This shot was taken almost exactly a year ago on my trip to Florence, Italy. I would be curious to know the exact story of this couple, but to be honest I don't even recall the name of the cemetery. I do remember walking through this place quite vividly, with the bright summer sunshine contrasting with the ancient graves.
A graveyard in Florence.

If you have been following my photostream for even a short period of time you probably know that the North Ave. Beach jetty is a favorite place of mine. On the rare occassion that I am able to get up bright and early for a sunrise, I often find myself coming here, knowing that I will have a great place to watch it. I discovered this spot at a workshop I did over a year ago with Justin Kern from The Golden Sieve. Justin is doing another workshop on May 26th and there are still a few slots left, so if you are going to be in Chicago then I highly reccomend contacting either myself of Justin regarding this great opportunity.
Found this spot just before the entrance to Mount Rainier.
I woke up bright and early for a sunrise last week at one of my favorite photo spots, North Ave Beach. The light was excellent and I came back with a couple shots which I will be posting this week.
A shot from my trip to Devil's Lake a couple weekends back.
Space Needle February 29, 2012 |
A minimalistic shot of the Space Needle from downtown Seattle. Not my usual style but I enjoy trying new things.
From the Needle February 28, 2012 |
Looking down at Seattle from the Space Needle.
On the way into Mt. Rainier we passed through the small town of Elbe for a bite to eat. Nearby the restaurant sat this small edifice, The Elbe Lutheran Church. This church was listed on Ripley's Believe it or Not as the world's smallest functional church. This church is often described as being "on the road to paradise" since it is on the highway that travelers use to access Paradise, a developed area in Mt. Rainier National Park.
If you have been following this blog for a while, you may have noticed that I like to shoot wide. My go to lens is almost always the 14-24mm giving me a very open view of everything, much like I see the world. This shot was taken with my 18-300mm zoomed in a lot. I am still experimenting this lens and learning how to create interesting angles from far away. This shot was taken from Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, a great place to watch the sun set behind the city.
Devil's Lake February 20, 2012 |
Still having momentum from the recent Seattle trip, I made way up to Devil's Lake Wisconsin with my friend Bryan yesterday. It's about a 3 and a half hour trip from Chicago and it didn't dissapoint. This shot was the very first one that I took, with the sun still high enough to peak through the trees.
