Monochrome in a colorful place

I decided to finally visit the Palace of Gold in Moundsville, West Virginia after putting it off for decades. I don’t live too far from there yet I almost never even think about going. But it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I was wondering what I could photograph that would be different and I though it would be a nice time…

Getting squiggly with it

I am not squiggly. Just some plants reflecting in wavy pond water. I know, it’s a ho-hum photo but I did want to post something since I’ve been away for a while. It’s generally not a good idea to post ones crappy photos but I felt like I had to do something. I’ll be back soon with some black and…

Shooting vicariously through others

My photography output has been awfully low these past few months. I think I have shot less than I have in years. Why? Just a combination of things – first the usual suspects such as work and home, followed by the total lack of anything to shoot. I know, I have pretty much created my “style” around shooting anything and…

Looking at details

As I mentioned in past posts I am going to occasionally critique my own work on this site. I am critiquing to not only confirm what I already know what is wrong with some of my photos but hopefully to help you better understand how photos can be improved through thought and composition. My first photo is a simple tropical…

Cubism

In my last post that I titled a whirlwind of activity I found that I failed to mention any activity. Since the post before that one, my old computer died and I had to get a new one and start all over with installing programs, getting used to Windows 10, reinstalling programs, getting aggravated with windows 10, finding workarounds to…

A whirlwind of activity

I know it’s been over a month since my last post and honestly I never realized how fast time was flying by. I surprised I still have a few visitors every day because it would appear that I abandoned this site. But I’m still here! Well, for the time being at least. I have an idea for another site more…

Greetings from Little Havana

The real Havana has been in the news a lot these days but I, being a mere normal working American, can only come as close as the Miami neighborhood of Little Havana. Not quite the same but a pleasurable place nonetheless. My wife and I enjoyed a few days in Miami Beach, just kicking back and trying to escape the…

Drop those greens!!

As I have been traveling along rural roads I have been noticing some nice wild flowers and how they contrast so nicely with the surrounding greenery. The colors are beautiful and some of the flowers are incredibly tiny. Whenever I had the opportunity I tried to grab a quick few shots of the flowers. Although I loved the colors I…

That big bright light, those colors!!

Yes, it’s Springtime in the northeast USA. It has also been a while since I’ve been out and about with my camera to simply take some photos. And I have to tell you, it feels good after what was a mild winter, but a winter nonetheless. Although I was shooting some spring blossoms here and there, which is almost a…

Doll or dull?

I really haven’t been getting out to shoot as much as I should lately. I really feel like I’m getting a bit soft and I constantly need to keep my “eye” in shape. The up and down weather, being busy with the day job, and my lack of travel outside of the home area has taken a toll on my…
