A bunch of photos from the second half of July 2018

Since I’ve been feeling better, you’d think I’d be taking more pictures, right? Well, I actually have been, but I haven’t gotten any better at then resizing/cropping/exposure fixing them. As a result, I had two weeks of shots to go through for this post – about the only reason I ended up with twenty captures, and not twenty million, is because the weather hasn’t been particularly cooperative.

On the technical side of things, for those who are interested, I used my trusty Nikon COOLPIX P610 and handy dandy tripod (Amazon affiliate links – thanks for the pennies if you click through…LOL). I use the Auto Mode setting pretty much all the time, and typically bounce the exposure bias around between 0 and -2 step. Then I reduced and crop the shots, run them through PicMonkey if necessary to clean them up (can’t tell you how much bird poop I’ve deleted from my photos), then they’re ready for public viewing.

Given how much precipitation we’ve gotten in the past two days, and how much rain is in the forecast, I may end up doing “A bunch of photos from the WHOLE month of August” next…

Oh, and a belated, rabbit, rabbit!
