This Old Car

This car has been abandoned by the roadside for as long as I can remember. I looked for it everyday when riding the bus home from kindergarten.


16mm, f/5.6, 1/160, 200 ISO



16mm, f/8.0, 1/100, 200 ISO


It looks sad and neglected.


30mm, f/8.0, 1/160, 200 ISO


Look into its eyes...


100mm, f/6.3, 1/200, 100 ISO


...deep in its eyes.


100mm, f/4.5, 1/100, 100 ISO


The car has lost its wheels.


100mm, f/5.6, 1/125, 100 ISO


The lock looks to be in good shape, but I don't have a key.


100mm, f/5.0, 1/320, 100 ISO


Good thing the window is down so I can peek inside.


100mm, f/5.0, 1/250, 100 ISO


The speedometer may not be accurate; it reads 40MPH.


100mm, f/4.5, 1/100, 100 ISO


Hoards of mosquitoes ride in the backseat.


16mm, f/4.5, 1/100, 400 ISO


There's also a geocaching box back there.


31mm, f/3.5, 1/100, 400 ISO


Goodbye Old Car.


16mm, f/8.0, 1/125, 200 ISO


I'll visit again one day.

the most effective Scarecrow ever

Really, the only flaw in this Scarecrow is that its target audience seems to be people rather than crows.


100mm, f/6.3, 1/500, 320 ISO [Day 111/366]


How scary is that face?


100mm, f/6.3, 1/250, 320 ISO [Day 111/366]


Normally I like bunnies...


100mm, f/6.3, 1/400, 320 ISO [Day 111/366]


The glowing red eyes indicate to me that this bunny was a little possessed by the evil spirit residing within the Scarecrow; Not a cuddle-bunny.

Lucifer

Falling Star, Crocosmia 'Lucifer'


100mm, f/6.3, 1/200, 250 ISO [Day 107/366]


This bee was surprisingly aggressive, and tried to chase me away from the flowers. I almost left, but decided to harass the bee right back instead.


100mm, f/7.1, 1/125, 250 ISO [Day 107/366]


Yeah, I'm going to get stung one day. Perhaps if it hadn't been so cold today, this guy would have had the energy to hurt me.

...what I'm trying to say is that this thistle is an intense blue blue color.
[Sea Holly, Eryngium]


100mm, f/16, 1/100, 800 ISO [Day 104/366]


I like the focus on this one...and I don't like the focus on this one.
