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.


Today — New Jersey

Beard or No Beard. My passport is valid for less than 6 months, and many countries will not let you enter with less than 6 months, so I need to have the passport renewed. I decided that I wouldn't have the bushy beard on the passport photo so started cutting it off today. The battery on ran out at this point. Should I take the rest off? (Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 56 mm f/1.2 lens. I had to guess at the focus point, trying to get the eyes in focus as I moved from the camera on a tripod to standing in front of the "Tree of Life with Birds" sand painting from Bagan, Burma.
