The Simple Things - The Art Critic

This little guy was watching me from on high as I sketched the building across the street. I knew what he thought of my sketches when he started throwing nuts at me.

Texture Thursday... bridge


This is the Melbourne Causeway. It was a bright day. I added the yellow to give it a different look. Not your usual postcard.

Touch-Up Tuesday.... In the field

"in the field" 

I thought I'd highlight the center of the picture and see what that did for it. It it too subtle?

The Simple Things - Fence

"in or out" 

Black Mountain is a wonderful little town just outside Asheville, North Carolina. I spent part of a summer there.  Simple things to photograph...

Touch Up Tuesday: paint brushes

"paint brushes" 

I like what the HDR effect does to this photo of brushes and watercolor water... 
I feel the artist working more vividly.

Texture Thursday: Turkey Creek in Infrared

Turkey Creek (infrared)
Turkey Creek in Palm Bay Florida has a beautiful boardwalk overhanging the pond. Plenty of turtles lounge there on logs. This shot is of the trees. I thought it might be interesting to have a look at it in infrared. I love the textures of the bark on the trees.

A look at the past

I love old houses. This is a particularly interesting one down near the river. It's boarded up and looking forlorn, but you can imagine what went on there long ago.

The Simple Things: Fall


The colors of fall are rare in Florida, but I caught this little bit of autumn over at Turkey Creek Park. It reminded me of the days when I loved in Virginia...

Simple Things: Another Time

"another time"

I think the pictures say more than words what simple things mean to me. A house of memories from another time is a simple thing to me.

Sketching... up close and personal

the hand of an artist


I love photos of hands... especially hands writing or drawing. With this one, I wanted to spotlight it a bit. That's all I did to make it a bit more artistic.
