SeaSide Florida Pavilion …

Another shot on b&w film then scanned.  However, it was made only a few years back.  Shot with a Hasselblad and 50mm lens.  This is one of the walk-ways over the sand dunes to the Gulf.  Several have these little pavilions where you can sit and relax.  They show them all the time in their ads, usually with a couple drinking wine and watching the sun set.  You do not usually see a low angle like this and I thought it was an interesting view.  Thanks for looking …

This was made outside of Havana Florida on Tri-X film ten years or so ago.  I scanned the image and then flipped it in Photoshop, then brought the two images together.   What took me the longest was matching the tree branches.  Thanks for looking …

I took this photo six years or so ago in Clarksdale, MS.  Morgan Freeman has a bar in downtown Clarksdale named ” Ground Zero ” and this sign was in the front window along with the flag.  I wanted to do something to remember 9/11 and remembered this photo.  I have never been to Ground Zero in Manhattan, so  this is the closest thing I had to work with.  I re-worked the image and added the border …it is my little way of not forgetting the tragedy that struck us all that day.  Thanks for looking …

This is a photo I made back around 1975 or so for a photography class out at UWF.  This was off of HWY 90 between Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties on what I always heard it referred as the Escambia County Fill.  It was on the north side of the road and is obviously no longer there.  All I am trying to do is just show some of these images that I created when I started out … they leave a lot to be desired, but for whatever they are worth ( not much ) at least you can see how far I have come, hopefully.  Thanks for looking …  By the way, this is from a 35mm b&w negative that I scanned.  Burnt in the edges is about all I did.
