Pachyderm

Pachyderm

I took this at a little place I refer to as Hell on Earth or Nong Nooch Gardens. I still hate the place and vow never to return. Still, I got an elephant photo and if you are wondering what a pachyderm is feel free to read on Wikipedia. Clearly, Wikipedia knows way more about the word than I do. For inquiring minds, I must tell you that elephants in large numbers rather smell. Mix that in with high heat…

Not For Hire

Not For Hire

I just realized I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not that I haven’t been shooting, just for private clients so the editing time goes to them sadly. I am trying to get a comprehensive set from Cambodia and started the curation and early edits of the street photos. I am also actively planning my next trip to Cambodia which will include a few other spots in the country. It just seems, that every time I sit in front of the…

Barnacle Covered

Barnacle Covered

I have no idea what these things are. I know they are used for boats but beyond that can’t begin to guess. I just liked the way they looked all barnacle covered and just left to rust away in the Thai climate. When I took this photo I knew it was going to be in black and white. It’s all about the texture and tones and it creates a mood around the image. So I did my usual workflow then…

Photos In The Rain

Photos In The Rain

Shot this while I was out shooting in Fort Myers. The rain storm had passed but it was still raining when I saw these two ladies walk into the frame. When I took this photo I was hiding under a bridge out of the rain to see if it was a quick storm or if it was going to turn into a steady rain. I put on my 55-200 lens which for a budget lens is extremely sharp and well…

Required Viewing

Required Viewing

This was shot on the Portland River Walk along with the previous image from here. If I was to be honest I would tell you I screwed up the name and this one was to be titled the sweet spot. Oh well. I haven’t worked in black and white lately and its been fun to do a few images. For images like this it’s just more interesting when you do a black and white because it then becomes about textures…

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…

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…

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….

Forlorn On The Floodplains

Forlorn On The Floodplains

I took this photo recently along the C&O Canal. I stopped at a lock gate that I used to drive past everyday when I drove to work. The day was grey and nasty but I had my hiking boots on and my Sony RX10 with me so I figured why not take a quick hike and see what there is to see. I wandered down off the path and hit the back trails where the the more adventurous hikers and…

The Distant Lighthouse

The Distant Lighthouse

It seems that with me moving my photo library to it’s new drive I found more images to edit. In fact, I shockingly did a series for later this week. Plus it’s now cold and I miss Thailand where all these images are from. I shot this from the Bali Hai pier using my Canon S100. I have shot the lighthouse before but much closer not from this angle. I was just standing there and I thought it looked cool with…
