"Time Past"

I always loved old spanish architecture.  Although this is a simple scene, I really like the arched wooden doors, stucco walls and of course the wagon.

UPDATE:  This photo was selected by +Jarek Klimek as one of the top photos on 27 Jan.  I am definitely honored.  Please check out the other photos selected for the day and be sure to check the website Photoextract" for great photos everyday

"Stairway to Heaven"

I am always drawn to staircases :)  It amazes me when people don't look up or even down a stair case to see the view. I could have spent all day taking photos of this staircase but "luckily" I was limited on how long I could spend there :)

"Winter Lighthouse"

Who else has this problem. You take lots of photos but never have time to look at them?  Seems like I take plenty of photos only to transfer them to my computer, back up and then forget about them because I have more photos to backup :)   Well, at least this one is not that old... yet

"Looking Up"

The problem with taking photos of interesting architecture is there are sometimes too many angles and perspectives to choose from. This photo represents one point of view but the building actually offered many different views and each unique, different yet strong. Maybe I will post more photos of this building in the future.

Enjoy the view! :)

"Crossing the Abyss" 

Great architecture = great photos.... The modern architecture  combined with the person crossing the "abyss" really make this image.

This was taken from a parking garage and was a nice angle to take some photos of a station.  I will have to remember this location in the future :)

"Old Reflected"

I am always drawn to reflections especially old architecture.  The reflection almost looks like your looking through the window instead of an image being reflected back.

"Chicago"

Street capture of the iconic Chicago Theatre. I wanted to include the entrance to the subway to split the scene and add depth. Some tone mapping was applied to create the more dramatic look. Enjoy :)

Taken at sunset at the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC.  Sometimes, you just let the camera do the work when mother nature provides such a great view :)

"On Reflection..."

Taken with a long exposure with a variable ND filter.  A simple yet very relaxing scene.

"Arched Skyward"

The arch in St Louis is one of  those structures where you can spend all day taking photos of it from different angles. I do have a few with a jet passing by which is interesting as well.

Easy guess as to what skyline is shown in the shadows :)   For building architecture, two cities stand out: NYC and Chicago!

"The Falls"

I always love to shoot straight into the sun. In the right circumstances, the images can come out very dynamic. The falls are lit just about right with the silhouette of the buildings in the background.

For those of you who are looking at selling your photos without having to create your own website and dealing with printing etc. One option is Fine Art America.  What I really like about them is you don't have to try and fit your prints to a certain print/mat size.  And, the customer can choose their color of mats, frames, etc without any interaction from you.    http://fineartamerica.com/

For those interested in heading down to DC for a Photo Walk

St. Patrick's Day DC Photo Walk!

Okay kids... brace yourself. I know it's two months away, but it will give you plenty of time to plan accordingly and to spread the word. +Drink and Click™ D.C. will be hosting the St. Patrick's Day DC Photo Walk! 

There isn't much available as far as what is going on that weekend in DC yet, so I'm going to hold off on picking a starting place until some local events get published. So... stay tuned!

I have been looking at getting a different travel tripod because mine is just to big and heavy. I saw a review for this Fotopro tripod which can be used as a larger tripod, smaller version and even a mono pod. What do you think about this one or what do you use. Besides adequate support for my camera, I really need a light travel tripod

"Looking Back"

I always like reflections and architecture. So, I found the opportunity to mix both :)  The clock tower shown reflected in the lens/mirrors is behind me but I was able to get the clock face in the refection. I like how it seems like your are looking forward with glasses, like it is a magnifying glass :)

The blue surf board really stood out to me and it was the only real color in the photograph. So, I thought the image would look better in b/w but kept the color of the board.

"The Night was a Blur"

Taken at a local fair. I like the effect of long exposures at places like this. Love the vibrancy of the colors.

"Old Bike"

Walking around Europe there are always a lot of bicycles but many are older. Appropriately, I captured this "old" bike in an "old" European town. I purposely waited for the person to walk into the background of this image.

Enjoy...

"Game of Thrones"

Hmm...could be modern art?  This brings window shopping to a whole new perspective.  Taken during a stroll in small town America. So, come on in and have a "seat" :)

For some reason, I don't think this photo will meet the standards for +Jarek Klimek's top photo of the day lol

"Fired Up"

Some local fireworks tonight.  A preview for the 4th of July.

Almost did not capture any fireworks because I did not know there wasn't a memory card in my camera. Luckily, I realized it before it was too late. There were some great shots that I thought were captured LOL :)

"Underground" 

I liked the different geometrical shapes and lighting at this underground station. It was one of those scenes that immedicately captured my eye. I was lucky to take a few photos without any crowds.

A little bit of nature during the summer months. Who can resist taking photos of butterflies? Obviously, not me :)

"Guiding Light"

This lighthouse was fascinating but not just because of the lighthouse itself. There were so many different views, angles and perspectives which made composing this image a lot of fun.  I made sure to time the photo with the lighthouse strobe flashing brightly while the sun was setting behind me.

Enjoy and feel free to share.

"Old Man Walking"

I was taking photos of this building when an old man walked into my shot.  So, I kept on shooting and for once I was very happy that someone walked into my composition :)  The lighting was great because the sun was setting and was being reflected back from a window in another building. He walked right into the reflected light which provide the perfect light to shine on him. I don't think I could have duplicated this light with a reflector or artificial lighting.

Enjoy and feel free to share.

"Super Moon Silhouette"

Instead of the normal capture of the recent super moon, I shot this through some tree branches. I like the "spotlight" look of the image. I was lucky there was no wind when I shot this image. Soon after, the wind picked up and I could not capture the same effect without a lot of movement and blur.

"Smok'n"

Something a little different. I like that this image is almost a b/w except for the red taillights and wheels. The smoke seems to attach itself to the contours of the car.

"Screaming Eagle"

A close up of a Bald Eagle as it opens its mouth to screech. I like how the fall colors of the trees in the background add some warmth to the composition.
