Angry Clouds Over Koh Larn

Angry Clouds Over Koh Larn

I’m guessing that this is Koh Larn as there is a small chain of islands off the coast here in Pattaya. Trying to orientate myself is next to impossible since I have a piss poor sense of direction on a good day. This is a typical Thailand morning here during the rainy season. You get awful light until the sun rises and then scorches your soul and apparently melts the clouds to make hellish humidity to add to your discomfort….

Landscapes From The Naples Zoo

Landscapes From The Naples Zoo

While I was at the Naples Zoo I snuck in a few landscape type photos. Well, close enough to landscape to count in my world. I feel more comfortable doing these edits because I have kept my hand in shooting them even if I didn’t publish them. I have been editing furiously while I am here in Florida. When I get back I will start publishing some of the older stuff I have shot. It will be a mix of…

Required Viewing

Required Viewing

This was shot on the Portland River Walk along with the previous image from here. If I was to be honest I would tell you I screwed up the name and this one was to be titled the sweet spot. Oh well. I haven’t worked in black and white lately and its been fun to do a few images. For images like this it’s just more interesting when you do a black and white because it then becomes about textures…

Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot

This was taken in Portland last year. After going through the images I found a few more that I figured I wanted to process. I remember the day I took this because it was cold and grey. I was up┬ábefore dawn and doing long exposures while the sky was still dark. As it got light I just kept pressing on and shooting not knowing what I was going to get out of it. Happy I did. I have discovered that…

Washed Ashore

Washed Ashore

I saw these logs when I took a path down towards the Willamette River in Portland. No idea how high the river gets but assume these were logs and stuff were washed ashore when the river was high from rain. I shot these with my Olympus TG-4 since it was far more maneuverable than my Sony A7R that was mounted on a tripod. I could climb on the rocks to get to the angles I was looking for instead of…

Silent Canons

Silent Canons

This shot comes form the Manassas Battlefield. This is only half the canon that was in this particular row and I don’t know how historically accurate their placement is but they were on a slight rise so strategically speaking it would have been a position to fire down on enemy troops. While I wasn’t intimidated walking up to them it would not be something that as an average soldier I would have wanted to attack. While canon themselves weren’t accurate…

The Fence

The Fence

My first monochrome image in a long time and I suspected that after reviewing the shots from Manassas Battlefield I would be doing a lot of these in monochrome just because the light was so overcast. This fence encloses the house that is on the battlefield that was used as a command center for one of the two warring armies. It’s a typical US Civil War style fence and if you have traveled or lived in a Southern state its…
