busy few days…

I’ve not been around the last day or so as I’ve been very busy…may not be around much until Sunday.    The first photo is of Cincinnati on my way home from Florida this year, taken from the passenger side window…the architecture of the old Cincinnati narrow buildings fascinates me but I don’t think I got a photo that is descent, so I’ll show this…

cinncinati.2.2013the next two are the Gardner Expressway in Toronto, of course from the vehicle…the first is sepia…the other black & white…cropped differently.

a grand old lady!

this grand old lady, the Chief Commanda, once took passengers on cruises of Lake Nipissing and the French River from 1947 to 1974.  The original ship was named after Raymond Commanda, the local chief who drowned in the French River in 1944, three years before the Chief Commanda 1 was launched.  This location is at the Government Dock, and is now a restaurant in the summers months. Once the Chief Commanda 11 is launched I will take a few photos to post…in order they are black & white, color and sepia all have adjustments to them…

one of each…

I must say, I”m liking the black & white more and more, maybe because I’m finding photos that work?   This ship is at Key West…near Fort Zachary Park…for the last few years there was an older Naval vessel docked there, one that was used as a museum… this year the Coast Guard claimed the spot.

There you have it, black & white, sepia, and the original…I’m actually liking the sepia that has been desaturated slightly.

to sepia or not to sepia?

here is a not so great photo(in color) of the sunset at Key West…I’ve done it in black & white then tried sepia, which I de-saturated…not sure if I did the desaturation correctly as it looks very much like grey scale, or is this the way it is supposed to look?
this is the grey scale…
sailboat.kw.b.and.w.2013this is sepia, without desaturation…I went too far on the first sepia I did…wasn’t sure what to do with it?  this one is rather interesting…a warmer tone in comparison….

looking west…

I wanted to play a bit with this photo as I thought it had great potential…as you may have noticed I’m a huge fan of contrasts…so that is what you will see today…below is the original photo…this was taken last Saturday before I went the the Radar Runs…

sepia of course…I’m becoming a fan of sepia, it adds interesting colour to the photo, giving an aged appearance to the photo…
