Go Canucks Goooooooooo

Dedicated Vancouver Canucks fan. Goooooo Canucks Goooooo!!!!!

This snail was about the size of my thumbnail when I took the shot. I like taking photos of snails because they seem to know when to pose their antenna and show off a bit. Maybe I am just thinking they are posing for me. Anyways, I turned it black and white and painted it's shell using Adobe's  Lightroom 3.

Out From The Dark Side Comes....Brighter!!

    This is my last 'dark' photo for a while. I have noticed that I tend to post 'dark' photos...either to show a spooky shot or just the post production seems to have a trend to them. Although I enjoy the darker look, I am going to be working on more brighter shots. We will see how it goes!

Brook In His Photography Glory

Here is Brook finding a spot to hunker down and take a photo again. He gets his exercise when he's out taking photos. At one point, he was laying on his stomach to take shots of a statue's shoes! I wondered how long it would have taken me to get back up again after doing that. He popped right back up on his feet again....impressive.  Here, he's doing his squats. I look forward to see the outcome of the shot.

Gas Is How Much?

Brook and I went out for a photo day today in Steveston Village in Richmond. This was taken at the corner of Moncton St. and 2nd Ave. It's a garage that appears to keep up the nostalgic look. I think this brings out that look well. I added a bit of HD to the shot. It was fun trying to keep all the new world out of the shot.

sniff sniff ahhh

So yes..this is a bit of an odd photograph, I agree. I had built a light box to photograph small objects using 2ft long dowling, some wood, some rubber tubing, zap straps, and cheap white dollar store table cloths. Sounds a bit McGyver'ish doesn't it. Anyways, it turned out quite good and is very portable. I needed a subject that wouldn't move (first thought was a cat) and presto! Here is Febreze in all it's glory!
