Broadway Pier

Broadway Pier, San Diego at sunset

I absolutely love sunset pictures. When the rays pass through objects I just think it’s beautiful. I drove passed this pier while driving downtown San Diego. I passed it and knew I had to take a picture. There will be more to come, I promise 🙂

sweet serenity,



“The House” – A DMagick Photo

This is the beginning of a new section of this blog, photography. Sometimes I get inspired to take pictures and then manipulate them into art pieces. This is a house I found in Ocean Beach here in San Diego, and I thought how cool it would look if I took it to a darker place. I removed the background, and put an HDR Toning on it. I desaturated most of the color and put ominous clouds in the back of it. Then I manipulated the pixels to make it look more like an oil painting.

Let me know what you think! 🙂
