This isn't exactly a Christmas related picture but I did come across it in my files whilst looking for a picture to use in a Christmas present. That counts, doesn't it? Anyway, for those that care, I converted this picture of an old fire engine in the new Adobe Camera Raw which comes bundled with the CS3 Beta. I love this new B&W conversion tool which is something first introduced in Lightroom. The Sepia was added later in PS3 using the Photo Filters. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!!

So are you sick of Cambodia yet? Too bad because I have a lot more to come. I Hope you enjoy these non-temple shots I took around the town of Siem Reap. I especially like the gold and red contrasts in the Spirit House image. You just never know what you'll see when you look down an alley.

These are all from my first day of wandering around the temples. Lot's of B&W conversions using various methods. Some in Photoshop and some using the new tools in Lightroom. I am really enjoying the new Lightroom Beta, too bad they are probably going to start charging for it next year.

They're baaaack. That's right, I am putting up more shots from Cambodia. I only have about a thousand more to go. I should hopefully be putting a few more on here this afternoon.

This was on my first day. I was trying to get a shot of the long corridor when this guy just sort of popped in. I was irritated at first but now I kind of like it.

OK Mike,
I finally bought a car so I can get back to my neglected photo blog. Sorry to keep my fan waiting. Here is a little something to start things off. A nice view of the Wright Brother's memorial down in Kitty Hawk, NC last month.

I was organizing some of my pictures in Adobe Lightroom and I happened across this image. I had completely forgotten about it since taking it on my last day of temple exploring. I didn't have much opportunity to grab the shot before he got up and moved on so I was happy top get this one frame. It turned out better than I had remembered. At this rate I should have all of my pictures posted before I retire.

As a little aside, I picked up my buddy Scott Kelby's new book today, The Digital Photography Book. Scott says that it's not for professionals but it's a damn good book and everyone needs a little inspiration now and then. I give it two thumbs up, nice job Scott (even if you did steal my Ferrari scooter shot).

I saw this nice framed picture effect on someones NAPP gallery and thought I would give it a try to see how it looks. Not bad, if I do say so myself.

While I still have hundreds of pictures of Cambodia to go through I decided to take a break from those and post a couple of pictures from the county fair. I didn't get a lot of time to shoot but who has time for that when there are funnel cakes to be eaten!

Here's a couple more from my Cambodia shoot. Many more to come.

I have just returned from 8 fantastic days of shooting in Angkor, the temple complex in Cambodia. I managed to get one or two decent shots while I was there. It will take me some time to sort out the one or two good ones from the 2000 so-so ones but until then, here is a little taste of Asia for you.

The flea market at the car show is never lacking for curious items.

Another from my short Father's Day shoot at Sully.

Today was the annual trek to the Sully Father's Day car show. It was hot and it was sunny and not real condusive to great picture taking but I did manage to grab a few images between shade tree stops.

And this one's from the "Stolen from Scott" file :-)
Here's a few more from off the beaten path.

I spent the last week working in San Francisco. Here are a few shots from an afternoon photo shoot.

See Mike, sometimes you actually do get a plane window that you can see out of.

I spent last week attending the Photoshop World training conference in Miami. It was a great few days packed with enough great training to make my brain hurt every night. I took these images during lunch breaks around the convention center. There is a beautiful Holocaust memorial right around the corner from the center. It's worth a look if you near the South Beach area.
