Still life of my faded Valentine’s Day flowers. When I looked at them through the lens, I saw more beauty and drama in the dying roses than in the fresh ones.
Shot with my Lumix LX-7, fitted with a pair of 10X + 1X macro filters. 5 shot focus stack, post processed in Photoshop CC with the Nik Collection.
The other day while walking I came across this thing that looked like a big nut laying on the ground. I took it home and after a few days, the hard shell fell off and there was this beautiful seed pod! I could not believe how perfectly the pods were layered and arranged inside the shell. Another example of nature’s elegant geometry!
Shot with Nikon D5100 and Nikkor 50mm f1.8 lens and post processed with Nik Color EFX Pro and Viveza.
Both photos are derived from the same original photo shot with a Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 18-55 kit lens.
The first image was processed with several Photoshop and Topaz plugins to create a crisp and colorful watercolor-like appearance. The second one was processed with Nik Software Color EFX Pro and Viveza along with French Kiss Textures to achieve the look of a waterstained oil color painting.
Visited the Charleston Farmer’s Market in Marion Square on my last trip and came across a large flower booth. I was so happy to discover a big barrel full of sunflowers hiding on the side of the booth!
Shot with Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 35-120mm lens. Post-processed with Nik Silver EFX Pro, Viveza 2 and Bonnie Ziemann Textures.
Came across the lovely doorway while doing a walking tour of old Savannah, GA, one of the most fascinating and photogenic cities in the South. It is a paradise of historic 18th and 19th century architecture, filled with lush squares, historic locations and ancient trees draped with Spanish moss.

The Florida Keys are famous for their breathtaking sunsets. On any given day, the beaches are filled with people watching for the “green flash” – the moment when the sun disappears completely below the horizon.
Shot with Lumix LX-5 and post processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Viveza, OnOne PhotoFrames Pro and French Kiss Textures by Leslie Nicole.
Located on Meeting Street in Charleston, the Circular Church houses one of the oldest continuous worship communities in the South. It has a long and colorful history, having withstood fire, hurricanes and other calamities over its long history.

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine was founded in September, 1565, making it the oldest parish in the US and Canada. It sits in the center of historic St. Augustine, America’s oldest city. It underwent major renovation on its 400th anniversary in 1965 but still retains the authentic flavor of the Spanish Franciscans who founded the parish.
Shot with Lumix LX-5, processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Viveza and French Kiss Textures, printed in black and white on archival 100% cotton rag paper then hand colored with pastels.
Shot on my trip last weekend to Charleston, SC at the foot of the city in the historic High Battery. I was walking along the waterfront promenade and caught a glimpse of this lovely courtyard with a real gas lantern in the archway, like those that burn outside most of the historic homes around this part of Charleston.
Shot with Nikon D5100 and 28-135 Nikkor lens. Processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Topaz Adjust and Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
