Blue Ridge Hay Barn

Moments before the sun was shining, but as I got out of the car to make this photo it started to spit a few drops. However, the dark clouds above and the contrast of the barn with the rolled hay bales made for a nice B&W image.

Beach Grass

Beach grass is a wonderful photo subject…and it helps build sand dunes, which help preserve the coastline. I stylized my original to give the image a softer look.

North Carolina Coastal Wetlands

Wetlands such as these are all along the North Carolina coast…beautiful and healthy in most cases. Home to a vast amount of plants, reptiles, birds and other animals.

An old photo

I made my original color photo look like it was taken in the early 1900s. Jeb Stuart’s Memorial Statue in Stuart, Virginia

Up the Wall

I stylized my original photo of these vines slowly crawling up a brick wall. Virginia creeper vine.

Decay of a Town

It’s sad to see this in a once vibrant town…like Martinsville, Virginia. But, I had to walk behind buildings on main street to find it. I suppose out of sight, out of mind.

Door Secure?

You can’t read the small decal on the door window…it apparently was placed on the door by the Martinsville Police Department at some time, and notes the door as being checked and secure. Not so today…but then there’s probably nothing behind the door of value anyway.

The Red Door

You never know what you will see when you go behind buildings on a city street.

I saw a 10 foot by 10 foot large green square freshly painted in the center of a larger white square, on the side of a brick building. At first, I saw nothing photographically interesting about that view, but after staring at it some more, I decided to compose a scene such that I got a bit of color and shape, which proved to make it a much more interesting.
