Picture of the Week

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

My good friend Tom Vadnais often talks about taking pictures "around your home" or in the city where you live.  For practice, yes, but also to not miss the beauty that you're constantly surrounded by.  I'll be honest and say that when I think of taking pictures...

Rhododendron in Bloom By the Stream

This week's Picture of the Week is a special one for a number of reasons. First, the picture is one of my favorites from the year so far - I absolutely love this image.  Typically when I think of stream scenes, I think of the fall, and this image is a great...

Ponte City – The Core

Ponte City – The Core

Last week I took some time to setup the story of this week's Picture of the Week by talking about the neighborhoods surrounding the Ponte City apartments, and the sketchiness of the situation to get both last week's shot and this week's.  I left it with the question...

Ponte City – Berea and Hillbrow From Above

Alright, so this week's Picture of the Week is really a setup for next week's picture.  I enjoy telling the story of my photos, but I'm also a firm believer in the fact that an image has to stand on its own - meaning the story doesn't make the photo, but is rather...

The Elephant and the Lions

Last week's image and this week's images were all taken at the Aquila Private Game Reserve, which Holly and I visited back in April.  I ended up with multiple images from there that I wanted to share, but rather than drag out South Africa for basically the rest of the...

Heading Home at the End of the Day

Heading Home at the End of the Day

I think I've mentioned maybe a thousand times on this blog that I'm not a wildlife photographer.  I just don't have the glass for it, and I've never taken the time to learn the habits of animals so that I could get images of them that were amazing.  That's sort of the...

Penguins of South Africa

AFRICA!!  The wait is finally over! 🙂 I'm thrilled to be finally starting my series on South Africa, and I wanted to start with what I thought people would expect - animal photos - but perhaps not the animals you would initially think of.  South Africa is full of...
