over the past month. This post is called "a beginning" because even though I was not truly accepted to SUNY ESF, I am taking classes there this semester. The college feels right, even with the 40 minutes of walking for a one hour class. 

I haven't brought my camera to campus yet. I don't know when I will decide to, right now it's just a distraction. I did, however, witness something pretty spectacular my first day. As I was waiting for class, walking around, I looked up to see two red tailed hawks moving in unison on either side of a circle. Flowing on the wind these two were hunting while using the wind no flapping just gliding.  It took two minutes and many revolutions for the birds to pass over me and out of site. They were moving in Widdershins (counter-normal/counter clockwise, normal of course referring to the motion of the sun) which I have been told, and take as a sign, that there is a new beginning. My past mistakes will fade, and be repeated no more. Now to make that a reality through action!

It definitely feels like a beginning.

Behold a piece of plastic with their name on it, my name on it. Their picture on it, my picture on it :)

Some more edits

So I bought a new toy on Friday, a Wacom Intuos 4. It is for this reason, as well as the end to another semester of school that I have had such a drive to edit photos. I am releasing another batch of photos that I was working on today.

I kept coming back to this photo, and I don't know why.
This is Sharon... she wanted all the chicken we could give her.
This bugger was in the shower in Virginia beach. I don't know why he looks so sad....
Bad day to be an M&M.
Found this guy on the trail in Virginia, still have little idea what he is.
This is one of the Four Brothers Islands on Lake Champlain.

A few photos

Since the semester has ended a few days ago, I have been able to work on a bunch of photos. There are more coming later in the week. Enjoy

This I took only a few days ago as I was awaiting finals.
This is a trail HDR from my exploits in Letchworth this summer's end.
From a hike I took this summer, this guy was a blast to follow with the camera

Little Fish - AKA Goldfish

I must say it is crazy to think that we have had this cat for a whole year now. It was on October 16, 2011 that I made the post about the tiny kitten chasing leaves down the street. He is known round these parts as Little Fish and Gold Fish.

Happy home day... I guess...

 In celebration he is tearing apart paper, which is his current favorite toy.

Some Macro Pictures from Letchworth

Thought I would post a couple of unique macro pictures from Letchworth.

I have never seen a Grasshopper with white eyes. This guy was staring right at me.

Love how I got to miss the rain, and still find droplets.
