A brand new HDR processed from images in my archive. Originally shot in 2014 from Utrecht, Netherlands. Peak blue hour and the historic Dom Tower.
Back in 2014, when I was in the Netherlands for a business trip, I visited Utrecht, twice. Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. The Dom Tower, built in the 14th century is the tal…

A portrait from the downtown ROT Rally that I created last year. A pre-parade portrait and some experimentation with backlighting and overexposure.
I’ve been going to the downtown ROT Rally (The Republic of Texas Biker Rally) event for a number of years, usually to shoot the Biker Parade. But it’s also a wonderful event for street …

Why do some countries drive on the left and others on the right? An interesting history lesson in today's blog post. Not to mention, a moody black and white, with leading lines and motion blur, Yay.
More countries drive on the left side than I imagined. 55 countries, according the U.N., listed on this Wikipedia page. Of course, I knew the U.K. and Australia drove on the left as does India and …

In addition to my classic film cameras, I've started to collect noteworthy digital cameras too. Meet the Olympus D-200L, the first digital camera from Olympus.
The D-200L is the first consumer digital camera from Olympus. It was announced on September 5, 1996. Information from back then is a little sketchy. DPReview lists the D-200L and the D-300L as the …

A fun snapshot on Waikiki Beach, a young boogie boarder with the iconic Diamond Head mountain in the background. Shot with the Olympus TG-2 water proof camera.
It’s amazing how some small kids expertly ride the boogie board, even on the tiniest of waves. I tried a few times, years ago, and was never able to generate enough speed to catch the waves. …

A moody blue silhouette from paradise. The catamarans of Waikiki Beach return home.
Another wonderful evening in paradise. I noticed the catamarans of Waikiki Beach were heading back after their last excursion of the day. I shot with a slow shutter speed to capture motion blur but…

An atypical view of a New York City subway train, shot back in 2011. This train line has been updated with a new station located in a new $20 billion mega-development.
Back when I lived in New York City, the Number 7 train was my most used subway line. It ran from Times Square in Manhattan to Main Street, Flushing, in Queens. I just discovered that the Number 7 l…

Lucky is still nice enough to pose for my various camera tests. A photographer's best friend. A different angle this time, in profile and meticulously aligned for a graphic look.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photo of Lucky, my trusty dog and model. He is the only one that, begrudgingly, lets me shoot him, when I test cameras. And, I do have a lot of cam…

The wonderful and iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Shot several years ago with lower-end gear. Goes to show that you can make great images with modest gear. Click to see what I used.
Several years ago, I made my first trip out to Battery Crosby on the north-western shore of San Francisco. The park like area, with the rocky cliffs, hiking trails, the beach and the roar of the Pa…

A must see exhibit at the Texas State History Museum​. How Hitler and the Nazi's used propaganda, imagery, stories and the latest technologies to influence the German people.
Yesterday was Museum Day in Austin. I was at the University of Texas testing cameras and dropping in on the Elliott Erwitt exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center. On a lark, I did the short walk to the…

Story
Introduction
I am an Austin, Texas based photographer mainly taking images of Urban Landscapes. What is an Urban Landscape? I’m not sure if its an official term but I consider it landscape photography with images of man-made stuff in them. It could include mostly nature photographs with bridges or it can include downtown skylines and architecture. I shoot in several different styles but my focus tends to be the everyday things around us. I have images of the cities that I visit, including the architecture and street life. I have bits of nature and how it blends with the ever expanding man-made world. I also include events and performances that that seems neat and interesting that enrich our busy and complex lives.
