moo

I captured this from the GoPro mounted on my helmet one morning on my way to work. The farm is part of Delaware Valley College.

This is so completely not on my way to work, in fact, taking this route pretty much doubles my commuting mileage, BUT it’s rally nice view and who doesn’t like to look at cows in the pasture?

My somewhat lame contribution to good fences #4.

breakfast in america

Sunday, I was inspired to kick up breakfast a notch, so I made French Toast in the usual manner (eggs, milk, and vanilla), but after dipping the bread, I covered the slices with crushed Frosted Flakes.  It was pretty good, but it was a little tricky coating them.

Note to self – choose a better contracting background for next foodie.

iron man

I decided to do a time lapse of my ride to work yesterday morning and after I attached the GoPro to the helmet, I started the recording and unintentionally captured several selfies.  This one is going to be my new G+ profile photo, don’t I look fabulous in red?  My new motorcycle jacket provided some cool lines for the neon processing.

cozy spot for two

There’s a cozy little spot for two people to sit and enjoy the view of the Conservatory at Longwood, which I photographed from above.  I selectively colorized just the red bits and threw in a little purple for good measure.

didn’t see this one coming

At Longwood Gardens, I took a few photos of Osteospermum or Cape Daisy. My wife and I like these because they are purple on the outer edges of the petal, transitioning to pure white in the center. I’ usually pretty good about visualizing the end product, but I never thought this image would come out like this,

I post-processed this in HDR Efex Pro, adding HDR and converting to monochrome. I’m not sure if you like this, but I think it’s stunning, I’ll definitely print this.
