Angels in America

These images were shot at Oak Grove Cemetery, Norfolk, Virginia, mid-day,  the worst time of day to shoot. However, that is when I could slip away.  I intend to return soon -late afternoon- to get some really great light and beautiful images.

This reminded me of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize winning play

Watching you...

Easter

There are many beautiful old churches, cathedrals, and temples in Norfolk. This is one of my favorites – The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Happy Easter.

Two columns -oil filter

These are just some random scenes from downtown. The boat was shot from across the river in Old Town Portsmouth. Sometimes, a not so perfect exposure can be rescued  by employing a special filter during post-processing. In the case of the oil filter, the print can be made to look like an oil painting (sort of). It’s fun playing with these filters.
