Covid Creativity: 25Aug2021

By Bob May

Generally I always have my Canon G9 camera with me as one never knows when the opportunity for a great photo will happen. Or maybe just a chance meeting with the smaller world. 

I love drawing and painting these old local barns, literally watched this barn on the 23 self destruct…another one gone.

This beauty posed for me at my pool and sat still long enough to set up a nice close up.


I heard this group coming and the rainbow decided to join the scene so I waited for the merge…nice !

Drove by this old homestead at just the right time, on the 23 at 18.

I wanted a jetliner vapour trail on a blue sky and shot into the sun…the sunburst was accidental but merges with the planes trail exactly so quite an effect.

  2. Beautiful photos, Bob! I didn’t know you were a photographer as well. Or did I? 🤔 Memory ain’t what it used to be… 😂
