Shop Window #295

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 10mm ISO 1600 3-Bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

A little bit of serenity in the commercial district on Glendora Avenue in Glendora, California.  Shop windows are a great subject for practicing your image capture skills.  Many windows are dull, or “junked up” or just sort of “thrown together”, but then you come upon the occasional interesting or artistically arranged window, and if the lighting is not working against you (reflections on window glass, opposing color temperatures between incandescent lighting and full daylight, clean glass) and you might capture something interesting.


Keeping The Lights On

Shop Windows

What could be better than sitting at home in front of the television than going out to experience life in the real world.  Anticipating that moment when the man in the candy store window loses his balance and comes crashing out on to the sidewalk.  It beats watching paint dry.


Four Dandified Dummies & One Working Stiff

On South Lake Avenue, Pasadena, California.  A real man doing an honest day’s work contrasted by a merchandiser’s ideal of a fashionably and expensively clad gentleman.


Hanging Out With Dad

The scene is the South Lake Avenue shopping district in Pasadena, California.  Life couldn’t be better for a young girl than a leisurely afternoon window shopping ride with the family dog and dad towing us in a red wagon.

Angry Bird

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 10mm ISO 2500 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

When I first started post processing this I was thinking “Italian Flag”, and while it has all the right colors, they were not proportioned right.  Then as I looked at the image, more and more, it hit me, “angry bird!”.

Urban Study #275: “We Buy Gold”

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 40mm ISO 640 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

Sigal Diamonds, Third and “D” Street, LaVerne, California.  “We buy gold.”


Side Entrance

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 18mm ISO 640 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

This is another angle on Le Cordon Bleu at the corner of Green and Oakland in Pasadena, California.  This is a side entrance on the Oakland side of the building.  I like the framing elements around the doorway and the windows and the reflection of the church in the window.  While we were capturing these images culinary students were scuttling between this building and an adjacent campus half a block away, up on Colorado Boulevard.

Portal To Antiques

Nikon D7000 10.5mm ISO 800 1/500 f/16 Lr3, TpzSim; PsCS5

I don’t know about the antiques inside, but this store entry says big time prices to me.  Judy is peering in the window in this image, the store was closed when we visited, which might have been very fortunate for the family bank account.
