San Antonio, Texas – The Alamo Walkway (HDR)

Alamo Walkway HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix

This photo is from about a month ago when we visited the Alamo.  I have always seen this walkway and wanted to photograph it.  If you are looking straight at the Alamo it is located directly to the right.  The building at the end of this walkway in the photo is the Alamo.   As it was mid day…I had to sit and wait for a bit until the people traffic subsided.  I snapped away and took 5 exposures hand held and post processed in Photomatix.   I’m sure this spot has been photographed many many times…the HDR version gives it a nice look!    When it cools down here in texas…I’d like to go back to San Antonio and get some more photos of the local missions.   This day it was about 105 degrees…and I wanted to take a few photos and find some air condition!    Hope you are keeping cool this summer!

La Jolla, CA – Infrared (IR)

La Jolla, CA - IR Palm Trees

NIKON D70S (Modified IR by LifePixel), Nikon 18-200 VR

Just returned from a week visit to SoCal.  Always one of my favorite places to live and visit!!  We had one late afternoon to stop by La Jolla.  Such a  cute little oceanside spot!  We walked down to the beach and enjoyed the gift shops along main strip.  There is this one section of by the cliffs that have these tall palm trees.  I love looking at the angles cretaed by the trees lined up along the sideof a few streets and thought it would be a nice simple IR shot.  Palm trees in IR always work well!  I’ll keep this one short…lots of photos to catch up on!  Have fun in the sun!
