Prague Reimaged – Part 1

Prague Reimaged – Part 1

I went to Prague I think in 2011 but not 100% sure without checking my old passport. It seems about right but I honestly don’t know because I switch computers and the library’s got slightly messed up. Still the images are older and shot with the long gone Canon XSi. I believe all the images also were shot using a Tamron 18-200 lens which was absolute crap. Not all lenses are created equal and that lens wasn’t even up to…

Fallen and Broken

Fallen and Broken

Finally home after 6 glorious (not) nights in a hotel 15 minutes from my apartment. So close yet so far away. It’s good to be back on my own editing┬árig. While I had use of a 23″ monitor it was a pain to use. So the first thing I did after dumping my luggage was hook up my laptop again. This is an older photo I found while looking for some other images. No idea why I never published it….

Clouds In The Distance

Clouds In The Distance

This has been my view this week in my hotel room. I came in to do some work (nap) in my room and I saw this and figured why not grab a quick shot. Shooting through a window is always fun so I hope I took out all the imperfections but the monitor isn’t the best. I return home tonight and I will have finally be able to edit properly again. Enjoy!

Thursday Evening Drive

Thursday Evening Drive

There almost wasn’t an image today. I am living out of a hotel room in Washington DC which is only about 30 minutes from my place. With my work schedule it makes it difficult to edit photos. However, I had an early day so I drove home to do some laundry and after debating on returning or not I did return to my room because I have an insane start time. On the return drive I shot this image on…

Between The Sticks

Between The Sticks

Likely the last I will show from the sunset on the Potomac stuff I shot on the DC Waterfront. I have more-or-less processed all of them. Sorry for the quality or the lack there-of as I am working in a hotel room on much smaller monitors. There comes a point when squinty and guessing are just going to have to be good enough. Enjoy!

Details in Abstract – Part 2

Details in Abstract – Part 2

Final upload of the plant stuff then moving on to other things. I am on travel this week so I did all the processing ahead of time. I am hoping to get out and do some shooting this week of where I am at to test out my new lens but its hard to say. If I miss a day because I haven’t had time to process images or shoot then please understand I am busy. Travel for work is…

Details In Abstract – Part 1

Details In Abstract – Part 1

When I originally went to the US Botanic Gardens I went to shoot the leaves and other interesting non-flower bits. I knew it would be in monochrome and in an abstract type way. When you shoot monochrome you bring out the features that often aren’t visible in color. Post processing these images was done as usual. Moved them into Photoshop and went from there. I really tried to highlight the features of each image to and let it speak for…

Monochromatic Blooms

Monochromatic Blooms

I didn’t want to use flowers in the title. Blooms sounds more artful? Plus some people will find what I did sacrilege because I took perfectly good looking flowers from color to monochromatic. The reason for the monochromatic conversion was that there was something wrong with the images in color. With the conversion to monochrome you get a lot more detail out of the flower and you see the underlying patterns that color tends to obscure. I tried to keep…

Getting Nautical

Getting Nautical

Wasn’t much in the mood for editing anything today. Sometimes its a struggle to sit in front of the screens and go through images. I just was going through my Thailand shots which always makes me happy and I found these. Was just going to do one image but I figured why not do 4 because its Thailand and I miss it. Then again, it was like 34C when I shot these images and I was sweating to death so…

Verdant Green

Verdant Green

Returning to Thailand for this image. After so many days of doing series I need a break to just edit one photo. This was shot in my favorite temple in Thailand and not the Thai temple but the Chinese temple that is rarely visited. You get the entire place to yourself because the tour buses are dumping the people at the Thai area with a giant Buddha. The Thai’s also head that way except those of Chinese decent which is…
