This is Bridal Veil Falls just off highway 50 going towards Tahoe and Carson City, Nevada.  This was the first time I had seen the falls this active.  Breathtaking.

Fort Point in San Francisco.  A trip with our photography class.  It was a great experience and ended jp with many photos.  This is just one of the many views of the inside of the Fort.  The walls show age; paint is pealing; and voices and footsteps echo along the rooms.

This photo was also taken at Fort Point in San Francisco.  As you tour through the Fort, there are many holes and openings besides windows.  It felt like I was looking out into the ocean from inside a cave.  And yet, I was taking this photo from a hole in the wall to obtain the illusion of a cave.  It was to me, awesome.  It's as though I were standing right there in that cave.

This photograph is one I designed to be used as a jacket cover for a novel.  The photo of the roses are from my sisters backyard.  (A pseudonym for writing.  The novel is not yet completed.)

I used to not be a big fan of still life until now.  We had to do a project of still life with similar color scheme.  I used these objects, candy in the glass, and soft under cupboard lighting to get the effects I wanted.  All in all I was most happy with the effect I achieved.

This is another of one of my favorites.  One I used for a final photo for photography class.  Enlarged enough and one can see the conductor inside the train.  Taken between 2007-2010.

Wild Mustang in Carson City area, near Mound House in Nevada.  My sister and I on way home saw a group of horses and stopped for pictures.  Mom and big baby.

The instructions were to take a photograph and alternate into a weird  composition that was totally and definitely out of the box.  This was two houses next door to each other and across the street.  By manipulating objects and using various tools, this was the effect I obtained.  Weird?  Very.  If you look carefully, you will find several different images.

I have lots of fun playing around with my photoshop program.  It is amazing to me at least, the many ways a photo can be manipulated to something so totally different than what it is.  For instance if I were to tell you this is part of my bedroom, my cabinet and curtains, you would not think so.  Well I wouldn't either so I won't say so.
