Week 51 – #23. Orton Effect

The interior of the Sarasota Opera House is a beautiful building of great interest and history.  If you have never attended an opera or ballet there, I would encourage you to do so but beforehand read about its history and renovations here.   It’s a place where dreams are fulfilled and because of that, I have processed it with the dreamy “Orton Effect.”

Week # 38 – #17. Misplaced/Lost/Missing Piece

My friend, Patricia, and I spent an enjoyable evening at the Sarasota Fair recently and when I looked up at the flashing sign for the Rock & Roll ride, I saw only the front portion of a pink Cadillac.  Obviously, there was a section “Misplaced/Lost” as the “Missing Piece” a/k/a the rear end, was nowhere to be seen.17.

Week 36 – #37. Stop Action

37-stop-action-dsc_7025I have recently become interested in mastering bird photography and have found it to be quite challenging.  To “stop action” and prevent an unsatisfactory, blurry image, I used a fast shutter speed (1/1600 sec) to capture this photo of a pelican flying over the azure water of Sarasota Bay. I elected to isolate the pelican and add a little punch to the water by applying a painting filter in Photoshop.

Week 34 -#A4. Photographer’s Choice

Blue hour, my favorite time of day, provided me with this scene one evening as I was traveling to my office on Longboat Key. In addition to the lighting, the movement of traffic crossing the Ringling Bridge was a perfect “photographer’s choice” for a long exposure.

Week 33 – #41. The Night Sky

My friend, Susan, and I decided to do some Sarasota night photography a few weeks ago. Blue hour is one of my favorite times for photography and I was not disappointed with “the night sky” on this beautiful evening. I was thankful for the gentle breeze which created wispy movement in the clouds as they passed between the palm trees and moon.
