Gold Fading To Blue

Gold Fading To Blue

This is a sunset on the Caloosahatchee River. I have published similar images before but I always masked stuff in. This is straight out of the camera relatively speaking. Not going to write up too much about this. It’s one of those images that you get lucky to capture with a camera and it turns out well. It’s just being at the right place at with a camera and a tripod. Editing wise nothing but loading my A7R camera profiles…

Around The Bench

Around The Bench

I shot this at Brookside Gardens at some point but I honestly don’t remember when. Could have been Spring or Summer I really have no idea anymore. To be honest this was a compromise photo to fill out the week. I am working on a series that is an absolute nightmare to edit and I just hit the wall with it so I stopped and stepped away. I just started to go through the archives until I found something I…

Koi Las Vegas

Koi Las Vegas

I shot this when I was on my last trip to Las Vegas. I was working an event there so I got permission to shoot the photo from the representative at Planet Hollywood. It made for a much nice experience instead of worrying about a random security person coming up and asking me what I was doing. I don’t have a lot of love for Vegas. I got shipped there for work. I only went once for personal for a…

Fade To The Stars

Fade To The Stars

I have published the landscape version of this photo before. I figured why not publish the portrait version. You get a whole different perspective of the image. The image shifts all over the place color wise. You go from the black water to the bright bridge light reflecting off it. Then you have the bridge itself and the buildings in the distant. They all twinkle like stars at night. However, there are real stars visible. That isn’t noise in the…

Blue Hour Clouds

Blue Hour Clouds

Since I was playing in the archives I came across some night shots I never published. This would be one of them from when I was in Fort Myers, Florida. Which I will be heading to in about 30 days. This is is the magical blue hour that photographers talk about. While it may look like a product of rain or a storm the reality is that is just the clouds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico and with…

Vertically Natured

Since I was in the archives with the Portland, Oregon photo from yesterday I figured why not see what else was there. For the flower lover(s) out there I clicked on the stuff I shot at the Portland Rose Gardens. It’s strange what I will and will not let through anymore. I know these images aren’t great. Still, I figured why not.¬†Sometimes you need to let go and just go with what you want. I know there are flaws in…

Bridge Among The Clouds

Bridge Among The Clouds

I took this photo in Portland out of an Uber while a group of us were heading to dinner at Pok Pok. They specialize in food from South East Asia and in particular North/North East areas of Thailand. If you know Thailand that means Issan! I will be making a visit to Udon Thani this year so will see how authentic their fare is.¬†I will tell you that if you have never been to Thailand but enjoy Thai cuisine most…

Cutting Through

Cutting Through

This is from Great Falls earlier this year when I went out for a New Year’s hike with my Sony A7R and a polarizing filter. The weather was nice and it wasn’t that crowded so it was a pleasant day out. One of the things I have been late to the game with has been polarizing filters. Sure, you can somewhat reproduce the results with editing software but there is still something about a good polarizing filter that makes an…

Sunrise On A Gazebo

Sunrise On A Gazebo

I took two different shots of the gazebo at Antietam. One from the front and this one. Considering the light I guess I didn’t take them that far apart. If there was a hell for photo editing this image is likely involved. I have edited this image at least 10 times. This is finally the version I settled on. Part of the problem was the light and how the camera metered it. It did some really funky things and I…

Road To Yonder

Road To Yonder

Title came from a comic I read as a kid. Guy walks up to two other guys and asks for directions. One of the men answers and and says ‘It’s yonder’. The man asking for direction leaves. The other man who didn’t talk then asks the man that gave directions if he actually knew where he sent the other man. He replied, ‘Always wondered where yonder is’. This isn’t the most fabulous image I ever took in my life. In…
