Two From DC

Two From DC

This is the second from the DC series I am doing this week. This one is the Lincoln Memorial from the far side of the Reflecting Pool. I took this image after I had taken the Jefferson Memorial image. There were some stops in between the two images so the sun had shifted. The light was coming in from behind me to the left. That is why the building isn’t fully light but it was all about the light and the…

Surfacing

Surfacing

I am always a sucker for escalators coming up from Metro systems and I just happened to be in a place where I could take a shot. I took the Metro into Washington, DC to meet someone for brunch and I had my Nikon D810. So when I was riding up the Dupont Station escalator I reached into my bag and took the shot. The Sigma 24-105 has been temporarily welded to that camera so I knew I could easily…

Arena Stage

Arena Stage

I finally ventured out to shoot something significant in the freezing sub-arctic conditions that I currently find myself living in (it was like 40F or 4.5C but felt colder I swear). So now that I live all of 5 minutes walk from a subway stop I climbed aboard and went into Washington DC to shoot the Southwest Water Front. Little did I know that the subway was a mess from planned construction and that the entire water front was torn…

Snowy Day At The Whitehouse

Snowy Day At The Whitehouse

I took this when I was in DC for work. The office I had to go to is a couple blocks away from the Whitehouse so I figured I cut through the park and get some shots. Last time I was at the Whitehouse you could go all the way up to the iron gate. This time I was forced to stand across the street. I have no real idea why. DC is riddled with closed streets near government buildings….

Patriotic Sunset

Patriotic Sunset

This image was shot at the base of the Washington Monument. I was going to do a series but I didn’t feel that the rest of them fit because the light was all over the place and this image was toned towards the warmer side just to increase the visual sensation that a sunset brings. Having light shifting would lose the effect I was going for so another single image it is! Enjoy!  

Sunrise Over Washington DC

Sunrise Over Washington DC

Since I have to get up early for work which I find inhumane and cruel I get to see sights such as this sunrise. I snapped it as I stagger out into the living room area of my hotel room to make coffee to attempt to wakeup. The camera bag was on a table next to me so I grabbed the Sony RX100M3 and snapped away.I composited three images to make it. Hopefully I removed most of the noise out of…

Getting Historical

Getting Historical

These are about a month old when I shot all the macro stuff but I went through and did some editing.  The lion is my favorite with the color correction doing something totally unexpected.  I also like the statue with the US Capitol in the background.  While not to everyones tastes I think this week is more about what makes me as a photographer than anything else.

Steeple Chase

Steeple Chase

Sorry if you saw this for a second yesterday.  I hit publish instead of update. I had to venture into DC yesterday to drop off a PC at a satellite office and of course I had a camera with me, the Panasonic GX1 which I have really grown fond of lately after first not really liking the setup on it.  Slapping on the most excellent Leica 25mm 1.4 off I went into the city.  I saw this as I was leaving…

The Capitol

The Capitol

This was shot in a long time ago it feels like and it shows it.  No matter how much post processing I did I could not remove all the noise from the image and in this case, I can blame the gear.  I shot this on my first DSLR ever, the Canon XSi (sold in the great Canon Purge) which wasn’t a low light performer in the best of cases.  It didn’t help that I shot this at night without…
