Anyhow, I have 3 photos for you today.
Since I got my new camera I have been wanting to take picture of White Sands from up on the mtn. pass going from Las Cruces to WS, just so that I can remember years from now just how teeny tiny WSMR (White Sands Missile Range) is. So, here is a pic of where I live:
You can see the light colored buildings in the almost center there? They almost blend into the surroundings, that's WSMR. This was taken with my Canon Rebel using the 18-55 mm lens with UV filter on. I tried the photo with my polarized filter (because it was a little foggy) and with no filter at all, the UV filter gave the best results. (I have been trying different photos with different filters and such, just to see what results come with using each one. That is the best way for me to learn. I don't like reading manuals.)
This next photo I actually did for the SCS photo challenge last week. It was to take pictures
of windows. I wanted to find a stained glass window somewhere thinking that the chapel on post had some. Well, they have colored glass panels in the windows, but no stained glass of the type I was wanting. I did try to get good pictures of the windows on the post chapel, but they were retarring the roof and had roofing supplies and orange cones everywhere so that was a no go. So I drove over to the Missile park on post and took a picture of this glass block window that houses the rocket exhibit. The yellow that you see if actually the rocket that is behind the windows, not a reflection. I decided to practice my black and white shots. But I wasn't feeling very well and didn't want to leave the house, so I went to my living room window and took come pictures of the tree in my front yard. Depsite having gotten the roof line in the very corner of the picture, I liked this one.
Tomorrow I will post one of the cards I have. I can't post the other one for a few days because the recipients, or at least one of them reads my blog, so I will post that one later in the week.
