This Old House

f/4, 1/640 sec, ISO 160

This old house is one of the originals in my neighborhood. The carriage house, in the rear, has been converted into apartments, but the Victorian remains unchanged. In fact, it’s in need of a major renovation.

The home is still owned and occupied by the same family, but they have let the once majestic structure fall into disrepair. I asked if they might sell and was told that the family wants to keep possession of the property which is valued at three million dollars.

It is sad that this old house has been allowed to deteriorate into a neighborhood eyesore.

Sunset Silhouette (2)

f/2.8, ISO-100, 1/160 sec.

The original Sunset Silhouette was the inspiration for these two shots. Below, notice the guy, far right, wearing the Panama hat. He was casting a net over the pier, but I think the fish were just too smart for that!

Sunset Serenade

f/4, ISO-100, 1/500 sec.

A clear, or cloudy day made all the difference in these shots. The thin cloud streaks across the sun makes this contrast photo my all-time favorite sun pic.

Palm Sun Day

f/8, ISO-100, 1/400 sec.

I’m always trying to capture that unique shot of the sunset. This method of framing the picture is one of my favorite techniques. The diffusion of light is a nice effect without having to use a filter.
