A Snail's Pace On My Daily Walk
Friday 20 June 2014   —   Category: Shooting
As I was taking my daily neighborhood walk early yesterday morning, I noticed this snail making its way up a white fence. I started to pass it by, but then on second thought I figured it might make an interesting picture, so I went back and took a couple of shots. Then we each continued with our own morning exercise — him at a snail’s pace, and me (hopefully) a bit faster!

Later, I processed the best photo in Adobe Lightroom. At first I left it in color, but I wasn’t fully satisfied with the results. I was picturing something more along the lines of my recent dragonfly photo. Therefore I converted it to black and white, and fiddled with the settings some more until I ended up with this image. I really like how it turned out!

This photo is the 38th so far this year in my Neighborhood 2014 album. Looking over this half-year’s worth of images, I’m amazed by the variety of shots I have been able to get in my own neighborhood — and even in and around my own house — just by keeping my eyes open and my camera handy.

Even if I didn’t take pictures anywhere else in Oregon this year, just these shots by themselves would make 2014 a decent photographic year! It just goes to show that you don’t have to travel long distances or spends lots of money to have fun with photography and get interesting results!
