December 5, 2017 The Way We Were

The Way We Were © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott The march of time is irresistable. We all get older day by day. I’ve been blessed with a lovely wife who is aging magnificently and I am deeply in love with after more than 20 years of marriage. Still, the two of us […]

December 3, 2017 Waiting for Christmas

Waiting for Christmas © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott My daughter is always gung-ho for Christmas. She’s been out buying decorations for her room (including the tree shown in the defocused area here) and even has done a “room tour” for her YouTube channel (which you can find here:). So when I asked […]

November 22, 2017 Fresh Snow

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Winter made an early appearance around here, but it was a beautiful snowfall, with mild temperatures following it. Perfect for a walk though the woods laden with fresh snow. I used a different kind of combination for this shot -a Vello accelerator that uses glass elements to […]

November 5, 2017 Steps to the Moon

“Steps to the Moon” © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Every now and then I want to stretch a few creative muscles. I shot this original image with a very empty, washed out sky behind it. It was screaming for something more dramatic, particularly from the angle (and depth of field) that I […]

November 4, 2017 The End of Cottage Season

The End of Cottage Season © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott The Canadian province of Ontario (where I live) boasts some 250,000(!!!) lakes, so there are few places you can travel in Ontario without a reasonably close lake at hand. The warmer months of the year are, for many people, devoted to spending […]

October 28, 2017 One Last Autumn Drive

One Last Autumn Drive © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Those of you who live in a place that gets the four seasons know what I’m talking about. You can go from riotous colors one day to a sudden moment where it seems like 80% of the trees have dropped their leaves and […]

October 27, 2017 First Frosts

First Frosts © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Early frosts while the colors of autumn remain are pretty special photo opportunities, and I’m always glad to have access to some Zeiss glass when those moments arrive. Here’s one from the Zeiss Milvus 2/50M that I’m reviewing at the moment. Beautiful bokeh, great detail, […]

October 23, 2017 Warsaw Uprising

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I discovered an incredible location not far from where I live. It is near an Ontario, Canada community estabilished by Polish immigrants, and retains a strong Polish heritage. I was driving along, enjoying the fall foliage, when I saw this incredble mound and what appeared like a […]
