Red Hill Coffee Shop

Adjacent to Red Hill BBQ is the Red Hill Coffee Shop in Rancho Cucamonga, California.   When I captured this image I was attracted to the geometry of the bui;ding from this angle of view, the paint job, the signage and the character sitting on the bench outside the building.  A weird group of details to be attracted to, but the totality of the details and the overall scene trigger my mind to conjure up some interesting scenarios.

Red Hill BBQ, Rancho Cucamonga, California.  I love the wagon wheels, pot bellied stove and the oil barrel pit with the smoke coming off it.  There is real fragrance to real barbeque.

A Man, His Best Friend & Favorite Toy

Nikon D7000 18-125mm @ 35mm ISO 320 1/20 f/5.6 Lr4; PsCS6

I met this gentleman and his companion at the Santa Clarita Valley Corvette Club car show, October 16, 2010.  This was the first car show I had ever attended.  This image was originally rendered as an HDR, however, now that the thrill of discovering the HDR process has run its initial course with me, I can look at the HDR image and admit that the process, and the state of my skill level at the time that I originally processed it, were both sub-par. In actuality this image did not need HDR processing and it was diminished by poorly applied HDR processing.

I’ve spent part of the past week going back in my catalog and re-processing images, losing the bad HDR and improving the final renderings.  I’ll talk more about this in Wednesday’s post.

Bouganvilla #71; Climbing The Wall

Images From My Yard

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 82mm ISO 400 1/50 f/16 Lr3, TpzSim; PsCS5

This bouganvilla is climbing the south wall in our backyard, getting plenty of sun all day long, it was totally decimated a few years ago when the  block wall was built to replace the old wood fence and is making a good come-back.  The same treatment was given on the opposite side of the yard this past year when the wood was replaced by a new block wall.  I can’t wait until all the bouganvilla comes back and our backyard  perimeter will be covered by green and shades of red.
