Great MoonRise earlier this evening as I was heading into the Studio, so I grabbed my camera and ran back over to the Square, and…. that was that!

Takin’ The Dive!

Just yesterday was the GREAT Wedding & Reception of Molly & Zach at the beautiful  Icelandic Winds Farm up in the hills of Addison, NY . Molly’s folks live there on this beautiful property, and earlier in the week, we did something really cool that I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while now! They have the really great Pond you see….and I’ve always wanted to do the Bride & Groom Plunge thing….well last Wednesday I fulfilled that desire! With the help of  a Wedding Dress from “Sal’s Boutique”, and two of my fellow Photographer Buddies, Mike Kohberger & Corey Bernas lending a few extra hands on reverse angle camera shots ….well, check these shots out! Pretty Damn Neat!!!!

RUNNNNNN!!!!

Well, I’ve finally broken down & done it! I don’t do this cheesy stuff that seems to be the latest rage these days with Wedding images, But my Groom Steve pretty much begged me to do this one for them! And I gotta say, they all did a really great job on the “Godzilla Run”. So I said…..like John Candy In STRIPES….. “OK, I’ll Do It!!!”

So we’re up at Sullivan’s Monument / Newtown Battlefield State Park in Elmira, NY……and after most of our “REAL” shots were done, the gang let loose and did the Godzilla Run right past & below the monument. I thought that would look cool and give me the look I’d be going for here. So I picked out the running shot I liked the best….then surfed around to see what was out there for some killer Godzilla shots. Immediately I loved this one because it was pretty large, and also I loved the Purple color (who would have guessed, right?) and all the fire in his mouth. As I started creating this masterpiece, and merged the two images together, I even amazed myself. When I selected the Godzilla shot, I didn’t even realize how perfectly his front arm/claw was positioned & how it would form right around the monument spire!  But it really came together fantastic, as did all the rest of the Photoshop blending, cloning & merging ….and here we are! So I guess I found out that sometimes, I can even impress myself, without even knowing I am doing so! lol
Stevie & Kaitlyn….this one is for you!!! Great Job Kids!

And finally, I’ve gotta say….I’ve seen a lot of these shots, but this one is the Damn Best BY FAR! Color, Creativity, The Runners & the Site Location provide the Perfect Intersection of Fantasy & Reality!

My Bermuda, Interluda…

In between EVERYTHING else going on recently, I’m slowly digging into some of the images I captured during last months NYC – Bermuda vacation cruise. Here is the first batch of “Island Art” through my lens.
Also, I couldn’t repress the memories coming back to me, of a previous cruise journey that I set out on, way back in 1912. As those close to me know, I believe I was a passenger on the Titanic, and perished on that ill fated journey. Hence the couple of shipboard images that I tweaked from memory, to look vintage 1912. Enjoy!
