End of the Line

End_of_Line

For several years I’ve been driving past this bus parked in the trees along Highway 23 outside of Duluth and finally stopped to captured a few photos.  Timing was important as I wanted to get the photos in the morning when the sun was at the correct angle to light the bus just right.  That meant being out somewhat early; this image was captured at 7:21AM.

Image captured at a monument in Colombia in December of 2013.  I chose to add touches that gave the image an ethereal feel.

The curves of a children’s slide break up the hardness of the Chicago high rises in the background.

This week my thoughts are on water as I will be spending several days in the BWCAW in northern Minnesota.  Gooseberry Falls is along the north shore of Lake Superior and along the route we will take to get to our destination. Gooseberry Falls is a favorite of Minnesotans , visitors from around the country and the world.

A Midsummer’s Daydream

What started out as a photo of the reflection in the mirror, became something totally different.  Edges began to blur, light became liquid and reality was open to interpretation.

Camera: unknown, original settings: unknown, artistic effects done in Photoshop, further tweaking in Silver Efex Pro 2 and finished in Lightroom CC Classic.

Calm Crossing

Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

One of the gorillas at the Como Park zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I can’t help wondering what he is thinking as we all stand around and stare at him as he stares back at us.

Walk This Way

Under normal lighting, this boardwalk is pretty tame.  However, with a little post processing, it becomes a bit more sinister.
