What a Smile!


Taken yesterday. I was torn between this and the other one I posted yesterday. I also like this one alot.

Abandoned Shed Chain Detail 1

Again, two versions, both derived from an HDR processed through Photomatix and then CS3. A coloured version and a BW version, with just a hint of colour in it.

McLean House

McLean House, 10 rue Principale, Aylmer. c 1840. House of John McLean.

So here are the beginnings of some photos from the house and shed. First the front door, all boarded up. This is what has been attracting me. This is a 3 exposure HDR, post processed in PS. I've created a coloured version and also a black and white version with just a hint of colour.

Abandoned House Portraits 3 and sister..together. Sweeties.

Abandoned House Portraits 2

Continuing in the 'abandoned house studio'...Mattias. Same general treatment as the last photo.

Abandoned House Portraits 1

So we were poking around an abandoned house on rue Principale today. I actually went there to shoot the house. Been meaning to do this for over a year now. Anyway, I've got some house photos I'll work on later, but wouldn't you know...had the kids with me...and, well...had the 50mm 1.4 and some opportunities presented themselves.....

In this shot I was detailing this abandoned shed, when Eli 'posed', as she is want to do..and, there it was. I've vignetted the edges, lightened her face a wee bit and spotted. Not much.

Canada Day!

So we were out and about the Nation's Capital today...lovely day after sooo many with rain! Lots of fun stuff for kids - clowns etc. Though the F-15s flying over were a wee bit loud for shorty...kinda scared him. But..over by the Museum of Civ we saw some facepainting going on. That's always fun. I ran across these two very cute munchkins: one was a 'baby jaguar' and the other had her face painted with flowers to match her dress! Too cute.
