ASMP Exhibit

I drove down to Key West Monday to see the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) South Florida Chapter ”Light of Florida” art exhibit at the The Studio of Key West (TSKW).  There were 1200 images submitted for review, 65 made the final cut and 40 were on display.  All of the images were printed with archival inks on archival paper and were available for purchase. One of my images, Orange Light on the Bay appeared.  See images below.  The exhibit will tour Florida at various venues for the next two years.

Arlington County Virginia

On a recent trip to northern Virginia for Thanksgiving with my family I had the opportunity to visit three small parks in Arlington County. They were Bon Air  Park, Four Mile Run Park, with Four Mile Run running through it and Lubber Run Park with the smaller Lubber Run creek meandering through the grounds. The weather was cool, mid 40s, with overcast skies. These conditions make for slow shutter speeds and image stabilized lenses. What follows are a few images from this trip.

Washington National

On a recent spring break visit to Washington, D.C., I saw the airport tower and rooftop of the main terminal building of Washington National Airport from a rooftop parking lot nearby. Under a cloudless sky the curving design elements were clearly visible. At least on this day, the normal mundane skyline image of simple rectangles and boxes is something graceful and artistic. Nice change, nice view, nice memories.

Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, Christ Church

During a spring break to Virginia I walked around Old Town Alexandria and enjoyed a tour of Christ Church of Alexandria. The church is one of the oldest in the country. According to the web site for the church the church was designed by James Wren in the colonial Georgian style. John Carlyle completed the church in 1773. In the 1700s parishioners bought their pews as did George Washington and Robert E. Lee. Later many U.S. Presidents worshipped there.

Nor’easter on Cape Cod

I flew into Boston’s Logan airport as a nor’easter headed for Cape Cod. For two days I was kept indoors by high wind and driving rain — rough conditions for digital cameras. On the third day I ventured out deciding that if the weather was going to present me with a black and white world I would simply make the most of it in black and white.
