I've been lazy, I admit it. I've been shooting in RAW format, and the time it takes to process images has now doubled. I finally decided that I needed to review, process and post images I've taken this summer from places such as Ontario, Canada, rural Virginia, and the Del Marva peninsula, der hon.
These images fit the page title. Surreal. Both inside and out.
Tip 'o the lens to Robert de Gast, whose stunningly beautiful images of the Eastern Shore so inspired me, I had to go there myself. I felt a bit of artistic skeeviness in shooting some of the same locations, but well, got over it. Our styles could not be more different, despite our common passion for these amazing structures.
Yes, we're back to gratuitous effects. Deal. To me, that's what puts the SUR in the real.
