Bring On The Flying Monkeys

Photograph of view from Griffith Observatory to downtown Los Angeles, California on an overcast day. When standing there I couldn’t help being reminded of the Wizard Of Oz movie and could almost imagine the flying monkeys taking off from the witches castle with the city of Oz in the background. Took this with my iPhone and the “Hipstamatic” app  and camera settings were Lens:Loftus…Film:DC…Flash:None. Did additional photo processing with “Dynamic Light” app and finished it off with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Downtown San Jose

Nothing special, just the view of downtown San Jose from my hotel window. In the center is Adobe headquarters from whom we have to thank for Photoshop. Used a Nikon D2x and 17-55mm lens and did perspective correction in Photoshop to straighten out the tilt in the buildings because of using a wide angle lens.

Union Station

Was picking up someone from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and thought it would be a good time to take a few pictures while I was waiting for their train to arrive. First let me say that it is a beautiful old facility and worth a trip just to see it if you have never been there. They just don’t make public buildings like this anymore. Used a Nikon D3 camera body for this photograph.
