I am going to show a few more from our trip out to Southern California at Christmas.  Above is a view of one of the streets in Beverly Hills.  This is a fairly average view and for all that you have heard about this area, it could be just any other neighborhood except every house that you see starts at over a million dollars.  And we did not see very many For Sale signs driving down the few streets that we drove down.  Next up are just a few more photos of palm trees … I know, if you have seen one palm tree photo, you have seen them all, but I am hoping to bring you a few more that you do not normally see without getting too abstract or weird.  Here we go …

IMG_0543  Circle of Palms_RTP_8 Feb 16 _ SFW

Same image, just presented two different ways.  The two palm trees were in the middle of the road outside of our hotel in Oceanside.  The photo was taken at sunset one afternoon and I was walking to a restaurant across the parking lot from the hotel.  I just took the image with my iPhone and then worked it up in Photoshop.  The bottom image was created in an app called Circular once I sent the corrected image back to my phone so I could post it on Instagram.  Talking of the app Circular, here is one more image taken on the flight back to Atlanta …

A little different view of the Delta wing outside of your window.  The next is just a building in downtown San Diego …

The only thing that I thought that was interesting is the sun’s reflection in the tower’s glass.  I have a lot more that I will most in the near future and I will put up some portraits, also.  Since I mentioned Instagram, here is a link to my Instagram account.  I have been posting a lot there, so that is the reason that I have not been posting much here or on the other blog where I post my father’s photography.  The main reason I like Instagram is that it is like a mini-photography portfolio.  People can go to my account on Instagram and see all of the types of photography that I do in one place.  I do not have a link to this blog, but I have a link to my father’s blog in the heading so if they are interested that can go check it out.  Sometime in the near future, I want to start offering these images as wall decor, but I have not promoted this site or the other site much in the past several years and plan on changing that soon.  I also am going to find a gallery to join somewhere to be able to have a space to hang some examples.  That is about it for now … please feel free to comment and ask any questions that you might have.  Also, go check on my Instagram link and let me know what you think.  I am going to leave you with the Hollywood sign … Thanks for looking … Frank
