Beach Path

Beach Path

This is a pathway to Jomtein Beach in Thailand. I took it a couple years ago when I first got my Sony A7R. I was using some adapted Tokina lens because I didn’t have any native FE lenses at the time. For years I never really ventured to the Jomtein area. This was a result of me not having a motorbike and be terrified of riding in Thailand. Over the years as I got more adventurous I wandered off the…

Chicago Skyline

Chicago Skyline

Shot this in Chicago last year when I visited the Navy Pier. I can’t tell you what part of Chicago this is since I don’t know the city that well but rest assured, it is Chicago. There is something cool about a cityscape. You get all sorts of cool lights going on in the image. It helps when the sky cooperates and you get some nice light to make everything look good. It was taken at the phase between golden hour…

Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot

This was taken in Portland last year. After going through the images I found a few more that I figured I wanted to process. I remember the day I took this because it was cold and grey. I was up before dawn and doing long exposures while the sky was still dark. As it got light I just kept pressing on and shooting not knowing what I was going to get out of it. Happy I did. I have discovered that…

Splash Of Color

Splash Of Color

This is the sky wheel at National Harbor in Maryland. I spent the last week working on the opposite side of the river and could see it so I revisited the images I took earlier and found this one. I have seen skywheels in a lot of places I have traveled to. I’ll let everyone in on a dirty secret. I have never actually been on one. Not because I have a fear of heights or whatever. I’m basically too cheap…

Portland Bridges

Portland Bridges

No idea what the name of this bridge is or any of them. All I know is I was in Portland, Oregon standing on a floating dock and taking images. I was in Portland last year for for work which I took this image. There wasn’t very good light and I was shooting at the ass crack of dawn which is not my normal time. I am the landscape photographer that will do evening and night shots until dawn but…

Clouds Over The Potomac

Clouds Over The Potomac

This is a shot from National Harbor of the clouds over the Potomac River. You can see the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in the background. I shot this last year and was playing click around the photo library game. No idea why I didn’t edit it but I didn’t When I saw the sky I was like cool. Time to do an edit of this and see where things fall out. This is a single image HDR that I created using…

Cuddle Up

Cuddle Up

This is from Glen Echo Park. The booth really isn’t for anything. Behind it is a stage area but its all open and there is no reason to buy a ticket from what I have ever seen. I like night photography. This image isn’t that spectacular but I just like the contrast of colors in the image. You get the subtle reds with the hard blue neon. There wasn’t a whole lot I could do about the neon blowing out….

Spring Gazebo

Spring Gazebo

This was shot at Brookside Gardens. There are a few of these gazebos around the gardens but they are never used. If you are looking for a quiet place then I suggest using one as they are never busy. This was shot last year when I first got my Nikon D810. I like to play the game of randomly clicking on my photo library and see what comes up. I have so many images that I never processed that this…

5 From DC

5 From DC

This is the final of the series. This was taken in the middle of Virginia Avenue. I got a few strange looks from people walking by and cars as I setup my tripod in the middle of a traffic island. The Washington Monument is one of the tallest structures in Washington DC so it serves as a landmark if you are navigating. You can also see it from most vantage points that have a clear view. So if you are…

Four From DC

Four From DC

I realized a bit late I should have picked a different title but hindsight is 20/20 and I have been very busy with work. This is towards the end of my photographic journey in Washington DC and shockingly not on the National Mall. I was walking back to my car which was parked on Virginia Avenue. I have attempted to shoot the United States Institute of Peace building before but no luck. This time the light was hitting it right…
