Morning Cherry Blossoms

Morning Cherry Blossoms

The sun has just risen and it was effectively daylight when I shot this picture of the cherry blossoms. The moon was still in the sky and it was originally in this image but I had to take it out just because it was so bright it didn’t blend into the rest of the image. Use your imagination and visualize it between the two trees. That’s where it originally was. One of the joys of doing any type of nature…

Rider At Dawn

Rider At Dawn

I shot two locations over the weekend. The Tidal Basin in Washington, DC and Manassas Battlefield in Manassas, Virginia. After I shot the moon I saw this statue when I arrived. What you see is roughly what I saw when I turned my attention that way. My first thought was what the hell is the rider doing there but then it dawned on me it was a statue of a Civil War soldier. I didn’t read the plaque that was…

Good Morning Mr. Jefferson

Good Morning Mr. Jefferson

So I was at the Washington DC Tidal Basin to shoot the cherry blossoms this past Saturday. Since I got there at ass o’clock in the morning I had some time to kill before the sun was up so I figured why not get some cool shoots of the Jefferson Memorial since I was looking at it. Seemed the proper thing to do and all. This was the second outing with my Sony 24-240mm lens and I’m in love with…

Transition to Dawn

Transition to Dawn

I have been doing early morning shoots which means getting up something on the lines of ass o’clock (recognized time) in the morning to get to where I need to go so I can get my shots. I have been all over the last few days shooting just shooting and then heading home and taking much needed naps so I can be fresh for World Cup and Olympic Qualifies along with Euro 2016 friendlies (football matches for the unknowing). This…

Evening Rush Hour

Evening Rush Hour

I shot this while I was down in DC for work. I forget the name of the bridge, its one that goes over Rock Creek Parkway and its Connecticut Avenue. It was still rush hour which goes till just a little after 7 PM. So I setup my tripod knowing it was going to be a long exposure and the lights from the cars would give me a cool effect. I went low key for this image then did a…

Signs of Renewal

Signs of Renewal

Its Spring finally in the Washington DC area! That means the frigid subarctic temperatures are finally banished! Least thats the story I am going with. I have had to turn on aircon on since early March. So since I walk to work now I usually have a camera or two with me. In this case I had my Sony RX100M3 and the Canon S100. When I needed a longer reach I used the S100 since it can zoom to 100mm….

Capitol Dome

Capitol Dome

I found image of the Capitol Dome¬†while I was looking for the Prague Castle images I knew I had. It’s shot from 2011 when I was first switching to RAW and considering photography as something more than taking vacation shots. In retrospect I should have stuck with vacation shots because I would be thousands richer for it. My buddy and I did an early morning shoot around the US Capitol and I arrived a bit earlier than him so I…

Prague Reimaged – Part 4

Prague Reimaged – Part 4

So ends the return to Prague. It’s been an adventure in editing. I don’t think I have ever published this many images ever. Only time I do this much editing is when I have a job to turn over to someone. I have never editing this much personal work in the span of a couple days. I don’t care how ergonomic your setup is your hand starts to cramp after a bit. Most of these images were shot in Prague…

Prague Reimaged – Part 3

Prague Reimaged – Part 3

Well I can now say that there will be 4 parts to this series. It has been a massive undertaking with over 80 images published. Provided I didn’t screw up the count there will be 20 images today and another 20 tomorrow. This batch took me much longer because I had to find an entire missing series of photos which will be tomorrows. While this may get a bit repetitive I can tell you part 4 seems to be when…

Prague Reimaged – Part 2

Prague Reimaged – Part 2

This is actually the second batch I started with the part 1 post. There were so many images to edit that I could not do it in one sitting. I just went through just a day in the Lightroom catalogue and started the basic editing then exported them into Photoshop. These images weren’t shot in one day but I know I screwed up the catalogue when I switched machines years ago. Apologies in advance again for some of the picture…
