Savannah City Hall

Savannah City Hall I didn’t know this at the time, but I’ve since learned that the very top dome of the Savannah City Hall was covered with gold in 1987. Now that’s quite an ambitious statement. Here in Central Florida, I hear news reports all the time about people getting busted for stealing copper. Just […]

The Green Flash

The Green Flash

The Green Flash [pinit] Some folks think the Green Flash is a legend or myth. Others think it’s a restaurant. Well, it is a restaurant. There’s a place called “The Green Flash” within walking distance of this spot, but I can’t recommend it. My mother likes the place, but I wasn’t impressed. The Green Flash […]

Tail of the Dragon

Tail of the Dragon

Tail of the Dragon [pinit] If you came here because you searched on “Tail of the Dragon” looking for information about Deal’s Gap, you’re in the wrong place. For those of you who don’t know about Deal’s Gap, it’s a wonderfully twisty road that motorcyclists enjoy. I’ve ridden it before and you need a lot […]

A World at War

A World at War

A World at War [pinit] This view from above shows a world at war – at least in aviation history. This is a wide view of the World War II aviation exhibit at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum just outside of Washington, D.C. I love this place, even if they hate my tripod. Why […]

Crystals Las Vegas

Crystals Las Vegas [pinit] If you’ve ever been to Crystals Las Vegas retail shops in City Center, Las Vegas, you’re bound to have seen this large wooden centerpiece structure. If you’re like me, you’re also bound to have asked, “What the hell is that thing?” I’m told it’s a treehouse that holds Maestro Ocean Club restaurant. […]

A Day on the Bay

A Day on the Bay

A Day on the Bay [pinit] I shot these scene at Portofino Bay about two and a half years ago. Some of those images I really loved, and then there was this one. I just never loved the way I processed the image, and I was also a bit unhappy with the ghosting of some […]

For a Safe and Secure Society

For a Safe and Secure Society

For a Safe and Secure Society [pinit] I just got through watching the U.S. Vice Presidential debate for 2012. Both parties want a safe and secure society, I’m sure. Sadly, it reminded me a bit of Star Wars and the difference between the Jedi and the Sith. No, I’m not going to say which political […]

Fountain of Nations at Epcot

Fountain of Nations

Fountain of Nations I went to Epcot last night and shot this angle on the Fountain of Nations. There’s a very classic way to shoot the Fountain of Nations with Spaceship Earth behind it.  This ain’t it, though. It’s easy to find the spot. As you’re leaving the park, you’ll see a couple of Disney staff […]

Portofino Fog

Portofino Fog

Portofino Fog [pinit] We’re getting close to a turning point in the weather around here. That means it’s time to start thinking about my Portofino fog shot again. I never seem to catch it when we’re really socked in with fog so thick that you can’t see those trees at the end of the Portofino […]
