Neon Nights

Neon Nights

I admit that this one will not be to everyones tastes but I do periodically take pictures for myself.  I was walking in Baltimore and saw this lady flash out of the corner of my eye.  I had all of 5 seconds to get this shot framed in the neon on a point and shoot camera.  It was point and pray time that the image came out and I got lucky.  I just love how the neon silhouettes her and…

The Emperors Morning View

The Emperors Morning View

Well not really.  It was just a view out to the pool area at Caesars Palace Casino in Las Vegas.  It was my last day there and I just had the Canon ELPH 330HS on me so I walked out to the balcony area and snapped the picture.  Seems cruel that they put this type of view from the conference area of the hotel where you are working but can see out to what you are missing.

Night Moves – The Steeple

Night Moves – The Steeple

I saw this going home one night and I have shot the front of the church before but really liked the light coming from the front and illuminating the steeple from the back.  I have been watching Ming Thein’s Compact Camera Masterclass so I had the Canon Elph 330HS with me so I stopped and took this picture.  This was handheld, spot metered, and at ISO 800.  Yes, I did some editing in Lightroom and some Photoshop sharpening as well….

McCarren

McCarren

Flew home yesterday and had the trusty Canon ELPH 330HS on me (along with a selection of other cameras) but I like the ease of it instead of hauling out a bigger one from my bag.  While I took some Lightroom liberties these are straight out of the camera jpegs.  If you are willing to fiddle with some settings for your shot its a damn fine camera.

Departure and Arrival

Departure and Arrival

It seems I am on a plane at least once a month.  Sometimes by my own choice other times for work.  I used to be a nervous flyer after a couple of incidents involving storms and running out of fuel.  Then one day I didn’t care anymore because I realized that I had zero control over the outcome of the flight anyways so why bother.  I could ramble about statistics of flight versus other modes of travel but the reality…

Dulles Airport

Dulles Airport

My home airport and considering its all of 5 minutes from my house easy to get to.  This is the main terminal and you can see one of the towers in the background.  I have seen a shot like this in my head every time I have driven to the airport on official airport business (meaning the main road is backed up so I take the airport road), or when I fly in or out of it.  What I didn’t…

Fear of the Dark

Fear of the Dark

Tribute to Iron Maiden?  Slightly with the title. I admit this is boring to some extent but I have been trying for about 6 months to get this shot or one damn similar to it.  Parking on the bottom level of the building I always thought the lights looked cool as you slope up to the next level.  I have tried with 3 different cameras until I finally did it on a whim with my 5DMKII and it nailed it…

Boat on the Water

Boat on the Water

Apologies to Deep Purple and points if you get the reference. The day was dreary and rainy and I wanted a sunny picture.  I did a lot of “enhancing” and if I wanted to be slicker I could have masked the sky out but I’m too lazy for that and about 15 minutes is all I’m willing to spend on a picture.  I like it enough to share.  Nothing spectacular but after not having shot with the Canon 5DMKII for…
