State park visit number one of Virginia is in the books. Mason Neck State Park is east, on Belmont Bay off the Potomic River near Lorton. According to their website, it the entire region is known for birds, in particular bald eagles. I didn’t think I saw any, but reviewing my photos today showed oneContinue reading “Mason Neck State Park”
Great Falls Park – a National Park Service site on the Potomac – was the first photography outing since I moved my home base to Virginia. The park is a 30 minute drive from my apartment. This morning I spent 3 hours wandering around. The crowd really fills it up around 10:30. I mainly spentContinue reading “Great Falls Park”
Sorry weeks 7 and 8 were skipped. Yesterday I went back downtown to get more photos of the skyline. The Trinity River had dropped back down to it’s usual level, so the shots don’t compare to the previous shots, but it was still fun to bring friends.
Ever since I moved to Dallas I have wanted to take the iconic photograph of the skyline. It took way too long for me to figure out where I needed to go for it. It took an imminent move to northern Virginia to actually go take the picture. February saw record setting rain here, andContinue reading “The Dallas Skyline”
I spent a lot of time this year photographing my neighborhood, Downtown Plano. It started early this year when I tried out time lapse photography, and spawned into a proper photo project and plenty of nightly shoots. The beginning of October saw the publishing of my first time lapse video, Welcome to Downtown Plano. AfterContinue reading “Time Flows By – Downtown Plano”
Saturday afternoon saw a quick DART ride into Downtown Dallas, and some pictures taken around Kyle Warren Park. The park is a large green space with a stage in the heart of downtown that is built over one of the interstate connections. The light was pretty once I got there, with the aerosolized grease fromContinue reading “Downtown Dallas at Dusk”
Palo Duro Canyon. The second largest canyon in the United States, trailing only the Grand Canyon. One of the darkest places in Texas, after Big Bend.
This is one of my first big photography related projects. A proper time lapse movie. Between one-hundred twenty and one-hundred fifty seconds long. Inspired by all those short travel video time lapses that are a dime-a-dozen on Youtube.
2017’s photographic fascination have been time lapse photography. If I want to shoot every night, I need to do it close to my apartment (DFW traffic is awful).
I took an overnight trip to Caprock Canyons State Park in July, solely for the purpose of photographing the stars. A few of my friends mentioned taking a road trip to New Mexico, and I tagged along for the first leg.
