This is an unusual Grand Canyon photo I snapped in 2005 with and old Kodak digital camera that bit the dust a short time thereafter. Storms were in the area that day, hence the clouds and rain in the distance. The rock color is not as spectacular as most and in fact come close to sepia. However the clouds and rain make the photo interesting IMHO.
Here’s an old photo of oldest daughter “Claudia" snapped in 1980 on Pentax MX camera with Kodachrome (what’s that) and scanned recently with a Wolverine Scanner. I sure the photo was snapped in Alice Springs Australia.
I like the out of focus background. Although I’m sure back then I did not try to shoot with an out of focus background. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
Sprained my ankle the other day so I’m pretty stationary right now. I looking at my ankle sprain as an opportunity and among other activities I’m playing around with Adobe Lightroom.
I applied two radial filters to this Ft. Lauderdale flower photo I snapped a couple of weeks ago. The 1st filter darkens outside the flower while the 2nd increases the flower’s clarity. The effect is a small sunshine ray on the flower.
As a side note, I’ve discovered Lightroom is heaven for keyboard shortcut fanatics. The number of keyboard shortcuts appear to be infinite
In Miami last week and stopped by the Cafe Versailles in Little Havana for lunch. Our meals were most excellent. On the way out I stopped by their World famous coffee bar and picked up a Cuban Cafe con Leche to go. I now have a new vice. It’s the best cafe con leche I’ve ever sipped. Does anyonw know of a spot in the Dallas area with good Cuban cafe con leche?
Australian Sunset - I snapped this photo around 1980 while camping outside of Alice Springs. Its an unusual sunset for that part of the World because clouds were very rare. Taken with a Pentax MX using Kodachrome slide film. Don’t remember the lens. I’m working on a project to convert all my old slides to digital and its taking awhile. But every now and then I stumble on a photo like this that makes the project worthwhile for me.
