Travels and not writing…

Travels and not writing…

It’s been over a year since my last post. Crazy to think of that much time between appearances, but I’ve been rather busy and obviously this blog hasn’t been at the top of my list of priorities. Jumping back in, I do believe the last location I discussed was Grindelwald, Switzerland. Absolutely inspiring place! Since...
Europe So Far…

Europe So Far…

 Hello again, been a while! We’ve been living in Germany now since the end of March and have been in our home since the end of May. That’s two months living out of suitcases and almost two months setting up our house…throw in a personal transition from Aperture to Light Room for photo management and...
Charleston, SC

Charleston, SC

Our last stop before departing the States for Europe was Atlanta to see my brother Brian and his wife Meg, my aunt Sue and a gaggle of friends…sadly, not everyone we would have liked to see, but we caught quite a few folks. About halfway through, Brian and Meg took Toni and me to Charleston,...
Colorado…

Colorado…

Before I go full on with our Germany move and the first couple of weeks, it occurs to me that I never posted from an old favorite and new favorite location: Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado and Charleston, South Carolina. This post will focus on RMNP and Snowmass with Charleston to follow soon. I make...
In Germany at Last

In Germany at Last

So here we are, finally in Germany, we have a house lined up, we have a car and I’ve been doing a lot of playing with my iPhone! I’ve actually been shooting much more with my iPhone than I have been with my 5D rig. Biggest reason? Size. Second? Weight. It’s totally liberating to have...
D.C. Wanderings

D.C. Wanderings

So I pretty much forgot that I have the WordPress app on my phone and now that I actually have an iPhone, I’m no longer constrained to my computer for blogging with photos! So this is a first and we’ll see how it goes. I’m not really sure how things will work as far as...
Xi'an and Beijing

Xi’an and Beijing

When Toni and I decided that we were going to take one last trip outside of Japan before we moved, we had a few choices. The top of the list consisted of New Zealand, Vietnam and China. In the end, we decided on China because we wanted to see what is one of the most...
Sunrise from NAF Atsugi

Sunrise from NAF Atsugi

Saw a lovely sight this morning looking across the flight line at NAF Atsugi and as luck would have it, I had my brand spanking new 70-200mm 2.8L and 1.4x III! I shot this at 280mm and I think f9, then adjusted the contrast in Aperture to match what I saw. One really cool thing...
Return From China

Return From China

We’re back from a week long trip in China and I really gotta say, it’s not what I expected. Awesome, just unexpected. We visited Xi’an and Beijing, in that order, and had guided tours arranged through a local travel agency here. Having only a week (5 days really when travel is factored in), we tried...
Oops…

Oops…

Wow, I really hadn’t realized that it had been so long since my last post. No excuses for it, just an oops moment. So I’ve been struggling with the Lion upgrade and Aperture along with the legions of others using older hardware. I did finally stumble onto a solution that has reverted my machine to...
The Sanctuary of Truth

The Sanctuary of Truth

Having just returned from Pattaya, Thailand, I was going through my photos and found two things: one, that I didn’t take all that many pictures of Pattaya itself (at least not with my camera, my wife’s has some I think), and two, that almost all of the shots I liked were from one place: the...
Deep Cuts pt. 2

Deep Cuts pt. 2

This one goes back quite a ways to my times shooting for the Marietta Daily Journal in scenic Marietta, GA. This was my first ever photo job (the paper, not the concert) and I learned by being thrown into the deep end.  It was about a year into working there (six months at the smaller...
