Yellow Jacket

With it being summertime, I often have the window in my apartment cracked open. Being on the 14th floor (OK, really the 13th. NYC is apparently a superstitious place and there are very few floors labeled 13) I didn’t really expect much to be able to fly up that high but there are often many…

Floating Lily

On a previous trip visiting family in India, my brother-in-law invited me to go to a place where he liked to hike and camp. It was a jungle just a little outside the city of Bangalore. It was actually quite odd to go to such a remote place while being so close to such a…

Potter’s Blue

I was looking back over some of my earlier pictures and came across this one of a potter wasp on a blue, possibly purple, allium flower. I had just gotten my Sigma 150mm macro and was testing it out for the first time. This was when I realized that depth of field was so impactful.…

Monkey Business

This is the second shot of mine at the Taj Mahal that is a favorite of mine. Primarily because it’s not the typical Taj shots, although I do have those as well. For this shot, we had made our way past the reflecting pool and gardens and had taken a look at the mosques flanking…

Cleared for Landing

It’s funny, I’ve lived in NYC for several years now but never set foot on Roosevelt Island. For those that don’t know what Roosevelt Island is, it’s a thin strip of land in the East River (The river that runs along the east side of Manhattan). It’s roughly 2 miles long and less than 1000…

Walking the Dog

A little while back, in mid-January, we had several days of some incredible fog in NYC. It was so thick I couldn’t even see across the Hudson river to Jersey City let alone the buildings a block away. So it seemed like a good opportunity to go out and take some cool atmospheric shots. It…

Sunrise in the Grass

This shot was taken in Hyde Park in London. I left the house relatively early in the morning and this particular morning was quite chilly. As I walked along the paths my breath was visible in the air and the layer of frost on the ground hadn’t started to melt just yet. The park is…

Give Me Some Sugar

This shot is from my early days with my macro lens. I thinks it’s because of shots like this that I really love macro. The detail that is invisible to the naked eye but captured by the camera is actually almost addictive. You want to keep taking more of these types of shots to see…

Nantucket Summer

I was going back through my shots from my trip to Nantucket this summer. With the weather being so dreary and cold, it was incredibly warming and cheering to come across this one. This is taken at Madaket Beach. My wife and I had ridden our bikes to this beach from the main town on…

Steam

I took this shot on my first trip to Iceland. Having never been there before, I didn’t know what to expect but what I found was incredibly cool. The trip from Keflavik airport to Rejkyavik is through old lava fields. These are fields of uneven black rock that stretch on for miles. And if you…
