A picture a week from around town, or around the world!
Sunset in Queen Canyon

Sunset in Queen Canyon

So for the last couple of weeks, I've been sharing images I made while out in the Arizona desert.  I mentioned that I had met my friend here for the express purpose of photographing the Milky Way in dark skies, but I also just wanted to do some exploring around to see...

Cactus Under the Stars

It's a Picture of the Week two for one! 🙂  I mentioned last week that I had met my friend Allen out in the desert earlier this year so that we could photograph the Milky Way.  Our skies here in the eastern United States have just been destroyed with light pollution,...

Late Light in the Desert

Alright, this week I'm kicking off my series of images from the Arizona desert!  It's not often that I get to photograph with friends when I'm out of town.  It does happen every so often, but generally speaking I'm by myself.  This trip was an exception however.  My...

The Blount County Courthouse at Sunset

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...

Cape Town at Sunset

Cape Town at Sunset

Alright, on to the cities!  I've commented many times that I'm not a wildlife photographer (but you can't come back from Africa without pictures of animals... right?), so I'm happy to be back in my comfort zone this week with landscapes and cityscapes, and in Cape...

Meeting the Cheetahs at Ashia Cheetah Sanctuary

For those of you that know Holly and I personally, you'll know we're cat people.  We love cats, watch cat videos, have a pet cat... Holly even made me cat pajama pants (I should have stopped short of that one, huh?) last year as a joke, and I wore them till they fell...
