I have always been a huge fan of using long glass when needed for landscape. This was a 800mm lens used to capture this rising crescent moon in Yosemite at twilight. Hope all of you are having a fantastic day! Please continue to stay safe!

While hiking around in Dead Horse Canyon, Utah, late one evening we saw a photographer working with a bride and groom. They are going to have beautiful wedding photos even though there was haze and smoke from the far away fires in the western states.

"Aqua Building", Chicago, "A Left-Eyed View"

The Aqua Building #3 by Steven

Posted on 2010-04-28

The ever-changing facades of the Aqua Building. Depending on how close (or far) you are standing to the building, the facade either "opens up" with more glass exposure, or closes with less glass exposure. In this view, the building swells up with expanded balconies. How nice it would be to get a few photos from these balconies.

Lizard by Harry

Posted on 2020-07-17

This was taken through a cloudy terrarium glass. The back was another cloudy glass through which a chain-link partition was darkly visible. The lizard was tonally similar to the skull with just a few color markings on the jaw and top of his head. So I decided to replace the ugly background with a sky and convert to black and white.

Soldier on a surfboard

Downtown Los Angeles,Southern California, United States

Flag of US

As many people know, the California National Guard has been called in to quell violence and create some stability in these turbulent times.

I am a avid street photographer, and came upon these 5 guardsmen standing around a military humvee. As I walked the same sidewalk that they were standing by, an African-American young man came by with a skateboard. One of the guardsmen, called out, "do some tricks" and he did.

I captured that good enough, and then the unexpected happen. One of the guardsmen, asked if he could try flipping the surfboard. Well, what do you know. He did it. Well he did it three times. This was the most representative of all three shots. What a nice surprise to a day of shooting protest, and other things. Don't kill the messenger here, I just take the photos. The guardmans later ask, if he could have a copy, and I said of course. We are all human. AF~

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, "Jack Benny"

Waukegan, United States

Flag of US

STatue of Jack Benny recently outfitted with a face mask. This STatue is located in downtown Waukegan, Illinois (his hometown). He STares across the STreet toward the Genesee Theatre which is shuttered due to the COVID pandemic.

This mask is homemade. You can't waste a much-needed mask on an inanimate object. It's a PSA without saying a word.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

this mural was painted on wall in an alley barely wider than a car. standing with my back against the other wall, with my zoom cranked wide, I still was unable to get the whole image including the frame-like painted border. So I cropped the edges a bit. While all the tones are white to black, the photo was not converted.

Ledelle Moe's "Collapse I" by Harry

Posted on 2020-10-07

I seldom photograph other people's art, but I was fascinated with this sculpture by Ledelle Moe on the grounds of the N.C. Museum of Art. It was a hip down rendition of a nude figure; there was rebar & heavy mesh fencing structure visible through crudely applied concrete. There were gaps visible every here and there where you could see into and sometimes all the way through. I walked all the way around, and there were several "do not climb" signs, but no mention of the title or artist, so I had to do some online research. The cement, of course, was very neutral, so B&W was an easy choice

Crashing waves in Lake Tahoe

Carson City, Nevada, United States

Flag of US

Last Tuesday was amazing, I went for a 10 mile hike, then to Tahoe to go take pictures. I Had a map and couldn't decide where I wanted to go, So I kinda moved my finger up and down a map of the East side of Lake Tahoe and decided on Chimney Beach. By the time that I got there I was exhausted from the hike and still had about a mile hike down to the beach. I pretty much limped the whole way to the Beach.

The trail ran along Marlette Creek, and when I finally emerged out of the river my jaw dropped. I had never seen a place this amazing. The trees, the granite, the river, the lake, the sand. I just couldn't believe that a place like this existed. Just an amazing place.

When I got here I ran like a kid in a candy from one place to another trying to find the perfect composition for when the light started changing.

Perseid meteor showers

Perseids by Fran

Posted on 2020-08-14

Made an attempt to capture the Perseid meteor shower. Not a great success. I set up the camera on a tripod with an intervalometer so it would take photos continuously and went to sleep. We were up at our son's cabin in the Catskills. There was distant lightning and then clouds rolled in and it poured. Fortunately our son was awake and pulled in the camera before it was totally drowned.

There are 2,100 permanent plantings plus seasonal ones that change. Not bad for a building well over 100 years old.

It's claimed that this building is the most photographed spot in San Diego.

Old Barn And Silos

Dartmouth, Massachusetts, United States

Flag of US

This abandoned barn rests next to a nature preserve and made for an interesting subject. I went by often, waiting for certain lighting and weather. This made for a nice spot, if not for the barn but for the birds and wildlife on the nearby preserve.

It once had a weary titled weathervane I photographed. Then after a windy storm, the weathervance collapsed. Also, parts of the barn tin siding became bent and in areas blown off.

However, with each passing visit, the barn was ever so slowly disappearing. If not for the storms beating against, it was ever so slowly being salvaged for its metal and timbers inside. At the time of this writing, it is no more with only the silos still standing. I'm sure the silos will come down soon as well. Hopefully, I will be able to capture some of it.

In this place, it is the end of farming era.

