Tokyo, Japan – Temple (HDR)


When you take strolls in your travels you can find some cool little locations. This one was located near the Tokyo Tower. A small little temple sitting in a park just waiting to be photographed. Not sure if it is still in use…but it looks great! Japan is one beautiful country. Hope to one day get there for vacation so I have all the free time to take tons of pics!!

Paris, France – Moulin Rouge (HDR)


From my favorite city in the world…Paris, France. When I visited last I had made it a goal to photograph Moulin Rouge. I arrived at 5 PM and made my way up to this section of Paris. Not the most beautiful location. Odd folks all around and specialized “shops” are all over. I kept my tripod in hand as I walked the streets. I did not get a chance to see the show inside…maybe one day. I am sure it is interesting! I stayed until 11 PM and the nite life around here is very interesting. I was happy to head back to the safe part of town after grabbing the shots I wanted. Wish I had a crepe right now! Viva Le France! ..the effect on the pic was done in Photo Tools 2.6!

Germany – Church Window Pane


From a church in Germany that must be kept unnamed (for particular reasons)….I always love visiting churches and taking shots of the window panes. The designs and colors are usually wonderful! I must admit as a photographer, churches are tops in my list when visiting a city….especially in Europe as they are usually old and historical. Enjoy!

Long Valley, NJ – Hacklebarney (HDR)


Summer is upon us and fall is just around the corner! That means cooler weather (depending on where you live), football and wonderful colors. This shot was from last fall at Hacklebarney State Park in Long Valley, NJ. Just a nice quiet late afternoon in the park. Hope you have some great summer vacation plans!
