The Hana Highway Waterfalls

Looking back – it’s probably lucky that I had any water in this shot at all.  The Hana Highway on Maui is legendary for the dozens of waterfalls that can be seen from the serpentine road that connects Hana to the rest of the world.  It also is one of the wetter places on the […]

The Rockport Rock Port

Here is one from the wayback machine.  It’s a three-image-wide panoramic that I took of the harbor in Rockport, MA.  It was shot back in September of 2000 with an Olympus 3030z velcroed to a metal railing.  Though it’s an antique in the digital camera world – it was really amazing at the time and […]

Bangalore Market

Honestly, this is a pretty poor picture from a technical viewpoint.  It’s really grainy and it’s a severe crop from another image.  Considering what I had to go through to get this picture, it’s a triumph. This shot was taken out the window of our car as we braved three hours of traffic in Bangalore […]

Tutti Frutti

There is an old photographic adage – if something is colorful, take a picture of it!  It’s hard to get much more colorful than the selection of ice cream at this coffee shop near Orlando, FL.  We were on a walk to check out the small downtown area of Windermere, FL when we stopped for […]

Vernazza Harbor

This picture is of the harbor in Vernazza, Italy – the 4th town in the Cinque Terre.  The Cinque Terre is a unique and picturesque area in northwestern Italy made up of five small towns linked by hiking trails and a rail line.  We stayed in Vernazza in November, 2007 for a few days to […]

Team C4 Joins with a Bang

This is the third of four Minneathlon 2.0 team pictures that I want to share.  This is Team C4 – Dan and Steve.  Most teams came to me with an idea of what they wanted to do – and they were no exception.  They rounded up the skeleton from the ME department and my practice […]

Turn Around.. Every now and then..

Here’s a quick photographic inspirational tip – turn around.  Sometimes the better image is behind you!  I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person that has this picture – because it’s at your back when you are at a really spectacular scenic vista near Lanesboro, MN.  When I realized there wasn’t a shot that I […]

The Reservoir Dogs

My sister is still chapped about this picture.  It was taken as my soon-to-be-brother-in-law was walking down to see his bride-to-be for the first time.   I was assigned to shoot preparation pictures of Dano as he dressed for the wedding.  I had always envisioned this Reservoir Dogs style shot where the dressed-to-kill groomsmen were lined […]

The Flavian Ampitheater – Part II

I love this shot of the Colosseum in Rome for a bunch of reasons.  First, it’s a night shot.  That’s cool by itself.  Second, due to the time of day and the long exposure – no people are in the shot.  That’s pretty rare for the Colosseum.  We were walking home from dinner at Da […]

Just One Windstorm Away

My grandfather was a farmer.  Back in those days, farmers were a lot more generalized – and he raised everything from crops to cows and everything in between.  As a result, he needed a lot of outbuildings – barns, chicken coops, pig barns, and so forth.  This picture is whats left of the cow barn.  […]
