Crossing over Oahu; you can see Diamond Head on the right sight of the frame. It’s beautiful country.
Taken around the High Line in New York…and on a flight back from the east coast. Edited with Pixelmator. I’m trying to retire photoshop and use Pixelmator (mac) and Snapseed (iphone/android).
Looks like a nice building, but too rich for my blood. I like the crazy angles in this shot. And the feeling of walking around on a warm, sunny spring day. Taken @16mm.
La Sagrada Familia with winter sun. Unsubtle HDR effects.
Cross and crescent at Park Guell
Last big dinner of the trip. We did big meals at Botafumeiro (some good and some bad dishes, pricey), Hoffman (my favorite), Comerc24 (most memorable), and Hisop (the most modest of the tasting menus, if you could say that. Pictured above).
Happy Thanksgiving! Last year I got a chance to visit Moscow to see Kipp; this year we met up to do a one week lightning round of Barcelona, Marrakech, and Lisbon.
Sunset in the Medina. The tower is the minaret at La Koutoubia; the foreground is Djemaa El Fna
Tasting apricots, nuts, dates, etc. at the market square (Djemaa El Fna). So good!

It’s the Sunday after Thanksgiving and still 75 degrees in Dallas. I’m not complaining, but it was nice to get a little taste of fall ast month in Grand Rapids. This photo taken with the Sony RX100 – which has almost completely displaced my SLR since it’s so pocketable and still gets 80% of the photos I could get with the full frame camera. Highly recommended.
Lately I’ve been framing wide angle photos to include the sun as a point of interest. This is Lafayette street on Sunday morning a couple weeks ago.
Random photos from travelling for work in the last week:
Grass for sale, Sunny’s in the East Village. All of these were taken handheld with a Sony RX-100.
Grumman F9F at the Cavanaugh Museum. Kind of striking to think that jets like this were in service as early as 1949.
5D II, 70-200/2.8 II @ 88mm
I’ve gotten lazy about carrying an SLR when traveling, in no small part due to point and shoots getting awesome. I love this shot that Kipp took at Mono Lake a few weeks ago. Kipp did a really nice job capturing the sunset light and setting up an interesting low angle composition with the shoreline rocks and a glossy reflection leading out to the formations (“tufa”). This is straight out of the camera, a 2 year old Canon SD1300 that was $170 brand new and is now covered in battle scars from rock climbing, dusty roads, and other general abuse you give to a camera that stays with you all the time. Flickr has a bunch of other images I’ve taken with this camera, although I actually gave it to Kipp last fall and am now using the slightly smaller and quicker ELPH 300HS.
Below the fold I’ve got the same image with a little Photoshop; I like this best in B&W.
El Capitan, taken a couple of weeks ago under a bright moon. In the large version you can see climbers lights on the wall.
30 seconds, F5, ISO 400, 19mm,
Awesome weather on Saturday, and fun to get out and shoot for the second time in a while. More photos @ Flickr.
Clichéd but still gorgeous – St Basil’s just after sunset.
I’m back after a brief but awesome Thanksgiving trip. More reactions to come.
