Plastic Wrap

I was shooting at night and happened across this blue heron bedding down for the night in the shallows of a boat ramp. The lighting was too low for a good shot - didn't want to use a flash and disturb him. So I did a little editing with "plastic wrap" in Photoshop Elements and this is the result.

It's Raining, Not Pouring

I snapped this with my iPhone while sitting in the car in a grocer's parking lot. I edited the shot with Chase Jarvis' Best Camera phone application. The ball of light is from the lamp illuminating the lot.

I was with my brother the other day and he suggested we stop at dad's grave.
First time I've been back since his funeral.

Took a picture of some mums on my daughter's front porch with my iPhone.
I used Chase Jarvis' The Best Camera Is The One That's With You app to edit the shot.
You can check it out here:
Fun stuff!

Harper's Farm

I found out this homestead is called "Harper's Farm"
when I read in the paper that the house had burned to the ground.
