Buncombe County Court House

From my camping trip last October(2014), I would like to share another photo. This was taken in Asheville, North Carolina during Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk. What struck me most about this building is the fact that the shape resembles a judge’s chair. I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence or by design but the significance made me want to get a picture. A cooperative sky brought out some beautiful cloud formations, while the setting sun at my back provided warm light. The color version of this photo was good but it didn’t quite convey the impact I wanted. I decided to convert the image to black and white and that really brought out the textures.

Please stay tuned as there are more pictures to come!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Please consider leaving a comment as I always enjoy hearing from my visitors! 😀

Dreaming of Snow

For my first post of 2012 I decided to start with a winter scene. This is a shot from my archives. I took this in 2008 but never did anything with it. Located in Louisville, Kentucky is a place called Historic Locust Grove. On this day it was snowing like crazy and extremely cold. For a Florida boy who had never seen snow it was an amazing sight to see. The photographer in me said I had to brave the chilly temperature in order to get the pictures I wanted – so I did! This was my one and only time seeing snow and I can’t wait to see it again!

Enjoy the photo and as always comments are appreciated!
