Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji Superia X-tra ISO 400
Shutter Speed - 1/15
Aperture Setting - f-32 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 105mm portrait/macro lens
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

A couple of responses from yesterday’s comments. Nick’s is still around and going strong. We had take out from them earlier in the year as a matter of fact. And the next time there is a bridge opening and I can get down there, I’ll be there with camera in hand (well, actually on a tripod.)

I wasn’t going to go out shooting this morning, but I awoke to hear the weather lady saying there was fog, lots of fog. So I was up to get some fog shots down at the landing, which is the only place on the peninsula I can shoot straight into the sunrise at this time of the year. I talked to a regular down there, who just happens to be the manager for our phone company, and he told me that as much as he is pleading with the company, there is no DSL in the near or far future for my area. :o( I also talked to another gentleman and found out where to find the eagles that winter here!! So, more on that later. :o) That is, if I can get access to them. They are in a semi-restricted area.

Today’s shot is just some fun I was having with the flowers I bought a few weeks ago. I took advantage of some great sunlight that made it through the bare trees into my bedroom window. We get so much light in the house at this time of year.

I like the dark background for this flower since the edges would get lost in a lighter background. Nice choice. Good luck with the fog shots.

Gorgeous! Simply gorgeous! It looks so sharp and the colours are so vivid. Is it owing to your new scanner?

I feel I could step straight into this image and walk right up the leading petal to explore stamens, stigmas and styles first hand.
