If you know cars at all, then the name Carroll Shelby will certainly speak to you. The world lost this icon of the automotive industry a few weeks ago. If you know Carroll Shelby, you will certainly be familiar with his trademark cowboy hat. These three photographs were taken on June 30, 2006 in Danville, Virginia at a national Shelby convention. This is a shadow of my father on his 1966 Shelby GT-350, wearing a hat reminiscent of Carroll Shelby’s profile. Carroll Shelby’s vision transformed the need for performance in the automotive industry and the rest is history.
The 158 foot Currituck Beach Lighthouse, built in 1875 on the North Carolina Coast, was a pleasure to photograph. As awe inspiring as a lighthouse can be from the outside, it is the interior that can often lead to wonderful imagery with its geometric patterns and shapes combined with dramatic lighting and a few tourists in motion.
We really enjoyed the dramatic sky at The Parthenon in Greece.

The 2004 Olympic Stadium in Greece made by stitching a few images together and dodging and burning for the detail in the sky.
