View from the Park Photo Contest

I had got two honorable mentions for my entries into the View from the Park Photo Contest that the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial was hosting.  I was so excited.  I have no idea how many entries there were but I am betting quite a few.  So I thought I would share those with you.  The last two are the ones that got an honorable mention.



I am always getting emails from various software companies about some of their new products.  Well the other day I received one from Nik Software for Snapseed.  It is app for the iphone and ipad.  Sorry android users maybe they will put it out on the android market soon.


Snapseed is a photo editing software for your phone and it is amazing.  I really love it and the price is great because it is only 4.99.  Which I think is pretty darn good for a new software from Nik.  I love Nik so that is why I am raving about it.  I love how I can improve or do crazy edits to my pictures with a slide of my fingers.  So if  you have not purchased a photo editing software for your iphone/ipad. I must say I recommend this one.  Or if you have a software that you are just unhappy with then give this one a try.  I have been quite happy with it.

Photography Exhibit at Capital Arts

I wanted to share with everyone my latest photographs that are on display for the Photography exhibit at Capital Arts in Jefferson City, MO.  I love to be able to mat and frame my photographs to give that complete finished look.  It is just amazing to be able to take my photograph and vision and see it hanging on a wall.

I decided to call this one “Vintage Ride”.  I loved the front grill and how the door was open.  It was sort of like it was inviting me in.

What drew me in for this photograph was how I captured the the moment of the horse and man charging into the battlefield.  This photograph was taken at the First Battle of Boonville.

I call this photograph “Morning Dew” because how damp it was at Jefferson Expansion Memorial that morning.  You can see the spiderweb on flower also when you look at the photograph.

“Always Poised” came out so amazing I love how the clouds are so detailed.

I rented a wide angle lens to be able to take in the whole Capitol.  I love great architecture and this is GREAT architecture.

This is another one of my favorite photographs I have taken lately.  The sky was so blue and the details of the arch were great.  This is a must see in person.

I love cars because there are soooo many little details you capture.

This photograph came out so great on canvas. This is a giclee canvas print.  I have had it hanging in my house for almost a month.  I am just so smitten with it.

So these are the 8 photographs that I have on exhibit.  Please go check them out if you have a chance.  They are at Capital Arts is at 1203 Missouri Blvd., Jefferson City, MO.

I also have a booth at the Art Bazaar in downtown Jefferson City, MO.
