Taken right from my own backyard, this colorful succulent was taken in mid-August. Filename: IMG_3089-comic.jpg
This original photo was taken in September 2009 at my friend Rick's garden during an outdoor party. I've cropped the image to a 16:9 widescreen ratio as a complement to some of my other works. This image will look good in either portrait or landscape orientations. Filename: IMG_1144-r16-9-ac-s10-crop2-rotated
This original photo was taken during August 2009 in the Pearl District of downtown Portland, Oregon during the Street of Dreams condominium tours. Some variety of sempervivum I believe, this shot is nearly untouched and uses the entire 16:9 widescreen image as taken. I've gone the next step to add an artistic painterly filter to soften the edges just a tad. Consider hanging in either portrait or landscape orientation. Filename: IMG_0137-rotated
Dogwood (1:2 ratio) This original photo was taken during April 2008 at my mom's place in Milwaukie, Oregon just south of Portland. I've cropped the image to a 1:2 ratio and upscaled it before adding a fresco artistic filter. The effect turned out well and the resulting image will look good as a very large gallery wrapped canvas print. Filename: IMGP3500-crop-r1-2-resized-fresco
This original photo was taken during April 2008 at my mom's place in Milwaukie, Oregon just south of Portland. I've cropped the image to a 1:3 ratio and upscaled it before adding a fresco artistic filter. The effect turned out well and the resulting image will look good as a very large gallery wrapped canvas print. Filename: IMGP3500-crop-r1-3-edit-resized-150-fresco
This was taken in 2008 during a trip to Belknap Hot Springs along the McKenzie River in Oregon. This Hosta bloom was shot near the river on the way to the Secret Garden. Originally used for a ceramic art tile design, I've cropped the original image with a 1:2 ratio for a new view. Filename: IMG_0978-20x10-ac
This original image was captured in July 2006 near my Rose City Park neighborhood in Portland, Oregon.
This globe thistle reminds me of a strange plant you might see in some Dr. Seuss landscape. The full blooms only last a short while and are simply amazing!
Original image taken while visiting Palm Springs, California in March 2010. This flower was shot during a visit to the Living Desert Wildlife and Botanical Park in Palm Desert. This edition uses a stylized oil painting filter for a softer treatment with visible brush strokes and is cropped to a 1:2 ratio for a landscape orientation. Filename: IMG_2939-crop-oil
