This photo of this man smoking was taken in Barcelona, Spain, in July, 2008. Shot using a Nikon D200 with a Nikon 18-200 mm lens (1/60 @ f7.1), processed using Aurora HDR (using five images spanning +/2 EV), and straightened in Lightroom.
This photo of this railroad bridge was taken in Sackville, NB in August, 2011. Shot using a Nikon D7000 with a Nikon 18-200 mm lens (1/125 @ f4.5) and processed using Aurora HDR (using a single RAW image) and Luminar 4.
I debated rotating the image 90° CCW and photoshopping out the thread but it didn’t look natural with the way the caterpillar was curled.
If you look closely, the caterpillar is only touching the wall at the rear of its abdomen, or more technically, its anal prolegs. Other than that, it’s relying on the single thread to keep it from falling down.
Going to Cuba is always like taking a step back in time. With that in mind, I wanted to create pictures that looked old, and what better way than by making them black and white?
Since I only brought along a tablet on this trip, I used Snapseed to process the pictures. If you don’t have Snapseed installed on your phone or tablet, you really should. In my opinion it’s the best mobile photo editor available, on both iOS and Android.
It’s never warm taking the motorcycle to a Friday the 13th event in Port Dover during the winter. With that in mind, I wanted to take a picture to make things look cold, which I think I managed to do here.
Got out for an extended motorcycle trip on Tuesday and came across this old garage. As I was taking pictures, the lady in the house next door angrily walked over asking what I wanted. It turned out she thought I was a town inspector writing her up for an unsafe building on her property, but I reassured her that I thought the building was fantastic. We ended up having quite a nice talk.
