Bells are useful UTILITIES on the sea, relaying information from the wheel house to the deck and below deck.
At the entrance of the St Augustine Marina is a concrete column with 2 huge bells, this view was taken while standing beneath the bells.
I’d gotten away from B&W because the Topaz filter crashes nearly each time I use it. Thanks to Tammy, Boomer and Steve for suggesting “Quests” be transformed into B&W I decided to continue the process. The program crashed over and over. I did find some work arounds and used previous suggestions to add detail and separation so, it will be interesting to carry on the conversation on your thoughts and suggestions!
This ceramic pot looked like an intriguing OBJECT d’art not for the design but because of the condition it is in and its solitary presence in an abandoned garden.
A couple comments suggested a narrower dof being applied so here it is, let me know your thoughts. Ironically this image was originally going to be used but I couldn’t find it in the folder I use for uploads, I thought it had been deleted.
Everyone enjoys PASTIMES, right? Would it be a stretch to point out that photography is one of my favorite PASTIMES? Some say that photography is not an art. What is art? Form, light, textures.

The comedy of Willie and Company is JOVIAL from start to finish. Willie is no dummy and his Mom, Peggy gives him free reign with his wit and playfulness all evening long.
Willie’s great granny Gardner stopped by and had the audience covering their ears when she sang. Willie tried to warn the crowd and tried to distract granny but she had her mind set and her hearing aide turned low, lol.
Willie’s Mom takes time at the end of the performance to talk with people in the audience.
If you like comedy and you like ventriloquism this is a fantastic show. Stop by their website www.willieandco.com
All the photo’s here are SOOC and were captured with Olympus SZ-10 – no flash.
Not bad for a compact digital camera wouldn’t you say?
Today’s post is a Free Theme of a storm brewing out at sea.
HDR effect was achieved using Topaz Adjust 4, Spicify, minor adjustments in work flow exposure, saturation and color; then to PSE adding a mask to the layer and brushed out some graininess created by spicify.
Do not adjust your eyeballs this photo is supposed to make you NUTS, this is a reflection garden consisting of pathways, varied fences and fence heights plus loads of mirrors that distort what the viewer is looking at.
