Chicago Christmas Colors

Ok, a little blurry, but I was in stop and go traffic heading into Ohare and trying to grab a quick shot while safely driving at a crawl speed, but I liked the colors. Tough to get out and compose a shot in traffic when you have a plane to catch!!! With Chicago's budget deficit, you have to wonder if it is worth it.

Horseshoe Fountain Shreveoport

Early morning sunrise over the fountain at the Horseshoe Casino in Shreveport. Louisiana. Actually, a very nice hotel and one of my favorites on my travel rotation. That comment has nothing to do with the overall winning percentage and the very low room rates for very nice sized rooms...

Lower Manhattan

I saw this as a bendy stretchy shot when I took it so fooled around to get the buildings to wrap in the software. I had the 10-24mm lens on the D7000 to help get it get that curved look.

Miami Colors

For once I don't think the camera does these colors justice in this very bright light sunlight. Still woderful view of newer buildings with Art Deco colors.

Empire State in Red

My hotel room in my last trip to New York had a window view of the Empire State Building. Still haven't been up to the observation deck. Have to do that one day.

Downtown Vegas

Colorful view of downtown Vegas from Oscar's Restraurant (World's Best Steakhouse) in the Plaza Hotel. Lately I have like visiting downtown Vegas more than the strip. One of these days, we will stay down there.

Another Dolphin Shot

I was so lucky to get this shot while lounging on a balcony on a cruise this summer. I posted a similar shot a few weeks ago and I like this one just as well. I was trying to get shots of flying fish which occasionally buzzed the ship. Then these dolphins came by and this was the only time I saw any dolphins the whole trip. Grab, focus and shoot. That is what got the shot.

California Sycamore

When walking around any where, I am always looking up. Lots of interesting shots are above you. I love shooting into the tops of trees, especially when they have an interesting structure, such as this California Sycamore. This was taken while walking in San Francisco.

Inside a Piano in Richmond

Always looking for the unusual angle caught this shot by looking up as I was walking under a bridge near the James River in Richmond. Looks like I am inside a piano, doesn't it?

NYC and the Empire State Building from Brooklyn

Here is looking at you New York, New York from Brooklyn Heights. It did seem like a dreamy fall evening, despite Hurricane Sandy about to come barreling down the East River.

Fall Colors --here and gone

Before I left for a long trip the fall colors were just peaking. I get back and all the leaves are gone. Luckily, I got out shooting before I left and caught some nice color.

Atlanta from Buckhead

Shot from my hotel room in Buckhead, a suburb of Atlanta. Nice crisp morning with Hurricane Sandy having brought all that cold air down from the north.
