2015, A Quick Look Back

A big thank you to all of my followers. Your interest continues to inspire me. I launched 18-200 mm View in January to teach myself to blog. The result is a lovely catalog of photos. I have enjoyed every minute critically reviewing old photos, playing with them in Photoshop, and rediscovering my love of viewing the world through a lens.

My most viewed photos – thank you Word Press analytics. Not surprising they were all part of the ‘Weekly Photo Challenge’.

And a few of my favorites.

Happy New year.

Light and Texture

post 103 texture and light

I love the way the light and shadows add highlight to the different textures in this shot. My effort to see interest in an otherwise ordinary view. This is the side of Bruton Parish Church, Williamsburg, Virginia – one of the oldest churches in America.

Spiral staircase in Melk Abby, Austria. Ornate to say the least.

The Angel with a Tail

Fresco

I am always fascinated with the art on old church ceilings. It is intricate and the colors are vibrant encouraging you to look closely. Sometimes that close look is surprising. Notice the angel in the center of this photo she has a tail.
