Our House, Austin TX

It's a very very very fine house, but one of the cats in the yard isn't ours.

Trees in bud, late February in Texas (ah for the glorious days of February again).

Submerged Church, Probably TX or NM

View of Cathedral Town development from cathedral.

New parts of Markham are predominantly ethnically Chinese, which may help understand this particular peculiarity, or maybe not.

I take landscape photos that seem to me revealing of something or other.
Often I try to make them look sort of like oil paintings or watercolors.
So far the only tool I have used besides a camera is iPhoto.
So far I have avoided any retouching or other spot effects.
I often turn "noise reduction" way up to deliberately remove small details.
So far they are all taken in North America.
They usually come out sort of hyperrealistic, but sometimes impressionistic.
Sometimes they come out lousy, but I won't post those.

Best viewed on Apple LCD hardware with factory settings.
