Images from West Point

The following are just 2 of the many images I captured during my visit to West Point a few years back.  I was impressed with the precision, the uniformity of the recruits at this institution.  These images, to me, represent many things, like I stated the precision and uniformity, but also the respect, the pride, the structure, the cohesiveness, the atmosphere of camaraderie!



This was taken during the national anthem.  This represents the  precision throughout this stadium, like they all are one!  Notice the darker blue hat of the cadet in the top of the image.  This was actually a navy cadet present amongst the West Point cadets.  All as one.



Taken on the parade grounds.  It was very overcast and dark that day and I was so busy capturing the moment that my camera settings weren’t properly set, hence the blur.   In a way, it captures the movement of the march.  Again, precision, uniformity, just an impressive display of discipline.

“Me Myself and I”

It’s the Thursday Night Special


Taken in Paris

This is a composite taken from 2 images

One of the driving forces behind my photography is the shear enjoyment  of being able to “play” with those images once downloaded.

So here was fertile ground.  Great subject. Not the greatest camera, but perfect for this image.  So, a year later I come across these images and started to play.

I started with an image and a background


Cut out my other images

     blend1644dblend1644a -1

beginningJuggle copy as Smart Object-1

Actually not quite that simple .  The cutting out of the image was tedious to say the least.  but with some editing, thank you Photoshop, it came out OK.  This was my 1ST attempt at editing to this degree in Photoshop.
