North Bethesda and Rockville at night

Here are cityscapes of North Bethesda and Rockville at night. Most are taken from a vantage point in Grosvenor Park while some are taken from the walkway above the I-270. I do love it when cities and architects take the time to think about color casts and the impact they will have on the way [...]

Brasov, as seen from the mountains

When you travel through Brasov (Romania), you notice two things: the wonderful medieval buildings and the mountains that surround the city. But there's another way to see the city -- from those same mountains that surround it. If you take the road toward Poiana Brasov, a mountain resort that sits perched atop those mountains, about [...]

Medias from above

During yesterday's morning walk through the town, I got access to the St. Margaret's church bell tower for a few minutes, and ran up to take a few photos of the historic district from above. I hope to be able to return to the tower at some point in the near future so I can [...]

Cannon House Office Building

All sorts of interesting little details can be seen at full res. For example, there's a "Do Not Remove" sticker on one of the windows, [...]

Photos from downtown Baltimore

We made a day trip into downtown Baltimore last week. I had our point-and-shoot with us, and took photos of the architecture. I need to specify that it was our point-and-shoot because you'll see purple fringing on a few of the photos. That can't be helped much when you have a zoom on a digital [...]
