Here is a sneak peek at yesterday's session with the lovely Helena.
The weather turned out to be very hot and humid but Helena was great to work with. I am looking forward to our next session which will be a couples session for her and her husband.

While converting to black and white can be done in one step in Photoshop using any of several methods, the results are not always satisfactory.

I had almost given up participating in this weeks scavenger hunt. This weeks prompts were very challenging and I had not gotten out to hunt for them until today. I found all but one prompt. For that prompt I will be pulling from my archives. Here are my submissions:
Meet me on the corner:
Mother nature meets technology:
I shot this photo last week during OpSail 2012. The plain in the photo is the Hawkeye. The satellite on the Hawkeye records all possible dangers including storms and relays that information to naval ships.
One step at a time:
When I was thinking of this prompt the first thought that came to mind was a baby's first step. Having no baby's to photography I changed my train of thought. It occurred to me that going off to college is the first step to independence for many. So here is nearby Old Dominion University.
What's wrong with this picture:
This is a two for one.
While some may think the 'hats' are the wrong part of this photo they are not the reason I chose this for this prompt. When I took the shot we were obviously goofing around and I didn't set the angle up correctly, thus the two eyes framed in one lens of the glasses.
Every time I see old growth trees I am impressed by how long they have stood tall against the elements and man.

Always on the lookout for beautiful spots to take photos, I was very happy to find a Japanese garden not far from our home.
The garden is tucked away to the side of this fabulous pagoda restaurant.
Stone benches allow for one to sit and soak in the soothing environment.
There is a coy filled pond with refreshing fountain.
The water Lilly's were so pretty I couldn't pass up taking their portrait.

I hope you aren't tired of shots from this years OpSail/Harborfest. I promise though after these patriotic shots I will give it a rest and be back to posting photos from new adventures.

Spending all of last week so focused on OpSail and Harborfest I thought I would have to forgo taking part in Scavenger Hunt Sunday. I am happy to say though that while going through the photos taken I realized that I did find all but one of the prompts. For the one I didn't find I will be pulling from my archives. So without any further delay here are my submissions.
One day I would love to travel on a ship like this.
Black and White
I do wish I had been lower when taking this shot, as it would have been so much better with the sun directly behind Blackbeard's head. Although I was pleased with the sun spot around his hand.
I sure hope that digital books don't replace paper. This shot is from my archives.
