Up Stairs

Looking up a random second story stairwell in Salem, Oregon. Made it pop a little in monochrome and added noise to give it a little age, taken with my cellphone. Mouse over to see the before image. (Tutorial at right.)

Not exactly a fence, but close.....

Hone bee attached to a flower bud. It took a lot of shutter presses to get this one from my new camera, Pentax Q. Taken with the regular lens and +4 close-up filter, I think it came out quite well. Still learning the finer points of this camera, but it is quite small and fun to use. I have more images coming.....

McDowell Creek in Infrared

It's not that I am not taking photos, I am. Its just getting on here and posting to my blog that has somehow become a chore. I have a backlog of images I can post but linking up to the meems is becoming a stumbling point I think. I just need to get back to photography and not worry about pats on the head. :-) True IR image taken with my little Olympus 2020 a couple weeks ago. With summer looming on the near horizon, it is time to dust this camera off and get out there more!

From the full moon we had last Saturday, overlooking the valley I drive through every day. I thought it would be a good location and it looks better than expected.

Royal Terrace Falls Bridge

A lovely little footbridge in the McDowell Creek park in front of the Royal Terrace Falls. The trees are just sprouting leaves and gives just a slight hide for both the falls and the bridge. I really like how it came out.
