Finally a new post.......

"Flower Power"

I needed to look at some flowers today,
so I decided that this one would be a 
good one to post on my blog. It's almost
time for tulips to be blooming. I hope 
spring arrives pretty soon. The 
calendar says it's here but I guess
Mother Nature is just not quite ready...

"Blue Ladies In Waiting"

Okay, so I had just got a cup of coffee at Starbucks in Grand Rapids and I went outside to check out the photo ops. Of course there is always something to photograph. At least I don't have any problems finding things to shoot. I saw these beautiful pansies in window boxes in front of Starbucks. There were different colors but I thought these were the prettiest. I took a bunch of pics as usual and got a lot of good ones. This was one of my faves. I did a cool texture edit on this one. They reminded me of beautiful ladies waiting for someone to admire them and take them out for the evening....

West Side Market

"West Side Market"

This is the West Side Market, Main Entrance, (South Face), on the corner of W.25th and Lorain, just west of downtown Cleveland. I digitally enhanced this image, which was taken around dusk, with some texture and painting effects.

The West Side Market has been In Operation since November 2, 1912, and is Clevelands oldest continuously operating municipally owned market, and is located in Ohio City. In 2008, the West Side Market was designated as one of 10 Great Public Places in America, by the American Planning Association and continues to offer an authentic and culturally diverse shopping experience. The West Side Market celebrated its Centennial in 2012.

Cleveland, Ohio

"Cleveland Skyline from Riverbed Road"

This is a shot of the Cleveland Skyline from the West Bank of The Flats.
I enhanced the photo with a texture edit and added a little bit of saturation
to the already beautiful blue sky. The late afternoon light was near perfect.
This photo was taken in May 31, 2014.

Flowers and Texture

"Her Majesty"

Sometimes a photo of a flower just evolves into a work of art.
This particular photo was a good capture of a sunflower from
a low angle, but it needed something. The sky was
washed out with almost no color so I added a nice
blue sky with some clouds and found just the right
texture to give it an artistic richer look.

Curious And Cautious Racoon

"Curious And Cautious"
This guy was enjoying his snack out of one of the big trash cans in the park while we were eating at a picnic bench close by. As soon as we got up to throw our empty bags away he got startled but I was able to capture a picture before ran into the woods. I tried coaxing him back out so I could take a few more pictures but he was very hesitant. I got this shot and one more before he ran off again.
