My first cell-phone captured shot on this blog, and of course I went abstract.  A little bit of a blue hue added in post-production.

No time for pictures today; here is a shot from last Fall

A First Sunrise

So, I bring the puppy to the beach for his first sunrise.  A true romantic, he immediately turns away from the rising sun, choosing instead to spend his time repeatedly drinking salt water, throwing it up, drinking more salt water, and throwing it up again, until the moment the sun is just about to break the horizon--at which time he decides he's had enough, picking up the nearest seashell and then prancing proudly towards the car.

A car which most certainly was not mine. 

Fortunately, we got to enjoy the sunrise alone, as his antics scared away all who approached; I guess an idyllic sunrise for most does not include the constant resonance of regurgitation and dry heaving.

 This was the closest he got to acknowledging the sunrise

Break Of Dawn

My goal for the day was to post a shot that was landscape orientation.  On that note, here is another portrait one:

A Friday Abstract

This was one of those shots that made for quite the spectacle, baffling all who strolled past: "Why is that guy laying on the ground taking a bunch of pictures of piping and garbage," I could hear them thinking.  Their inquisitiveness quickly turned to fear when I could be heard uttering, "Uh. Perfect! These pipes! They're....they're just perfect!"

There are a lot of different aspects to the framing of this shot. The distorted effect is created from shooting through two tarps (on both sides of the fence), with a light illuminating the area from behind the two ladders.  To further complicate the shot, I managed to frame it in a way that made it also resemble window frames.  Only post-editing was saturation and contrast.

Two lighting shots in a row..

This shot was a pain to get.  The exact framing I wanted places a telephone pole directly in the middle of the shot.  This is the best angle I could get, short of climbing on someone's roof...which I haven't ruled-out trying...

Parking Spaces, Ghetto

Apparently, D.F. Shea Company's parking spot is located in the ghetto:
