Unconditional Surrender (The Kiss), San Diego

In the Port of San Diego stands a 25-foot-tall replica of the famous photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt, V-J Day in Times Square. The photo ran in Life Magazine in 1945 with the caption, “In New York’s Times Square a white-clad girl clutches her purse and skirt as an uninhibited sailor plants his lips squarely on []

LED mood lighting on American Airlines' new 737 fleet.

Boeing Sky

American Airlines’ new 737-800s feature Boeing Sky, an interior “skylight” in the ceiling of the plane engineered to increase spaciousness and provide LED “mood lighting” that mimics the ambient light conditions outside the plane.

Killington Sunrise HDR

Killington, VT: Sunrise HDR

It can be tough to motivate myself to get up early and head outside in the cold for a snowshoe when it’s still dark. Sunrises like these, though, make it all worth it. We’re not in Killington very much longer, so I’d better enjoy the snow while it’s still in our backyard. This a 3-exposure, []

Killington, VT: Aqua Sky

(Aside: A web gallery of underwater photos from my Nassau trip is now up on my main site.) Today’s photo is another from my first snowshoe of the season, but in color. I dialed up the aqua in the sky in post-processing because I just love the way blue-greens pop against white.

Nassau, Bahamas: Beaches, Boats, and Brews

Everything seems brighter in the tropics. I chose to process most of these in HDR because I really liked how it brought out the bright, saturated colors of the islands. First, a few from Stuart Cove’s, the dive center where we spent most of our vacation:   These bait boxes go underwater with the shark []

Nassau: Winter in Paradise

  During our Nassau trip, it became evident that even the Bahamas are not immune to winter. We had a storm roll across the island that brought strong winds, cold temperatures, and a little bit of rain. We hunkered down for a day, but as the storm moved back out to sea, we came back []
