Over the Willamette

Posted by kymm on September 1, 2012 in Uncategorized with No Comments


In Portland, Oregon there are many ways to cross the Willamette River.  One of the cities nicknames is Bridgetown.  There are something like 10 bridges that cross the river in the PDX area.  I think that the prettiest and most architecturally interesting bridge is The St John’s Bridge.  According to Wikipedia It is the only suspension bridge in the Willamette Valley and the furthest north on the Willamette River.  It was opened June 13, 1931.

Window to the Soul

I like the effect of this.  The toning reminds me of a photo taken in the 1920’s.  I can assure you… this is not what my eyes actually looks like.  This is what I wish my eyes looked like.  Click on the image to make it larger.

Part of what I did here I learned from Fay Sirkis at Photoshop World a few years ago.

Birdbath Decay

If you stand still long enough in Portland you will take on a green patina.  Moss is everywhere.  I love it.

Turning Over an Old Leaf

Posted by kymm on July 9, 2012 in Uncategorized with No Comments


A little fun with monochrome and HDR.  You can’t tell here, but the leaf is brown and dead.  Photographing a brown leaf in the dead of summer felt appropriate.  It was so hot I was feeling a bit crispy myself.  I think the HDR processing brought out the details of the leaf nicely.  Brown leaf on green moss

Sometimes I photograph the sidewalk with my cell phone.

How Green is my Parsley

parsley

 

I just got all the Nik Software plug-ins and I’ve been playing with them.  This was taken at the Beaverton Farmer’s Market in 2008.

Our word “parsley” is a corruption of two Latin words, petros and selinon, meaning “rock” and “celery” respectively. Dioscorides (a Greek Physician of the early Roman Empire) is said to have given the plant the name “petroselinum”. The scientific name is Petroselinum crispum.

Parsley has been known as an herb for a very long time. It originally grew wild near the Mediterranean. It was in use by the Greeks before recorded history. The Greeks dedicated the plant to Persephone (Greek goddess of spring as well, paradoxically, of the underworld). Greek Mythology held that parsley sprang from the blood of the forerunner of death, Archemorus. It was made into wreaths and hung on ancient tombs and was also used to crown the victors at the Isthmian Games (rather like the Olympic games, but held in off years in Greece). – from http://www.indepthinfo.com/parsley/history.shtml

      It is not pretty, but I had to make myself finish it. I recently got a subscription to the Creative Cloud. So I had to play with Animate. I get really caught up in “getting it right”… so much so that I don’t do it at all. This is a message to myself to just […]

      My latest endeavor has been teaching myself to use Illustrator.  As a friend put it, “The pen tool is the devil.”  I decided not to let that discourage me. I decided that I need to create something, anything, so that I would feel that I am getting somewhere with the program.  The colors are weird […]
