Each year in downtown Venice, the Corvettes of Venice Club hosts a car show for other Corvette Clubs from other parts of Florida. In the morning, the car owners spend a lot of time detailing their cars to get them ready for the judging later in the day. From the gazebo, a DJ is playing oldies and car songs, perfect for this type of event. Vendors are also there selling food and various products. The Venice residents took advantage of the nice weather to stroll around and see Corvette models ranging from the 50’s to 2018.
At times, we are commissioned to create a Business Portrait of all the employees of a company. We photograph each employee individually. We then clip each subject to a transparent background. We assemble each person paying close attention that the heights are correct. That is the trickiest part! Once all the employees are assembled, we create different backgrounds. The following images are several different backgrounds. Our clients liked the last one. It was our favorite as well.
The client liked the last image. We did too. We also darkened the tops of the feet of two of the ladies. Needless to say, our client was very happy!
Last fall, we took a trip to Virginia. While there we toured Thomas Jefferson’s beautiful home, Monticello. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Thomas Jefferson and how life was at that time. Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello was run like a small town. He had slaves who worked on the land and in the house. They grew the food, made the meals, made their clothes, etc. They did it all at Monticello. The ironic thing that was mentioned in our tour is that Jefferson was remembered as a man who did not believe in slavery. Yet, he had slaves. It is also rumored he had fathered six children with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings. Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743 in Shadwell, VA. He died in his bed in Monticello on July 4, 1826. He was a draftsman of the Declaration of Independence and also served as the third President of the United States. While we were not allowed to take pictures inside, we took several outside!
