No retouching.

We were losing light, and I didn’t have a tripod. These were the best shots I was able get of my favorite pin-up model. I think TWGW is stunning in these shots.

For the 3d-glasses impaired.


Now In CREEP-O-VISION!, originally uploaded by gentlemanbeggar.

Playing around with a new 3d filter in g’mic. This is me, sitting in a hallway last Spring waiting out a tornado warning while the house was pounded with heavy winds. You’ll need blue/red 3d glasses to fully appreciate this.

What is this bird?


What is this bird?, originally uploaded by gentlemanbeggar.

I’ve never seen one of these before. Saw him when I pulled in and had to snap off a shot. I have no clue what kind of bird it is, but he sure is fun to watch when he walks.


Edit: Apparently, it is an “American Woodcock.” Thanks to redditor “OsoGato” for clarifying!

Keep me posted

Keep me posted, originally uploaded by gentlemanbeggar.

Twice in one year!?! Today brought the second snow of the season, a rarity in these parts. This is an old gatepost near our barn.

…Like a big pizza pie

…Like a big pizza pie, originally uploaded by gentlemanbeggar.

It might not look like much to you, but I’ve never been more proud of such a small dot. This was the first time I’ve ever had a lens on a digital that would make the moon big enough that you could recognize it as more than just a pinpoint of light. It was in the low 30’s and overcast the night I took this picture, shivering as I waited for Luna to peek out from behind the clouds. I fired off about 10 shots and this was the best of the lot. I’m looking forward to more clear nights.

Cardinal Emerging

Cardinal Emerging, originally uploaded by gentlemanbeggar.

While helping my aunt feed a friend’s horse, I thought I’d play with my new lens a bit and took the opportunity to snag a few photos of the local wildlife. I thought this little cardinal looked so regal perched half in shadow and half in light, and just had to share it.
