After the BPC field trip a couple of weeks ago this plant in my backyard caught my eye. It's there all the time but for some reason on this day the contrast in colors, texture, and lighting caught my eye.
This shot was also from this weekends Baytown Photo Club field trip. It's a close-up of an old firetruck the BFD keeps on hand for ceremonial events. The shot had a soft feel to it so I pushed it in that direction with Topaz Adjusts' "Simplify" preset filter.
This weekend I went on a field trip with the Baytown Photography Club to the Baytown Fire Departments Fire Station #2 on Market Street. I wasn't completely satisfied with the shots I got but did get a few to share. This shot of bunker gear hanging at the ready was my favorite.
This was my second entry in the "Teamwork" assignment for the "Bay Area Photo Club's" "Honor's Program" last Tuesday night. It's also from the "Extreme Makeover Home Edition" program filming in Kemah, TX through today.
This shot is of some of the wall panels being off loaded at the Kemah job site of Extreme Makeover Home Edition on Saturday evening. The volunteers here hook on to the panels, with one of two large cranes on the job, and either fly them directly into place or stage them for later installation.
I caught this Kingfisher hoovering in preparation for a dive at a meal out at the Baytown Nature Center a few weekends ago. It's hard to get close to a Kingfisher so as a result this is a pretty serious crop out of a larger image. The image quality is a little "challenged" but you can see the posture of the bird pretty well.
Today's shot has become somewhat of a staple for local photographers, a sunset behind the Fred Hartman Bridge on Hwy 146 between Baytown and LaPorte. This makes 4 or 5 I have on my hard drive but I suspect I'll eventually end up with many more.
While at the Baytown Nature Center yesterday I spotted this familiar subject in a mood to pose so I took advantage of the situation. I do think this is probably my best shot of the Osprey so far but I also liked the background. It was kind of a washed out time of the morning hence the black & white conversion.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
