the Cleaning Lady & Anomaly - (not for the squeamish)

I found a dozen buzzards working hard on this deer carcass at the fishing pier early morning. Is it too gross for public viewing? Second question: what on earth is the round thing behind her? It looks like a processing artifact but this is SOOC, and it is in all the shots I took of her. It looks lik...

The beauty of ugly, but I find it to be beauty with a touch of grunge. Love it Minnie !!! It appears that you are being watched from the second floor balcony/window.

Thanks Dave. It was an unusual place. In editing them, I can't think of names for them. They are just themselves.

Re: Panogator

THAT is just gorgeous! There isn't one thing I would change! The light, the reflections, the green, the presumably recently fed 'gator being sleepily lazy, so much so that s/he looks actually benign (they are beautiful animals and they outlasted the dinosaurs so there's that)... (OK) (Y) Thanks Chu...

Re: Is It Spring Yet? Pleeeaaaassse?

Desperate for something, anything to shoot, and we had a day that hit the miraculous high temperature of 47 Fahrenheit, I went for a drive and visited some parks looking for anything. But there was really nothing. :( So I shot what I could, then wondered if conversion to B&W might be mo' betta. I h...

Wow! That's mighty pretty, with all that rich color and that detail in the clouds and cacti. Very nice.

Re: Taylor Canyon - Taylor Point

This is beautiful - the rolling mountains, the great light, the play of light and shadow, the amazing clouds. I took the liberty of doing a tiny bit of tinkering, to raise the shadows beneath that nice tree. Now, if you can just catch a hiker walking around that curve in the trail, it would be a gre...

Re: Kite

all thoughts welcomed...wasn't sure where to put this I see why you left this one in color! It's full of wonderfully busy detail, kitchen sink the way I like it. But of course it would also support individual "short stories" made up of small elements/scenes from the larger tapestry. Very interestin...

Re: The Lazy Photographer

I'm a lazy photographer, it's true, I didn't say bad, I can get a good shot every now and then so what I'm talking about is being lazy. I have a tripod but don't bring it with me, I usually shoot in Program Mode assuming the camera knows what it's doing, and I don't check my shots so there are time...
