Fish-Eyed Refection

While walking Katie yesterday we passed by a newly installed barber poll.  This little barbershop opened for business on our street a little over a month ago.  He seems to be doing well so far.

While walking past I noticed the fish-eyed reflection at the bottom of the poll.  I pulled out my phone for a quick snap.

A little bit of editing in Snapseed + quick bit of erasing in Procreate = a little snap to share

If you look closely you can see me, my son, & Katie in the reflection.

Have a great week!

Random Photo & Thoughts

As I mentioned in my previous post, we are now living downtown.  Our dog, Katie, is an older lady of 13 years.  She stays indoors with us and we walk her about a block and a half a few times a day so she can fertilizer the vacant lot (turned city park) down the street.

As mentioned, she is older, so her pace is not exactly swift and like most mature beings she prefers to take her time and not be rushed as she sniffs out the ideal spot to make her contribution to soil enrichment.

The other day while patiently waiting for her to determine the epicenter for her next event I noticed the evidence of a former doorway in the building adjacent to the park.  I wondered about what had been there in the past, what use or contribution to society the building may have served in a past life.  I noticed the contrast of the old facade next to a wooden post that now served as a power distribution point for park events.  I decided to pull out my phone for a bit of #iPhoneography.

Have a great day…perhaps I will notice more on a future outing with Katie.

Autumn Sunset

I love Autumn, it’s my favorite season.  I like the cool brisk mornings, watching the leaves fall from the trees, seeing the frost laying on the grass and roof tops.  Autumn can also produce some really vibrant sunsets as well.  I shot this one from my backyard yesterday evening with my iPhone.  I just thought I would share it with you guys.

Travel Photography – Sandbridge Pier

I shot the photos below with my phone during our vacation last June.  The location was Sandbridge Beach, VA.  The forecast for the day was to start off cloudy and become sunny by afternoon.  The sun never arrived.  A dense fog developed over the water and presented a unique lighting and atmospheric condition.
