Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

When I set out to take photos, I often think first about which cameras I am going to take with me.  When the answer includes my Canon 50D, the next question is which lens to bring. For my trip to the Serengeti, the answer included my 70-200mm lens, which broadly speaking, was chosen to help me... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

The Colosseum in Rome is beautiful.  We walked through it, admiring it, amazed at how well it has weathered the years considering how long it has been a part of the landscape.  But it was a bit tough to photograph.  Of the photos I have edited so far, my favorite view is one that I...

Compare and Contrast

A few weeks ago my point and shoot camera returned home, having been lent out for a few months. I have been spending time getting re-aquainted with it, specifically with the menu options.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental

Sometimes it's fun to experiment, try something new.  I gave a few tools in Photoshop a spin and here is the result: Not everything I did to get this final result was new to me, but because certain steps were, this photo took some time to produce. A typical learning curve with any thing that... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

Last week I showed you photos taken at the top of St. Peter's Basilica from the outside viewing area.  This week I'll show you a few details of the interior of the dome. These are shots I took on the walk up, just a few details from a place that is a grand and beautiful. I'm a... Continue Reading →
