Seattle’s Post Alley

This picture was taken very near Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market in Post Alley.  We were trying to find a place to have lunch and all the color caught my eye – never minding the fact it’s all rainbows!  For the record – we ended up with fish & chips less than a block from […]

Fire and Ice

Whistler is one of my favorite (if not my absolute favorite) destinations.  We try to go skiing there just about every winter and we even got married there.  Each day just after dusk, they have a stunt show put on by the ski patrol at the base of the mountain.  The grand finale is a […]

The Old Fence at the Farm

This shot has a lot of nostalgia in it since it was taken at my grandfather’s farm where my brother now lives.  The skyline is different now than I remember – the old barn would have been in the scene in the background on the right.  This photo is a three-shot HDR bracketed at +/- […]

I get thirsty just thinkin’ about it.

I’ve shot this sign literally dozens of times – because it’s only a couple of blocks from my office.  It’s a landmark that was erected on Nicollet Island in about 1940 and still survives – though the brand is now brewed by Schell’s in New Ulm, MN.  Due to it being a grey late fall […]

The Edge of Assisi

This photo was taken during a self-guided walking tour of Assisi courtesy of Rick Steves.  As we were walking along the edge of the city, the old stone houses in front of the Umbrian countryside made a great vista to photograph.  Though this ultimately turned into a high dynamic range photo (HDR), I didn’t shoot […]

Here come ‘da pain!

This is another shot from the Minneathlon ’07 promo photos.  After some false starts, I laid down on the floor in a conference room and said “Beat the $hit out of me”.  Well – at least make it look like it.  I wanted a street fight look – and I got one.  It was a […]

A Snowy Morning

For Christmas Evening, I picked a nice wintry scene.  I tried to find one from Christmas – but can you believe I’ve got nothing better than a snapshot from any of our Christmas gatherings?  I’m apparently too busy focusing on the revelry. This picture was taken on my way to work one wintry morning.  I […]

Northern Lights in the South Metro

About a month after I moved from south Minneapolis to the outer ring suburb of Chaska, my friend Scott called and told me to grab a camera and run outside.  There was a blazing display of Aurora Borealis (also known as the Northern Lights) going on – painting the sky almost completely overhead.  Being early […]

Batten Down the Hatches!

I had originally planned to bike the 25 miles home from work the night this shot was taken.  At the end of the work day, it was over 100 degrees and very humid.  On top of all that, there was a steady 30mph headwind that would have made the trip home sheer misery.  I called […]

All the Little Ghosts ‘n Goblins

I had the grand idea on Halloween to give away portraits of the trick or treaters as they stopped by.  I set up my photo studio in the entryway and tethered my camera to a laptop so that I could instantly print the photo.  I ended up shooting about three dozen little ones and came […]
