Thai Rising – Part 2

Thai Rising – Part 2

Wrapping up the Thai buildings today. These were all shot on my A7R except for the first one and were originally shot for HDR but I when it came time to post processing I just opted for a more normal edit. It went with the rest of the series. I am heading home today back to the East Coast of the US. Costa Rica had been fun and its been a cool little trip. Home for awhile then off to Portland,…

Thai Rising – Part 1

Thai Rising – Part 1

Since I am in Costa Rica and not the biggest fan on editing off a 13″ Macbook screen I have pre-edited all the images. I’m going to split these up into two posts then return with more flowers for Tuesday. I personally like tall buildings. Don’t know why but I do. There isn’t anything overly special about Thai buildings. Some have a bit of an Asian feel to them but for the most part are typical resort style hotels and…

Ground Control

Ground Control

These images were shot in Incheon, South Korea when I was laying over on my way to Thailand last year. I figured why not share them now as I flew a couple days ago and sitting in Costa Rica as I type this up. Nothing overly fancy here with the editing. Just me and the Wacom tablet bonding. The images were shot on my Sony RX100M3. The craziest thing I did was the 2.4 to 1 crop on the first…

Shimmers of Gold

Shimmers of Gold

This is from the Southwest DC Waterfront. There are lots of boats docked down there and people actively live on them. Most marinas are empty in the winter but this one had people coming and going and going. You could tell a lived from one that was winterized. While I complain about the subarctic conditions the reality is winters in DC are fairly mild with only a few cold days so you can keep a boat in the water without…

Secret Garden – Part 2

Secret Garden – Part 2

With a break from flowers with some architectural stuff I feel I can attempt some more flowers! So I return to my secret garden or the US National Botanical Gardens. Considering I was stuck behind a Chinese tour group with photo permits for tripods I guess its not that secret. I have encountered Chinese tour groups before in Thailand and they are serious about their gear. I was genuinely impressed by the tripod permits they had. They are not that…

Vegas Rising

Vegas Rising

I don’t really want to do all my flower stuff at once. I have a lot of it so don’t worry they will return. So instead I shifted back to some of the Las Vegas stuff I shot before I jumped on a plane and flew to Thailand for 6 weeks. Most of these are around that Aria Hotel and Casino and I don’t pretend to know the names of them. The buildings aren’t straight and they just out at…

Secret Garden

Secret Garden

So I’ll reveal where I shot recently; it was the US National Botanical Garden. I had attempted to shoot there a week before but my car’s very expensive and recently replaced alternator died so I delayed it a week. Considering its the US National Botanical Garden its not really a secret and as a bonus no concerned citizen asked me not to take pictures! I have not shot flora in a long time. I think it was June of last…

Don’t Drink The Water

Don’t Drink The Water

Got a theme going today for this image set. Self explanatory I think. I still don’t want to give away where I shot but there are major clues here simply because of the foliage. I despise cold so it wasn’t an outdoor garden in Washington DC so that should be a major clue. Plus it drives my Mom nuts that I won’t tell her. There were all taken on my Sony RX100M3 except 2. The other 2 were shot on…

Two Different Styles

Two Different Styles

I was out shooting yesterday and I already had my camera packed up so I just used my phone. While I was in a major tourist area where cameras are common and not unusual no one thought anything of me with my cell phone. As I mentioned earlier my cell phone is a rather good camera. I have a Nexus 6P which has a 12MP sensor in it and I use Camera FV-5 app that uses the 6P’s ability to shoot…

The Low Side of the Tracks

The Low Side of the Tracks

This one is from Las Vegas. One of the buildings is the Cosmopolitan and the others I want to say Wynn but I honestly don’t remember. I had just crossed a pedestrian bridge over Las Vegas Blvd and setup my tripod for the shots. I liked how the tracks just ran through the buildings that towered above. The image felt better in monochrome than color. It was a nightmare getting perspective corrected because the buildings aren’t straight on purpose. If…
