Reflecting On The View

Reflecting On The View

This is another one of those Fort Myers, Florida sunsets that I captured (I got a lot of them). I was on the River Walk and I saw the puddle left over from the frequent storms and saw the reflection along with everyone sitting there and enjoying the sunset so I figured why not take a picture. Think it worked out. Editing wise I didn’t go over on the filters and masks I applied to the image. Once I had…

Abstract Flora

Abstract Flora

This set will be a bit more abstract than normal because it’s all about light and shadow. I actually shot this while walking to the little convenience store near my Mom’s house. I took my Sony RX100M3 out with me and just took a bunch of images while walking to and back. I knew what I wanted out of the images when I took them. Editing wise I went for a mix of monochrome or color based on how the…

Drops On The Water

Drops On The Water

I was planning on doing sets this week but my body reminded me I am old and staying up late to attend a concert means I’m rather useless the next day so no editing. Good thing I worked a bit ahead! I took this when I did the storm photo. Where the Sony A7R had the filter on the lens, I just used my phone to take the picture. I have mentioned before I like the Nexus 6P as a…

DCA to RSW and Back

DCA to RSW and Back

I always take airport photos. It helps pass the time when you are bored waiting for your flight. So I shot this series over days I was flying to Fort Myers, Florida and when I returned home to Washington, DC. I used my Nexus 6P and the Camera FV-5 app which allows me to shoot in raw. This gives me a bit more latitude with the images than I otherwise would have out of a phone shooting straight jpeg. I…

Whither the Storm

Whither the Storm

While I don’t always do it Sunday is the weirder stuff I will have shot and edited. I’m not sure how this image will go over because its rather bleak but I did like it. I shot this off a pier on the Caloosahatchee River with a 10 stop neutral density filter on the camera. It was the first time I was using square glass filters versus a circular one. The storm had come in unexpectedly (not really in Florida) so…

Summer Blossoms

Summer Blossoms

Not feeling in the mood to edit a landscape I went ahead and fell back to something I can edit in my sleep and without a lot of thought – flowers. I shot these while walking to work and figured I might as well edit them. I am going to do a few series in the upcoming days and I might as well get used to multiple edits, not the flowers require a whole lot of time or effort from…

The Blue Channel

The Blue Channel

I return to Matlacha, Florida for the image today. I shot this while walking down the main road through Matlacha and just saw the cool blue channel leading out into the Gulf of Mexico. Nothing special editing again. Still trying to get out of vacation mode and editing anything complex isn’t worth it right now because I’ll obsess over it and then never save it. Easier to stick to simple edits that work and then go from there. So as…

Down The Lighted Path

Down The Lighted Path

This is the actual Fort Myers River Walk (least what I call it). It runs from basically one yacht club to another. I have walked the entire distance and I am not sure how long it is but it’s not a bad walk. Of course I was stopping to take pictures often but there were lots of people out strolling the path even later into the evening when I was heading back to pack up my gear for the night….

Something Missing At Sunset

Something Missing At Sunset

This is a pier looking thing on the Caloosahatchee River near a restaurant. I wanted to get closer to it but there were warning tape on the walkway and an angry looking guy smoking a cigarette guarding the path. So I set up as near as possible without violating the same. I have no idea what happened to the pier thing but it’s clearly missing some parts and is loaded with warning tape. While the structure serves as a visual…

Into The Blue Unknown

Into The Blue Unknown

This image is another one from Matlacha, Florida where I did my only daytime photography. The outside temperatures were just too hot to do anything until it cooled off in the evening with the sun starting to set. I titled this Into the Blue Unknown and it’s all about the clouds which seem common in this part of Florida. As for the unknown portion it’s really the Gulf of Mexico. So it’s not unknown at all. Just sounds more mysterious…
