1-23: Quite a dramatic view of the out house near River Bend ponds. I never posted the color version but I like the B&W better. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere but actually it's pretty close to the parking lot - I have to walk passed it to get back to my car. This was taken shortly after sundown a couple of weeks ago.
2-05: Another from Monday evening. I was actually hurrying to get to another location and kinda liked the look here so I snapped off a few shots. I think it sorta looks like fall colors on the trees

January 14.   This is a 100 year old summerhouse in the dunes just 100 m. from the beach. I shot it just before sunset in order to get the glow in the windows and the dark BG. The foreground was darkened in order to draw all attention to this well-preserved house  .
St. Basil's Cathedral Dome. (6.23.2012)  Our Internet was down all week which is why we haven't been around. It was also a busy week as we had company so, of course, we had to visit Red Square. This a just one of St. Basil's nine brightly colored domes. I couldn't get a good shot of the entire cathedral with bright hazy sunshine and huge crowds, but you're undoubtedly familiar with this iconic building completed in 1561 during the reign of Ivan The Terrible. Legend has it that Ivan ordered the architect of the building blinded so he could never create anything as beautiful as this. Just reward for a masterpiece that's lasted more than 450 years?  Hope everyone had a good week.

I arrived there in time to catch a little fog for a moodier image.  You can see the Herons nest in the trees. They are pretty far  away. There is a big fence in front of all this so we can't get that close.

April 27, 2009  Early Morning Fog...
April 20, 2009 -  "Sign Of The Times" - This might be one way to use the remaining tangible assets of a failed bank.
Vertigo, anyone?    Trying to break out of the norm and see things from a new perspective.  This is a relatively new pedestrian bridge that crosses the Eno River and leads into the city park where all of my festival shots have come from.  This was the first time I crossed this bridge so I wanted to capture a few photos to mark the occasion.  Not content with a straight-on approach, I wondered what it would look like if I hung upside down from the top.  It probably goes without saying, but it was much harder to compose a decent shot than I expected. ;-)    Edit: It seems many have missed my little winkie there at the end.  I did NOT actually hang from the top.  I just wondered what it would look like if I had.  The difficulty was in getting the comp I wanted to make the shot look convincing.  This was shot standing on my own two feet, then the image was flipped in post.  While trying to compose this I was wishing for an inverted view, like the old view cameras.

CRABAPPLES IN THE SNOWSTORM

With temperatures plummeting
and more snow on the way,
I added a little color
to brighten this cold, cold, winter day...

Hope you're staying warm...and feeding the birds AND squirrels... :-)
