Orchids in Black and White

Well it’s day 5 of 5 in the Black and White challenge.
Thanks to my friend Jerry Ireland for including me in this.
This is one of our orchids.  We, Angela Aristizabal-Myeress and I,
have about 8 plants.  Most bloom several times a year.

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.

This is for day 3 of my 5 day Black and White challenge.

This was taken at sunrise at Matheson Hammock Park
in Miami at low tide.

Beautiful morning at beautiful location.

Day 2 of Black and White Challenge

This is near the top, or summit, or Pikes Pike.

I got of my car to take this image.  Fog rolled in very quickly.  I took 3 shots and then they were completely fogged out.  Got there just in time.

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?
