BTW, I have been trying to understand ETTR and found this article helpful, although I don't completely understand all of it. I don't have the url, but it is ETTR Explained, in Photography Life, 6/29,17. I am going to experiment with the suggestions to see what results. Thanks for your encouragement. Matt

Two chimneys

Waverly Mansion, located in Howard County, MD, was built in the mid-18th century and sits on property that was first patented to Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of The Declaration of Independence. The estate and building passed through inheritance and purchase to several different families in the 18th and 19th centuries, gradually adding acreage to the tobacco plantation for a final total of over 1300 with 999 slaves. John Howard, governor of MD in the late 18th century, gave it to his son, George, as a wedding present in 1811, who then renamed it “Waverly,”after the popular 1814 novel, “Waverley” by Walter Scott.

Over the two centuries, the building has undergone several renovations, restorations and expansions. In 1964, the property, by that time a little over 900 acres, was purchased by a realty company. Planning, subdividing, political bickering and development of a golf course, landfill, housing and a school slowly took place thereafter. Howard County purchased the Manson and the 4-acre parcel in 1989 and now leases it as a wedding and occasional venue.

Things unseen--teacup in sunlight

One morning, a strong ray of sunlight was coming through one of the high windows in our kitchen, shining on the island as we prepared breakfast. I put my teacup in the spot. It exploded with rings like a galaxy. I had to take a photo.The upper portion of the image spilled into the sink, so I cropped it out. I couldn't move either the sink or the spotlight. I will wait to see if it happens again and monitor the spot to see whether I can get a full image of the cup and rings.

I wonder whether the rings show the construction of the cup at the microscopic level. The surface feels smooth, but I doubt human hands are sensitive enough to feel the minute ripples. C&C welcome. Matt attachment=0]teacup and ring shadow (1 of 1).jpg[/attachment]

I really like this one, it has an anthropogenic feel to it like I'm looking at an image from the past, something you'd see in a natural history museum.

Your project is inspiring, hopefully we'll all do one soon! S-

Company for Thanksgiving

Our granddaughter, Michaela. Age 8. Her first braces. My first 'studio portrait.' Hung a wrinkled sheet from my bureau and had her look at the window. In PP, used the brush to make the dark smears. Matt
