Mount Rushmore II …

leave a comment »

 

Here is one more of Mount Rushmore that I thought that I would post.  It was made back in the early 1950’s when my father made the other that I posted some time ago.  This one I left almost full frame and did not bother cropping out the people on the bottom left … I thought that they added some sense of scale to the photo.  I also ran the file through the Lucis Art Filter to bring out the detail in the rock and the stone.  The blueish color was added by me.  No, I was not trying to make this resemble a cyanotype … I just like blue “cool” mono-colored images.  I also did not bother taking out the lens flare in the top left corner.  Thanks for looking and as usual, all comments are appreciated … And thanks for checking back … Frank

Son Motors Employees …

with 2 comments

This is one of several Son Motors employees that I worked up recently.  I ran across this filter … Lucis Art Filter … that I purchased years ago and just put it in my photoshop filters.  I have always liked the look that you can achieve with it, it really brings out the detail in b&w images and does some strange things to color images.  I did several other workers that I am still working on and I will post them when I finish them up.  This is also the filter that I used in the above post of the inside of the chapel.  Let me know what you think … thanks for looking … Frank

Chapel in the Old Sacred Heart Hospital …

with 7 comments

This is still one of my favorite images from the old hospital.  I ran it through a filter … Lucis Art Filter … and this filter really brings out the detail in images.  Just look at the altar and all of the trim around the ceiling.  Believe it or not, I can still remember this chapel in the old hospital.  The room itself was not very large, maybe 15 x30 feet.  I have several prints of this in the works right now … check back with me later and I will let you know how and where you can view them.  If any of you remember this chapel in the old hospital, let us hear from you.  Thanks for looking … Frank

Rodolfo Guglielmi Valentino …

leave a comment »

You knew him as Rudolf Valentino … this is where he is enshrined at Forrest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.  I have had this negative laying around for a while and could not decide if I should post it or not, but I just figured why not?  If it upsets anyone, I can always take it down.  I wish that I some type of interesting story to accompany this image … give me some time and I will come up with something.  Thanks for looking … Frank
