Video: A Day in the Mountains

I'm a fan of photography and a big fan of time lapse photography.

I also love the Appalachian Mountains, and Blowing Rock, NC in particular.

Over many visits, I've recorded several time lapses, and here combined them into a finished product.

It's odd to me how much those mountains feel like home. Or, more like coming home.

Snapshots: Thanksgiving

When in Rome, see the sights.

When in Virginia, enjoy family and shoot guns.

And perhaps photograph a lovely sunset.


Snapshots: JFK Approach

After over a month away in Rio, flying back home felt like seeing an old friend again.

On this August afternoon we took a lazy and looping path towards JFK.

I never tire looking out the window. So much humanity and diversity crammed into such a small space.

It's good to be back.

2015 Lens Culture Contest

I took these pics in New Zealand over Christmas.

I then entered them into The Lens Culture Contest.

The theme was scale — juxtaposing the enormous and immoveable with the scale we understand more, ourselves.

Snapshots: Leaving Las Vegas

My wife raced in the Rock ’n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon this past November.

Naturally, I brought my camera along. Our more touristy adventures included The Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon.

Snapshots: Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain State Park is located close to my home in NYC. We went hiking on a crisp Saturday morning hoping to catch some pretty fall foliage.

The difficult 7 mile hike did not disappoint. Afterwards we ate (a lot) at Chilis.

Leave it to city dwellers to celebrate the best of rural and suburban America in one weekend day.

Snapshots: Umstead Park

Before departing Raleigh, I visited Umstead Park.

I find it curious I never visited the park when I actually lived in Raleigh. For five years, I just ignored it.

Now equipped with my camera, I can finally see this place. In fact, this is a reoccurring theme: My camera helps me see what has always been.

That is, perhaps, a great power of still photography.
