  Pearl Harbor.  John F. Kennedy Assassination.  You may or not remember where you were on those tragic days depending upon your age. 9/11/2001:  You surely remember where you were 10 years ago today when those cowardly muslim terrorists crashed airplanes into these two most beautiful of buildings massacring 3,000 people. I shot this image […]

  Barcelona, Spain: March 2013 Sometimes when I am taking pictures of strangers in street photography mode I get a really nice reaction like from this woman who smiled and flashed me the peace sign.  I was pretty much right in her grille when she flashed her pearly whites and gave me a fun look. […]

Barcelona, Spain: March 2013 I was walking through the Ciutat Vella section of Barcelona late at night, this is where all the cool bars are, and noticed this woman looking right at me, as if to say don’t take my picture – alas, i could not help but press my shutter button.

Paris, France Always a romantic scene, the carousel, in Paris.  I am reminded of my time in London in the late 80’s, spring of ’88 to be exact, of friend Sam Gaidemak’s song Carousel the lyrics starting with “horses have painted faces, on the carousel….” which he wrote and performed with my friend Lauren who […]

The Hamptons: Full Moon Shot with my 5DMKII and 600mm lens, the evening was supremely clear.  I have been trying for some time to get a really nice image of the moon in full regalia.  I think I may finally have done it.

New York City I shot this image one evening at a construction site on a photowalk earlier in the year.  I was on the corner of 23rd Street & 5th Avenue.  The flag was alighted by a spotlight offset by the beautiful blue night and skyscraper behind her.  Notice that the image is shot through […]

London, Spring 2011 In looking back at some of my images while traveling in Europe last year, I came across this 9 exposure HDR shot I took when I first started playing with HDR as a format…Having lived in London, albeit a while ago, and spending a lot of time there over the years, I […]

Munich, Germany: BMW Museum This is the famed 1939 BMW Mille Miglia Bugelfalte-Roadster.  One of the only factory built cars to run in the famed race.  Finally, a BMW to compete with the likes of Alfa Romeo.  I own one Alfa (’73 Spider) and three BWM’s (’71 2002, ’72 3.0 CSi, ’08 E60 M5).  All […]

Paris, France (Montmartre): This past summer I had the chance to spend a few days in Paris on my way to Prague, after a few days in Koln/Cologne, Germany.  I figured I’d catch some summer sun in the City of Lights and was not disappointed.  I really stopped in to shoot the Tour de France […]

Koln (Cologne), Germany: 2011 I spent much time last year in Koln, Germany for business.  A few things really stand out for me from the many visits and getting to know this beautiful city more than just passing through to see the famed Kolner Dom, the Dom Catherdral.  The beer.  The wurst.  The wienerschnitzel.  The […]

Paris: Summer 2011 I am inspired to post my first real portrait image after a couple of posts earlier today on g+.  Paulissa Kipp was writing asking how a photographer finds his or her voice.  I waxed philosophical as to how I was able to come up with a way to classify or categorize what […]

Rome, Italy You know my mantra, ‘Look Up”.  In this instance, I was looking down.  And I really loved what I saw, and where I was standing.  So much history in Rome.  No wonder it is called the Eternal City.  I can’t help but think which of the famed Emperors walked in this place, or, […]

GCT: NYC This 9 exposure HDR image with my 15mm fish is of the south exit to 42nd Street & Park Avenue.  I was on a photo shoot here with some great photographers when I happened the exit at a time when I could get 9 brackets fired off without anyone walking into the frame. […]

Paris, France I spent the day traveling around Paris on Saturday prior to the finish of the Tour de France the third week of July, 2011.  I had just come back from Montmartre where I extensively shot the Sacre Coeur, of which I will post some images soon, on the most glorious of summer days […]

New York City This single exposure turned out to be ‘right place right time’.  I was on an early morning photowalk with a new photography friend, now friend, Mark Garbowski.  Many of you know Mark from his blog, Too Much Glass and various and recent G+ photowalks.  We met through an email introduction as I […]

New York City, 11th Avenue, mid-40’s looking down to 42nd Street where the two skyscraper/apartment building are situated.  I took this on a first time shoot with my new friend and city photographer, Mark Garbowski.  Despite his website/blog title, one can never have ‘Too Much Glass’.  I found Mark surfing the web looking at images […]

For the past week I have been on my East Berlin UrbEx kick, finally getting to process and post images from my epic trip to Germany to shoot with no less than some of the world’s best UrbEx photographers in Jacques Gude, Luis dos Santos, Alex Friedrichstrasse, all arranged by my dear friend Bob Lussier. […]

East Berlin, Germany: Beelitz Sanatorium This is a 9 exposure HDR image of a room on the 5th floor of the sanatorium looking into the hall and another room through a crumbled wall.  To my left and rear is a completely open exterior wall showing nothing by the outside of the facility into the woods […]

Another 9 exposure HDR image of one of the staircases at the abandoned structure of the Beelitz Sanatorium on my epic day shooting in UrbEx nirvana with Jacques Gude, Luis dos Santos, Steve Coppenbarger and Alex (3passa) Friedrichstrasse. At every turn, up or down every staircase, across every hall, was extreme sensory overload as there […]

An UrbEx photographers dream.  Literally and figuratively.  Largely abandoned now, Beelitz is another cathedral to UrbEx photography.  Perhaps the comparison should be that Beelitz is to UrbEx shooting as the Vatican is to Catholicism; that The Wall is to Judaism; that Mecca is to Islam.  You get the point.  Completely religion for photographers. I shot […]

My good friend Bob Lussier had introduced me to a good photog friend, Jacques Gude ahead of a trip I was taking this summer to Germany.  I was going to Dusseldorf for 3 days, told Bob, and he said, ‘man, too bad you can’t get to Berlin to meet a great friend of mine, Jacques, […]

This is the second HDR image, in my genesis of processing, that think is good enough to publish to my website.  I was in Prague this summer with my girl Noreen.  We decided to make a take a long weekend in Europe wrapped around one of my business trips.  Neither of us had previously been […]

Happy Friday, and now for today’s history lesson. January 22nd, 1506,(who writes that stuff down) is the official date of birth of the Pontifical Swiss Guard (Schweizergarde), because on that day, towards the evening, a group of one hundred and fifty Swiss soldiers commanded by Captain Kasparvon Silenen, of Canton Uri, passed through the Porta […]

Welcome back and happy Monday kids.  You will recognize this image from  my home page so I thought I should share it with you so you know the back-story and why I have it posted on my home page slideshow. The infamous catwalks.  I was shooting here earlier in the year with Steve Beal (www.stevebeal.com), […]
