Condemned

Condemned

I threatened more rural scenes and now that Buddha has healed me through my self diagnosis of Avian-Swine Flu and not Man Flu as others have hinted at.  This little house really is condemned and you can’t get enar it.  I guess I could have ignored the fence and gotten closer but I like the gnarled tree in the image.  I went for color and black and white because when I was doing the sizing in Photoshop I hit the…

Temple Reflections

Temple Reflections

I know I threatened more rural scenes but they are on my main editing computer and I’m still sick. Considering I have my laptop right in front of me which has all my travel photos that I haven’t moved to the main machine I just did the editing on it.  As Freddie Mercury said, “the show must go on” and so it did.  I went from depressing black an white to the rich vibrant colors of a temple (really a…

Still Standing

Still Standing

The Game of Thorns

The Game of Thorns

Shadows and Life

Shadows and Life

I have been looking for a shot like this for awhile and I walked out one morning on to the frigid frozen tundra (ok the parking lot) and saw the branches shadow on the building.  Still too cold to carry anything more than the trusty Canon 330 shot was taken.  I like the indistinct fuzziness of it all as it adds to the dark and moody feeling I deliberately invoked into the image. Its just been too cold to do…

Stripes and Curves

Stripes and Curves

Going abstract again but at least its in color!  I was out and about with my Olympus which seemed neglected lately and put on my 45-150mm lens and went for a walk.  Just liked how this building folded in on itself and the sunlight and the colors blended with the windows.  Some cropping to get the effect I wanted and then some time spent with the tones and I like it.
