Selfies

CAUTION: To avoid injury, please remain at least 6 feet away from the cliff’s edge (and other people) before you pan in and shoot. This is another shot from my old hike to “the Hollywood Sign.” I was working on the “sketch” effect and wasn’t even sure what I’d do with the image, until I […]

Through A Crack

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. […]

Photography Fun

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. […]

Uncaptioned

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 […]

Zoo: People Watching

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!
