Miami Beach!

The week of January 14th was spent in beautiful Miami beach.
I was thinking that I hadn't been to Florida since I was in college, and mentioned to Michele that it would be nice to just go and kick back by the ocean. She agreed , but said if we were going to do it we should do it while it is cold. That sounded smart so we decided to go to Miami which we had never visited before. Wise choice. The fist pictures are of Michele and I parasailing being pulled by a boat.
It was fun. Michele insisted she wouldn't do it , but toughened up and ended up loving it. We cruised the Miami beach waterfront by parachute for about 15 minutes before they hauled us back in. Miami beach has a lot of Art Deco hotels and is a cool place . More pictures to come

New year. new theme!

A new type of image for the new year. This is something unlike anything seen on here before. Just to show I'm not totally focused on one idea. I have always loved the water lillies that Monet painted. I remember sitting in the Chicago art institute looking at them for a long time.
When I found out I had a software add on called impressionist in photoshop I started playing with it and I thought about water lillies. last spring my wife and I went to visit my cousin who along with his wife are very good gardeners and have 5 lilly ponds. I was planning a shot like this all along. The final has brush strokes added and extra flowers and fish. I like it , It could lead to more, you think?......
