Last night Mags and I hoofed it downtown to see a movie (the Coen brothers “True Grit”–great flick!). I brought my G11 just for some added fun. After the movie we stopped in at the local watering hole and had a pint then walked around town with me click click clicking before hoofing it back to the homestead.
This is the corner of Western and Kentucky on a sleepy Thursday night:
And this one is on the riverfront:

Sunlight actually flowed into the house this morning. Before it disappeared I grabbed a couple of shots of this little scene in our dining room. Then I ate one of the apples thus spoiling my chances of recreating the shot. 😉

“You looking at me?” RAIN RAIN RAIN! We’re experiencing a VERY wet December here in Northern California. So… Since there’s not much else to do during today’s deluge but hunker down indoors, I pulled up an previously posted summer image and tweaked it with Nik Silver Efex Pro. Maggie says the “big guy” looks better in color. I’m hedging my bets. (Just having a little fun to keep me from going stir crazy.)
As an aside, I pulled out the T2i and grabbed an in house, rainy day shot of our laundry room window–also tweaked in Nik. Warum nicht?

Continuing with my “enjoying a week off in B&W” theme, I pulled this shot from a folder of posts from earlier this year (posted elsewhere) and re-tweaked it with Nik Silver Efex Pro.

More holiday Nik Silver Efex Pro play. I took this shot during the brief stop in Portland, Oregon on the last leg of the 10,000 mile train trip. Obviously, the sun rays bursting out from behind the clouds caught my eye. The original camera image was decent considering the highly contrasting elements, but I prefer the effect of flipping it to black and white, letting the foreground elements drop out, and boosting the dynamic range of the sky.
