The news of the burning of Notre Dame hit me pretty hard today. Paris is one of my favorite places in the world, second only to Ireland and forever holds a special place in my heart.

On my trip to Puerto Vallarta in 2016, I had set up my camera to do a time-lapse from the balcony of my room to capture the sunrise. I then completely forgot about it until I started looking through old photos today. During a break from some projects, I decided to spend some time learning
My friend invited me to come take pictures in his town of Newton, NJ on Newton Day. I snagged some great shots and this one is a particular favorite because it reminds me of the portal from Stranger Things.
Following a walking tour of Prague which ended at the Charles Bridge, I managed to snag some hand held shots of the city from the Charles Bridge and stitched them together in Lightroom. It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the city was.
The Prague Castle dates from the 9th century and is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. It has been a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. The castle is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site which consists of a large-scale composition of palaces
Another vantage point near Vysehrad allowed me to capture this beautiful image overlooking the city of Praha and the Vltava river on New Year’s Day. The lone firework in the distance was caught by pure luck as this was taken much later after the New Year’s celebrations had finished. More pictures to come!
I was blessed to be in Praha, the City of a Hundred Spires, this past New Year’s. The entire country was beautiful with friendly people and rich in history and architecture. I met up with a friend who brought us to a vantage point with a beautiful view to enjoy the New Year’s celebrations. In
Last May, I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Galápagos Islands of Charles Darwin Fame. As expected, I discovered the Island offered many opportunities for photography and was not disappointed in the slightest. Between the seals, iguanas, Blue Footed Boobies, and the pelicans, there was so much to take in and enjoy. Nature proved to be fun
Way back in 2012, I started taking classes to better learn both how to use manual settings and take better photos. With my Canon T3i in hand, I attended a hands-on workshop hosted at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, NJ. From Wikipedia: The Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the fifth-largest
When I went to Turkey in 2013, I took some shots early in the morning during the hot air balloon launches. Unfortunately, a fog had rolled in and a lot of the early shots I took were hazy and foggy. I never got around to deleting the photos even though I didn’t consider them usable. I
I managed to capture some photos on my jaunts around the world. At some of the locations I visited, I tried my luck at hand holding my camera and taking pictures as I panned around. I recently spent some time merging the photos and generated a few spectacular panoramas. During my visit to Ireland a
During my trip to Old Quebec back in 2013, I stayed at the Hotel de Glace, aka the Ice Hotel. The experience was interesting to say the least. I arrived early to grab some photos of the site before the crowds got large and blocked the views. As I had booked a stay, I was

Last April, I managed to visit the NYC Botanical Gardens during their Orchid show. It was a great opportunity to play with my macro lens which doesn’t happen too often. It was one of the first times I used the macro lens with the 5D Mark III but even with the lack of experience, quite
Last year, I wanted to do something completely different and photograph something out of the norm. I took advantage of a Living Social deal to stay at the Hotel de Glace in Old Quebec for one night. I extended my trip and stayed at the Chateau De Frontenac to get the opportunity to photograph the
