Under The Bridge And Golden

Under The Bridge And Golden

Shot from the Route 41 bridge in Fort Myers, Florida. No idea what the real bridge name is but I do know the road name so going with that. This was shot a couple years ago. It was meant to be HDR when I was just learning about it. So I had 7 images to stack which would have introduced so much noise that it wasn’t worth the effort. The image being published is just a single image. It’s amazing…

Where The Falls Begin

Where The Falls Begin

This is the first view of Great Falls you see from the Maryland side. You walk out to an overlook that allows you to see the river where it turns into the falls. This week may be heavy on the water theme. I’ll see how I feel when I load up the rest of the images I have edit. Having the luxury of sitting on a large back catalogue I can jump around with my images. My mother who reads…

Golden Idols

Golden Idols

This was taken at Wat Nong Yai in Thailand. The same place as Stupa Steps was taken. These two were tucked under a small awning providing shade near the stupa. For the uninitiated the statue on the right is Buddha. The one on the left is Ch’i-t’zu who was a Chinese monk. It gets complex and if you want to read about it follow this link. In Thai Buddhism you will see all sorts of stuff mixed in. It’s not at…

Masts As Tall As Buildings

Masts As Tall As Buildings

This image has driven me nuts since I shot it last year. There were multiple technical issues with it that I could not overcome. Throw in the weird angle and my obsession because I liked it made me work on it till I got it right. That and I was feeling masochistic. The image was taken at the Navy Pier in Chicago. I have no idea what the boat is called but I just liked the masts of the boat…

Stupa Steps

Stupa Steps

This is another from Thailand I never published. Unlike others, this one makes a glorious HDR so I’m going with it! This image is from Wat Nong Yai which using my craptasitc Thai translates to Younger Big Temple. Nong means younger and yai means big. Thai being a tonal language I’m totally guessing since translation into English doesn’t always work cleanly unless you hear the words or can read Thai. My limited understanding means I miss tones a lot and I…

Silhouettes On The Gulf

Silhouettes On The Gulf

Still feeling inspired to go through and look at the images I never published. This one is from Thailand. I was on the beach shooting out onto the Gulf of Thailand. While technically not silhouettes the title fits. This image was shot for HDR using my Sony A7R and an adapted 24-200 Tokina lens. Since I have had time to let the images sit I can tell you the lens had more than a few issues with it. It tended…

Steps To The Buddha

Steps To The Buddha

This is an old one that I was really saving to publish to Instagram. I have been out shooting most of the day so I’m a wee bit too tired to edit. Plus when this goes live it’s a holiday here in America so took advantage of it by photographing most of the long weekend. The stairs with the naga guarding the them leading to the Buddha is at Wat Phra Yai. It was the first Buddhist temple I ever…

Canal Reflection

Canal Reflection

This is another from the unpublished archives. I shot this on one of the small canals at a regional park in Fort Myers, Florida. One of the reasons I have been going back into the archives and not publishing my more recent stuff is because I take a Photoshop class. Well, I watch videos. It’s Ming Thein’s weekly Photoshop Workshop. After watching it I just want to go through and look for an image I never published. This leads me down…

Alamo Tree

Alamo Tree

This tree is outside the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. It’s from the archives and had remained unpublished for many reasons. I was staying not too far away at the time so walked over to see the Alamo. The building that Ozzy Osbourne did not urinate on. I say that because it turns out Ozzy was so intoxicated on many things he could not have gotten in. He urinated on the statue outside of the Alamo which is where this picture was…

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

I’ll finish up the set of flowers for Valentine’s Day. Normally I like to break these things up but my schedule has been hectic and these are already edited and ready to go so I’m going with it. This set is actually when I first started to shoot the US Botanic Garden Conservatory. When I bring stuff into Photoshop it goes from the last photo I brought in to the first. So I work backwards. I was too lazy to…
