The Mechanic's Spiral
The Mechanics Institute Library, San Francisco, USA
On my site: https://goo.gl/1kLYIt

This is the staircase in the Mechanic's Institute Library in the SOMA (South of Market Area) of San Francisco. I had found it using the stuck on earth app and a curated list from Thomas Hawk of places to see in the city. My fellow master in the Arcanum +Wes Hardaker and my wife Danielle, and I all went to check it out. Thankfully when we arrived the doorman was away from his post, which gave us the chance to waltz right in and have a look around. We climbed up to the top and took some pictures from a bunch of different angles and levels, until eventually we were spotted by the doorman himself! What followed was the most gentle and polite scolding I have ever received haha. He was very kind and just made sure that 1) we hadn't taken any pictures of people, and 2) that we knew this was a private building - that second part accompanied by the knowing look he gave us made it clear that it would be a good time to head down the stairs and towards the door. Anyway before moving on a took a last couple frames from the bottom looking up (including this one here) and several of them turned out to be my favorites. I am glad that I risked overstaying my not-so-welcome to get those last few shots.

Small Things Standing
Bash Bish Falls, Mt Washington, MA, USA
On My Site: https://goo.gl/RsnxDR

One of my photographer friends from +The Arcanum+Shari Miller, takes incredible photos of small and ordinary things that she finds. Many of the things she takes beautiful photos of are things that I would normally step on haha - if you haven't already checked out her work you definitely should go do that now!! Anyway with this shot, feeling inspired by Shari Kerr Miller, I tried my hand at noticing and shooting a small thing standing, I hope you like it!

Iconic San Francisco
Battery Spencer, San Francisco, USA
On my site: https://goo.gl/e9NZuy

In my recent trip (Sept 2015) to San Francisco for the Trey USA Photowalk and an Arcanum Masters get together I had to stop in at Battery Spencer to try my hand at the iconic view of the golden gate bridge. Everyone gets the same shot from this spot, so I tried to mix it up a little and zoom in. Let me know what you think!

Remarkable accomplishment - remarkable photographer - remarkable guy! Cheers +Trey Ratcliff
Thanks for the 100 Billion Views here on G+! Y'all have been just incredible, and I really appreciate it.

Here's a photo I just took at sunset in the amazing White Sands of New Mexico. Just absolutely incredible there... never seen anything like this landscape... it was soft and fluffy, like warm snow that never melts.  Now we're getting ready for the big Phoenix photo walk this evening.  It's gonna be another hot one... I'll bring an extra shirt I think!

Silk Mill Tags
Lonaconing Silk Mill, Lonaconing, MD - USA

This shot is from the Lonaconing Silk Mill which is in Maryland. The Mill has been abandoned since the summer of 1957 and it has remained largely untouched for the last 58 years and counting. The mill is basically a 48,000 sq. ft. time capsule and on each of its 3 floor there is treasure after treasure to take pictures of!!

12th Ave Bridge Seattle
Jose Rizal Bridge, Seattle, WA, USA

I found this spot thanks to the awesome app from Trey Ratcliff "Stuck on Earth." Basically this Bridge on 12th Ave called The Jose Rizal Bridge goes up over the top of all the highways that run in and out of the city creating all of these wonderful pathways of light that point to the skyline.  This was not the best time or the best night to try and take this shot but it was the only chance I would get so I made the best of it (for example there was very little traffic and I had to use a bunch of shots to get the headlight trails correct in the picture)  Anyway it is a beautiful spot to just stand and take in all the lights and sound and I hope this picture lets you in a bit on that experience!
