Harmon Family Reunion 2010

Check out the slide show...

If you want a set of 4 x 6's for all 100 images, e-mail me and let me know.

If you want enlargements, you can either email me or order them directly from:

Do not try to make prints from the electronic images.  The quality is too lousy for doing that.

Church gate / Winchester, KY

Defused and desatured produces an mystical image.  I discovered how to do this digitally while at the Winchester Ball Room and Gallery. I always learn something when I go to town.

Cola Blessings

A panoramic image of a stucture built in the 1930's and has fallen into disrepair. This building is located about 10 miles northwest of Dayton, Ohio near the corner of Union and Westbrook Roads.
As a teen I had a lawn mowing service and this is where we took my Wheelhorse tractor to be serviced.

Natchez Trace "S" Bridge

I suppose for different reasons than the early road builders in Ohio, the DNR constructed an "S" bridge on the Natchez Trace near the northern head in Tennessee.  Regardless of their reason, the bridge does not disrupt the beauty of the winding highway where ancient migrations took place, formed a path for native americans and early white settlers.

Dayton, Ohio / Fountain at Riverscape

The fountain at Riverscape in Dayton, Ohio is the reportedly the world's largest river based fountain. It is symmetrically designed with five perimeter towers, equally spaced as if points on a five pointed star, and a center fountain that shoots water straight up. If you want to know more, click here: Riverscape Fountain.

The view is from the arch foot bridge across the Mad River just before it joins the Great Miami River in the background. The small peninsula is the tip of Deed's Point, named after Edward Deeds, an early 20th Century industrial leader and engineer. He was also a co-founder of the historic Engineers Club in Dayton and the first Chief Engineer of the Miami Conservancy District - a flood control governing body of which he played a leading part in its development.
This image was created by stitching three images together. Each was taken in "portrait", 3000 high by 2000 wide. Up close, the fountain is too large to all be seen at once, even with the natural view.

Huffman Prairie Flying Field

The hue of the one above has been changed and the result is an image that is practically 3 D. Enlarge the photo by double clicking on it then look directly at the Monarch Butterfly - see if it doesn't take on a 3 D quality.

The spider's web has collected morning dew and I've manipulated the image to enhance the image.

Rendering a Photo

Sometimes a photo just will not come out the way I expect it to - and eventhough this young lady is photogenic, the image I created just was not satisfactory. I did a couple of things to make it something else. These are some things I did.
1. did a little touchup.
2. evened out some skin tones.
3. desaturated and reduced contrast considerbly.
4. cropped the photo and made it landscape instead of portrait
5. increased image size
6. rendered it to similate an oil painting
7. increased the saturation
8. increased the contrast

If you double click on the photo it will enlarge and you will see more of the rendering qualities in a double image.

Thanks, Miss Naomi, for your great patience.

My Father's Eyes

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my Prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.
Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
When I look in my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.

Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
That's when I need my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose Him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That He was here with me;
I looked into my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
I looked into my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
I looked into my Father's eyes.
My Father's eyes.
