St. Peter's Basilica

What an amazing facility!!  An Italian Renaissance church (the world’s largest church) inside Vatican City is worth a visit regardless of your religious preference.  The architecture, design, and detail is world class.  In short, I was wowed!!

Gator

During a recent trip to Florida, MJ and I went to the Everglades National Park for our first time.  I have no idea how many times we’ve been to Florida in the past…. But the number of visits is way up there.  Maybe 50 plus times…..  I’m not sure… let’s just call it a bunch.  So why it took so long for us to visit the Everglades is beyond me.  We enjoyed the visit and I took this photo of this gator that climbed out of the water about 15 feet from us.  It decided to sun itself and left us alone…and we left it alone.

Le'Veon Bell

It won’t be long until the football season starts.  I don't know how the Steelers or my Lions will do, but one thing is sure thing.  If Le’Veon is healthy, he’ll frustrate the opposite team.  What else would you expect from a former Spartan.

Manhattan Nights

This is one of my favorite spots in NYC.  I’ve been told that this spot was dangerous in the past.  At some point in the last 10 years, the city redeveloped this spot into a great park.  I’ve been to it a few times at night and it’s amazing.  Safe, clean, and beautiful…..plus you can’t beat the view.

Liquid Lounge

Yesterday’s post was of the Havana Bar inside the Carnival Vista.  Today’s post is of the Liquid Lounge from the same ship.  I think Carnival should hire me as a full time photographer to travel the world photographing their ships, island experiences, entertainment, and everything cruising.  I could live the cruise lifestyle…..  Any chance Carnival will call me????

Havana Bar Again

Here is another photo of the Havana Bar on the Carnival Vista.  I loved this part of the ship.  It had such a good vibe, great colors, warm feeling, and wonderful music.  If you’ve checked out my blog in the past, you know MJ and I like Carnival cruises.

Minimalist

Today’s picture is one I took at a Steelers’ game last season as a U.S. Military Special Forces team parachuted into the stadium.  I’ve been thinking about Minimalist Photography for a while now.  So I went back to find this photo, because I knew it fit within this genre.  I’ve posted a few minimalist photos over the last few weeks so see how they did.   I hope you like the style and this photo.  Its simple, clean, and tells a story.

Red #3

I took this photo of the green on Red #3 a few weeks ago before it was taken out.  The Valley Brook Country Club is removing it to add more parking.  They requested a few photos of this spot and a couple of holes before they are gone.  Beautiful spot, don’t you think?

Dez

How’s your summer going?  Mine has been extremely busy and at this point it will be over before I can enjoy it.  Anyway, tonight’s post is of Dez Bryant.  I took this photo last season when the Cowboys were in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh View

Today’s post is from the East Liberty area of Pittsburgh.  The larger tower in the background is the amazing East Liberty Presbyterian Church.  In the foreground are the new Fairfield Apartments.  I liked the new/old contrast of the photo.

Grist Mill

Today’s picture is of the Grist Mill in Babcock State Park in West Virginia. We planned this perfectly to capture the fall color change at this spot and of course, it didn’t work out.  As you can see, the color was changing, but we missed the peak fall foliage color.

Abandoned Cathedral

Blair and I got out today to take a few photos.  We didn’t have the best luck, but I captured this one.  I’ve been to this location a few times and it changes every time I drop in on it.

My Current Project

My Current Project

One of the local country clubs has used me over the last few years for capturing photos of their amazing course.  They called me again recently to have me photograph a few of their greens before they take them off line as they remodel their course.  Here is a seek peek at one photo from this assignment.

United Nations

At this point with everything going on in our world, our country and in our government (specifically in Washington DC); we need stability and common sense.  The United Nations has worked since 1945, when it was created following World War II.  Let’s hope the UN can calm things down between nations across our globe at this time, when it seems like terrorism, anti-immigration, populism, discrimination, isolation, one upping each other, and just “win/lose” positioning from formal and unofficial leaders around the world are the norm.  I don’t know about you, but stability, common sense and peace should be the norm.

US Capital Building

I had a good trip to Washington DC earlier this year and I’m looking forward to the next DC trip later this summer.  I honestly don’t know how many times I’ve been to DC in the past…..so I’ll just guess by using the technical term…”a bunch”.
