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.


Three-Years Ago Today — New Jersey

Autumn Indoor Nature. Scutigera coleoptrata; house centipede (not a silverfish). They are supposed to be a good thing going after spiders and other insects in the house. Some folks think they are really creepy. Image taken with a Nikon D700 and 105 mm f/2.8 VR Macro (ISO 400, 105 mm, f/16, 1/60 sec) with SB-900 Flash. Raw image processed with Capture One Pro 7, Photoshop CC, and Focus Magic.
