David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

White Clematis Bloom. 

I noticed these big white flowers across the street. They were identified as Clematis. It has been a great spring for flowers this year in New Jersey. After taking some images of the flowers, Lauren gave me some of his excess tomato plants to grow on my deck. Because of travel over the last several years, I haven’t had much time to keep up with a garden. This summer could be different. I have a couple of big pots and bags of planting soil to set up on the back deck.
