Old School HDR

Heritage Hill Talke
From Lake Forest located in Orange County, CA you can find Heritage Hill Historical Park. A quaint location that will give you a glimpse back in time. I visited to see the old schoolhouse. Not sure of how old it is…but Im guessing early 1900’s 3rd grade class. I saw a picture online that this old classroom was all wood. The HDR artist in me wanted to catch a few brackets. I was lucky this day and walked in after a tour and was able to grab a few shots. I think you may have to be on a tour to have the doors open. Ms. Crabtree may have been the teacher? Have fun!

Porto, Portugal – Santa Clara Church (HDR)


From the lovely old city of Porto, Portugal…one of the coolest small churches I have ever seen. The ornate wood carved interior painted with a gold color. It looks stunning in HDR! The church is off the beaten path and tough to find. Its very small and it takes a bit of work to get inside. If you are ever in Porto…it is well worth the visit. Can you imagine carving all those details? Unreal!!
