Frankie & Johnnie's

One thing about being a photographer is that you are always looking for new things to take pictures of. You take different ways of getting home, turn down side streets. I am sure I have never driven past this spot, though I have heard of it. I think I need to go back at night.....

Nothing fancy here, I just loved the textures of the peeling wood on an abandoned building's door.

Clouds. Did I mention I LOVE clouds?

Nice Morning....

I have been playing more with using HDR in situations where I normally would not, a few weeks ago I had a good opportunity with some mixed lighting in the morning. I originally tried this shot as HDR, but it just didn't look quite right. So I just went with a single exposure and got what I was looking for.

Both of these are HDR, I like them but I'm not super excited with the haloing I see around the temple. But with the building in shade and the sun lit, there was no other good way to get the lighting right. Believe me I tried!
