Pool Deck at the Taj Mumbai
0 comments / 0 votes

The Taj Mahal Palace hotel sits prominently on the Mumbai waterfront. This decidedly Imperial and stately hotel sits overlooking the Gateway of India, also where the last British troops left the country signaling India’s independence. The hotel has been in the news for both famous stays (just about any vising head of state in the […]

This post is a special one. A few years ago Alan Taylor, curator of The Atlantic’s fantastic “In Focus” photo blog, did a gallery of photos of the week leading up to 9/11/2001. The full gallery is here and it’s worth a look: 9/11 – The Week Before At the bottom of Talyor’s post you will see some pictures […]

Today marks the 77th birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge. While I have a few favorite pictures of the bridge itself (see the post on where to take the best shots here), I want to use this post to talk about where the bridge was really born: Bethlehem, PA.  Bethlehem Steel provided the steel for […]

My brother and I started taking/processing HDR photography in 2008. At that time the editing technology was in its infancy, and digital DSLRs were only just starting to catch on. One of our initial inspirations was the (really really talented) Trey Ratcliff of StuckInCustoms.com – amazing photographs and even more amazing travel destinations. Now that […]

Currently… somewhere thousands of miles off the south west coast of Australia, is the crashed/missing/magically vanished Malaysia Air flight 370. Now that the search area is somewhat more narrowed down, the hunt for the “black box” flight recorders is on. Also, somewhere off the SW coast of Australia is the ADV Ocean Shield…. looking for […]

You have already seen this image. You, and lots of other people. It is estimated that this is the most viewed photograph ever taken. Further, I would guess that in some places, this is the most recognizable image – computers with windows can be much more common in some areas than knowledge any of the […]

Car: Ferrari 512M
0 comments / 0 votes

In 1970-71 Ferrari wanted a new GT car to take advantage of updated FIA racing rules governing engine displacement. Ferrari had been racing the 312 in LeMans and other races, but with Porsche’s new 917 it was out gunned. While the 917 used a 4.5L to start, Ferrari designed a brand new 5L V12 for […]

Right after I purchased the D800 I needed the other part of the package: a lens.  After much deliberation, research, reading, and hemming and hawing, I finally decided on the 24-120 f4 as a lens. Selecting a lens is about the only thing more complex than picking a camera body. There are tomes of articles […]

During the ridiculously cold weather over the last few weeks, Niagara falls has been covered a HUGE amount of ice. While the falls never completely freeze, the spray and famous mist generates a lot extra of ice and snow. While it is misleadingly titled (forgive them, they are British), the Daily Mail has a post […]

Yesterday Buzzfeed.com posted a less than enlightening article: “26 Remarkable Places for Solo Travel.” (Article here) While the places listed might be, the only thing that made the article itself remarkable, was how embarrassingly bad it was. Now I’m not saying that the author should be embarrassed to put her name to it (maybe…), I’m […]

May of 2009 was my first trip to Turkey. I have since been back and I am still amazed by this country. In ’09 I spent two weeks traveling from the capitol, Ankara, to Cappadoica, and finally to Istanbul with a group of college friends. In the middle of the country sits the region of […]

While not my favorite shot of the amazing photography opportunity that is the Golden Gate Bridge, I want to use this to talk about the best locations for shooting this landmark. Doing some homework before you head out to take pictures is just as important as the equipment, shooting skill, and post processing. As with […]

Breakfast of Champions! About 45 minutes north of Brussels, Belgium, is the country’s second most populous city of Antwerp. Antwerp does have an interesting history – its name comes from a myth about a giant, and it was briefly ruled by the Spanish – interesting place, but I’m here to talk about the food! Similar […]
