Montenegran Mausoleum


So I'm driving down some switchbacks between Lovćen National Park and Erakovići, Montenegro when I see the top of this mausoleum growing from the cliffside ahead.  I slammed on the brake, slid the rented Opel into a roadside parking spot, and dodged a swinging fist from my friend in the passenger seat who was not amused by my antics.  After I gave her a print of the photo, she forgave me.

Chicago skyline reflected in "The Bean"
Monochrome version of one of my entries in the Reflections 4 contest from Jan 30, 2019.

CiliarySpasm himself applauded this one which I considered very high praise indeed coming from him.
He also added "a night visit to The Bean" to his bucket list, and I sincerely hope he got to check that one off.

I have a print of this, framed on my wall beside me. However, I didn't realize that I don't have the original digital copy of this in B&W. So, I had to go and recreate it, which works out nicely as the latest version of Lightroom does a much nicer job of converting to B&W!

Three palms and the moon.  This was an original color image that was taken freehand in very low light with very high ISO as the full moon was rising over some sand dunes at the beach.  Try as I might the color noise was too much to make presentable.  The conversion to black and white completely eliminated the problem and made the remaining noise acceptable, even "atmospheric".

I shot this in B/W back in '84 at a Mondale/Ferraro Rally in San Francisco. This man was such a character.
