Upside Down in Mexico

One evening in Cancún we had finished dinner at Las Isla Shopping District and while I was waiting for my wife I took some pictures of reflections in the canal. Normally when taking reflections you take the reflection with the object being reflected included in the shot. That night I only took the reflection.

When I saw the image during editing I rejected it as stupid. Now a few years later I looked at it again and decide to rotate it 180 degrees and I like it! Looks like a painting

Peggy’s Cove Nova Scotia 1981

In 1981 we traveled to Nova Scotia. Those were the days of film photography and although I did some monochrome, mostly I shot 35mm color transparency film. I don’t have too many of the slides left. I either lost or had two trays of slides stolen some time in the 1980’s. I have shared some of the survivors; High Tide in Bay Of Fundy and Peggy’s Cove. This is one of the monochrome images from that trip.

Before Photoshop #4—Peggy’s Cove NS 1980

One of the last composites I ever made in the darkroom. This is actually a triple burn. I used part of an image I took in Peggy’s Cove. There were so many birds around yet I didn’t capture any in the frames I shot. The sea gull was from an image captured in Lake worth Florida and the other birds were from a picture taken in the Bay of Fundy on Rugby Neck NS.

The image was created in my darkroom in State College PA.

Before Photoshop #2—Made in Pittsburgh 1977

I had done a number of darkroom composite pieces in monochrome but this was the first one I did in color. Color photographic paper was expensive in the 1970’s but this was a fairly easy blend since the skies in both images were similar in tone. I was able to complete it with only wasting one piece of paper. The airplane was taken at the old Pittsburgh Airport, The buildings are on Worth Street In Palm Beach Florida.

Minute Man National Park

We had been to the Lexington and Concord before but never to Minute Man National Park until this week. It is a beautiful park and you can walk through the woods adjacent to the battlefield where the Minute Man jogged through the woods to reengage the British Troops. This tactic won the battle because the British were convinced there were many more soliders than there actually were.

Window with A View

Most of the time when you travel and stay in hotels near the highway you get your choice of view. You can view the front parking lot or rear parking lot. As a Marriott Gold Elite member I almost always get upgraded. This time it was with it.

This is the view from the Aloft in Lexington Massachusetts. We saw a variety of animals and birds during pour stay and still had the convenience of being close to the highway.
