Sometimes the ugliest things can be pretty if you get to know them.

Lincoln City and Henry Rollins

Posted by kymm on March 2, 2012 in Uncategorized with No Comments

Recently I went with my friend to Lincoln City on the Oregon coast. She was hoping to find one of the glass floats that they hide.  Every year hand-crafted glass floats are placed along the 7-1/2 miles (12 km) of public beach in Lincoln City, from the Roads End area to the Cutler City area. We didn’t have any luck with that.  However I was able to take some nice photos.

Henry Rollins Quote

I’m a fan of Henry Rollins.  His writing and spoken word stuff is fun.  I thought this quote worked with the image.

Taken in 2010 at Depoe Bay, Oregon.  I’ve been playing around with Silver FX by Nik Software.  I think it made a beautiful conversion to black and white.

One Tree

In 2008 I went to visit a friend’s farm in Champoeg, OR.  The countryside was quite beautiful.  On the way back we came across this tree.  I couldn’t resist preserving it in my own special way.

Angry Bird

It seems that a lot of people are addicted to the “Angry Birds” game.   This guy is angry for real.  This is from the winter storm we had back in 2008.  Apparently seagulls don’t like the snow.

California Coast

Here is a panoramic shot from the same day.  I wish I could tell you exactly where this was.  On New Years Day 2010 I drove from Redwood City to Santa Cruz.  Click on image for full size.

The Left Coast

I’ve always loved HDR photography. The intense contrast and bright colors appeal to me.  Lately I have been uploading my photos to Flickr.  I came across two photos I took on the coast of California.  It was the same image with two different exposures.  Normally you want more exposures, but I decided to give it a go anyway.   Click on the image.

    • The Death of Creativity July 17, 2016
      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 […]

    • Today’s Post Brought to you by the Letter K January 18, 2016
      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 […]

      In December 2009 I house/ pet sat for my aunt and uncle in Dixon California.  I had never been to California. Besides house privileges I also had the use of their Prius.  I was able to travel about quite a bit.  San Francisco, Sacramento, Sausalito, Redwood City, Calaveras County. It was an amazing time that […]
    • To Illustrate a Point October 21, 2015
      I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found […]
