Fort Pickens on Pensacola Beach Florida …

leave a comment »

Here are some photos that I made last week-end out at Fort Pickens on Pensacola Beach.  We took Lukas out to the beach and then decided to take him out to see the fort.  The first several are of him and then the rest are of the fort …

The second photo is not all that good, and he is hard to get him to stand still for too long, so I have to grab what I can.  I will show some more of him on my next post … an oyster bake that we had out at our house.  Now back to Fort Pickens … the first is a straight out of camera shot and the next one will be the same image that was run through a Lucis Photoshop filter …

Is that interesting or what?  All that I did was run the image through one of the filters in the Lucis program and then adjust the sliders to get the look that I wanted and then check the run button and then what you see comes out.  Here are a few more the exterior and interior views of the fort …

And finally, this sunset from on top of the fort …

It does not look as look like your normal “beach” sunset, to me anyway, if there is such a thing as a normal beach sunset.  If anyone has any comments or questions about any of these photos, please let me hear from you.  Thanks again for looking … Frank

Family Beach Photographs 2012 …

leave a comment »

Above is Pam and Jenna with Payton on the beach.  Payton was not in great spirits, but I was able to capture a few of her “better” moments.   She sure loves being with her momma and her “Ya-Ya”.  Below is one by herself and then one with Lukas.

And finally, one of Lukas by himself on the beach … the light was not the best here, but I just wanted to show how grown he has gotten.

I will post some others with the rest of the family when I get them worked up … Thanks for looking .

GrandKids at Christmas 2011 …

leave a comment »

This is the only photo I made of Jenna’s little girl, Payton, and it was made at Thanksgiving in Atlanta.  We did not she her at Christmas time since she was with Will’s parents in Huntsville for a few days.  They came down for New Years, but for some reason or another I only made a few photos of her and they were not the most flattering, so this will have to do for the time being … now on to Lukas.  The following was made on Christmas morning.

All of these were made with the iPhone and they are not too bad.  We took him down to Nashville and went to Opryland’s production of ” Merry Madagascar Ice”.  It was scenes from the movie made of ice.  They took a building, turned down the temperature to 3 degrees and created all of these characters / scenes from the movie ” Madagascar “.  First, a couple of views of the scenes …

Next, Lukas in his parka …

They only had one size, but he was not complaining!  At the very end of the exhibit, they had a slide of ice that you climbed up and slid down, but I was not able to get any photos.  Next is a photo of him inside the Opryland Hotel …

Is he cute or what?  Here is a couple more of him with a couple of the penguins from Madagascar …

Looks as if Lukas made him some new buddies at ” Ice ”  That is about it, I could put up thirty or so more, but I think that you get the idea.  Thanks for looking …

This is a photo that I made of my grandson Lukas this past summer … he was shy and did not want his photo made.  I did not think much of it when I was downloading it to my hard-drive, but after I worked on it for a while, it started to grow on me.  We are going to see him next week for Christmas and I hope I can get a better photograph for his four year old birthday portrait.  Thanks for looking …
