March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Bell Tower In Black And White

Monrovia High School.  This is the second of the weekend photos using more than my typical amount of post processing.  This is a single file, tone mapped and converted to black and white using the software program Dynamic Photo HDR.

thats an interesting program. I looked it up and watched the video.
I attended an adult education class at Monrovia High. Such a beautiful building...Malibu or Catalina tiles on the dome.
btw: I like your composition with the little bit of mountain peeking through

Thanks, Pas Adj. Those tiles need binoculars or a photograph to appreciate, they are so high up.

I gave some thought to cropping the mountain top out but decided against it. Glad I did.
