Winter

Even though I am in sunny Florida, I cannot escape the cold breath of winter.  I get constant reports and updates of the bitter temperatures and mountains of snow.  I do not miss these things at all but there is still some beauty to be found that isn't stark white.
This hand colored photo of Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, MA was taken on a January day and captures the cold, raw feeling of the ocean in Winter.

Hand Colored Photos

Several years ago I did some hand colored black and white photos.  I had long been intrigued by the process, ever since I had seen some postcards and landscapes in an antique shop many years ago.  I read about the process and decided to try it. 
It is very time consuming and can be tedious but I loved the results.  These are photos of two subjects I did that were not landscapes or outdoor scenes.
