Went on a little stroll with the camera today….

Here are days 297 and 298. I can see the finish line!
The River Expansion is a great place to take shots of water. Water can convey so many things: movement, stillness, power, serenity. I tried to capture a little bit of all these, and maybe something more.
Here’s a Project 365 pic that harkens back to my Miksang Pattern and Texture photos.
I went out to shoot some this morning and was fascinated by the neat look that the dew had on different objects, so I decided to shoot a bunch. Here’s the results:
I’ve been wanting to photograph water droplets and the like for a while but haven’t had much success. Today, I was perusing the internet and playing with photoshop and found out how to make a water splash from scratch. Here is my third attempt. Considering I just started this an hour or so ago, I think it looks pretty realistic. With practice, I think I can make it look better. The first photo is the splash that was created in photoshop (No outside photos). The second is the same picture with a strawberry (real photograph) added in so it looks like something is actually moving the water.
Maybe sometime I’ll post a ‘how to’ on this, but it would take me a while to type it out and get screen captures so, not today.
I went out to White Knuckle Ranch Motocross Track this morning to shoot the Re-Grand Opening under new management. I took a bunch of motocross shots and a few that weren’t. I decided to do the few that weren’t first.
This is Happy, my friend Chris’s dog. He’s managing the White Knuckle Ranch now. Err…Chris, not Happy.
Stay tuned for pictures of some motocross excitement, as soon as I get them processed.
Went on a quick exceursion to downtown San Antonio today with my wife and kids.? Our main destination (other than sushi at China Latina) was the grounds of that hallowed institution, the Alamo.? I snapped some pictures during our all too brief visit.
The old legend herself.? I cropped out the bottom part because of silly looking tourists wandering around.? I really wanted the sky, the shape of the Alamo, and to try to keep the flag that was waving on the left in the picture.
Here we have the Famous Alamo Bitching Bird. I snapped him next to a shade tree outside the Alamo.? Truth be told he was quite quiet.? I just happened to catch him with his beak open and now have given him this moniker for which he will be world famous and eternally grateful to me.
And we come to my favorite.? This is a bowl on a fountain in the middle of a three way intersection behind the alamo.? The stones actually color is what I call Texas Tan, which most stone around here is.? But I thought it needed to be cooled off a little bit since everything is so hot outside so I tweaked with the color hue to bring it down to this light turquoise.? I like the way it turned out.
