A Walk by a Lake

Spent a good chunk of one afternoon by a lake.  There was nothing particularly special about this lake except for the birds idling, beautiful light, and of course lots of photo opportunities.

Christmas Day Walk in Washington DC

Somehow, every time I come to DC, I never get a chance to visit the historic sites especially the memorials.  Today, while everything is closed for Christmas, decided to take a walk.  The weather is probably the warmest it’ll be all week, just below 50F. I thought it’d be quiet …

A Walk on the Beach

One of my definitions of happiness is sitting on the beach, in the sun — for hours! A few weeks back when we were in Southern California, we had the chance to spend the afternoon on Laguna Beach south of LA before we had to get back to SF.  The …

Was in Southern California this past weekend and had the most amazing view from our hotel room.  I’ve spoken before of how awesome dust is when it comes to light especially in the late afternoon and sunset hours.  Southern California had this awesome haze that I love. (I know that …

Exploration: Light + Color Part II

This is part II of my exploration with Light + Color (see part I). Egypt is actually magical — though it’s hard to remember that sometimes. It’s more so when you have this vantage point vs up close near the pyramids at Giza.  Cairo is one of the most exploited …

Exploration: Light + Color Part I

I’ve been experimenting a lot with my camera, light, color and post processing.  I have gigabytes of photos that I need to sort through from this past year.  Had a little bit of time to do so this past week — I only got through 10 photos!  It’s amazing what …
