Marijuana Flower

These are images from the very start of my effort to document different strains of cannabis. The first two I get to create digital images of are the Gorilla Glue #4 and Jack Frost strains. I tied the freshly harvested buds  up under the lights in my studio to let them dry for the next 5 – 7 days. I’ll be taking pictures and documenting along the way. Just like drying any plant. These ladies really have changed the smell around the studio these days. Two large buds cut straight from the plants. The images in this slide show are from the first 3 days of the process. Can you guess which strain is which? The labels are in the captions. Sit make and click on one images to start the slideshow. Some of these images appear somewhat blurry, but pretty decent none-the-less.

Harvest 2014

As I’ve probably said before, one of my favorite things to do is walk around my neighborhood and find things that will make cool images. This week’s post features images from such a trek. Pumpkins in the neighborhood! The first image is of some pumpkins left over from last year. Now that’s what I call a Rotten Jack. The second two images are this year’s crop of orange squash.

The pumpkin is a squash, which is a vegetable. Yummy pumpkin pie is a great Autumn tradition. But pumpkin soup with a little curry included makes a delightful treat. The pumpkin is native to North America, with the earliest seeds ever found for this interesting vine was found nearly 10,000 years ago near present day Mexico City. It’s become a tradition to carve drawing into a pumpkin and lite them providing a lighted path to follow as the days grow shorter approaching Winter. An astonishing 1.5 BILLION Lbs of pumpkins are grown, predominantly in the US State of Illinois, but also in Indiana, Ohio and California. The pumpkin has been historically pollinated by the Squash Bee, which is currently experiencing a decline in population, due to pesticide use in growing pumpkins. Imagine a Halloween without the pumpkin? It may be coming soon.

Harvest Moon setting over Portland, OR – 9/30/12

I was out on the Eastbank Esplanade in Portland, OR along the Willamette River this morning in time to witness the Harvest Moon setting. With the Downtown skyline in the foreground it made for some fairly awesome photographic opportunities. These images were taken with a Nikon D80 using a couple different lenses. Please enjoy, and if you have to share please invite those you share with to see the images here at my blog. You can copy & paste the URL address. Or, please remember to give proper credit.
