Picture of the Week

A picture a week from around town, or around the world!

Backyard Wildlife

Alright, so I wanted to do something a little different this week.  If you've been hanging around POTW for a while, you know I'm not a wildlife shooter.  Not because I don't like wildlife as a subject, but simply because I just don't have the lens necessary to do it. ...

Color on Walker Camp Prong

Color on Walker Camp Prong

I started my fall colors series last week, and I wanted to continue this week with another stream scene.  Unfortunately for me, the colors have been kind of late the last two years, and my travels have had me out of town when things were really shaping up.  However,...

Saying Goodbye to Summer and the Milky Way

Saying Goodbye to Summer and the Milky Way

Sunrise on Tybee Island

Sunrise on Tybee Island

This week's image is a classic example of the picture presenting itself, rather than me going hunting for a picture.  Let me explain. Last week I posted the image of the Cockspur Island Lighthouse, a super cool, scruffy little lighthouse just at the edge of Tybee...

Tobacco Bay Sunset

I know I took this picture and all.... but can I just say that I love it?  This is definitely one of my favorites from 2017 so far.  This sunset was just AMAZING. Anyway, I've talked on here multiple times about how I try to plan out my shoots when I go to new places....

Grand Hyatt Shanghai

Me: A high floor if possible please Front desk clerk: Well sir, the hotel starts on the 53rd floor... so basically every floor is a high floor. Me: Oh... right! It's a common request I make when I check in a hotel.  I figure, if I'm going to be staying in a hotel, I...
