Photo Du Jour


February 10, 2017 Dome of the Rock

“Dome of the Rock” © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I wanted to take a step back from lens reviews and the gear of 2017 to share a travel photo from a couple of years back. I keep a gallery of images that I’d like to post to social media at some point […]

February 1, 2017 Forgiven

Forgiven © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott This is a portrait of one of my friends. If you can’t tell, he has a bit of a past. But today he’s got a smile on his face, a beautiful wife, and a regular spot in the church that I pastor. His life is a […]

January 27, 2017 Come On In, The Door’s Open

“Come On In, The Door’s Open” © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Winter seems to be swallowing this old ramshackle farmhouse that is one of my favorite local shooting spots. Yet the “spirit” of the old house is still welcoming; the front door stands open. “Come on in and make yourself at home. […]

January 6, 2017 Painting the West

Painting the West © 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I’ve just returned from an extended trip to the American Southwest, and specifically the state of Arizona.

December 13, 2016 Remembering Autumn

Spring in particular is a brief interlude between late winter and a quick transition to summer. But sometimes things are the sweeter for their brevity. This is a photo […]

November 11, 2016 A Unique Perspective

A Unique Perspective © 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott The Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero D is the widest focal length I’ve ever used on full frame. It is extremely wide, but it can focus down very close (about 7 inches/18cm – and that is from the camera sensor). You can get within a […]

October 31, 2016 Buddies

Buddies © 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I just finished up my full review of the new Tamron SP 150-600mm G2 lens (Video Review Part 1:  | Video Review Part 2:  | Text Review: ) This is a wide open, f/6.3 shot at 600mm, and it shows off the fact that the new […]

October 25, 2016 Autumn Rains

“Autumn Rains” © 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott Autumn rains can sometimes be the harbinger of the cold weather to come. The air temperature drops, the wind blows cold gusts, and the leaves are driven from the trees. But the cooler air temperatures mean the raindrops tend to linger on the deep veined […]
