Don’t jump Mickey!

Why did the owners of this metal recycle building decide to put an inflatable “Mickey” hanging out a window…a Christmas Mickey at that? Get people’s attention I guess. Worked for me and my Nikon P7100 camera.

Strange Face in a Window

I saw it from afar and then walked across the street in Mayodan, NC to get this shot inside of a store front window. I had to place my camera against the glass to minimize reflections, but it still came out nicely. I really liked the detail in the feathers and the ceramic face. Taken with a Nikon P7100.

Pumpkin Time!

I took these two photos at our local Ridgeway Market, using the Nikon Coolpix P7100.

An Empty Uptown Intersection

Special effect, in-camera “miniature” view, using my Panasonic Lumix LX5. Makes a scene look like a miniature model…at least that’s the objective. Not something I’d use much…but fun to see how it works from time to time.

Farm Wagon

This old horse-drawn farm wagon was sitting in the front yard of a country home, and was all decorated for fall. Made with my Nikon P7100.

Special effect, in-camera “grainy” black and white, using my Panasonic Lumix LX5.

Miniature Bike

It looks small in this photo because I used a “miniature effect” in camera to give this almost actual size bike flower planter outside a local bank entranceway in Martinsville, VA a special appearance. I really liked this image and plan to mess around more with the effect.

Take my Picture!

Canadian geese love to have their photos taken.

Dramatic Look

I never tire of making photos of old structures. In this case I used an in-camera setting to give it a very grainy look. It worked for this old log house.

Making things the old way

I’ve taken some photos here before…at “The Old Mill”…just north of Greensboro, NC. But I never went inside before to see what they make, at this still operating mill, with water wheel turning stone grinders to make what you see here.
