View of Stockholm Norrmalm and Gamla Stan from Fotographiska. This was about 3:30 pm in late November. Composition is boring but I think the colors make up for it not being the totally boring photo. Advertisements
Just outside the British Museum in London. No one hardly ever uses pay phones these days. Would have been an interesting contrast between busy street and empty telephone booths during the day.
I had an Oakleaf Hydrangea in my backyard. The unassuming pure white flowers gave a great contrast against their dark green leaves. I used to photograph a lot of plants when I had a garden.
Hurdles is one of track events I like to photograph. Good hurdlers have balance, speed and technique. I would never be able to hurdle regardless of distance. I took other photos of hurdlers but this was the only one that came out OK.
Out of nearly 450 photos I took in Stockholm, this shot remains as one of my favorites. The clean stone alley. Tall old buildings. Small store fronts with signage. A man with a jacket in his hand. It is a side alley in Gamla Stan. Popular streets in the old town are decorated with more […]
Kölner Dom, or Cologne Cathedral with the Hohenzollern bridge on the side. I like this photo, because there are so many different lights happening on different texture: Evening sky, cathedral lighting, bridge lighting, reflection on the Rhine. My Nikon captured them nicely despite my lack of knowledge in low-light situations. Köln was a total surprise. […]
Without knowing much technique to take photos of moving objects, I get a good shot every now and then with my Nikon. This was the first time I took my Nikon to vacation in Köln, Germany, for Gay Games 2010. 800m Final for 50 – 54 age group. I was going through photos from Köln […]
Not much of a baseball fan, but Boston Marathon organizers had a post-race party at Fenway. An empty ballpark at sunset had a very different look and feel.
Being near water has calming effects on me. That is one of the reasons why I love living in San Francisco. Bay Bridge is not as celebrated as Golden Gate Bridge, but it sure is beautiful at night.
Never seen Snowy Egret in person. Beautiful bird but makes alien-like sounds that you would never dream it’s coming from a bird. Perhaps it was because they were nesting. Not easy to photograph moving objects like birds, but I think this one came out nice.
