Antiquity meets Modernity

Antiquity meets Modernity

The theme here is that there are elements of the modern in all off these images. The courtyard image is a bit of a stretch because the only modern objects there are the lights but I really liked the image and the first time I published it, it was done in black and white and I left it in color this time. So please enjoy.

Jungle meets Civilization

Jungle meets Civilization

Yesterday’s image was to be apart of this series but I wanted it to stand alone. All of these have the theme of having the jungle on the edge of civilization. In Panama, there isn’t much to the country except Panama City which dominates it. The jungle surrounds the city and the various suburbs. It’s an interesting environment. The ironic thing is I shot all these images in Panama Viejo or Old Panama which is the site of the original settlement…

The Commute

The Commute

This is one of my most detailed edited images I think I have ever done. If you look for the flaws they are there but I really tried to clear and blend them away so it didn’t distract from the image. I don’t think I have ever bonded with the clone stamp tool as much as I did with this image. With all that said, its one of my favorites I think. It was going to be apart of another…

Mooring the Day Away

Mooring the Day Away

Not sure if I shared this image or one similar to it before. One of the issues with the light in Panama was that it changed constantly! It could go from tropical sun to flat light in a matter of minutes. It made shooting in Thailand seem heavenly since the usual light is bright and intense. The issue with these water pictures was that everything was flat and punching color wasn’t going to work because the light would go blue…

Framed View

Framed View

Going to the well again for images I have shot but never published. These are from Panama, in particular Old Panama City also know as Panama Viejo. Strangely enough while the tourist attraction itself wasn’t that great, it was one of the better spots I shot in. I pretty much had the place to myself as it was “closed” but a quick $5 to the guy whose property was next to it and who conveniently had a hole in his…

Stuck in Transport

Stuck in Transport

I forgot I had this shot. I took it last week and totally forgot. It seemed too good to let languish in the library unseen. While I would have preferred more motion blur but I had the shutter speed up high enough to freeze it. The editing does give it a sense of motion and I left the grain in from the black and white conversion and then gave it a cinematic crop. I just really like the people you…

Show Some Emotion

Show Some Emotion

Musicians and singers make great faces! I figured I am sitting on a bunch of them so why not share out for the world to see. I have also not had time to go and shoot anything meaningful lately so I’m going to the well. Plus most of this stuff has never been seen before. If I keep with the theme of concerts its because I am shooting another on Monday so be prepared for an onslaught of metal music…

One Man. Three Faces.

One Man. Three Faces.

I have no idea who the guy is. Just one of the random opening bands I shot. I tend to shoot the small acts as warm up for the main. I know it sounds weird, but I like to warm up before I shoot. Most are just garbage images that I toss away but it helps get me into a frame of mind to slow down and enjoy the experience of taking pictures. I will admit that shooting and event…
