Camellia Focus Stacking Photo

Experimenting with Photoshop CC photomerge/auto-blend features versus Helicon Focus Software to merge various images of the same picture but with different focus areas.  Helicon wins, but not by much.  This image would have been even clearer if I were more systematic in what I focus on and in what order.

Bugs in the Garden

Testing a new lens and I discovered some bugs having fun in the Helleborus.  The world is full of big and little creatures living life, and we are probably only aware of .0005% of it at any time.

Freehand Drawings of Various Well Worn Running Shoes

to be printed on fabric and sewn into daughter's in-process marathon race-running quilt, composed primarily of Ts won at a multitude of races.  In fact, there are too many race Ts for one quilt, so I'm having to be selective, but I also want to personalize it, hence the Asics,  Newtons and Nike's above.

Snow Maiden

#4 in my "People Plus Nature" double exposure photo series: 1965 Santa Barbara Lucy meets 1977 Frozen New York Niagara Falls.  There isn't much snow at sea level in California but there was so much snow in January of 1977 in New York, the Niagara Falls nearly froze.

Elsa On Glass

#3 in my series of People Plus Nature: Two versions of 1965 Elsa in a Photoshop CC double exposure attempt with E.A. Autrey's magnificent stained glass picture of the sun shining.  A bit of a stretch on the concept of "nature."  Which works better, top Option #1 or bottom Option #2?

B&W Lucy in Red and Gold

Working on a series of Fine Art Photography I'm calling "People plus Nature."  We humans live in a world of incredible beauty.  Sometimes, we just aren't aware of it.  When we do notice, we tend to take better care of the world we live in.

Playing with the multiple exposure feature of my Nikon D750 and 35mm lens.  Top to Bottom:
1.  Mirror image with a photo of my art wall (sorely neglected since I've turned my short attention span to taking photos).

3.  Another mirror image, this time with a shot of a fabulous ceramic mask by Bill Abright
4.  Final E.A. Autrey head with winter oranges.
