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”.

Line Of Scrimmage

Here is a photo from last season’s Steelers game in Cleveland.  There is just something about the line of scrimmage in football games.  That’s the battleground on the field.  When the players are lined up helmet to helmet waiting for the play to start, you can feel the tension.  Of course, the Browns don’t put up much of a challenge for the Steelers.

PGH Sunrise

I’ve been busy lately with work stuff.  Sorry I haven’t been posting as often as normal.  I’ll do my best, but probably won’t get back to normal until late June.  Regardless, today’s photo is a sunrise from the West End Bridge looking back at Pittsburgh.  Have a great week.

Another Carrie Furnace Pic

Here is another photo from our Carrie Furnace photo walk.  This is a really cool industrial location and the last remaining steel plant from the former Pittsburgh steel industry.  It isn’t in use anymore, but it keep as a “museum”.  Anyway, it’s fun to explore.

Bee

As you can tell, I’ve been playing with Macro Photography lately.  I took this photo today in my back yard trying to capture this bee has it buzzed around these flowers.  It wouldn’t hold still, imagine that, so getting a good photo wasn’t easy.

Focus Stacking

I’ve been playing with my macro lens recently in my yard.  I haven’t used this lens much over the years and I sort of forgot how narrow the depth of field is with it.  Which means that you can’t get the entire flower in focus, unless you use the magic of focus stacking.  So that’s what I did.  This photo is made from 7 photos focused at different spots and then I blended them together for this complete in focus photo of these flower buds.  This Focus Stacking technique creates some amazing detail.  Take a look at all the detail on the buds and the plant

Malta Alley

I found this cool little alley while walking around the city of Valletta, Malta.  Unfortunately, MJ wasn’t with me on this city exploration.  I wanted to open all these doors and see what was inside, but I restrained myself.  I didn’t think the owners would appreciate it.

Another NYC Pic

I realize the last photo I posted was from NYC as well.  Sorry if that is disappointing to you.  I took this photo from up on the Manhattan Bridge looking back towards Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset.  What a great night and cityscape!  I’ve enjoyed every trip we’ve taken to NYC.

Abandoned China

Here is another photo from the Shenango China factory in Pennsylvania.  I’ve had a couple visits to this site and it has some great spots to explore.  The molds and china (in various stages of completion) left behind make it interesting.

Dominican Republic Flower

This is a holiday weekend in the United States.  So regardless of whether you're in the USA or not, I hope you have a great weekend.  Today’s post is of a natural flower that I found in the DR.  By the way, the white structure in the background is an observation tower.

Leaping Jesse

I took this photo last season when the Cowboys were in town.  Honestly, I got a ton of great action photos that game.  This is just an example of what I captured during this epic battle between two good teams.

Jesse James (#81) is a 3rd year TE player from Penn State, who grew up in Pittsburgh (Mckeesports PA).  So he’s a hometown kid, who has made good so far.  Let’s hope he continues to do well.
