Rocky Shores of Thailand

Rocky Shores of Thailand

I shot this when I was in Thailand last year. I have so many images I never published because I just didn’t know what to do with them. I have no exact idea where I was when I shot this. I started at Wongamat Beach and just started walking taking images with my camera. It’s slightly weird that I keep dipping into my archives because I have a huge volume of images I have shot and just haven’t touched. I…

Family Day Out

Family Day Out

I shot this while I was hiking on the C&O Canal along Great Falls on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. I had to take this picture quickly. I had seen the family when I was shooting other stuff and I really just liked the light that was coming off the river. I know they spoke Russian or one of the Slavic languages from that region because I recognized the sound. Normally I don’t shoot small children because some parents…

Winter Flowers

Winter Flowers

When I was in Florida I was informed that I would take pictures of flowers in a garden. I like to think I fulfilled my obligation with these images. I only took my Sony RX10 with me to Florida as it was a quick trip. It was also a test of my new mobile workflow which means just a smaller external SSD drive and a Lightroom library to dump images to. When I return home I then import the images into…

Eiffel Tower via Las Vegas

Eiffel Tower via Las Vegas

Home after 3 days in Florida. Didn’t shoot much while there but I got a lot of aerial photos on my way to Florida. Once I get some time from another project I’m working on I may get to them. Right now I’m a wee bit tired from traveling so keeping things simple. This is the Eiffel Tower that is apart of the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. When I got to Las Vegas I stay at the Planet Hollywood…

Goodbye Green and Blue

Goodbye Green and Blue

I am flying back to frigid Maryland today after 3 days in Florida. So why not post a picture that will help remember what warm feels like. This was taken on Sanibel Island pointing toward Fort Myers, Beach in the distance. This is from the archives too and I never published this one. I took it with my Ricoh GR when I had it. Lovely camera and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fixed lens camera. The…

Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing

This one is from the archives and I published it before. You can see the original here. I was in my HDR everything phase and it showed. The image was crap. I was digging around for some other images for Instagram to publish there and I came across this one again. With me traveling to Florida where I took this image I might as well republish it. This time I did not HDR it to death in some attempt to prove…

Light Up Fall

Light Up Fall

I shot this in some small park in Baltimore when I was playing with my Sony RX10. The perspective is a bit weird but I wanted the focus on the light and the colors of the tree above it. I have been amazed at what I have been able to achieve with the Sony RX10. While I have the first version which means it doesn’t do 4K video I doubt the sensor has changed that much between the I and…

World Within A World

World Within A World

This the Bean thing in Chicago. It’s really called Cloud Gate and it’s located in Millennium Park in downtown. If you are near Michigan Ave and Wacker Ave. it’s an easy walk. I have published a similar image before. I really did this because I wanted to play with HDR and test Aurora 2017 and doing layers with it. So not my finest work in life but it did what I needed. I have had Aurora 2017 for some time….

Fall From A Different Perspective

Fall From A Different Perspective

Think it’s rather obvious why I titled this one like I did. It was taken at Brookside Gardens. I was playing around with the Sony RX10 and the guy who sold it to me also tossed in a Manfrotto tabletop tripod. This worked out because the one I had wasn’t that sturdy and it was like 20 years old. The Manfrotto worked out great as it fit within my bag and I could honestly leave it attached to the camera and…

The Abstract Fall

The Abstract Fall

This is from Brookside Gardens when I took out my Sony RX10 for a test spin to see how it would perform. The final image reminds me of an abstract painting. I took this picture strictly because of the light coming through the leaves. It backlit the leaves perfectly. I believe I used the camera’s built-in 3-stop neutral density filter to give me a bit more dynamic range. While never a real substitute for a real filter it does work…
