Foggy Morning

Sat May 21, 2016

I took this picture a couple of years ago on a really foggy morning on my way to work. I just had to stop and capture it (It might have made me slightly late to work). Sometimes you just have to stop and take a photo even when you didn't plan it. Often times those turn out to be the best ones.

Barren Tree at Sunset

Sat Apr 16, 2016

This is another older photo that I've come back around to in my editing. This is on the Mississippi University for Women campus in Columbus, which I feel is a little know gem in this state. This is an absolutely beautiful and historic campus full of lots of great architecture and landscaping. A great place to take photos that I take advantage of often, especially when I lived in Columbus.

Beautiful Church

Sun Apr 10, 2016

I love this church in downtown Columbus. This is St. Paul Episcopal Church in the downtown area. The building and the grounds are very beautiful and well mantained. In fact, I made use of the grounds for part of a senior portrait session the other day. I haven't seen the inside yet, but hope to soon, and also to photograph it.

This is a photo of a little park next to the Mary Wilson Home on the Mississippi University for Women campus, also known to locals simply as "The W". It's a very historic and absolutely beautiful campus filled with old buildings and great for photography.

Black & White Can Make Better

Thu Feb 25, 2016

This is a photo from downtown Columbus in front of the Episcopal church. I took this shot in 2014 while practicing my nighttime photography and I really didn't like it, but I keep almost every photo that I take, so when I came back to it and played around some more I finally decided to try it in black & white and now I really like it. There are so many interesting things going on in the photo, including the light and the textures that were brought out when the color was no longer a distraction.

Smoky Sky

Tue Feb 16, 2016

As I was driving home last week close to sunset I noticed that the sky was really hazy and creating some nice colors in the sky. I found out later that there were some controlled burns in the area that was filling the sky with smoke all over the Golden Triangle area. I had to stop and capture it so I pulled off the nearest backroad and took some photos. This is a little muddy road that leads into an open field. The sun is just off to the right of this photo. If you look closely you can see the top of the smoke in this photo.

This is a shot I took a while back of the old Woody's restaraunt on Columbus Lake near the lock & dam. I love how the reflection on the lake turned out.

Cloudy Sunset

Wed Feb 3, 2016

Sometimes when I'm on my way home from work, I see a beautiful sunset and I want so badly to photograph it, but sometimes there is no good place to capture it so I just wait for the next one. On this particular day I had to capture this one as the sun was casting all kinds of vibrant colors on the clouds, so I simply pulled off of Hwy 82 and took this photo just off of the overpass and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Flowing Dam

Sat Jan 23, 2016

This is a shot of the Columbus Lock & Dam. When I lived in Columbus it was a good place nearby to get some good photos, especially at sunset. I liked to take photos of the dam when it was open because I could play with slightly longer exposures to practice getting those types of photos. I actually took this particular photo with a vintage lens mounted to my Sony camera with an adapter mount, which turned a 50mm lens into about a 75mm lens to create a more cropped image. I really like how this image turned out as I usually shoot HDR with my 19mm wide angle lens, though I am shooting more with my 50mm for different looks in my photos. It's fun to play around and see what works and what doesn't.
