Swift 7987The reflectivity of its blue and silver finish, and the graceful curves of this carefully restored 1946 Temco GC-1B Swift beckoned me to make a symmetrical semi-abstract image, celebrating its beauty.

T-28 Trojan at sunrise

A warm sunrise, great clouds, wet tarmac, and a beautiful warbird.  Who could ask for a nicer photo opportunity?  This beautifully restored North American T-28B Trojan is bathed in the golden light reflecting off the tarmac.

The T-28 was primarily used as a pilot training aircraft by the US Air Force and US Navy from the 1950s into the early 1980s.

Composite of time lapse nighttime photos of aerobatic planes with lights and pyrotechnics, and of ground based fireworks.A celebration of the action in a nighttime airshow.

This image is made from about a dozen time-lapse photos.  Some images are of planes doing aerobatics while carrying pyrotechnics and lights.  Other photos are of ground based fireworks.

In a time-lapse photo, the shutter is kept open for several seconds.  As objects move through the field of view, their image is traced, seen here as light streaks.  The images were combined in image editing software.  All were made from the same position with a tripod mounted camera.

Restored 1955 Dodge fire truck

A classic 1955 Dodge, with a Howe fire truck body, on display in historic Yorktown, Virginia.

This truck was originally placed in service by the York County Department of Fire and Life Safety. Through a community-wide effort called Project 55, this truck was lovingly restored and continues to proudly serve the department and the county's citizens.

I made this image by combining photographs varying in exposure by five f/stops, using a process call High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography.  This permitted me to retain detail throughout the lightest to darkest tones in the scene.  This range of tones far exceeds what can be captured in a single image, but our eyes and brain work together to allow us to see deep into shadows and appreciate the highlights.  The truck sported a rich, deep paint job.  I used Topaz Adjust to accentuate accentuate the red, giving it a three dimensional feel in this two dimensional photographic representation.

A few days after Christmas, 2010, a snow blanketed the Outer Banks, followed by brilliant sunshine.  While it did not last long, it was a magical morning in an area that seldom gets snow.  One of our artistic treasures, the abandoned C. W. Wright Store in Jarvisburg, NC was briefly transformed by its new gleaming white coat.
