Sunsets at Work

The sunset was entirely beautiful this evening to not pull out my camera.

A most fabulous photowalk with Trey Ratcliff

Edit:  Eight more photos added. (8/14)
Edit 2: Two new and One re-edit posted. (8/17)

A few weeks ago, I got an odd e-mail about my Google+ community; Atlanta Photography being used for Trey Ratcliff’s Atlanta Photowalk.  Sadly, if you’re reading this and weren’t there, you missed it.  You can read the details here.  People have been posting their photos to my g+ group with the tag #TreyUSA and #AtlantaPhotowalk.

Enough words though.  You all come here for the same reason you surf the web and (if you’re old enough to remember them) buy *those* magazines.  You know the ones I’m talking about.

So here are the first fruits of the Photowalk last night.  There will be many more images added to this gallery over time.  I took almost a thousand shots in 3-shot bracketed groups.  HDRI is the focus of Trey’s work so of course I had to shoot for HDRi.  I shot these at +2, 0, -2 stops which gives me somethign on the order of 16 stops of dynamic range (have to confirm that number when I can find the time.. it’s off the top of my head and may be even wider than that).

Enjoy the photos.

A friend, Chris, from Texas

A close friend of Wendi and I came in from Texas for DragonCon this week.  We made the trip down by MARTA to brave the 60,000+ DragonCon geeks, plus the 10s of thousands of fans for some sports-ball thing, to have lunch.  It was worth it.

 

A stroll through an underground station.

I love the industrial feel of some of the underground MARTA stations in Atlanta.  Some of them have a very dystopian feel to them.  I took these today on my way back from having lunch with a friend during DragonCon.  There’s also an image of a great neon sign inside Durango’s steak house.

A Beacon in the Dark

More pulls from the deep archives.  This one taken in 2009 of one of my favorite skyscrapers in downtown Atlanta.

A colorful city.

Two photos of Atlanta (one downtown, one in Kennesaw, just a few miles northwest of downtown) showing the fabulous variety of color you can capture with very little effort; just timing and luck.

Head in the clouds

I’ve been going back through the archives (where’ve we heard that before?) and found a few cloud photos from years past.   Enjoy.

Snowpocalypse Part Deux

We got hit with a second snow storm a week after the last one.  At least this time it didn’t shut the entire city down, stranding motorists for days.  Being stuck in my home (working from home, damned interweb tubes things) I couldn’t let a camera sit idle.

Even Steve, the skull in a jar, likes playing in the snow.

It’s unusual to see frozen beads of water on a car.

 

 

Atlanta Snowpocalypse 2014

A few shots of the Snowpocalypse 2014 that brought Atlanta to a stand still this year.  Shot on January 28, 2014.

Abandoned lawn mower in the snow.

Even the lawn mowers were stuck.

A Night at The Shelter

Tuesday night was a DVD release party at The Shelter in Atlanta.   We intended to do a red-carpet photo op with paparazzi and everything.  The lighting was a bit too intense for the club so we moved out into a side-room and opened the windows on down town Atlanta.

Instead of a red carpet, we have a black couch.  Worked so much better. A hell of a lot of fun was had by everyone and I have the photos to prove it.
