Storm Victim…

Well. Seems like the storm the other night got another victim. It happens more often than you think when you leave your computer on all night without the benefit a UPS (Uninterupted Power Supply). Powerstrips don’t always protect as they should and hard drives can still be damaged by not being shut down properly. Image […]

Lightning…

I’m not a big fan of lightning. It’s powerful. It’s fun to watch from the safety of indoors (unless of course it blows up the transformer across the street, then it gets more on the frightening side). I searched the internet to find out how to photograph this wonder and decided to try it. The […]

Cloud Prism…

I have never seen anything like this before but I suppose it has something to do with the way Rainbows are made. The cloud layer above these storm clouds started changing colors. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art It was really awe inspiring and kept me standing on the porch for a very long […]

Panning Your Subject…

While panning your ‘fast-moving’ subject it’s sometimes important to pay attention to what’s happening in the background before releasing the shutter for that ‘perfect’ shot. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art I got the shot I wanted later. I guess I’m glad that digital came along because film would get expensive during my ‘trial […]

Mail Delivery…

I rather miss the old Jeeps that the post office uses. I believe they still use them in the rural areas but not so much in the cities anymore.  Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art The Jeep is so distinctive and not only does it remind me of the post office but my Army […]

Peer Pressure…

I remember when I was young and how sometimes my mouth would override my abilities. I was taken down memory lane here recently when I watched as my grandson told a lovely little girl how he could make it across the monkey bars. He had not taken in to account his physical limitations as he […]

Central Texas Rain…

I’m so glad it rained. There is so much to see and do after a heavy downpour (other than dry off). I noticed my grandson’s bicycle had fallen over in the storm. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Now you may be thinking that’s a shadow under the bicycle but it looks like God […]

Moon Tips…

I don’t get asked alot of questions but I found the answer to a common question by Googling it. The question was “How do you photograph the moon?”. Image © Copyright 2009, Barrett Photo Art The thing to remember is that the moon is reflecting the sun’s light and is bright. Most cameras on auto […]

Old Buildings…

I love old buildings and small towns. It makes me wonder what it must have been like way back in the day when the town was growing up. Image Copyright © 2009,  Barrett Photo Art Downtown Lockhart, Texas is a good example. There are alot of wonderful places to explore in that town. I think […]

Photo -a- Day…

You know sometimes it’s hard to do a photo a day come to think of it. But I will get better as time goes along. I almost always have my camera with me but I’ve found that when I “TRY” to take a good photograph that it sometimes just doesn’t happen. Image Copyright © 2009  […]

Hard Drives…

Did ya notice that once a hard drive goes bad there is not much you can do with it. Well… I decided to imortalize this one as it was such a good servant. (Backed up of course). Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art. Well it appears that the little fella (SATA Laptop 250 gig […]

Drought Continues…

Well the drought continues with water restrictions in place. The good news being that the water usage has dropped 23%.I thought I’d try and take a photograph a day and update the blog just to see what I could do. Enjoy! Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Peace, Love, and Earth Tones,
