Girl Statue and Waterfall in Garden

I took this image today at the Selby Gardens in Sarasota, FL.

I think it has a weird vibe to it.  Almost like it was for a horror story or movie.
If you stare at her long enough she will look up at you. No…really. LOL.

Taken with Canon 70D with a Tamron 16-300mm lens, shot @ 55mm, F7, 1/100, ISO 400.

Barn on Pond in BW

Guess what day it is?
Yup, day 4 of 5 of my Black and White challenge.
This is not far our house.  Just a nice barn on a small pond.
Makes me think of the holidays.

Early Morning Golf

I’ve been very busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to upload new images. Anyway, here is something I came up with yesterday.

What are your thoughts? Can’t tell you hard it was to get the ball in focus, lol. Sunrise image is from Miami beach.

Michael Stanley with painted effect

Growing up in the Cleveland, it’s hard not to be a Michael Stanley fan.
I’ve photographed him since 1980. LOTS of great shows between then and now.

I recently spent some time and did a painted Photoshop effect to one of my favorite images of Michael.  I like the way it turned out. Nice textures.

What do you think?

Colorful McDonalds

Here is an image I created years ago.  It involved bracketing kodalith film over 6 stops.  I then did  6 double exposures onto slide film. A long way to go to make the image.  Was it worth it?  You tell me.
This was one of the 1st McDonalds in the Cleveland, OH area.  It no longer is standing.

Stairway inside Lighthouse Tower

This is the stairway inside the Corrola, NC. lighthouse.

I forget how many steps it is, 300+, but it is a good workwork.

I like the spiral effect the stairway makes.  This image was taken with my cell phone, HTC One X.

Vintage Chevy

I found this old Chevy truck.  For this image I played with some filters to give it an old feeling, and then added a boarder.  I think it turned out pretty nice.
