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 (23-May-2017) — New Jersey

Walkabout in my backyard with a Leica T camera and 18-56 mm zoom lens. Rhododendron flowers, wildflower daisies flowers, and poppies buds about to open. My most hated weed — the “Mile-a-Minute” vine. The vine is not native, and was probably brought in my the deer. It gets its name from how fast it grows. In the last few years it has killed and destroyed many of my trees. I am trying to find wildflowers that grow faster and will keep the vine from further expansion. Also, some insect appears to be nibbling on the leaves of the vine — just not fast enough.
