This first photo was taken in the botanical gardens by UAF. I put my camera in this arch and took a picture of the tree above focusing on the flowers. I had to keep a little grain to have the details show.
I work as a firefighter and EMT and this picture was taken from on top of one of our engines looking down at another firefighter’s bunker gear. It edited as much grain out as I could, but I had to leave some to have details or it looks too smooth.
This last photo is a showcase of both new and old with a picture of an older tender (the smaller vehicle) and a brand new engine. I had fun with this point of view since we don’t often look upside down.
