The camera you have in your hand is the best one. You never know what is going to unfold before your eyes.
If I had known the grey pre-dawn mist would reveal this spectacular show, I would have had my Hasselblad camera. None-the-less the camera on hand was my Nikon, however the choice of lenses was limited to a 55 mm macro and a telephoto… Not your typical landscape choice.
I picked the 55, and the first seven exposures of my panorama were magic. Though not sure how a macro lens would work, I processed, stitched and was rewarded with this shot.
Looking at the image, it has a special quality that only the “pre-digital” 55 macro lens could provide. Sharp detail, yet painterly, with soft pastel hues.
Check out at my new “Little Salt Photography by Carol Ellis” wall at Island Interiors. This 54” panoramic canvas entitled “Pastel Dawn”, as well as examples of a wide range of my previous work is on display Monday ~ Friday.

Hiding your flat screen TV behind a photo frame is a growing trend, however the standard selection of artwork may not fit your style. Or maybe you just want to be different?
Janet wanted local artwork, with colors fitting with her color scheme. So we hand colored the artwork to match the fabrics in the room. The product of our collaboration is “Fred’s Place ~ Downtown Card Sound” and here we stand beside the finished work of art.
It’s March Mango time! I’m crazy about this fruit; its colors reminiscent of a Florida Keys sunset, and sweet flesh, sticky as a warm sunny day. This winter’s abundance of blossoms herald a banner harvest.
“Mangoes” was created through the use of scanography, a photographic technique, where items are laid on a flatbed scanner, to capture an image. In this case, tree ripened fruit from the garden were arranged against a neutral ground. The abstract background, which surrounds and overlays the edges, was brushed in with Photoshop.
“Mangoes” was selected for inclusion in the 2019 Culture publication by the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, and now the 60” x 40” original work on plexi is on view in the showroom window at Island Interiors at Ocean Reef.
Marci Larson, ASID has not only added a background for “Mangoes”; with her designer talents, she’s kicked it up a notch.
“Mangoes” will be on display through March.
