Electric Motor Shop - Fresno, California

Bekins Building - Fresno, California

Lightroom is an amazingly powerful photo "developing" program.  I am continuously impressed by how much you can increase the visual value of even the least interesting photographs. That isn't to say that I find the Bekins Storage building uninteresting; just the opposite is so. I love interesting architecture, abandoned buildings, and the contrast between eras. Actually, this building is so much more interesting than modern warehouses and storage facilities. My point about the power of Lightroom to convert "least interesting" photos was because the original photo was not taken in particularly good light, but I was able to save the shot by running it through Lightroom.

Dead Tree at Buzzard's Roost

This dead tree reminded me of so many of the drawings of creepy trees in books when I was a kid.  It looks like a screaming monster with a yawning mouth; one hand clutching the earth and the other reaching up to the sky.  This scene was shot with a Nikon D90 and then developed in Adobe Lightroom.  The tree is on the Buzzard's Roost Trail at Millerton Lake, California.
