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…

Stuff on shelves

As promised, in what seems like a long time ago, here are some color photos from my antique shop safari. I have added a few textures during processing on some of the photos which, in my opinion, took the photos in a slightly painterly (I don’t like to overuse that term but I can’t think of anything else) direction. I…

It’s the little (junky) things

I was able to hit some antique stores over the weekend to do a little still life hunting. As regular readers will know, one of my favorite places to shoot is at antiques stores, sometimes just shooting the window displays from the street. The endless found “still life” scenes in the store displays, and by displays I mean just thrown…

In need of structure

I’m sharing a few photos of fallen structures, which are quite numerous around the rural southwest Pennsylvania. I didn’t intentionally shoot these as part of a series but I did happen to shoot them within a few days of each other. As a matter of fact, without digging into my archives, I probably have amassed a large number of old…

I think I should say something

The holidays are over so I should resume normal broadcasting. That would be great if I had a lot to say but I don’t, so I think I’ll slowly get back in the groove by just posting a few random photos. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas. See you soon!!

Time for a little down time (and to seriously look for an alternative to this mess of a blog site). Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!

Wasn’t feeling too creative this year, so……

…I am happy to report that my image “Tanked” was selected as a Peoples Choice winner in the Pattern/Texture category in the Black & White magazine contest issue #113, available now at finer newsstands everywhere.   Considering I really didn’t feel like like I had anything worth submitting this year that came as a big surprise. BUT, an even better surprise……
