Multnomah Falls in Winter

This picture was taken in The Columbia River Gorge. The original was a 2 1/4 transparency. I had to keep my Hasselbald under my coat taking it out only for a minute or two when I took the picture.

Flowers can be dramatic as well a beautiful. I used PhotoShop to try to bring out the texture, the color took care of itself.

Iris Close Up

Another up close and personal flower picture.

Iris Up Close

White Flower

As you may have noticed my favorite subjects are flowers. When you get up close and personal there is nothing more beautiful. The original was a digital photo and was enhanced in PhotoShop.

Squirl at Cook Park

While out walking today I ran across this squirl who was very friendly until he figured out I didn't have anything for him to eat. I was able to snap a few shots before he wised up.

Multnomah Falls Lodge

Some more digital magic. The original picture was taken at about noon on a overcast day. A file photo of a night sky with a moon was substituted for the white sky. Contrast, brightness and color saturation were adjusted to make the building look like it was night. Finally the light ws added to the windows.

Digital Archeology

I digitally archive and retouch old photographs. It is very satisfying to coax a nice image from an old tin type which makes it possible for people to see images of their ancestors.

Alien Flower

This doesn't look real or like it's from this world but it is both. I took this digital photo at the Oregon Garden. Background was removed using Photo Shop.

Grand Oasis Tavern

In 1977 a run down but historic block in downtown Portland was torn down and replaced by a new high rise. A few weeks before the buildings were vacated I went down with my camera and captured the block on Kodachrome for history. I can almost smell the odor of cigarettes and stale beer coming out of the open door.

Really Old

Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, where it's hard to find any structure over a hundred years old, I was always fascinated by buildings several hundred years old when I was living in Europe. This black and white photograph was taken in Southern Germany.

Tree Frog

Frog and Falls
One thing digital photography allows you to do is create scenes. The picture of the frog was taken on a leaf next to my house. The picture of the falls was taken in the Columbia River Gorge several years earlier.
