This summer I went on an interesting hike with my son and daughter-in-law. My plan was to stroll through Ferndell Nature Trail which is basically flat, covered by shade trees, and brimming with plants from all over the world. I guess you could call it an urban oasis. I shot this Elephant Ear there, and […]
Art is anything you can get away with. – Marshall McLuhan I wasn’t planning to post anything tonight. I was about to turn off my computer when I saw this photograph from my previous adventure at the old zoo. I altered (slightly) the look of the cave exterior, and that really IS my friend inside. […]
You don’t take a photograph. You make it. Ansel Adams I’ve been going through some of the images I shot Saturday, trying to see how to make them look artsy, or more unique. I’m still teaching myself how to use Photoshop and Lightroom, so it’s always fun to see what you can do in the programs. […]
Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star, And everybody’s in movies, it doesn’t matter who you are. The Kinks, Celluloid Heroes I’m sharing the end of yesterday’s day trip first, since it’s something I’m pretty darn proud of. I actually made it to the TOP of the mountain, so not only did I view the Hollywood sign […]
Don’t go in there! 😉 I ended up back around the old zoo today. It’s so beautiful outside, and they have some (gentle) inclines to walk (but I really felt it in my hamstrings!). I think I should get a Fitbit someday and see just how much walking I really do when I go out.
Yesterday I took a walk along the Los Angeles river again, and there wasn’t much out there. I got in some good exercise though, and it was really warm out! Anyway, I took a photo of the path I walk, and today added some mountains and sky that I shot from my living room window, […]
A Day Near Griffith Park
I made a mistake in my post last night (early this morning) about the roses. I started out merging two separate flowers, but it was actually an overlay of the same rose that I ended up doing. Not that it matters, but I realized that this morning. They just look different because of the overlay […]
These are two more bird shots from today
Here’s a black and white, sketchy pigeon. I’m really surprised how much he looks like a cartoon! I’ve been trying to think of a funny caption for him… but I just can’t put my finger on one. I decided to spend at least an hour per day walking around the city, to take in new scenery and photograph new […]
Pssst! Are you here for the rave?!?
Spray painted quotes that make you wonder…
I’m still not great at candid shots of strangers, although it’s not due to lack of advice from Streets of Nuremberg. I seem to be accumulating a lot of backs and buns. (No… I don’t have some weird fetish!) Anyway… this is my zoo collection: Peace and love everyone!
Another one of my favorites!
It’s a Zoo out there. Literally!
Peace and love everyone! Until next year… Janet
Stepping outside of my comfort zone today, I took a shot at a stranger. I officially tiptoed into the realm of street photography. It was exciting!
