Being lonely hurts.



I’m looking for a title of this one. I really like the image but I can’t figure out what I’d like to call it. A lot of photographers don’t title there pictures and maybe that’s the best thing to do with this one.

Rainy Day Alley In Thirds (Lucky Shot)


The strong verticals in this photograph neatly divide it in thirds. To be honest about it, I didn’t see this when I took the picture. It was the figure in the foreground that mattered, 

Monochrome Clouds


Yes I know this could almost be a monochrome watercolor. It isn’t though, it’s just a standard photographic image processed in Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. What makes it look this way is the fact that it was a misty day and when I used the dehaze slider in Lightroom everything softened out. That, coupled with a little more tweaking with the Nik plugin gave the soft yet contrasty image you see here.

Just Red


This Is Hard To Look At


Taking the kind of pictures I often do means sometimes showing the harder side of life. This lady was pretty obviously out of her mind.

I didn’t really notice her until I was very near her. She turned around and started violently screaming at me. I probably should have stopped and tried to figure out if I could help her. 

I didn’t do it. Instead, I took a very quick picture and got out of her way. 

In retrospect, I feel badly about that.

Color Wheel


Sometime the photography gods bestow treasures on those who aren’t expecting them. To wit, yesterday we had stopped for a cup of coffee and a snack in the town of Jenner before going on to a rock climbing site that Sarah’s son wanted to try. I pulled in the lot and got out of the car and there immediately below me was this little kayak mooring site. All it took was one click.
