Since You All Love Toads So Much

On Wednesday, I posted two pieces. One was a breakdown of a landmark patent that could change the world of commercial photography for the worse. The other was a photo of a toad I took with my cell, accompanied my a little blurb stating that don’t much care for toads. Traffic when I posted the former plummeted. But, for the latter, I received a slew of comments between this site and my Facebook in rushing to the defense of toads. I guess that means more toads for all!

I Don’t Much Care for Toads

20140507_163738Even as I am rushing to finish pieces for the site, freelance, and landscape, there’s always time to nab the odd wildlife photo, even if it is a toad. I never much cared for toads. It’s never fun to find them while landscaping, they’re not very bright, make a mess of the roads in summer, they’re everywhere, they pee on you if you try to hold one, and on top of all that, they’re ugly little buggers.

House Building

20140418_134613(0)Lately, I’ve been helping a buddy and his family build a new house. It makes for some interesting angles, perspectives, and framing. I snapped a few frames on my phone between hauling heavy materials and playing with power tools. This shot was actually supposed to be a silhouette, but the image came out more evenly exposed than I thought it would, and then one thing led to another in Lightroom. What do you guys think, was I too harsh on those little cell-phone pixels?
