World Travler

PS-VJJS-151122-001A Norwegian motor trawler anchored and calling Hollywood, Florida it’s temporary home although it has been here almost a year now. Each time I pass it I want to shoot it a different angle and light but chose this one as ominous clouds and a rainy day seem fitting for a world traveler. Processed in Lightroom and On1 B&W for black and white conversion.

What is interesting is that the tower was demolished after seventy years and a two weeks after I made this image. Talk about serendipity.

Hillsboro Lighthouse

VJJS-120929-HDR-001-01

This was taken about 10 AM with the sun not quite overhead. By making a high dynamic range image I was able to capture detail. If this was just one exposure it would have been totally washed out and flat. Notice the people at the top? Makes you wonder what the are talking about.
