Travel Bags and Baggage

Baggage - Briggs and Riley

Carrying yet more baggage … So – for the record – I hate traveling as much as I have to with my new role, and I’ve got a ton of travel coming up this year yet. My older checked baggage is getting long in the tooth and a bit ratty – needs replacement before the wheels fall […]

Oh the “fun” of business travel … [Update 24-May-2016 – more travel posted to map and text] So this year has seen a lot of travel already, and now that there have been some changes at the office, I’ll be doing a quite a bit more this year. As a way of keeping a log of where I […]

Jester and King Cake

Riverwalk Jester

Court Jester at New Orleans Riverwalk Another photo, this one of a Jester,  from our trip to New Orleans French Quarter last weekend.

St. Roch – Campo Santo

Sundial in St. Roch\'s Campo Santo, New Orleans, Lousianna

St. Roch New Orleans – Sundial Last weekend, Jen & I got some much-needed downtime and spent the weekend in New Orleans.

The HDR was created from two sets of three exposures (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2)  merged in AuroraHDR Pro and then tweaked about until I was happy […]

Saint Paul’s Cathedral, London

Saint Paul's Cathedral from the River Thames

Saint Paul’s Cathedral from the Banks of the Thames I recently returned from a business trip to London and surrounding areas, and had some free time to walk around and take photos. It was interesting to be alone in a city again, with only my camera. On this night, the Thames was at low tide, […]
