My first attempt at trying to “paint” with light.



I learned the ‘cinema effect’ and applied it to this photo I took Saturday Downtown.  First attempt ever, don’t feel to bad about it, my mistakes are obvious, but I have high hopes for whatever I may try to achieve in the future.  Being a part of this blog and seeing all of your great work inspires me to be better.  THANK YOU!  I really appreciate it.


This was the original.


I was practicing my night skills when I captured this one.  this is the view of St, Louis from the McKinley Bridge.  If you look close you can see something in the water…I still wonder what it is…there has been talks of sharks in the rivers lately!

We had recently applied a chalkboard wall in my son’s room and he and his 3 step-sisters created this chaos of art on it.  It is multi-colored but I liked it black and white.



One of the first pictures I ever took with my Inspire.  It is now on my Google homepage.  I was never so amazed that a phone camera could take such great photos!

I took this one quite a while back on a day we spent in downtown St. Louis.  This new architecture was located directly beside old architecture…a theater and my son had walked up the ramp to look at the waterfall on the other side and I just loved how massive the structure was next to his tiny little frame.  Again another photo taken with my Inspire.
