The Show at the Beach

Watching reflections is always enjoyable. This held true on the fourth of July as well.

I spent the night watching for the flicker of a lighter, then get ready to start the long exposure.

The glowing orb is the moon. It’s been bright these past nights.

I have dozens of these, but I feel like the novelty of it wears off quick.

But I may as well include one more for good measure.

And to follow the tradition, I took some normal fireworks photos as well.FinishedIMG_1932

This looks small, but for scale reference, look at the house and the people in the lower left corner. It was definitely not small.

This looks like a palm tree, which means it’s about time for me to make like a tree and leaf!

The best part of Valentines Day

The best part of Valentines Day is after Valentines Day I can finally buy Cadbury Eggs. Valentines Day candy is okay as well I guess, but really it’s just fun to look at because of the bright colors. That being said, let’s look at some brightly colored Valentines Day candy!

These were all shot with lens extenders on an 18-135mm. Below is the end of the lens without the extenders! Also, all these were shot on the back of my toilet. As always.FinishedIMG_5467

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving

If you have  a few clicks to spare, please look at a larger version of the holiday guy. I may have, and in fact did draw him for 18×24. When you zoom it in you’ll see I did all the stitching on his clothes and such.

I haven’t been illustrating enough lately so this is an attempt to start getting back in the swing of things.
