Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweet

Just imagine, a sunny day in February in Paris, pretty sweet, particularly if you consider the lousy weather they have had there lately. But there I was, on a beautiful day: This color version is fairly close to the scene as shot.  I have cropped it a bit. When I was editing I was interested... Continue Reading →


Weekly Photo Challenge: Beloved

There is a story behind every photograph: In this case, it is a story of a young zebra napping near its mother: Then a car starts, and nap time is over: For this story, I have left the smaller images of the zebra composing himself in their original as-shot state. The two larger images I... 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...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene

A recent trip to Rome gave me the opportunity to visit Montecassino Abbey. That's it up on the hill. The Abbey was founded by St. Benedict and is beautiful with stunning views.  This image was taken at the nearby Polish War Cemetery.

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: Rounded

I climbed to the top of St. Peter's Basilica this week and looking down couldn't help but noticing how rounded St. Peter's Square looks: I went in the early morning.  They officially open at 8, but were letting people in before that, so I was at the top just a few minutes after 8.  It...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow

In photography, there is often a lot said about the golden hour, including the fact that there are two of them. Like a lot of the rules of photography, you get some great results by paying attention, it is a fabulous time for natural light to infuse your photography. Very nice, but my life often...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Sometimes with a good base in reality you can scale something up in your imagination: This is Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. Look somewhat familiar? If you have read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown or seen the movie that could be why, this chapel gets a feature in both. The chapel is beautiful, full... Continue Reading →
