Clouds in mirror

It's not something you'd find hanging on a wall most likely but I like it more for the fact that it was unexpected. A neighbor moved out recently and for some reason this mirror was left leaning up against the fence that separates our backyards today. As I was walking from my car to the house I saw it and wondered if I could do anything with it. Thankfully there were some nice clouds with blue sky to have something identifiable in the mirror.

Black & White Stairs

Hey look...I'm on a roll. In the continued theme of black and white I present one more. The last two were landscapes so I thought I'd try something more textural.

Cachagua, originally uploaded by Rob Weiher.

I took this a while ago but thought of it after a failed attempt at photography today. I have not been taking photo walks lately but vowed that today rain or shine I would head out. was definitely a rain type of day but being originally from Washington State I know that rain won't hurt you, it'll just make you wet.

Drove to Santa Cruz, which I have never really explored, even though it's only 30 minutes or so up the road. Long story short...while I wasn't all the bothered by the rain and getting a little wet, well soaked, I couldn't really get any good photos. The wind off the ocean was whipping the rain in almost parallel so my lens kept getting wet. Oh well...I did get a good amount of walking in so it wasn't a complete lose.

Jessica...I did some Photoshop work to the pier telescopes. Not a lot but I think the tinting came from a combination of my white balance set to cloudy and a slight levels adjustment and a strong contrast curve adjustment.

Pier telescopes

Hey look...I'm posting a new photo. Went out for the first time in at least three months and took a long walk with my camera. Even though I ended up walking around the same areas I've walked numerous times before I tried looking for things I had not photographed previously. For instance these telescopes.
