A childhood throwback, a brightly colored carousel. Walking around Tours while on vacation in France, and saw this technicolor memory. I then used PhotoShop filters to create artwork. The scenes around the top of the carousel reminded me of the 1st Marry Poppins movie when Bert is drawing on the sidewalk. The title comes fromContinue reading “Retro Technicolor”
An early photo of mine that I still love. I was walking around the harbor of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the morning and I saw this small rowboat anchored in the water. Usually, the rowboats I see are plain white or brown, so the colors really popped when I saw the boat. The early morning lightContinue reading “Row, Row, Row, Your Boat”
Applying those Neural Filters to my 10-year-old Cheetah photo, I’ve been having fun! The following photos are of the 80s-created animals.
I’ve started fooling around with Photoshop’s art style filters. Below is my starting photo, an old shot of a tiger in the Zoo. The art style filters are “Neural Filters” in the Filter drop-down box. Then select “Style Transfer, and select the different styles in the Presets. The last step is to play around withContinue reading “They’re Great”
I love watching jellyfish, they are graceful and ethereal creatures but they do sting. Best to view it from afar, or in an aquarium. The below photos are from an aquarium but they have been edited to capture the full effect. The jellyfish were in a blue-lit tank, blue light keeps the algae away andContinue reading “I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Jelly!”
I visited the Virginia Beach Aquarium in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA. Above is one of their sharks in the giant saltwater tank; this is a Sand Tiger Shark, which isn’t the same as a Tiger Shark. For this shot, I used some new camera gear, a rubber/flexible Lens Hood that removes reflections from glass, likeContinue reading “Flying Shark!”
I watched a live-action non-Disney version of Cinderella many years ago, all I remember was the song Prince Charming sang. Do I love you because you’re beautiful or are you beautiful because I love you? Hence the title is about my love for Water Lillies and Monet, and yes I’ve been to his house inContinue reading “Do I like Monet because he painted water lilies, or do I like water lilies because Monet painted them?”
Forced Creativity part 66 I have a silicone bowl and lid to pop my popcorn, which lets me decide how much popcorn I get and cuts out the greasy oil. I always have a few un-popped popcorns, just like bag popcorn, and decided to save the seeds. I’ve been collecting them in a mason jarContinue reading “Popcorn Seeds”
The below photo is of a knarled bush; this was in a rest area off the interstate in Utah. The interstate (motorway, highway ) has rest areas at different intervals for those who don’t live in the US. Some are just public toilets, vending machines, and a grassy area for dogs. To me, this bushContinue reading “What’s Up With This Photo?!”
Part two Get a large UBS Wall Charger, and by large, I mean you can plug 4 or 5 USB cords into the charger. It never fails that the hotel has only one free electrical outlet, and you need to charge five items. Phone, camera, iPod, Kindle, headphones, etc. Double bag it. If I know,Continue reading “Partical Travel Tips”
Short blog and Baseball and Ballet photos.
The polar vortex is heading my way, so I’ve ordered some items for still life photos to keep me busy I took some poorly lit shots of red ballet shoes and a black tutu. I then processed the photo into artwork using Fotor Photo Editor. Enjoy! Let me know if you have a request, likeContinue reading “I Want To Put On My Boogie Shoes!”
