Twin Falls

Twin Falls

I took this photo along the C&O Canal trail near Great Falls on the Maryland side of the falls. I honestly don’t remember a whole lot about this photo. There was lots of water flowing due to recent rains and the river and various creeks were flowing due to the excess water. This was a runoff from some stream that was being drained into a canal lock. I just liked the light in this which is why I took the image….

Masts As Tall As Buildings

Masts As Tall As Buildings

This image has driven me nuts since I shot it last year. There were multiple technical issues with it that I could not overcome. Throw in the weird angle and my obsession because I liked it made me work on it till I got it right. That and I was feeling masochistic. The image was taken at the Navy Pier in Chicago. I have no idea what the boat is called but I just liked the masts of the boat…

Architectural Travels – Part One

Architectural Travels – Part One

I rarely have time to do series of images. This is mainly due to the fact that editing takes considerable amount of time. With me having some time off I went ahead and completed a series I have had in mind for some time, all the architectural shots I have taken over the course the last year or so and publish them in cohesive sets. I broke up all the images into what I consider sets of similar characteristics. This…

The Power Of Water

The Power Of Water

This is some channel off the Potomac River at Great Falls on the Maryland side. I was standing on a bridge shooting down. It’s somewhere before the overlook on the falls themselves. I am fairly certain that the rock is granite. Then again, I am not a geologist and I’m too lazy to Google. The image reminds you how water can carve through rock over the eons. You never really consider it until you pay attention to how the world…

Warm Fall Reflections

Warm Fall Reflections

This is another from my recent visit to Brookside Gardens. It was part of my attempt to shoot the leaves turning but being an utter failure at it because I’m always too late in the season to shoot them because of my work travel. Brookside Gardens has a lot of little lakes and ponds. In fact, there is a rather large lake that will eventually appear when I get around to it. With the light being what it was it…

Boats At Bali Hai

Boats At Bali Hai

It’s Thanksgiving here in America. It’s normally a period of time that I am on travel using the holiday to get out and go do something. Last year I was in Thailand and this year I am not so why not revisit Thailand. I took these images all on my Canon S100 as I had it with me. Just took a wander around Bali Hai Pier with camera in hand and just took a bunch of snapshots. I wasn’t in photographer mode….

Buildings Of Baltimore

Buildings Of Baltimore

I could have titled this Oshiro 35mm F/2 lens review but that’s boring. Still, all the images were shot using the Oshiro 35mm F/2. I had purchased the lens because I needed a relatively fast 35mm lens for my Sony A7R. Since they don’t make E mount version I got the Nikon version and adapter for Sony E. With the lens in hand I set off to Baltimore on one of the hottest days of the year in August. I…

Tunnel Vision

Tunnel Vision

This is along the Riverwalk in Chicago. I was returning to my hotel and saw this tunnel lit up and I thought it would be a cool shot. I quickly setup my tripod and waited for some people to walk through. I got lucky with these two and fired several frames to make sure I got them where I wanted them. Their motion blur because of the exposure time give it a sense of movement. Usual edits but I did…

On To The Gulf

On To The Gulf

This is another random snap I took while I was in Thailand. I was walking along the beach just killing time and saw the trees framing the view and thought it would make a nice image. Since I had my Canon S100 with me I just grabbed it and fired off the shot. This is a common scene on the beaches of the Gulf of Thailand. Personally, never rent a jetski in Thailand because scams are so common they make…

Jungle Path

Jungle Path

I am in Chicago this week and I have been photographing a lot and have some pretty amazing shots. I did get asked to leave the amusement park I was shooting at near the Navy Pier because I did not have a permit but it’s been a really great city to photograph and I still have a few more days here! I am going to stick to Panama stuff this week and and do basic edits. This mainly has to…
