Angel's Gate Lighthouse

This evening I went thru some files of photo's that I had taken last summer(2008). I came across this one of Angel's Gate Lighthouse (built in 1913, it sits at the entrance of the Port of Los Angeles) and decided I'd play around with it. When I first edited the original last summer, it is way too blue! Again, inspired by the photos I've seen of San Pedro from the early 1900's, I just had to convert this picture!

Here is the photo after I did the editing last summer. TOO BLUE!!

Playing with Overlays

I took this photo a few days ago while walking around downtown San Pedro. I was inspired to convert the picture to black and white and to do this overlay to give it an aged effect when I saw old photos of San Pedro from its "hayday" as a bustling port.

Fiery Sunset

Taken on the evening of 6 May 2009. The warm colors are courtesy of the smoke and ash in the air from the wildfires burning in Santa Barbara, California.
