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.

Wary Doe. Backyard Summer Nature in New Jersey.

This is the doe that was on the other side of my car last evening when I was taking the pictures of the fawn. I actually took this image while still sitting in the car with the Leica D-Lux 5 point & shoot after lowering the window. The quality is OK for recording the moment, but is not the same as the images of the fawn taken with Nikon D700 DSLR.

The tomato plants on my deck were looking much better after being watered last night and the light rain this evening. The big plants now have flowers, but have not set yet. The grape or cherry plants have many green tomatoes that have set. I didn’t get images today to show the progress of the plants because it was raining, but will try tomorrow.
