Seed Pod

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!

Wescott Hall at FSU, Tallahassee, FL

  Two different post processed versions of the same photo taken this past weekend at Wescott Hall, Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

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.

Vintage Sunflowers

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!

Doorway of Number 224, Savannah, GA

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.

Courtyard at the High Battery, Charleston, SC

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.

On the Patio, Cherokee Cottage, Jekyll Island, GA

Shot on the Patio of the Cherokee Cottage in the Historic District on Jekyll Island, GA. Many people are not aware of the beauty of Jekyll Island and the other Sea Islands of Coastal Georgia. Jekyll Island was a playground for some of the wealthiest families of the early 20th century and the Cottages built by these families were later preserved as an Historic District.  It is a piece of living history and definitely worth a stop on your way down I95.

Shot with Lumix LX-3. Processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Topaz Detail and Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