Boonsboro Building by Elaine Hancock

I needed to get out of the house so I took a drive to Middletown and Boonsboro, MD. Boonsboro was founded by George Boone, a cousin of Daniel Boone, and was originally named "Margaretsville" after his wife. Boonsboro was a key town during the Civil War. Two battles were fought in its borders. The town was also used to keep wounded soldiers after the Battle of Antietam in September 1862.

Tahquamenon Falls - Upper Falls by Steven

Posted on 2020-06-11

Coming into view, seeing these Falls was like a revelation. I didn't know what I was going to see and I had not seen published photos of these Falls in books or in online resources previously. The tannins of the water, which give it its brown color, along with the autumnal colors of the surrounding foliage were like an "A-ha" moment. I must have taken twenty photos of these Falls from different viewpoints with the hopes that at least one photo would be worthy.

Pandemic Sunset by Daniel

My usual sunrise and sunset location is close to the public due to the pandemic. Some geniuses still gather there, despite strict social distancing regulations and the fact that the park is closed. I think this view is pretty nice although I don't know that it is as nice as from the park.This is about 4 minutes walking from my door.

Holi Indian festival colors colours Spring Hindu

Happy Holi 2020 by Sugata

Posted on 2020-03-10

Holi is a major festival celebrated all over India, primarily by Hindus. On this day of the spring full moon, people put dry and wet colours over each other in joyous celebration.

We live in the US Midwest, far from India. We try to celebrate these festivals in our own way, with whatever things we get in the stores here. Going outside and playing with wet colours is usually quite impossible due to the freezing temperatures. So this year we celebrated Holi this year by giving some dry colours to our 22-month old daughter to play with. Here's a photo from what followed.

Sara and I had the pleasure of visiting New York for the first time in December while on an amazing cruise on the Queen Mary 2 to both New York and some of the incredible Caribbean islands to celebrate the year of our 30th anniversary and a milestone birthday for Sara. This was one of the first sights we had after we docked in the cruise terminal in Brooklyn, for us it was a day of incredible city sights and we were so lucky with clear skies and a temperature of 15 deg C to experience the Big Apple.

I would like to wish everyone who knows me on AM3 a very happy and healthy 2020.

Spotted at the Blackwell Forest Preserve on Butterfield Road in Warrenville, Illinois, autumn is reflected off of Silver Lake. This is a scenic area with nine miles of trails, picnic pavilions/shelters, fishing and boat rentals, archery ranges, camping, snow tubing and more. This was our first visit here and we were totally surprised by the autumn colors and scenery we saw.

Festive Photoshoot - 3 by Sugata

Durga Puja is the biggest festival of the year for Bengali Hindus. Even here in the USA, we gather to worship the mother Goddess every year. This year, however, the festivities are scaled down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we are staying at home. So I did this series of photos (this and the previous two) dressing up my two-year-old daughter in a traditional Bengali sari. The Fall leaves outside was an added bonus.

Wildest Sunset Shoot Ever in California

Wildest Sunset Shoot Ever in California by Don Smith

So Beri, our grandson Bradley and I were out watching what we think is actually the sun setting into the smoke-filled skies of Central California when... a little alien whispered in my ear to look up! Well, we are only 280 miles north of Hollywood... You never know... Could they be filming ET2???

I think this image needs to go viral - what about you? Darnedest thing I've ever seen at sunset. I'm still scratching my head.

BTW - Sun captured with Sony a7RIV, Sony 200mm-600mm @600mm, Sony 2x converter, APS-C mode for a total reach of 1800mm. ET??? Phone Home!!!

Smoke in California is so thick that it was dark at my house a full hour before official sunset last night - still can't see the sun this morning and it has been up for 45 minutes. Very apocalyptic looking. This is a setting sun captured at 1200mm (Sony 200mm-600mm + 2x converter). When nature creates art - go capture it!

A frog lawn ornament that sits upon a fence post b

Massachusetts, United States

Flag of US

On a certain road there is a frog lawn ornament sitting on a fence post. There is no yard nearby, nor a house. It is a single fence post by the side of the road with a ornamental frog on it. I don't know why, but I found it amusing and I would smile.

The pictured frog is not the original frog, for other frogs have sat upon this post. The changing of the frogs was through unfortunate means.

It is the third one I can remember. The first frog was taken from the post - just gone. No sign or evidence of what happen to it. I can only speculate that someone may have taken it.

When another frog took its place, that frog did not last long. It appeared someone had broke it. The broken frog sat there for a little while. How sad I thought, a half broken frog on the fence post.

The now named, "Fogland Frog" sits upon the post with friends and perhaps, when people drive by, they can smile once more.

I was editing images for my book project yesterday when I came upon this image captured on the early morning of June 1, 2018. I joke that most dads take their sons fishing or golfing, but I took my youngest son Aaron on a doors-off helicopter ride to photograph the famed Fissure 8 on the Big Island of Hawaii. We had to wait 5 days to get booked and then departed out of Hilo Airport on a Friday morning at 7am (first copter up). I had read that pilots could get no closer than 5 miles and was surprised when our pilot asked me how close I wanted to get?
