While visiting the Universal Orlando  parks last week, my family stayed at the Loew’s Portifino Bay Resort. The hotel wraps itself around roughly one-third of the artificial bay and creates a photo friendly environment.  The standard photo, which I did take, is to plant yourself on the opposite end of the bay from the hotel and capture […]

The reason for no posting last week, and a delayed start this week even though I’ve been back, was a family vacation to the Universal Orlando resort in Orlando, Florida.

Well this is a mild embarrassment. I was all set to post this earlier today hen I discovered I posted the same image, just with different edits, about 15 months ago.  What is more surprising to me is that not only do I not remember that, but the raw image itself caught me off-guard when […]

You can’ really see the barnacles very well, but they were what drew my attention to these floating dock pontoons. I could have edited the image to make them more visible, but really, who wants to look at barnacles.  This meant the photo is heavily about the contrast between ligh and dark, sun and shadow, […]

Day 3 of my Black and White week shows yet another abandoned farmhouse in the Palouse.  I’ve probably mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating as it’s unlikely most visitors will read every post, but these abandoned farm structures are not on abandoned farms.  The buildings just became old, or redundant, and it’s apparently more efficient […]

I’ve decided to do a black and white week, starting with this image taken from Bear Mountain a couple of years ago.  This is from a wide ledge about halfway up one of the most popular trails to the mountain top.
