Photo a Day - July 26 - Summer Along the Susquehanna

Photo a Day – July 26 – Summer Along the Susquehanna

The motion and the rhythm of this exposure are what convinced me to choose it as the photo du jour. Days like this make me happy to have two strong legs and a will to explore what I should consider familiar territory, having spent 16 years walking out here. Yet, I don’t. I view each

Photo a Day July 25 – Temptation (and memory)

It was a fun lunchtime. The weather was beyond awesome with low humidity, a light breeze and sunshine. So, I went out  along the Susquehanna River for my exercise. I was tempted, but did not, sit to enjoy the view. I was also tempted to move the chair because I remember an installation/performance art gig

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 24 - Hardy Hibiscus

Photo a Day – July 25 – Hardy Hibiscus

Learning. I love it. I could be a perpetual student and, really, while not officially enrolled anywhere, I am as much a student as I am a teacher. Working with photographs of the Hardy Hibiscus, I became curious about the plant and its huge, saucer-like flowers. So, I abandoned the darkroom and headed to the

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 23 - Summer Evening on the Swatara

Photo a Day – July 24 – Summer Evening on the Swatara

The heatwave is gone and the humidity is moving out. The pups and I walked down to the boat launch and watched the kayakers and ducks enjoy a summer evening on the Swatara Creek. The water is muddy after yesterday’s rain, as the foreground of the photo shows, but I think it created a nice

Christine Goldbeck's Photo a Day Project - July 22 - Going Up!

Photo a Day – July 22 – Going Up!

One could walk right past this view and never notice it. It is on the backside of what we call the “Middletown Flatiron,” a neat building at the intersection of North Union and Spring Streets. I have always enjoyed the scene because it changes with the season and because it is almost hidden, almost a

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 20 - On the Other Side of the Swatara

Photo a Day – July 20 – On the Other Side of the Swatara

Many days, when I am walking the pups, I do not carry my Canon 7D and its little sister backup, the 30D. Instead, I shoot with the iPhone. Now, this is cool, except when you need a good telephoto lens, such as today, with the blue heron on the other side of the Swatara Creek.

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 19 - Town and Country II

Photo a Day – July 19 – Town and Country II

This is a scene that I always find pleasing when I am standing behind the Matthew J. Ryan Office Building at the Pennsylvania Capitol. I did a scene with the brown-eyed Susans (one of my favorite flowers)  in the foreground and from a slightly different viewpoint on July 1.  Interestingly, earlier in the year, I

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 18 - A Spot in the Shade

Photo a Day – July 18 – A Spot in the Shade

A pretty spot at the Pennsylvania Capitol, although, even in the shade this week, one still sweats even when one does not move while sitting. Breathing causes perspiration this week in the eastern United States. In addition to the shade, the shadows called me to record this seating area, which is at the top of

Photo a Day – July 17 – Acorns

subtitle: or thinking cool thoughts in a heatwave I needed to shoot something that reminded me of the cool weather! 😉 Enough said? In Pennsylvania and neighboring eastern states, we’ve been in a sustained heat wave for days. Actually, this summer has been something else. It either rains or it is humid and stinking hot.

Photo a Day by Christine Goldbeck - July 16 - Morning in Harrisburg

Photo a Day – July 16 – Morning in Harrisburg

Before I saw this shot in my mind’s eye, I was focusing on dappled sunshine in the Capitol lawn overlooking Second Street. I love chasing light, reading light, interpreting light … When I turned to head back in to my office, rays of the sun were radiating down, casting shadows and brightening the treetops. And,

Photo a Day – July 15 – Afternoon View

I wanted it to look HOT, as it was, but colorful and alive, scorching temps notwithstanding. Plus, I love to use painterly techniques in my photography.   An 8 by 10 print, matted to 11 by 14, is $15, plus $2 s/h.

Coneflowers in black and white is the photo a day by Christine Goldbeck for July 14

Photo A Day Project – July 14 – Coneflowers in Black and White

I seem to be on a black and white theme these days. I always find it challenging to do black and white flowers because so many people prefer popping color in their flowers, and I understand that. Alas, I never take for granted that I know what I am doing. I approach what I do

Photo a Day – July 13 – Rain Diamonds

I had such a difficult time choosing what to offer you because I am made more than a hundred shots in the backyard and while walking the pups. So, I am offering more than one shot because my focus and style changed frequently to make different effects. Black and white photographs are fun to make,
