Lilies, Pike Place Market

,

While conducting out-of-town guests through one of the big Seattle tourist attractions, Pike Place Market, I saw these lilies in a florist’s can.  Evette did a very good watercolor painting that is also on this Website.

Flowers in Window, Harmony

Harmony is a tiny artists’ community on the Central Coast of California off of  US Highway 1 (population 18).  They still had a Post Office when I made this image in 2008 of its window.

Easter Lilies

,

Beautiful lilies at their peak in the Clyde Hill garden.  Canon 5D MKII  24-105mm Zoom Lens set to 67mm, 1/640 sec f16 ISO 1000  Manual Exposure with spot metering to preserve the brilliant highlights.  August 15, 2012

Yellow Roses

,

Another from the multi-year series of the Clyde Hill garden.  This image was made during a reception at this home and I was without my more professional gear.  Surprisingly, this was an image from a Sony Pocket Camera, the DSC-RX100, with a 28mm equivalent lens setting.  1/125 sec f5.6 ISO 125.  I have pulled gorgeous prints up to 20×30 inches from this image demonstrating its capability.

Autumn Leaves on Wet Pavement

,

One of two parking lot photographs, this was made in the Fall when the leaves were vivid in color and the pavement was darkened by the rain.  I am often kidded about carrying around low-resolution pocket cameras when I have real deals back in our studio.  This is one of a number of cases where I came away with an image that is more than adequate that I would otherwise not have obtained.  It reminds  me of the old saw among photographers when asked, “How did you make that image.”  The answer,”f8 and be there!”
