Look Into My Eyes

Look Into My Eyes

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly.”
–Richard Bach

Self-Portrait 34

Self-Portrait 34

By my count, this is self-portrait 34 in this project.   When I need to shoot something interesting everyday and I can’t find a suitable subject, it makes sense to shoot myself.

Old Nikons

A Collection of Old Nikon Gear

“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.”
–Henri Cartier-Bresson

This is most of my collection of Nikon camera gear with the exception of my D700 and 50mm 1.8 lens, used to take this shot.  

Abstract Tones

Abstract Tones

I call this image Abstract Tones.  Can you guess what it is?  I’ll admit to using Topaz Glow and Topaz Impression in the creation of this image, but both of those plugins were used at the end of the process in the final touches.  The spiral/ concentric circles you see here is straight of the camera.

St Francis Seminary Woods

St Francis Seminary Woods

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
–John Muir

Shot on a quiet, albeit cold and very icy, walk through the St. Francis Seminary Woods in St. Francis, Wisconsin, just south of Milwaukee along the shore of Lake Michigan.

Stockings Hung by the Chimney with Care

Stockings Hung By the Chimney

’twasn’t quite the night before Christmas, but it was at night and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.  The only thing I wish was different – outside of it not being the night before Christmas and there was no St. Nick – is that we had a real wood-burning fireplace.  Oh well, it is still cozy and a great place to curl up with a nice hot drink – or one on the rocks  – and a good book.
