Photo A Day# 711 "Creek" This is nest to the Mill Pond so I am guessing its Turtle Creek. I wasent going to use this photo for today but the more I looked at it the more I liked it. I like the snowy creek, half frozen over but I also liked the building kinda hidden behind the the brush and tree branches. I am not sure of the history of the building, I like how the building is right next to the creek.
Photo A Day#710 "Cobblestone Road" I finished up an assignment in Elkorn and instead of coming back to the office on the main roads I came back on the back roads. One of the roads I was on was Cobblestone Road between Elkhorn and Delavan. The wind was really kicking up the freshly fallen snow and once the sun ducked behind the clouds it got kinda dark, oh and it was cold. I had to wait a few... minutes for the light to be just right to get this photo, if I took the photo before the sun was behind the clouds the photo was way too bright and when it was behind the clouds at certain points it was losing the detail in the shadow area, so this was a compromise and was able to get the both of what I wanted.
Photo A Day# 703 "Fog" Today was just a foggy day , all day. This is the entrance to Yerkes in WIlliams Bay. The fog along with the dullness of the ground and the overall grayness of the photo is what I like about it. I didn't want to go black and white with this photo, cause I think it would have taken away the subtleness of the image and the overall mood .
Photo A Day # 689 "Tractor In Shed" This is on Walworth Road and immediately caught my eye. The single shed with the back end of the tractor in the doorway, and the tree with the blue sky had me stopping my car and getting a photo. The color of the tractor against the dark inside of the shed I really like and almost just cropped into just that, but then decided not to in favor of getting the environment around it.
Photo A Day # 685 "An Old House" This was what looked liked an abandon house on the outskirts of Elkhorn in the country. It almost looked hidden in-between the trees and brush. I dont think in the summer you would see it but now that the leaves are gone its much easier to get a glimpse of it. I like the range of grays in this photo and the overall tone it projects. The house being off kilter somewhat among the trees and the what is left of the white paint on the wall. Again using color filters when shooting black and white is a great way to see the photo in a different way.
