You can take the word “sharp” to mean a lot of things. In this case I’m applying to the crispness of a very cool automobile… My love of TR6s is enhanced by this photo. For starters I love the color! I love the clean surface of green with the saddle interior and the snap of those red-line tires. Like a drive on a crisp autumn morning this TR6 has it all!
I did some playing with the sharpening tool in Adobe Elements – to the point where I think you could put your fingers into the tread of the tires.
Word has it, that if you enter here for the evening’s entertainment, you’ll come out a whole different person!
TooJay’s Gourmet Deli is a wonderful Jewish Deli-Restaurant in Central Florida. Love the potato pancakes, love the corned beef sandwiches. Breakfast and brunch are crowded for a good reason – it’s wonderful!
These Chevys were clean and lean. Great looking cars and fun to watch and remember past times and think about who had this car when you were a kid, or a young adult – or “My Dad had one of these!”
I rendered these in “grunge” – i thought it was the best fit.
Over the past couple of weeks a took a couple hundred photos, but didn’t have much time to work with them, post-processing and so on. Next week proves to just as busy, I can’t seem to breath Monday thru Friday. Living for the weekends here! I’m in one of those situations where I can’t relax. I have a pile of books I want to read, but I can’t relax enough to read even five pages. I have three high-profile projects, and I have to keep my wits about me. I wish I could retire, but that’s just not in the cards right now.
OK, I admit it. My name is Paul, and I’m an HDR-aholic! There! I said it. I’ve been sloppy drunk on HDR lately – I can’t seem to stop myself. I know it may be a bit over-the-top. In some ways it really grabs you and is easy on the eyes. In other ways — well, it’s a bit much. I’ll be doing this for awhile if you want to leave and come back in a couple of weeks. If you think it looks OK, then hang around.
I was in Orlando yesterday at a meeting at the Citrus Club (la-de-da). Terrible meeting, but I took some photos from the top floor where the dining area is. I’ve always loved emeralds and sapphires – and that’s what I was trying for with these two buildings.
I took this next one a year ago in Altamonte Springs at Cranes Roost Park. Its the tower of … @* ? I dunno what the tower is supposed to be for or what it represents. Its just this faux, artsy-fartsy tower here in Central Florida.
Along the very south end of Daytona Beach (Daytona Beach Shores and Ponce Inlet) you can find some lovely homes sitting atop the dunes – barrier dunes protecting the shoreline and the turtle nests. Some think the houses intrude on the natural land and seascape – they may, but I guess we get used to what we see.
Our toys are kept close to the dunes so they don’t get caught in the surf and end out at sea, riderless. The lighthouse is right in back of me.
This is one of my shots from August 8, 2008 (08-08-08) – a grand summer day in Florida.
