Moving a monastery to Miami

On Friday, after checking out of our hotel in Miami, we had a few hours to fill before heading to the airport. I remembered seeing a sign for an “Ancient Spanish Monastery” during our travels and thought that it may be worth exploring to waste some time and grab a few photos. It was easy enough to find, situated on a…

Looking at a wall

I don’t have much to discuss about this photo – I simply liked the textures and color combinations. This was taken the other night when I was looking around in the antique store windows. I took a spin around the block to walk through the alley when I noticed the green “stacked” doors. I thought they looked interesting and I…

325-126 All about texture

I’m kind of running out of time tonight so I’ll keep the text short. I did my usual ride around town again and although not looking for anything in particular, I found textures more than anything. My 365 shot is just an odd sight on the side of an old building downtown. What the purpose is I have no idea but…

365-112 I’ll go easy on you today

I won’t do any rambling story on the photo background today. No reason, just don’t have much to say. So, until tomorrow, enjoy! Two Blue Doors

365-111 De-dazzler

After being dazzled by spring color and flowers the past few days, I thought I would try going back to my usual subjects. What are my usual subjects? Looking at my past work, I have no idea! In a way, I like that though. I’m not constrained by visual boundaries I set on myself. Free to shoot whatever, however. All…

365-90 Back alley blues

On my way to the grocery store today, I detoured through an alley in town and grabbed a few shots. I have most of the main streets in town memorized as far as photo possibilities that I have to find new places to explore. Back alleys always offer something of interest that few get to see, so they’re worth exploring on occasion.…

365-70 Urban shooting

I saw this large sticker that was starting to peel off of a building and thought it could be interesting from a different angle. This is behind what was once a coffee shop. A little bit of urban art, I guess, in an alley. A rare sight where I live. even though my town has a few art galleries and…

365-49 Graffiti can be fun

Saw this graffiti on a closed movie theater and since it was a warm day in February, it just seemed right. The sunshine not only enhanced the colors but also the mood of everyone today.  It seemed like people were out and about today and looking like they were enjoying themselves. Too bad the weather goes back downhill next week. Pentax K20D,…

365-42 Weathered surface

I didn’t get out to shoot much today. So, I thought I would shoot…..a brick. I have a pile of bricks in my yard and this one on top attracted my eye. I liked the holes and shadow. I used a touch of orton for effect but I have a straight version which I’ll throw on here along with a different angle.…

365-40 Cold facts

So you’re probably thinking, “David, ice AGAIN?” It has been a prominent subject of mine this winter but it’s the one thing I see when I look around. I wonder if people who live near the beach in a warm climate get tired of palm trees, sand, and surf pictures. I somehow doubt it.  I actually wanted to try some processing options…
