Wall Decor and Photos

Wall Decor and Photos, originally uploaded by Noel C. Hankamer.

My entry for Monday's Weekly Photo Challenge- Around Your House. Some of my photos on the piano in front of a wall with my wife's Cat Plates and the sign from a motorcycle shop I once owned. The sign was painted by a Bandido in need of cash.

Playing around with some actions available on Flickr. These two stuffed animals are from me to my wife on Valentine's Day.

Bokeh in the Weeds

Bokeh in the Weeds, originally uploaded by Noel C. Hankamer.

I needed to try to use my 50mm lens more, and I need more practice in capturing Bokeh by design rather than by luck and chance. Shooting in Aperture Priority and manual focus, I managed to get some results like I was looking for. The reddish clumps out of focus are some dead leaves.

Bergman Wrench Set

Bergman Wrench Set, originally uploaded by Noel C. Hankamer.

I finally put my set of Bergman Queen City wrenches in a display box. These were made by the Bergman Tool Co. in Buffalo, N.Y. Patented in about 1912. I believe these five are all the curved ones they produced.
