Digital Magic

Here's a little digital magic sample to share. A before and after shot. On the left is straight from the camera, and the right after I played a bit, this is the 5 minute version, if I had been making a print I would have been a bit more fussy over it. What do you think?

Here's 3 more for your viewing pleasure..... This place was amazing, no matter where you turned there was something in every space, an organized sort of chaos, and completely compelling, you just had to keep looking around.


Here's another...... When I took this shot I knew that the couch out front was trouble, I even considered dragging it away from the building to shoot, but there were a lot of people around and I didn't want to draw attention to myself so I left it. Well, now after seeing it, I kinda like it there, it gives it that down home "white trash" effect :) Haven't we all looked at a place with an old couch or two out front at one point or another? Anyway, many more to come, I had time to play with this before work this AM, better go dry my hair now! (Yep, I am hopelessly obsessed!)

Today we drove through some of Oregon's wine country with a friends car club. We went to a few vineyards, an antique shop and a local berry farm shop. It was a blast, we did about 100 miles then ended up back home with a bbq. Here's a few of the shots, I have many many more I will add as I process them.

The first stop was at Oak Knoll Vineyard, this little guy was just calling out to model for me.

These were stacked along side of a building and caught my eye.

Not your usual grape shot, these were "rasins on the vine"!

Cool towers, I have no idea what they use these for.

Inside the gift shop.

I cannot remember the name of the next winery, it was very small, intimate, and cozy, with lovely grounds and wonderful people. I will post when I figure it out. These were inside.

This was the view as we drove in.

One of the stops was an antique shop, it was so much fun, there were tons of things everywhere, a sort of organized chaos. This building was across the parking lot and I couldn't help but notice this corner room.

purple insulators, who woulda thunk it?

a case full of old jewlery and pins.

More to come tonight!
