Santana July 2012

As usual never have a good camera at a concert. Taken from my phone, Carlos Santana at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston, Ma. He's still got it, saw him open for the Stones in long ago.

Tall Ships Boston-Editing In Picasa

Picasa is a free google app that has decent editing tools and offers free "limited" online storage. Recently I used it to edit the following picture I took on a boat ride on Boston Harbor on July 3rd 2012. 
The Roseway - St. Croix was built in 1925 in Essex, MA as a private fishing yacht, she was later purchased in 1941 and was honored for her service during World War II.
 This was the original shot I took of the ship as it sailed  by Logan Airport
I wanted to make the setting for the ship look older so I removed the crane and the plane from the background using the Touch Up Tool , converted the photo to "Cinemascope" and then used Focal Black and white leaving only color on the Flag.
