Car and curry plant | Middle River Photographer

I have a wonderful aromatic curry plant that provides me enough curry leaves for my Indian cooking. And my little boy has a favorite little car. So when he puts them together , what do I focus on? Another photo panel to follow-up on this one will be posted soon . So stay tuned.


Story board inspired by MCP actions.

Can “fun” make you do things you otherwise wouldnt do?

I couldnt help but post this video on my blog. Eventhough its not related to photography, I wanted to share it with anyone who was willing to watch it.

Pretty Leesburg Corn Fields.

Isn’t Leesburg pretty? I took these yesterday around 6 pm. I’ve been eyeing these fields for over a month now and havn’t gotten out of my home to walk over and get these shots.  Yesterday the sun was hiding on and off and I knew I had to get these before I lost my chance for another year! The location is right off of Evergreen Mills Rd when you turn from King St/ Rt 15 (Virginia). I get to see these fields everyday when I leave the neighborhood. Of course I photoshoped it a little bit but only to make the sky and ground properly exposed. Okay, I’m guilty, I did a litle bit of saturation too. But it really looks close to what my eyes saw with an added pop of color in the sky. The day was just right for photoshooting.  Happy July 4th!

Below you can see what the first image looked like straight OOTC. Thats way off than what my eyes saw. So you know I had to use photoshop to pick up the colors and bring it to life.

Lunch Atop a Skyscraper-Lego recreations by Mike Stimpson

 I was reading the latest article on the Strobist Blog, and found a link to flickr photos by UK shooter Mike Stimpson’s “Classics in Legos” and I thought it was so cool. Its lego recreations of famous photographs published in history. This was my favorite ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper’.    


He has the setup he used to create the shot setup
