That's a lot of red

Wow. When you walk by that much red, you have to stop and take a shot. So, I did. This shot was taken on a trip earlier in the year out in Las Vegas. Restaurants need a lot of color to attract customers. I wasn't hungry. I just liked the red.

Baltimore Inner Harbor at night

Baltimore Inner Harbor at night is a very nice view from a Marriott across the street. Sometimes you hotel room has this view. Sometimes you get to see a rooftop with an air conditioner unit. This is better.

Always a good day waking up by an ocean

Found myself in Annapolis a few weeks ago and got to stay at a Marriott along the Severn River, which cuts through the city. A little touristy but a beautiful area with the Maryland State House serving (briefly) as one of the first capitals of the United States, just a few minutes walk from this spot. Very historic as the Treaty of Paris was signed here, ending the Revolutionary War. Always a good day starting off by an ocean.

Kildare at Live Wire


About a week ago, I got to shoot the band Kildare's official debut at Live Wire where Davern's Tavern bused a bar full of fans to watch Southside Jack (on the mic) and the Szlachta brothers, Matt (shredding the guitar) and Paul (the talented drummer) tear down the house. Quite fun being up past my 10pm bedtime and playing at rock and roll photographer.

Blackstone Ballroom

I got to shoot in the ballroom of the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago. An amazing room and I chose this shot as I loved the details in the lights around the room. Quite a beautiful place to shoot.

National Cathedral

Caught the National Cathedral on a wonder blue sky day (with a contrail) out in Washington DC last week. Not surprisingly, you find this building on top of a broad hill overlooking Washington and Georgetown. Quite a bike ride on those city rental bikes to get there. However, the ride back down is quite fun, except my rental's brakes weren't the best. That was interesting.

Ex Nihilo--out of the void


I don't like taking pictures of other people's artwork but this sculpture above the main entrance of the National Cathedral in Washington is stunning so I couldn't help myself. It was carved by Fredrick Hart, originally a mail clerk of all things at the National Cathedral who became a stone carver. Depicted here is Adam and Eve being born out of the void. Quite realistic male and female forms.

Here is a color shot from further away:
