I’ve found that Carolina anoles make great subjects for photography. They’re unusual and useful animals, they tend to stay still long enough to get the shot, and when seen closely, their antics are charming.

This little guy climbed up seven feet onto the top of one of the birdboxes in the meadow, and from there put on a courtship display. To whom, I have no idea. He’d get up on his toes, pump up and down a couple of times, then take a deep breath and puff out his call sign. I can only trust it works for him.

After first checking to make sure he wasn’t smuggling our strawberries, I moved in for a series of interesting close-up shots. After I had moved away, we began to wonder where he’d go from there. Almost as soon as we had the thought, we saw him BASE jump off the birdbox into the tall clover below. We never knew he could do that.

New Toy!

Wow. I always wanted a Brownie.

Sadly, UPS was a little slow on delivery of this package. I think it has been replaced by newer technology.

This was one of the gems on display at the local farm museum. It would have been nice if it was a complete kit, but thankfully someone is preserving it regardless.

In My Little Town

So, I thought to myself: If I use a fake tilt-shift effect during processing, will this scene look like a tiny toy town?

Nailed it.

Just having a bit of fun… This was a display at a farm museum nearby. In a long, metal building packed to the rafters, we found an incredibly eclectic collection of toy figures, lunch boxes, old farm gear, restored tractors, and icons from past times. No doubt there will be a few more images from this location, and as with any good spot… gotta go back!
