Painterly With Reflections

Painterly With Reflections

These are two more images from Brookside Gardens in the Fall. They felt a bit painterly hence the title. It just struct me that today’s images and yesterday’s images were supposed to be another set but I messed it up. I thought I put them in a folder but I guess I didn’t. I guess it worked out for the best so I’m running with it. They were all about reflections but in the end it worked out as I’m…

Gazebo Over The Pond

Gazebo Over The Pond

These are two from the gazebo at Brookside Gardens over one of the small ponds that dot Brookside Gardens. This is one was donated by the Korean community. I am doing two images. While visually different they do work together as a set. I also didn’t want them to be stand-alone images. So I figured why not throw in the two images together and call them a set. So that is why there is two. These were edited the same…

Remember The Fall – Part 2

Remember The Fall – Part 2

This finishes up the set for remember the fall. These were all shot at Brookside Gardens using my Sony RX10. When I do sets like this I like to break them up into smaller portions. I will tend to push it to no more than 10 images. This is because when you review so many images at once you tend to lose the details as your brain is trying to focus on so much visual input. It’s one of the…

Remember The Fall – Part 1

Remember The Fall – Part 1

This is part one of a two part series. These were all shot on my Sony RX10 at Brookside Gardens. I just now got around to editing them. Plus using remember the fall sounds more dramatic. These were all taken while I was playing with my Sony RX10 as I indicated. I had no real idea what I was going to get when I arrived. I just wandered around and shot a lot of landscape stuff along with the fall…

Lake Effect

Lake Effect

I have no idea what the name of this lake is. In fact, I had just found it on a this visit to Brookside Gardens. I just took a wander around with my Sony RX10 and started to take some photos. I really liked the water with the weird holesĀ and the reflections of the trees flowing into the real trees. If you blow it up to full size you can see a guy fishing on the water drain area. Even…

Subtle Reflections

Subtle Reflections

This was shot at Brookside Gardens last Fall. I was playing around with my Sony RX10 which I had recently purchased. With upcoming travels I’m not bothering to take my DSLR’s. Just the Sony RX10 and the RX100iii I own. These two cameras will shoot almost anything I need to without the need to pack an additional camera bag. There is always a tradeoff when going with a bridge camera or a compact but the Sony sensors can produce solid…

Space Shuttle Discovery

Space Shuttle Discovery

Took at trip to the Udvar-Hazy Center which is apart of the Smithsonian. Went for a specific shot in mind but I figured when I was there why not photograph the Discovery. This is a bit of a departure from my normal work. I went and shot this documentary style. Giving different angles and views of the same subject. I hope it conveys the sheer size of the shuttle. You just don’t realize how big it is until you see…

Reflecting Washington

Reflecting Washington

This is the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall in Washington DC. The Lincoln Memorial was behind me as the two monuments face each other with the pool between them. Shot this the day before Presidents Day here in America. It was absolute chaos down there because it was a 3-day weekend and the weather was really nice. So I was fighting for space. Everyone was wanting to take pictures or selfies of the reflecting pool. I am polite and…

Frothing Away

Frothing Away

This was shot at Great Falls earlier this year. Was a warm day so I took a hike out there. The title is a bit sketchy but it popped into my head. Sometimes these things are easy to name and sometimes they are not. Sometimes an image just needs a monochrome conversion to bring out the details. There wasn’t a lot of color to begin with so I wanted it to be about the texture of the rocks and water….

Bridge Over Placid Water

Bridge Over Placid Water

Shot this along the waterfront in Washington DC. The bridge is Memorial Bridge and the city behind it is Roslyn in Virginia. Not in love with this image but the more I looked at it the more I figured why not publish it. There is nothing wrong with it. It’s just not exciting. It’s one of those solid images that work but doesn’t do a lot more. I shot this on my A7R and I believe my 24-240 lens which…
