Taking over the yard

I don't know what this stuff is, but it is taking over our yard and flower beds. It's some type of ivy-like stuff that in the spring has these little purple blooms. In summer, it just grows like crazy and gets thick fast.

Cool flower on plant

I can't remember what this is called, but it's some type of flowering houseplant at my mom's house.

Blog No. 2

While I'm still posting stuff here, I'm putting a lot more stuff over on my 365 Project blog, in which I'm trying to take a photo a day every day for a year. Needless to say, most of the new stuff is there, but I'm still trying to keep this one up as well with as few duplicates as possible.

HDR Sunrise

I've been fooling around with some new software that creates High Dynamic Range images, which is basically one composite photo from multiple differently exposed photos. In this sunrise photo from yesterday, normally if you expose for the sky, you get nothing but silhouettes of the trees and houses and such, or if you expose for the trees and houses, your sky completely burns out. This photo was made by taking three photos at different exposures, and then the good areas of each photo are combined to make one image.

Clouds and Moon

Really nice sunset last night with a really cool cloud formation. As I was out shooting it, the moon peeked from behind the clouds.
