Welcome friends. Today we conclude our 8 part series. Now I have to come up with something else to name these damn posts.
Ok let’s get started, you know the drill! Music!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I present.. ‘Love?’
When we last spoke I crammed a pile of my photos down your throat. Don’t worry, I’m absolutely doing more of that. Said crammage can be found here.
You may or may not notice a friendly little watermark appearing on my images. Don’t worry about that little guy. So WordPress has this fancy option that let’s you post images as just an image.. not a link to a full quality version of that image. Thing is, that feature doesn’t work. So I pondered that, and looked at my dwindling mystical cloud storage. Figured I’d kill 2 birds – post smaller lower quality images and ‘protect’ them with a watermark. It takes effort and I will probably stop doing it.
[Edit – Too small! I crapped these down a bit too much, I’ll try to not ruin everything next time]
Without further b.s. – here are this week’s images!
Day 11: Hot
This.. this is the inside of my toaster. I thought I could get a cool photo of my furnace burner, that was a bit of a fail. I think this turned out well considering.

Day 12: Cold
I do believe this was a suggestion of the Boss. I made colorful ice cubes and photographed them. Of course I had to take a few black and white.

Day 13: Long Exposure
I drive by this dam every day. It’s neat. The bridge I set my tripod up on is very narrow and people are not a fan of the local speed limit so it was a tad dicey and prevented me from sticking around long enough to experiment more with this one.
Day 14: Traditional Beauty
My wife got me a bottle of Jameson, I took pictures of it.

Day 15: Nontraditional Beauty
I decided to go with selfies because I am a strong independent man who uses photo editing software to soften his unibrow.
I do have a few alternates but decided one creepy selfie was quite enough (2 if you count the cover photo.. which technically was an alternate).
Day 16: Close
Extremely loud and incredibly close. I had fun with this one. I didn’t know what I was going to get but I knew I wanted light coming across the cymbal almost parallel to it like a sunrise or sunset. I stuck all the macro tubes on the camera and went to town.

Day 17: Far
Another fun one! The Boy and I went out for a walk before a brewery trip today. He picked out his jacket which I think worked out quite nice.
Day 17 Alternates:
The left photo was my favorite. I was standing on a stump, and The Boy was very adamant that I needed to get down. I would have gone with that one but I felt the on I chose fit the challenge better.
