Welcome to my FalconRose Photo 365 Challenge

I have decided to take a "photo a day" for a full year. In this challenge, I want to test my photographic and artistic skills as much as I can over the full year. And at the end of this, I want to continue this blog for as long as it is feasibly possible. Hopefully you'll enjoy coming along with me on this photographic journey. Enjoy.

April Showers; Spring Flowers.

Damn...Missed an entry...or two. So...




There we go...I made up with three photos today for today, yesterday and the day before. ~evil grin~ Yes, I know I'm cheating.

Dinner tonight. My wife just absolutely makes awesome stew. Yes, I'm a lucky man.

Dim Ideas...


I'm finding that I'm not having as many ideas as I thought I would since my illness. Maybe I'll manage to figure out some more, but I'll see what happens.

A staple of our family (Japanese-Caucasian). We seem to eat rice quite a considerable bit.

The money I would have spent pumping 5,000 frames through my D50 if I had had to pump the same number of frames through a 35mm film camera.


And I still would have been at Stage 1 in my photography skill level. Sort of makes me wonder what would have happened if the digital photography revolution hadn't occured.

Rainy Day Thru the Window


This is a shot of the rain on the window of our front screen door. Seems to rain quite a bit up here. Might be advisable for me to get a rainproof bag for my D300s.

My First Nikon


This shot is with the L11. This digital camera we bought in 2005 reawakened my desire to shoot photography. This turned into a desire to get a DSLR which culminated my D50 which i bought in 2006, and then finally in 2010 the D300s.

The image is dark because this Coolpix E2200 finally gave up the ghost in December of 2007.

Rainy Day - Macro.

There are some days that I just don't want to get out of the house. This is one of them.


Here's my watch instead. A barely acceptable macro shot with a Nikon L11 and no ringflash. Oh well...

Hey, Someone Foamed The Fountain!!!


Someone's rather destructive method of playing a ill-timed April Fool's Day prank. This makes more work cleaning up for the Parks Staff.

Note: I have been sick with a lung infection for well-over 3 months and got smacked with a sinus infection on top of that March 2nd and have been laid up for damned near close to a month. So in that vein I am going to start over my 365 blog and choose April 1st, 2011 as my re-started date.
