No Vacancy

#Macro of a #HalictidBee taking refuge in a #flower, making sure no unexpected visitors drop by. There were dozens of these tiny flowers, each one occupied by one of these bees. They were quick to defend against any intruders. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Calm Before the Storm

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/calm-before-the-storm-ii-david-lamb.html
Birds await the coming storm which darkens the sky. Probably not the best place to wait for what turned out to be a severe thunderstorm, but birds seem to have it figured out. A re-edit of an older photo of the same name. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Stranger in a Strange Land

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/stranger-in-a-strange-land-david-lamb.html?newartwork=true
#Macro of an #ant inside a #flower. These black ants were herding #aphids, tending to them like a goat #herder to a goat. You can see the aphids in the background as black dots, while the ant was patrolling the perimeter likely due to my presence. Wanted to get a shot of the ant handling his herd, but he seemed more intent on defending them everytime I stuck my lens into the opening of the flower. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Right of the Tree

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/right-of-the-tree-david-lamb.html
A #tree waits for the color of Spring. Shot with my new Samyang 14mm Wide Angle lens. It's a fully manual lens with good optics, making it a lot of fun to use. It can be a challenge to manually focus at first, but when it is focused, it is crystal clear. This photo was slightly croppedShot at Fort Washington State Park, PA-US. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Marsh Creek Lake

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/marsh-creek-lake-david-lamb.html
The dock at Marsh Creek Lake, which seems like a bit of word play, but is in fact the name of the lake. It is like saying Sand Dune Desert. Shot taken in Marsh Creek State Park, PA. It is a beautiful park, and the lake has a lot of boating, though unfortunately not many picturesque sail boats where out this day. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Cherry Blossom Sky

Honey Business

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/honey-business-david-lamb.html
#Macro shot of a #honeybee gathering nectar. I have seen a lot more honey bees this year than I have in the last few years. Hope that the population begins to rebound, as it would be a very serious problem if they continue to decline due to colony collapse disorder.

Seedling

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/seedling-david-lamb.html
The hands that hold us back are often times our own.

A combination of several photos of myself. The initial shot was me kneeling (it was in a low ceiling basement) below a bright work lamp. I hung a black sheet from the ceiling next to the light, with it touching the outer bowl of the lamp to illuminate the details of the folds in the sheet. I used a 10 second timer since this was a solo project. I then took six photos of my hands, and added them in using the hand in the original shot as a guide for size. For the hand grabbing my arm, I was grabbing a rolled up black towel to try and realistically capture the hand muscles tensing as if squeezing. I added 2 faint textures using photos of a wall I took. Gave it a bit of a sepia tone, color corrected and a slight crop, all done in Photoshop.

The image represented some struggles at the time, and creating it helped sort those struggles out. Like a seedling, fighting it's way up through the dirt. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

Outshined

Shot from the bottom of a cab (yeah, not pretty) in New York City. The #sunlight reflected off of windows from another building lit the dark side of the foreground structure in an interesting way. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.
