Sit Back And Relax

Sit Back And Relax

I have continued to explore the archives after finding so many shots I never edited. This is another one and my jaw honestly hit my desk. It’s a gorgeous image and there was no way I wasn’t going to publish it. I took this photo when I was in Delray Beach, Florida a few years ago. I was using my Olympus EM1 and the very new Olympus 12-40 2.8 lens. I know exactly why I didn’t publish this before. There…

Walk On A Fall Day

Walk On A Fall Day

It is without fail I end up missing when the leaves are changing colors in fall. I am usually on travel and when I return the last thing I want to do is grab a camera and go shoot. Still, I wanted to get out and capture what I could with what leaves are left. When I took this picture I was wrapping up for the day. Heading towards my car and just shooting as I went. I was at…

Restaurant On The Bay

Restaurant On The Bay

I had to go find a photo I took a few years ago so I was digging through my archives. I found some photos I never published. I have no reason for not editing them other than I guess I didn’t have the skills back then. My editing from when I started to where I am now is two different worlds. I never used Photoshop, I didn’t have a Wacom tablet, I had no idea what layer masks were, and…

The Reflecting Pool

The Reflecting Pool

This is the small pool that is in the Korean Garden area of Meadowlark Gardens. There are a lot of structures there and you can spend a few minutes wandering around and taking photos. I am not sure I ever took a photo of this pool before. If I didn’t I doubt it was at this angle. I setup my tripod low to get the angle. Once I was happy it was just trying different focal lengths until I got…

Boats At Bali Hai

Boats At Bali Hai

It’s Thanksgiving here in America. It’s normally a period of time that I am on travel using the holiday to get out and go do something. Last year I was in Thailand and this year I am not so why not revisit Thailand. I took these images all on my Canon S100 as I had it with me. Just took a wander around Bali Hai Pier with camera in hand and just took a bunch of snapshots. I wasn’t in photographer mode….

Forest Path

Forest Path

This was taken at Meadowlark Gardens on a path that leads around a small pond. Not sure if it started as an official path but it is now because there are seats there now. It’s a bit muddy after a rain but it’s a quick way to get to other parts of the park. I setup up the shot because I really liked the light coming in from the side. It gave the leaves a bit of a glow and the…

The Distant Lighthouse

The Distant Lighthouse

It seems that with me moving my photo library to it’s new drive I found more images to edit. In fact, I shockingly did a series for later this week. Plus it’s now cold and I miss Thailand where all these images are from. I shot this from the Bali Hai pier using my Canon S100. I have shot the lighthouse before but much closer not from this angle. I was just standing there and I thought it looked cool with…

It’s Monday

It’s Monday

I found this image while I was doing some catalogue moving and cleanup. I was moving my stuff to a new 8tb drive and was dumping memory cards to make sure I got everything and I saw the cat and figured why not. Would make a perfect Monday image. The cat in question is from Thailand. Stray dogs and cats are very common. You get used to seeing them around. The cats seem to fare better than the dogs in…

Dawn Over The Rolling Hills

Dawn Over The Rolling Hills

Returning to Sharpsburg, Maryland for this dawn photo shot at the Antietam National Battlefield Park. I have been relying heavy on the dawn shots because they are extremely rare for me. I’m more of an evening photographer versus a morning one. If I have a choice of sleeping in or going out for a sunrise shoot I can guarantee sleeping will win. So it’s a bit of a treat for me to edit these. This is a HDR photo but…

Fence In The Woods

Fence In The Woods

There are parts of Meadowlark Gardens that are fenced off to prevent people from walking in them. When I saw the light and all the texture on this portion I figured why not take a picture. Interestly enough I did this image in monochrome. I wasn’t happy with it. Normally I use monochrome to bring out textures but it just lost something in the conversion. I even did the conversion two different ways and masked in bits and still didn’t…
