Rustic Photo Set

Rustic Photo Set
Putting together a few little collections.  The above is a 'rustic' collection shot at my grandmothers. Old Nails in the barn, two pics of an old lantern in the smokehouse, and a lock to the fruit cellar. Lo-fi filter on instagram.

Pink Fog

The other day it was really foggy all day. At sunset, the sky turned this amazing pink color. It was beautiful!  Reminded me of when Vegas would get overcast and the lights would reflect pink on the clouds, a mesmerizing site few but the locals notice because visitors never really look up while there. This was all over though. I grabbed the camera and took it outside, below are the pics.

From the driveway looking at the neighbors.  You can even see the pink reflecting on the water on the street.
The lake across the street (sad to say I had never actually walked back there til then, you have to walk thru the neighbors yard to get there, I figured the picture was worth a little trespassing)
And a few more, edited with a little more yellow to look as lovely as possible.  These are in my store now.

St Augustine Matanzas Bay

El Galeón
I went to St. Augustine a few days ago for a shoot and captured a beautiful sunrise at Matanzas Bay from the Bridge of Lions. St. Augustine is America's oldest city.  The large ship on the left is El Galeón, an authentic replica of a ship that traveled the Florida coasts 500 years ago. You can tour the ship now thru February.

Safe Here

I haven't posted here in a while.  I'm going to try to pick up posting from time to time.
A couple years ago I was in one of my old stomping grounds (Knoxville, Tennessee) taking photographs.  The downtown area is a place I frequented often in the early 90s. There was a great cafe (still there today), a dance club called the Underground (no longer there), a couple theaters, and a dozen or so fun shops to visit (search my blog for more Knoxville photography). It's a relatively safe area, though whenever I have taken my mother down there she feels unsafe.  The images below are wrought iron grates in front of the window to a costume shop.  I love the way the repeating patterns seemed to bend and take on other shapes wherever you look in the photo.  It reminded me that we all need a place where we feel safe, whether it's the quiet solitude of the suburbs, in nature, a little cafe in the middle of the city, or online.

Abstract 2

Out to dinner tonight for my birthday, decided to take a pic of my ice water.  The brownish red color is the table on the other side of the glass.  Put in the Fall 30 Day Photo Challenge for the category Abstract.
