This was taken from our balcony in Sorrento.  I have an entire series of this sun setting.

This image was taken in Florida,  I was admiring the reflection of the underside of this dock with the lilies floating on the water. Seemed like such a juxtaposition of  the rightside up pads and the underside of the dock.

It should be this easy but usually not.  I hate making decisions.  Like picking a stock.  If I buy it, you short it.  Found these doors in Reading PA while down at the Berk’s Jazz Fest which I usually attend each year.

Like the previous post  “Dresses with Attitude”, I used a blur vignette to make the image more dream- like.

“Dresses With Attitude”

"Dresses with Attitude"

Was in a thrift shop in Lansdale and saw these dresses hanging on the wall.  Just seemed these garments have seen some action in their day.   Probably applied too much vignette but thought I’d post this and see what people thought.

If you have some good criticism, lay it on me

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.

“Winter Blues”

Take In Iowa one cold winter morning.   It was below zero that day, a mist had come  thru that evening.  When the temperature dropped, it left a frozen land in it’s wake.

These 3 Images were taken on the same Huge cactus in Key West.    Lizards and Birds were in abundance.   It was raining so we took shelter under a gazebo  next to this cactus.   I had fun .

The next morning, I couldn’t sleep so I decided I want Sunrise images….

I walked literally from one end of the island to the other, 4 AM,  was going to stop at the pier, but there was a lot of homeless sleeping there so I felt uncomfortable staying there, so I continued on to a beach further north and captured the following images:
