Photo looking down through a storm drain at Walmart from Dec. 2005. Think about this while you’re eating your turkey. Happy Thanksgiving 2010.

A view across the lake. The water was in fact quite green, but I corrected that by changing the white balance.

This is a new edit of a photo I took in 2005. The original was quite dull, but with a simple contrast enhancement it became a memorable photo.

One of my early photos from Dec. 2004. In the beginning, I made the mistake of setting my 2MP Fujifilm FinePix 2650 to 1 megapixel resolution, which was 1280×960 instead of 1600×1200. At the time, I had a computer with a 4GB HDD and monitor with a resolution of 1024×768, so I saw no reason to take higher quality photos. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

This is newly edited with Photoshop CS5. I added a lot of contrast and made the white balance warmer. Every version of Photoshop gets easier to use, at least in my opinion. The auto contrast and auto tone functions work better now, and I find myself using them rather than curves more often than ever. However, the auto color feature still sucks.

I will only be posting photos from 2005 for the rest of November 2010 and some of December. I will also get into the 2006 photos next month. For a preview of what’s coming, look at the photos I posted on deviantART in late 2005 and early 2006. I will be reposting them here, but with different descriptions, titles, and much better editing.

The fountain in front of Riverside National Bank in Orange City, in November 2005. I’m not sure if it’s still there.

The ocean at night in October 2005. Since I had a crappy camera at the time, this was very under-exposed. I brightened it a lot but there is tons of grains and hot pixels. The photo looks good at low resolution, though.

Just a typical bird drying his feathers. I don’t know anything about birds so I couldn’t tell you what kind this is.

Return to Daytona Beach in August of 2005. I live 5 miles from the beach but rarely go there. The closer you live to the beach, the less you care about it.

The waves at Daytona Beach in January of 2005. There were a lot of birds there; you can see one at the bottom.

Today is my 19th birthday!

The Swamp

Another photo from Gemini Springs park; this time, of stagnant water. Mold and shrubbery can grow on stagnant water. That’s why most stationary ponds have fountains: the water must be kept flowing to stop bacteria from festering.

Downstream from the springs at the Gemini Springs park in Gemini Springs, Florida. There is a lot of algae and that tree is precariously perched.
