The Perfect Size and The Perfect Resolution for Blog/Website Images

For blog images, two questions come to mind: the perfect resolution and the perfect size.  For size, I worry about how well the image fits in a visitor’s browser.   Many times, I prefer presenting images that fill the whole browser.  As for resolution, I worry mostly about visitors stealing my pics.   A person can only...

Photos of Different Roses Growing in Central Florida

I photographed the following Central Florida rose pics both in Winter Park’s Central Park and Orlando’s Leu Garden.  At least, that much I definitely remember.  Due to bad organization,  I don’t know where which of the two spots some photos actually took place. Yet, I am quite sure the reader will enjoy the photos.  Some... Read More »

Camellias at Mead Botanical Garden in Winter Park, Florida

Camellias changed my mind about January, a month I always hated.  Why did I always hate January?  Annoying cold weather, even here in Florida.  Also, credit card bills from Christmas shopping.  Plus some trees contain no leaves around this time of year, an unpleasant sight in my eyes. Yet, one New Years morning, I took... Read More »

February Trip to Daytona Beach, Florida

One February morning, I drove from Orlando to Daytona Beach, Florida.  Because this is Florida, some of the following pics prove it wasn’t cold that day.  As folks located in other parts of the nation probably wore coats (especially the North East and Midwest), many people in these pics are dressed in shorts.  One photo...

Orlando Rules Halloween (includes photos to prove it)

In his Orlando Weekly article, Seth Kubersky had it right. When it comes to Halloween, Orlando rules. This is the same city that hosts Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, an annual event attracting visitors from all over the country. I think Halloween Horror Nights starts the first week of October and lasts until the first... Read More »

Downtown Orlando’s Cairo

Cairo existed in Downtown Orlando, Florida. Being over thirty, I considered myself somewhat too old to be hanging here.  Yet, from 2001 to 2002, I showed up anyway. I really didn’t know if cameras were allowed or not.  Yet, I wasn’t taking any chances on finding out.  So, I sneaked a camera in anyway, a... Read More »

Bikini Contest at Florida’s Cocoa Beach Pier

Back in June 2007, I visited a friend in Cape Canaveral, Florida. For those that don’t know, Cape Canaveral exists on Florida’s Space Coast, the home of NASA. My buddy told me about a bikini contest happening at The Cocoa Beach Pier. Yet, wouldn’t you know it, my Canon Rebel DSLR wouldn’t work.  Instead, I... Read More »

Florida Space Coast’s Port Canaveral

Between 2006 to 2008, I used to drive from Orlando to Florida’s Brevard County.  Usually, the trip to the Space Coast involved me spending the weekend with a friend who lived in Cape Canaveral. Why they call it the Space Coast?  NASA being located here, that’s why. The one time I visited Brevard and didn’t... Read More »

Chained Women, Whips and Masks in Downtown Orlando

In the past two blogs, I wrote about photographing Orlando events hosted by Tania Bernard. The first blog involved my first time using digital photography for an event. The second involved my last days using film. I photographed Tania’s freaky events for a third and final time. Like the previous events, this one happened at... Read More »

A Freaky Downtown Orlando Event

For years, I photographed Tania Bernard’s events, especially the freaky ones involving whips and half-dressed women. The now-closed Knock Knock existed in Downtown Orlando.  Mostly, the bar hosted DJs.  Yet, events like Tania’s took place there too. For the following photos, I used my Olympus Camedia. Plus I added an extra flash.  With the flash... Read More »

October Visit to Daytona Beach, Florida

For me, Florida’s beach season exists between March and August. Don’t ask how I came to that conclusion.  I couldn’t tell you. Once, I drove to the beach during January.  Yet, I never visited during fall.  In 2003, one October Saturday changed that. On that day, I drove to Daytona Beach. At this time, I... Read More »

Some I photographed with my Canon Digital Rebel.  Others I photographed on the photo setting of my Toshiba camcorder.  All photos involve Central Florida’s nightlife.  Enjoy. Follow and like...

Hot Air Balloons Flying Over My Apartment Complex

From 1979 to 1992, I lived in St, John’s Village Apartments.  A twenty minute drive from Orlando,  St, John’s existed in Fern Park, Florida.  Here I lived with my mother and younger brother. One January morning in 1985, hot air balloons flew over the apartment complex.  I think this was a Saturday. I forgot what... Read More »

A Car Resembling a Creation from the Movie TRON

When it comes to custom cars, I’ve witnessed many varieties.  Some containing huge wheels and shiny rims.  Others painted one color on top and another color on the bottom.  Yet, one Friday night during a DJ gig, one car definitely stood out among the rest.  Locals called it The TRON Car. This happened in Downtown... Read More »
