Lately I have felt bad about some of my old photos just sitting around on cd's or in storage boxes and thought I would re-vitalize them and try putting some Haiku words with them.  Its been an incredible exercise and I see these old photos with new eyes.  Now I look at them and try and add not only color, but sound, smell and enviornment with seasons.  It changes everything.

Dragonflys are coming to an end here at our place and we didn't have as many this year as in years past.   This little guy has some appeal to me with the back light.  He is perched on a stem of lavender and was quite the model.  I shot this with my 150mm Sigma macro lense at 400 ISO 1/60.  I keep trying new exposures for macros so my subjects are more focused.  This one could be better but I like it anyway.

The next dragon fly is the same one!   Now I am facing the brick wall and he is lit by the late evening sun and the brick wall really sets him off nice.   Wish it were sharper but I like the colors and composition.

Savannah Cats

What a treat to get up close and personal with my friends Savannah's.  These little guys are like a 24/7 entertainment center.  Playing in cat agility tunnels and inventing games.  The big ears don't miss a sound and the eyes never miss the smallest movement.

They are so intense and creative.  They have such expression and I tried to capture that in my photos (I have lots of photos!).  These photos I took indoors in the early morning with my canon xti and my Tamron 28-75 lense with flash.
