Panamanian Skyline

Panamanian Skyline

I took this in Panama City, Panama a few years back. I thought it was a great idea to lug around a Nikon D810. I quickly learned that it was a crap idea and learned to carry much lighter cameras unless I needed the big ass, Nikon, for something. Hell, lately I have been using my Sony RX100III. Why? Because it’s light and happily fits in my cup holder. That’s how I roll these days. Enjoy. Advertisements

Architectural Travels – Part 4

Architectural Travels – Part 4

Final installment on the Architectural Travels. These are all from Panama City, Panama as it turns out. Didn’t plan it that way but it is how it worked out. All these images except for one were shot on my Nikon D810. The one that wasn’t was shot on my Sony RX100III. When I went to edit these some just felt better in monochrome so I did the conversion using Tonality. I have come to prefer that over Silver Efex because you…

At Anchor

At Anchor

This is from Panama City, Panama. Not exactly sure where I was except along the water. I walked from my hotel down to the waterfront that day and just kept walking until I hit Casco Viejo. In Panama City there are tons of marinas. Some are private and some are public. I didn’t explore them that close as I was just walking along the trail with no particular destination in mind other than towards Casco Viejo. I liked this this…

Architectural Travels – Part 2

Architectural Travels – Part 2

I indicated in part 1 of this series that I was going to go through and clear out all my architectural photos I have taken over my travels. I return with part 2 which I am calling reflections. These images were taken in Panama City, Panama and Chicago. There are no Thailand shots simply because where I am in Thailand doesn’t do large glass buildings. They are in Bangkok if you are interested but I’m not biggest fan of the…

Tower Above Casco Viejo

Tower Above Casco Viejo

This is one of the never before published images from Panama City, Panama when I was there last year. The tower which is the most prominent feature in the image is the Iglesia San Francisco De Asis. If you are Spanished challenged it’s the Church of Saint Francis of Asis. Who it should be pointed out was never a priest or monk. Just for historical reference. I liked how the tower stands above everything else in the image. Still there is…

Ominous Clouds

Ominous Clouds

This was a typical view for me in Panama City when I was shooting there. Nothing but storm clouds rolling in over the city. Coming in from the ocean and then just hanging there over the city. I debated on doing this one in monochrome but it works as color as you get a bit more separation of the city and a better layered effect creating distinct areas in the image. I masked in bits here and there to just…

Martian Shores

Martian Shores

This isn’t really Mars since there is no water on Mars and I don’t know of anyone yet who has managed to go there. Instead this is from Panama City, Panama shot off the fort side of Casco Viejo. When I went to edit this it felt better in monochrome. So I went to move it into Tonality CK and the conversion left the red rocks looking just dark so to remedy that I went into the hut/saturation slider. I…

Rooftop Viewing

Rooftop Viewing

I shot this from the top of my hotel while I was in Panama City, Panama. I just set the tripod up as high as I could and pointed the camera in the general direction I wanted. The one thing I do not like about the Nikon D810 is the fact it doesn’t have a flip screen. This makes some angles a pain to get because you can’t see the screen. The Sony A7R has the D810 for landscapes. It’s…

Follow The Shore

Follow The Shore

When this image goes live I believe I will be in the air heading from South Korea heading to Thailand. Nothing says fun like a 20 hour flight to get to a place. The simple 4 hours to Panama was nothing but a short hop. I am not sure what part of Panama City , Panama the buildings are in. I was on the waterfront walkway heading towards Casco Viejo and I shot this. Editing for this is again simple…

Casco Viejo Shores

Casco Viejo Shores

I shot this from the old fort side of Casco Viejo. What seemed to be typical for my time there the clouds had gathered for the usual rain shower to come in the afternoon. You can see a little bit of the real Casco Viejo and not the spruced up touristy interior that is usually sold. I like the place because it’s a funky mix of old and new. Panama is really trying to sell it as a tourist destination…
