The Hallway

So, I went back to the local VA for the hallway I couldn’t photograph the last time due to a lack of batteries for my flash. So that one is here. Additionally, I don’t know, it just seems as I walked down the hall, I felt like someone was watching me. *shrug*

A small shelter

It’s not exactly what I was hoping for tonight, as I was hoping the street light right behind this gazebo would turn on and give a soft glow from the back, it didn’t happen soon enough. I was able to get a few nice shots in the dusk, with slowly dwindling light. After a little editing, I think I have an image that may become a nice desktop wallpaper for my computer. It’s a bit of an artistic attempt on my part. I like it and I hope you find it beautiful too.

Enjoy!

In the Weeds

Old, falling down buildings or abandoned buildings somehow are beautiful, in a weird sort of way. And in this economy, there are quite a few of these around. Of course, Sepia filters tend to make them look even older.

Enjoy.

Reflections

Near my job is a business park with a bell tower and walking paths around several man-made lakes.  Here is a quick shot of the tower reflected in said lake.

Urban Art

Driving around town, I’m sometimes amazed at the amount of murals painted on the side of buildings.  Some of them announce the business they serve. Others, the neighborhood they represent. Some, are just art for the sake of art on the side of a building.

Not all of it is “graffiti”, but some are done by graffiti artists. Such is the photo for tonight.  These artists work not only in the medium of spray paint, but also in skin art.  They are tattoo artists (actually, the tattoo shop that I go to).  It’s sometimes amazing what can be done with a paint blown violently (and sometimes unpredictably) from the nozzle of a can.

At the VA

One of the worst things about taking photos in Florida has to be the heat.  It’s somewhat uncomfortable to be out trying to take a decent picture when you’re so hot and sweating.  But, braving the elements….. ok, desperate for something again (I really need better planning!), I stopped at the local VA.  The classic, Spanish style buildings are quite the sight.  It also helps they are very close to the inter-coastal waterway, where several boats are moored.  So, what to post for the photo of the day: The boats/water or the buildings?  Well, I wasn’t as happy with some of the water shots tonight. I guess it has to do with the light as the sun was still fairly high in the sky.  So, as I drove around the complex, I saw an interesting corner of one of the buildings. Yes. A corner. So, pulling into an area reserved for police or deliveries, I took a few shots from the seat of my car.  Oh, there are other shots of the complex I had taken. Unfortunately, because I was not using my slave flash, several of the shots were much to dark to be used. Bad for me. Possibly good for you as I should be able to return and get those photos on another day. So today, here are the corner shots. Enjoy.

China City

Tonight is the first of what I hope will be several dusk/night time shots. Actually, 2 shots again.  Part of St. Petersburg is a very old neighborhood with very interesting buildings.  Luckily, my computer cooperated so I could bring these to you! Enjoy!
