Is there Beauty in a JUNK YARD?


Beauty in a junk yard, whoever heard of such a thing?

Well I decided to get up early one hot morning and meet two of my fellow class mates at the local junk yard. Now you may ask, “Why on earth would you want to do that?” Well you see I had this vision in my mind of doing a photo shoot in the junk yard. I love photography and decided what better place than a junk yard to shoot a beautiful woman. Luckily, I had a volunteer willing to take on this task. Here are some of the pics that resulted from that hot, dirty, but very productive morning.

I named this photo shoot. “Beauty in a Junk Yard.”

Here is sunshine in the mist of junk! You tell me is she a beauty or what!

 

What can you do with a Shower Curtain and Colored Lights?


Well I am not sure what you can do with a shower curtain and lights but I do know how much fun I can have with them. I did a photo shoot yesterday using these two items and the results was even more than I had imagined.

This first image is named RUSTIC BLUE

 

This one was done using blue lights only. of course, it helps when you have a gorgeous model.

Image Number Two is named: RED MIST

 

On this picture I left the blue light and added a  orange light in back…love the shadow effect.

Image Number Three is titled: ON FIRE

 

A different pose and taken from a different angle gave me this beautiful effect.

A beautiful day and a gorgeous model. What more can you ask for?

ok your turn go out and take some pictures….can’t wait to see yours!!!

I love fashion trends, well honestly just about anything to do with fashion.

I decided to Google the word FASHION and see what meaning they had for the word:

The noun FASHION has 4 senses:

1. how something is done or how it happens

2. characteristic or habitual practice

3. the latest and most admired style in clothes and cosmetics and behavior

4. consumer goods (especially clothing) in the current mode

 

Fashion has its own meaning to each individual. As each of us  is defined by our own style, fashion is what makes each of us different from others.

As I was traveling through Italy I took many pictures of  store windows that I fell in love with. Make -up is very much a part of fashion and here is one such window:

 

Italy is one of the leading countries in fashion design.  Fashion has always been an important part of the Italy’s cultural life. Italians are well known for their attention to dressing-up well; “la bella figura“, or good impression, remains traditional in the Italian way of living.

Sunday Post-Road


 

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.  Matthew 7:14

 

Where is the road you travel leading to?

 

 

 

All the above picture were taken in Castillon Florentine, Italy.

 

The Road Less Traveled by: George Strait

 

And there’s a road, a winding road that never ends

Full of curves, lessons learned at every bend

Goin’s rough unlike the straight and narrow

 

It’s for those who go against the grain

Have no fear, dare to dream of a change

Live to march to the beat of a different drummer

And it all might come together

And it all might come unraveled

On the road less traveled

 

For the road less traveled ain’t for the faint of heart

For those who choose to play it safe and never stray too far

Me I wanna live my life and one day leave my mark

And it all might come together

And it all might come unraveled

On the road less traveled

 

I’ve chosen a pathway I may not endure

One thing’s for certain nothin’s for sure

And it all might come together

Or it all might come unraveled

On the road less traveled

 

For the road less traveled ain’t for the faint of heart

For those who choose to play it safe and never stray too far

Me I wanna live my life and someday leave my mark

And it all might come together

Or it all might come unraveled

On the road less traveled

 

And it all might come together

Or it all might come unraveled

On the road less traveled

There’s a road, a winding road that never end

 

Travel Theme-Flowers


My girlfriend Karen and I decided to have a girl’s morning of shooting photography of the Pensacola Light House. Before we went inside I saw this gorgeous lily and couldn’t resist taking a picture of it. it reminded me of my grandmother. When I grew up and went visit my grandmother her yard was full of every kind of flower you could think of.  She had tons o ftiger lily’s in yellows and oranges . I loved picking flowers in her yard.

This yellow lily happens to have a bug on it which just makes it even more interesting to me.. Wonder what that little bug is up to?

I thought this was the only picture of a flower I had but then I remembered when I was in Tuscany the villa we stayed at had some beautiful flowers.
