I’m just an amateur photographer (ie: snap-shots), and basically enjoy riding around the local area (Bay City, Bay County, Michigan, US). I’ll take pictures of anything that grabs my eye (maybe a stray flower, or a landscape scene, or even merely a building. Most of my shots of buildings include many different angles, since I also dabble in building 3-D models for Google Earth, using the SketchUp program. I also got hooked on tall ships back in 2010 (Bay City, Michigan is the ‘main’ port-of-call for the State of Michigan), and go overboard in a most extreme manner.

Lately I’ve been working on creating photograph paintings and drawings from my photographs. I use Corel® Painter Photo Essentials 4 to ‘paint’ or ‘draw’ my original photographs. Normally, I do not edit my photos very much. Mostly I’ll simply straighten, crop, then use a one-step enhancement.

Please note that any hotlinks inside my descriptions lead directly either to the subject’s official website (if such exists…and I can find it), or to a general-purpose reference (mostly Wikipedia). So, there aren’t any ‘sneaky’ re-directs, unless the site itself (or, possibly RedBubble) does so.
