A Black Theme…

Black Chrysler 300C SRT8… 81/365

Black Chrysler 300C SRT8... 72/365

Just think about the gas pedal on this car and you are well on your way to a ticket. I had the pleasure of being able to drive this vehicle to work one day for some brake service and I have to say compared to my Civic Hybrid….well there is no comparing the two…The Germans blessed this vehicle with their ability to paint a deep black car, so deep, it disappears into the night and the blacktop driveway with its mirror-like reflection…

Black-Eyed Susan… 82/365

Black-Eyed Susan... 73

Half of a flower bed in my back yard is crowded with these things…a little bug eaten, but still pleasant to look at…

Tomorrow I will be working on the NY images exclusively until I have created the post I promised earlier…until then…

Thanks for visiting…

Statue of Liberty… 61/365

The Statue of Liberty... 61/365

My first visit to the big apple and Liberty Island since Microsoft’s Flight Simulator does not count.  I have to admit though, the statue seems a lot larger on TV and in the movies than in real life…Still an awe inspiring sight to stand at her base and absorb the history of Ellis Island.

Manhattan…

Overlook… 61.5/365

Overlook...61.5/365

On the way to NYC, there was a scenic overlook we had to make a stop at.  This is a 3 exposure HDR of the view looking over the Hudson River.  I particularly liked the way the cloud dipped into the hills on the horizon.

Daisy… 62/365

Daisy... 62/365

The family we were staying with our east lived across the street from a forest preserve that had a little bit of everything…including poison ivy…no one was affected but there was some question for a couple of hours…

More to come, and I may even double back and add some more from the trip as I finish them even if they are not in chronological order with the image of the day ones…my game…my rules…so there, haha.

Untitled…for now… 58/365 and Thumbnail… 58.5/365

Untitled...for now... 58/365

It was a tie today for the image of the day. I am still not sure which one hits better over the other…I can say that Thumbnail was the earliest image of the day, clocking in at 4am.

Thumbnail... 58.5/365

I will be heading out to Ohio tomorrow and then on to New York to visit friends so I may not get as much of an opportunity to post, especially tomorrow night, but I will catch up as soon as Internet access allows. Until then…

Wheat Field… 55/365

Wheat Field... 55/365

With the kids at their grandparents house in Ohio, me and Sabrina packed the dog in the car and went for a ride at sunset…after getting ice cream of course. Following Deep Lake Rd. north, the pavement becomes more narrow and the trees open up to small portals that reveal the fields behind them. What you cant see in this image are the sparrow sized mosquitoes loitering around my car. One of the fun side effects to all the flooding around the area.

Honda Done!… 54/365

Honda Done!... 54/365

This cryptic little post it note was the best thing I had seen, heard or read in three weeks. A perfect send off to my week and a half off of work. For those out there who wonder why it costs so much or takes so long to fix your car sometimes, this Honda would have given you all you need to become a believer and question no more. It was like an onion with all of its layers, each one broken and each one hidden by the last. Every repair we performed on this car then showed another failed component down the line that could not have been found without the first part working correctly. Accident cars suck and this one was no exception…I will be posting some photos of the circuitry that made up some of this nightmarish onion tomorrow.

Light-Burst… 40/365

Light-Burst... 40/365

Ok, so I am not entirely done with the last digital project, but I have not given it up as of yet either.  I figure I have all the images I need but since they were all taken yesterday, I cannot post the changes on it for today anyhow.  Of course this is an image of the sunset on my way home.  I am really glad I take my rig with me everywhere…

This is a three exposure HDR image…PhotoshopCS3, Photomatix, Lightroom, Upload….the usual for me lately in my HDR work-flow.  Some others in the same series….

Light-Burst-2

I will be camping all day tomorrow in Wilmot Wisconsin, so I may not get a chance to post tomorrow night as I think the Wi-Fi signal is pretty weak at the campsite. I will have plenty to shoot though, so I will double up on the posts on Sunday when we get back. Until then, Happy Father’s day…

Thanks for Visiting…
