This back alley way in Merced always leaves a long strip of water in the parking lot after a rainstorm. I have always found the reflections in the water to be really interesting and fun to see when the light hits the water just right. I flipped this image upside down to give it an interesting effect. Enjoy!
During the week of Memorial Day, Merced College places flags on the front lawn of the campus. Each flag is dedicated to military personnel, firefighters, and police officers who have either served, are serving, or have passed in the line of duty. I have never actually went out to look at them up close, but this year I decided to. I found the flags to be even more beautiful up close. Enjoy!
I took this image while walking in downtown Merced the other night. The theater lights really stand out and this building is essentially what people associate with Merced. I thought it would be a little different to make this image black and white and only have “Merced” stand out. Enjoy!
Normal scenario: You see something interesting to photograph. You pick up your camera and move it to your face where you look through the viewfinder to frame your shot. This time I challenge you to photograph from at least three feet higher that you normally do. Ansel Adams, the famous American landscape photographer often photographed from a platform that was mounted on top of his car. You might want to photograph from the back of a pick-up truck, get a ladder or even use a quadcopter with a camera. As always, have fun with this exercise.
After the rain today I went out to photograph at the so called bike path at Rahilly park in Merced. Enjoy the image and keep on photographing!
Let us continue last weeks exercise and photograph our home community during the winter season.
I photographed this image in downtown Merced, CA. I discovered the the two trees could be photographed almost in a rectangle just by positioning the camera a little bit differently.
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
