B Squared in Ocala?



Like most City Daily Photo bloggers, I thought B Squared from Fort Lauderdale Daily Photo has been in Michigan all summer.

Well, maybe not. He may have come up to Ocala and opened a business. It sure looks that way. Right on Baseline Road, too!

If you see him, ask him how he faked all those Michigan shots.

You can check out his blog here.

I know, he's living a dual life. By day, meek mild blogger.......by night, Salvage Man!!!

I'd like to know how you got that paint effect. Is simple to be done by photoshop filters only? I like the high contrast in the paint effect on that picture... nicely done.!

Wolynski said...

Did you do something to the first photo? Quite lovely, both of them.
I met Peter Yarrow a few times decades ago - what a nice man.

the place looks so spartan maybe a little too thrifty.

Sure he went to Michigan. He had to buy up all those winter coats and snow boots to sell in his thrift store in Ocala. I just bet it is him'

I think I will ask him--"hey you--what's up"?
He will be so red-faced. Good work undercover agent 'J'. MB

Very good catch! This remind me of a street in Paris (and a horse in London)...

That's funny. I guess can be in two places at once. An impressive trait.
I like the effects of the first picture. It makes it stand out.

Dianne said...

I love the effect of the top shot

I believe The Beach Boys said it first, "Round, round, get around. I get around." Thank You.

Hahahahahahaha.

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet - really? Ol' B Squared really does get around!

Jacob said...

@ Wolynski - Yes, the first photo has been polarized.

Jacob said...

@ Kcalpesh - It's very, very easy...if you're using Photoshop, go to Image adjustments and scroll down 'til you see Polarize. Click!

Asta said...

This is great. A fun day, and thanks so much for your comment on my anchor photo. Yes, that is a tall penisula with trees on it. It's called Tongue Point, and it sticks right out into the river!

Lisa Wilson said...

HAHAHA!! That's hilarious!

Memphis MOJO said...

Love the colors, especially in the first shot. Thanks for sharing.

Lois said...

That is a great find and a funny post Jacob!

Rose said...

I thought of him the minute I seen the first photo! I liked his reply!

Jarart said...

How funny!! I'm just trying to catch up real quick on my favorite blogs. We've been away the last two weeks, still are, but finally got wifi at this stop. Great shots as usual, love the one of your granddaughter. Sad about Mary too.
To answer your question, Jerome is a very busy place. Not many full time residents but the place is so popular that it's packed all the time. Lots of shops and places to eat too.

Looks like Mr. B Squared has an affiliate in Ocala. I remember he was travelling some time ago. He must have been opening this business then. Funny post! (;

Very good sleuthing, Jacob! You have the makings of a great investigative reporter. ;-)

Vogon Poet said...

@ Jacob - You forgot? Both had your 'name'!

Jacob said...

@ VP - Sheesh! I'm a little dense! Yes, now I remember! Maybe I'm just a little old!
