Rear Entrance

“Be an opener of doors.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

I took this photo at a ridiculously high ISO of 6400 — totally unnecessary for the amount of available light — because I wanted to see how the Fujifilm X-T1 performed at high ISO from the standpoint of image noise. I was impressed with the image as it came out of the camera; while there was some noticeable noise in the darker areas of the image, it cleaned up easily in Lightroom.

Sea Wall

“Daydreaming is its own reward.”
― Marty Rubin

In downtown Kissimmee, behind an old drugstore, there is a wall made of wooden slats that has been painted half white, half blue. As I’ve passed it on numerous photographic walkabouts, I’ve often thought its color, textures and unevenness made it look like an abstract ocean view. It was time to photograph it, add in a few stylized cloud formations and set sail in a ship of daydreams.

Cleo

“And how do you know that you’re mad?”
“To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?”
“I suppose so,” said Alice.
“Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”
― Lewis Carroll,
