2013 Gallery Images

Here are a couple more images that I have in Gallery at Marina Square in Morro Bay, CA.  I have made only a small portion in Black & White or monotone.  Some subjects seem to translate better in this medium.

Follow Me
This was taken at the south end of the bay across from the Golf Course in Morro Bay.  The path seems to whisper "Follow Me".  Someone said they could almost see the bread crumbs on the path.   I work with Nik software to obtain the final image.  Hopefully the final image looks like what I was seeing and feeling at the time.  I use Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 for my black and white images.

Girasole Sunrise
I have been privileged and blessed to live in the southern end of San Luis Obispo, in what is known as Edna, CA.
I have been taking photos out here for years and consider it my special place.  There is so much out here I could and might do a display just on my street and close by area.  The sunflowers were volunteering in the field across the street from my home.  I tried my hand at bringing color back in to just the sunflowers.  It lends itself well for some images, but not all.  I think, for this one, a personal favorite does it well.

There is history out another blog in the future

Gallery Exhibit for August 2013

An update after being absent from here for awhile.
Just busy preparing for Featured Artist at Gallery at Marina Square in Morro Bay, Ca for the month of August.

I will share some of the images I am displaying.  I say some, because I have gotten out of the blog habit.  Like I said, busy with work and prepping.

A mixture of Black & White, macro and ocean, beach scenes.

Approaching Storm
I decided to put up  images that have caught my eye for different reasons.  The one above was taken in Morro Bay in November last year.  The rain was quickly coming our way and I took some shots before I shielded my camera under my jacket and headed back to the car.  I liked the moodiness that the Black & White lends.

Breeze Sweeping

Just North of the Rock, there are dunes.  I absolutely love where I live.  And those that know me, know that the ocean and beach draw me in like no other place.

I hope you will enjoy my sharing with you.
Please feel free to leave comments, I would love to hear from you and know what you think.
