“Oh, To Fly Again…”

Another salvage jet engine waiting on the tarmac at Planes of Fame Air Museum, Chino, California for another chance to fly.  I am fascinated by the mechanical contrivances that man can devise from inert matter that then have the ability to move matter through time and space.

A Backyard Find

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 130mm ISO 400 3-bkts f/16, Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PSCS5

The Bird of Paradise plants and the Daylillies seem to have a symbiotic relationship along the back wall of the backyard.

Seen It All

Street Life

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 70mm ISO 1600 1/30 f/11 Lr4, SnapArt3; PsCS5

A mature couple taking in the scene of shoppers passing through, children frolicking in a water fountain and families enjoying a band concert at The Shoppes, Chino Hills, California.  I’m not sure if this would not have been better rendered as a straight black and white image, but I thought the added paint like texture and brush strokes with this oil paint treatment better suited the subjects and the feeling of having withstood the tests of time this couple gave me.  What do you think?
