Playing in the Sandbox. Day2/366

Even though today was a holiday here in the USA, I went to work for most of the day, but headed home a bit earlier than I usually do. I found this “Hand Cultivator” in the kids sandbox. I just always called these and other hand garden tools “Trowels” but a quick check at Homedepot.com(this…

Ready to play football? Day 1/365

Caramel Apples-Daily #343-Post Process

On a recent trip to Disneyland I sat outside the window as the confectioners were making Mickey and Minnie Candy Apples. The process fascinated me enough to want to try it. So I started the process today, by coating the apples with a layer of caramel. I also grabbed a few photos along the way….

More Christmas Decor photo edits

The Christmas season provides unique items to photograph. The snowball lights that are in the foreground seem like a fun light source, so far I’m not satisfied with my results so far…. There was lot of light wash from other lights around, so i’m sure that’ didn’t help. When the white balance goes crazy I…

Christmas Lantern Post Processing

Yesterday was Monday and a busy one at that… Long day at work and my son’s Christmas program at school led to little time for photography. This image was a bit of a scramble for day #339 of 365 in my year long project. I found this Lantern that holds a candle if one wishes,…
