Part Two. Always have backup sites to visit. The plan was to visit various waterfalls along the scenic highway, but no parking and 5-mile hikes ended that plan. This means the only waterfall photos I have are from the first stop, Latourell Falls. Photo Tip: Don’t focus on what is in front of you; lookContinue reading “Visiting Oregon”

Part One. I fly into Portland, Oregon, Internal Aiport, and I know where else I would fly into Portland. In next day I was driving along the Historic Columbia River Highway, which parallels Interstate 84, viewing Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. This area is jam-packed with waterfalls, mountains, valleys, trails, Art Nouveau buildings, andContinue reading “Visiting Oregon”
I like your Moxie!
Moxie State Park is in the State of Maine on the east coast of America, and it contains Moxie Falls, Maine’s tallest waterfall at 90 feet or 30 meters. It’s an easy walk with boardwalks to take in the view. The below photos were taken in October with the colorful autumn foliage.
It’s Peanut Butter Jelly TIME!!!
Collection of photos of different types of Jellyfish.
Arctic lupine or Lupinus arcticus, growing along the road in Canada. These beautiful flowers grow up north where the air is crisp and clear; they tend to be light lilac to dark purple. The first time I saw Arctic Lupine was in Iceland, where the plants were imported to help with erosion and feed theContinue reading “Purple Haze”
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”
Row, Row, Row, Your Boat
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”
Ch Ch Ch Ch Cheetah!
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 Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Jelly!
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!”
Do I like Monet because he painted water lilies, or do I like water lilies because Monet painted them?
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?”
