We are going to be traveling for the next few weeks — a trip to Hawaii to visit family, including our beautiful little granddaughters. I am traveling lighter than usual by leaving my MacBook Pro laptop home and depend entirely upon my iPad Air for working with my photos until I get home. Meanwhile, I was looking through some of the photographs I took last time we visited Hawaii. It really is a spectacular environment.
The surf off the Naples Pier was very rough this afternoon — and the wind was howling. The end of the pier was closed off, and I still got wet taking photos from the rail. The Naples shoreline is lined with with large houses — this is one of the smaller ones.
In 1638 the Kalmar Nycket sailed into the Delaware valley with a boatload of Finnish and Swedish settlers. A replica of the merchant ship is docked next to the Lewes – Cape May Ferry. I took some pictures of it with my iPhone while we waited for the ferry last Thursday. I used Adobe Photoshop Touch to give these photos a vintage look — which I thought was fitting for the replica of such an old ship.
We are staying at a KOA Campground in New Bern, NC. We stay here whenever we are in our motor home when we visit my mother. The campground is on the Neuse River, and every time we stay here I take a picture of these three dead trees jutting out of the river. iPhone photo, edited & uploaded on the iPad.
I was going through some photos I took down at Northport Harbor late last spring, and I came across this shot of jellyfish floating next to the dock. In the early morning light the jellyfish were luminescent as they skimmed along just under the surface of the water.
I had to go to the museum in Stony Brook to pick up my photo that was in the exhibition, and I decided to wander around a bit. I took this photo with my iPhone. The photo was taken with my iPhone, but I used a really amazing new app, Acquire, to get it to my Mac. The uses the new Remote Connections feature of Photoshop CS5 to connect to a computer over WiFi, and the image is sent directly to Photoshop. Another app I…Continue Reading “Stony Brook Harbor…”
Yesterday I delivered this photograph, on canvas, to the Carriage Museum in Stony Brook. I was very please to have had it selected for inclusion in the museum’s upcoming photography exhibit “Eye on Long Island.” The exhibit opens this Saturday, with an artist’s reception from 2-4 pm, and will be on display through September 4. My guess is that the show will be a good one, and if you have the opportunity, stop by to see it. Unfortunately, it is a museum, and there is…Continue Reading “Northport Harbor Panorama…”
The route south on the Intercoastal waterway includes the Dismal Swamp Canal, which is sandwiched between two locks — one in Virginia at the northern end and in North Carolina at the southern end. These boats were tied up at the dock, waiting their turn through the southern lock. Busy season!
