Glen Echo

I just acquired a 25mm 1.4 Vidicon  lens and wanted to play with it.  This is an adapted lens for my Olympus E-P2 that I paid $60 for.  I drive past Glen Echo Park every night going home and like the sign and it seemed a perfect place to play with the new lens.  I converted the image to black and white then used a mask to bring the colors out.  I also increased the background color to get the building to just appear.

Sad Angle

Arlington National Cemetery again.  If you live near the DC area I highly recommend a photo trip out there.  You may think it is creepy to be surrounded by dead bodies under your feat but it’s really a tranquil and peaceful place.  I have shot there several times now and the staff and visitors make it a pleasant place to just visit and shoot.
