One thing about winters is they don't like to leave. Just when you think they're packing to go back north, they settle back down for at least a few more days. And they're not shy about it, either. They'll let loose and bring on a bonafide winter storm. This particular one happened just about six … Continue reading A late winter snowstorm
Here are a few photos of spring, captured on 35mm film with an Exakta EXA Ia camera. They were taken in Grosvenor Park and Rock Creek Park, MD.
Back in the States, we lived in a community called Grosvenor Park. Photos I've taken there are featured often on my website. It was a nice place, true to its name: it was a park with a brook, ponds, trees, all sorts of vegetation and even a little forest out back. In the parking lot … Continue reading The old Mercedes

So I started to think fondly of colder times and gladly contemplated freezing weather … Continue reading Thinking of colder times
Back in 2006, when I got serious about photography, we went up to the roof of our apartment building and were rewarded with a beautiful evening sky and sunset. You know how it is, you always remember the first time, it seems more magical somehow, and this time it was no different. The sky and … Continue reading A sunset to remember
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 … Continue reading North Bethesda and Rockville at night
