Sun Rising at a Special Place

One from the Grand Canyon trip in 2016.  I guess I didn’t like it last year.  I like it now.

Thanks for Lunch

I was in Fort Myers when I came across this woman feeding a real cute bird.  I shot this with my Leica D-Lux Type 109.  My ISO was 1600 because it was a cloudy and rainy day at the beach.  Shot at f/16 at 1/1600 sec at 10.9mm.

Cheer, Cheer…the Band is Here

The Notre Dame Marching Band in San Antonio, Texas.  This photo was taken during the pregame celebration just outside the Alamodome in November 2016.  Shot with an ISO of 1600 at F/13 1/500 sec.  Shot with the Leica D-Lux Type 109 15.9mm.

A Strange Look at the Alamo

L1020856.jpgWhen shooting street photos, I usually prefer black and white.  However, there are times when the color just needs to be shown.  Such is the case here in “A Strange Look at the Alamo”.  The colors were just too beautiful to leave out.  This was shot at Iso 200 F/11 at 1/200 sec.  I was using my Leica D-Lux Type 109 at approximately 12.1 mm.  The name of the photo is a reference to the look of the police officer staring in my direction.

If You Don’t Ask, You’ll Never Know

Washington Square Park is my favorite place to capture interesting moments.  You often find people making art, performing or just hanging around.  So many interesting people in New York City…so many!  It was a beautiful day today, so I took out my Lecia D-Lux Type 109 and hit the streets.  This was the only shot I liked today.  35mm at F/11 at 1/200 SEC.  ISO was set on auto (320).  I like capturing artistic people caught up in their work.  This guy clearly was focused.

Perched Above the Water

I hadn’t taken my camera out for a walk in a long while.  I’ve got to be better about getting out and about.  On this day, I took my Lecia D-Lux Type 109.  It’s currently my favorite walk around camera.  I found this interesting lady sitting on the fountain in Washington Square Park.  I took this shot right before she spotted my lurking near her.  It’s now one of my favorites.

Come Fly With Me

I was down the shore with family and we decided to fly a kite.  Needless to say, the children with us didn’t like us adults playing with a toy, so they took it from us.  The result is this photo taken while laying on my back in the sand.  Perspective can always make a photograph beautiful and interesting.  Shot with my Leica D-Lux Type 109.

Ana and the Sunset

Somewhere near Naples, we watched the sunset.  I captured this moment with my friend on the beach.  Hundreds of awful photos that evening and this one gem.

Lost in Thought

My dear friend had suffered a tremendous loss.  I caught him staring out at the ocean, it’s clear his heart is broken.  Photography should capture “moments”.  This one did, albeit a sad and tragic moment.
