Wednesday Portrait

Today’s portrait is from a while ago… Sept. 2010.  It is of my beautiful wife – the one who lets me create photographs when she’s doing the house cleaning, making sure I’m eating and giving me joy in my life… thanks honey!  [that’s a really huge thank-you btw]  As requested, it is a smaller image than previous posts 🙂

At first glance, I didn’t think that this was going to be a difficult photo to process, given the subject… but in a room that is entirely red with a table that has a red table-cloth… all that reflective light bouncing around leaving red tints!  Let me know what you think or if you have suggestions on these types of situations.

The View from Our New Front Door

I believe the title to this post is pretty self-evident, but for those who need a little help…

Once our home is done (wait, what – it’s not done yet?!), this will be the view from the front door.  Granted, it won’t always look like this, but this time of year it will look like this.  I’ve always been strangely fascinated by the slight movement of the sunrise and sunset over the course of the year in relation to static objects on the ground.  So, this summer, I’ll post another at this angle/direction and relative time of the day and we’ll see where the sun is located against the silos.

Where are we going?

Like everyone else, we were waiting around for the board to tell us which track our train would depart.  These two seemed a little extra confused or concerned.  I added a little extra post-processing to this one… I like the way it turned out.  I used onOne PhotoTools, Lightroom and Photoshop to create the effect(s).

On another note, check out this old vending machine!  Can you believe you have to clip the items in and let them just hang there?!
