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!

Trouble at Swampwater

Posted by blueheronbobcat on January 31, 2012

This looks like the Wild West, but it’s really just a monthly shooting competition of the Lake County (Florida) Pistoleros. There is a wide assortment of authentic and replica firearms in play, and the contestants all dress in cowboy era attire. I was attending as a spectator (photographer) and was dressed in “normal” clothing. All during the competition people would come up to me and ask why I was dressed so funny. I enjoyed watching and photographing their event.

Dragon Boat Races

Posted by blueheronbobcat on April 30, 2010

These photos were taken at a Dragon Boat competition in Tavares, Fl. I applied different effects to each photo, mostly different watercolor effects, and added the border. The Dragon Boat races are held each year in Tavares, but this was my first time attending. I was using an 18-200mm Nikon zoom lens, and I found that 200mm was just barely long enough to get the photos I wanted. Maybe next year I will have a 400mm or better to work with.
