Disney Music Center

Took a quick trip up to the Disney Music Center in downtown LA yesterday morning with my photo buddy, John.  As you can see in the above photo it was a beautiful morning with clear blue skies.  Best yet, as it was a Sunday and early in the morning, there was hardly any traffic at all!!!  This is one of the many interesting and unusual buildings designed by Frank Gehry.  It is an abstract photographers dream building.  Now I don't consider myself an abstract type of photographer so this type of photography always creates a big challenge for me to find pleasing and interesting compositions.  Above and below are a few of my attempts from yesterday.

This last photo isn't a photo of the Disney Center, but of a nearby building that had an interesting reflection of yet another building.  The reddish colored wall in the foreground was a bonus.

Teton Reflections

Here's a small collection of reflection shots of the Tetons.  Note:  most of these were taken in the early morning in below 30 degree temperatures, and for someone from SoCal that's dedication.  Just sayin'!

A Couple from Mormon Row

Just got back from a trip to the Tetons.  The above pic is of course from the popular Mormon Row area.  The good news was the top of the Tetons were in view.  The bad news was that we didn't have ANY clouds to put some interest in the sky.  Oh well, it's still very beautiful up there.  The below pic is of another one of the Mormon Row barns.

Pretty Skies

We were fortunate to have some pretty skies up in the Palouse.  Here are some examples.

The Rolling Palouse

I had a chance to process a few more of my photos of the Palouse region of eastern Washington. These were done with a new software program I learned about from my friend John Barclay called Perfectly Clear.  It does an amazing job of eliminating the flat look that most raw files produce and really makes the photos look like you remembered the actual scene looked like when you took the photo.  Here's a few more.

Another Steptoe View

A very tranquil scene taken at sunrise from Steptoe Butte.  It seems like such a nice place to live.

Whitman County Growers

One of the more prominent subjects from Steptoe Butte was the Whitman County Growers building.  Being bright white against the green and tan fields it was hard to miss.  Here's one of many shots I took of this Palouse icon.
