Spiders again. We have a whole clan up in the corner of the window. They rebuild their web daily so it keeps changing. I know their have been lots of spider shots lately, but I'm moving so the only other thing I see all day is boxes. Tonight I got at least 4 spiders in mid- aerobatic flight, creating a new web.
You get 2 photos today. I was trying for a night shot of the Guthrie from the river road which is tricky between the lights on the marquee and the dark building. On a close up of the marquee I got the HMS sign in perfect focus, but without the larger shot for context it wouldn't make sense.
Another spider picture. Sorry for those who don't like them, but it's getting to that time of year when they are every where by the river. Last night's spider had friends tonight. There were 2 webs and at one point between the webs I saw 5 spiders jumping and dropping to build webs to catch the moths that were attracted to the lights.
At work, the window that had the moths frolicking around the lights a week ago, now has a ginormous spider in a web. Tonight's rain provided some moisture and I got a good picture of the web and you can see the spider in the middle.
Tonight I took my tripod out to the baseball diamond in Central Park (Hopkins) and tried to capture the bright 3/4 moon with the clouds passing by it. The moon was so bright I didn't need as slow of a shutter speed as I thought I would, but I played with various settings to see what they would do. This was my favorite shot of the night.
A baby squirrel was playing in the bush outside my window this morning. I liked this shot best because he was standing up looking at me even though the screen on the window kept me from getting a clear picture.
Walked down the river road between shows today and took some photos of the new 35W memorial. The wall pictured here is a vertical waterfall and has names etched in the blocks. Hopefully some night I can get a few pictures after dark when it's lit up.
Tonight was an experiment. I tried to capture the moths and bugs flying around the lights outside te window at work but the first few were too dark to catch them. Then I thought about using the lower shutter speed and seeing if I could get almost a time lapse look of the them moving. It almost worked but the light overpowered the reflection of the bugs. So the squiggly lines are not scratches, but the flight pattern of the bugs.
Tonight I got a shot of the banana-grams game. Several of the actors and actresses will play this during intermission and when they have down time in the show. It's basically a speed version of scrabble. This was the first time they left the words out so I could get a picture.
