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:

“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.
