This jester sculpture is actually part of a lamp – it resides at a relative’s home, and I see it once every couple of years or so. Last time when I tried to photograph it, I didn’t have as nice of a camera, and in the soft light, the image turned out blurry because I couldn’t hold the camera still enough.

Purple Flowers

I took this shot at the J & F Farm. We had stopped for tomatoes and carrots, but ended up wandering by where they grow their flowers, too. I was pleased with the focus on the subject, and the nice bokeh behind it.

Salt and Pepper

Peppercorns and sea salt crystals, just waiting to be ground onto some fresh food.

Nemesis: Beetle

A photo of one of the beetles that is terrorizing my garden. I hope the chickens think these things are tasty!

The Dog’s Toes

Coffee Bubbles

A macro photo of my morning coffee, including what appears to be about 100 self portraits in the reflections.

Part two from my trip to York, Maine’s Long Beach. I’m going to try to go back soon to see if I can get a better close up photo.
