Mica Bay, Lake Superior

MicaBay5

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.

 

 

I’m Coming Home

I’m Coming Home

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

The time has been long

I will just be along

On the next flight out

Leaving Toronto

I got the next flight out

I’m leaving the blues behind

I am going to bring

All my loving

I’m soaring above the clouds

Leaving them blues behind

Just you on my mind

Just you on my mind

I am flying to Managua

Looking for your love

To take your hand

To take your hand

Just to say, I love you

Just to say, I love you

Just to look above

Thankful for your love

Then walk you home

Like I wrote, in the poem

Oh yeah, just you and me

Falling in love again

Falling in love again…

Falling in love again….

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

ON Duty

I was walking in a new neighborhood in Jinotega, that I had not been before. The lighting was good during a late afternoon. Rain was threatening. A rather large dog appeared on my left across the street.

The dog appeared quite suddenly, poking its head through a narrow opening in the metal door. There was a lot of vertical lines in the scene. Therefore I created a vertical composition.

Off We Go

 

Off We Go

The sun is coming up

Peeking through the trees

The birds are singing

The clouds are fleeing..

Grandpa gone to the barn

Off we go…

Through the ocean of grass

The wind she’s a blowing

Just me and the hound

Over the field,we bound

Full of joy and laughter

A boy and his dog…

Spring is here

The flowers are blooming

Across the field, down by the hedge

The grouse are drumming

Off we go…

An old logging road beckons

Calling to the hound

Down the road we bound

Off we go…

Hurrying past the barn

Grandpa milking the cows

Calling to the hound

His nose to the ground

Off we go…

A rabbit goes a running

The hound in pursuit

Just a baying

Off we go…

Through the sugar maple bush

That ole rabbit goes…

Twisting and a turning

We follow in a rush

That ole rabbit been around

For me and the hound

Now going slow…

Give up the hunt

With his tongue hanging

Comes the hound

Nose to the ground

Going slow…

Grandpa gone to the barn

Off we go…

Through the ocean of grass

The wind she’s a blowing

Just me and the hound

Over the field,we bound

Full of joy and laughter

A boy and his dog…

Oh My Gosh

Rivas, Nicaragua. At the ferry landing Lac Nicaragua

Oh My Gosh

I was told by my mamma

That I would meet, a lady

That would take my breath away

That was my destiny

Well just the other day

I saw my destiny

She stood there looking

Doe eyed and sweet

I was all a flutter

Tongue in a knot

She said hello

I thought I melted

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Well you know

I found my tongue

But all I could say

Oh my gosh

She wore a red dress

Tight and alluring

Those smoky eyes

Kept pulling me closer

Those soft red lips

Just a teasing me

Long black hair

Straight and sparkling

She got swinging hips

Oh, those shapely legs

What a pretty lady that

Oh my gosh

I’ll take you in my arms

Hold you tight

Tell you, you are my destiny

To the end of time

I just want to

I just want to

Make love to you

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

I have met my destiny

She takes my breath away

Buscando el Cielo

Buscando el Cielo

( Looking For Heaven )

Como me acuesto en la cama

Cubierto en la oscuridad

De noche

La noche suena más allá

La ventana

Tengo que pensar en el cielo

Tal vez he estado buscando

En todos los lugares equivocados

Pensé un poco más

me pregunto

Donde esta el cielo

Está más allá

Las estrellas

Tal vez debajo de mis pies

Pero cuando miro

Las profundidades de mi amor

Ojos café oscuro

Tengo esa sensación

Que he encontrado

Mi cielo

Veo paz y tranquilidad

Un amor tan profundo

Mi alma está en reposo

Mi corazón se regocija

Porque ahí está mi cielo

Profundo en esos ojos marrones oscuros

Un día lluvioso

Miércoles 19 de octubre el año 2016

Me desperté con el cielo nublado y el deseo de ir a fotografiar. Es la época de lluvias aquí en Nicaragua. Ha llovido toda la tarde. Ahora vivo en Matagalpa, Nicaragua rodeado de montañas que se pasó la mañana y la casa comercial de limpieza para las tiendas de comestibles. He observado continuamente el cielo en busca de signos de lluvia. Las nubes eran de un color gris claro. Miré hacia el Norte. Las montañas estaban cubiertas de niebla. Ahora bien, esto era prometedor. Una oportunidad de capturar algunas escenas de mal humor. Me tomé un almuerzo rápido. Cargado mi equipo de cámara en mi mochila. Luego, por la puerta que fui.

Me paré un taxi que pasaba. La siguiente parada fue la estación de autobuses. Salí del taxi después de pagar mi pasaje. Había un autobús de pasajeros de cargar a San Ramón. Subí a bordo de la partida hasta el desvío de San Ramón. Mientras salía el autobús en el desvío, el cielo se estaba volviendo más oscuro. rápidamente caminaba por una calle lateral configurar mi trípode y la cámara. Hubo algunas composiciones interesantes como se puede ver arriba. Hice parte de un pequeño montículo junto con una parte de una rama de un árbol en primer plano. He encontrado la rama de un árbol interesante debido a su ángulo, pero la iluminación en las hojas fue lo más destacado. De esta manera he logrado una mayor profundidad a la foto. Los ajustes de la cámara para la foto fue 0,5 segundos, f22. Las gotas de lluvia aparecieron como estaba fotografiando.

La lluvia cogió un poco mientras caminaba de una línea de la cerca. Yo era capaz de capturar unos cuantos disparos. La lluvia caía más difícil a estas alturas. Empaqué y me dirigí a algunos edificios en el desvío. Esperé y esperé, pero no había ninguna relajación con la lluvia. Esperé unos cuarenta y cinco minutos. El día estaba cada vez más oscuro. Esto significaba una velocidad de obturación más lentas. Hubo un poco de viento. Es hora de ir a casa y hacer la cena.

Bueno, eso es todo por ahora. Hasta la próxima vez rastros felices

Your Picture

Your Picture

I put your picture

Beside my bed

Your sunny smile

Your sparkling eyes

I still can’t get you

Out of my mind

Our love ran deep

For one another

You were just 21

I was only 24

When we sealed our love

With a vow of marriage

We had two beautiful children

The grandchildren came

Along with our golden years

To bring joy into our lives

They always ask me about you

Upon seeing your picture

I tell them that you are in heaven

That she sends her love

When my days are blue

I just look at your picture

With that sunny smile

And sparkling eyes

I put your picture

Beside my bed

Your sunny smile

Your sparkling eyes
