Photos and Commentary

  • This blog is mostly devoted to photography. I'm still learning, and each photograph I take teaches me more about how to do it better the next time.

    I like this quote by Jacques-Henri Lartigue: “I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.”

    Thanks for visiting!

A Walk Through Beverly Hills

Posted by blueheronbobcat on February 27, 2010

Have you ever been to Beverly Hills? I have. But these photos were not taken there. These photos were taken at Universal Studios, Florida. I actually took these with a Kodak point and shoot that no longer works. I was quite impressed with the quality of the images from that camera, but the camera stopped working earlier in its life than I would have expected.

A stroll in Beverly Hills....is this the real thing?

Antique Cars

Posted by blueheronbobcat on February 21, 2010

An antique boat festival is held each year in Tavares, Florida, but I usually find the antique cars there to be more fascinating. These are some of my favorite shots from the last show.

1930 Ford... with Child

Nice reflections

My wife bought two Amaryllis plants at Costco recently. All you had to do was add water to the pot. One of the plants was slow to take off, and she thought maybe it wasn’t going to grow, but it finally did. The result was this beautiful flower.

Photos of a plastic slinky I took for a photo competition. One of the photos won the competition and another was selected for display at a photography exhibit at Florida Hospital.

Orlando Temple

Posted by blueheronbobcat on February 19, 2010

This is the Orlando Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is a beautiful building in South Orlando, especially at sunset or at night when it is lit up. I got one sunset shot, the others were on a cloudy day.

Top Drawer

Posted by blueheronbobcat on February 19, 2010

Top Drawer is a second hand furniture store near downtown Orlando. At night, even though the store is closed, they have these neon lights that really make the building interesting to look at. The other night I decided to stop and take some photos. These are HDR composites so that I could get a good dynamic range on the photos. Some post processing softening was done to soften the harshness of the HDR images.
