First Look Photo: City Architecture

February 7, 2018

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.

Here’s a view of downtown Portland during a snow storm.

Photo Friday: Night Shot

December 8, 2017

The beautiful part of working at night is the opportunities for night photography.  It’s the type of photography that isn’t overdone, because most people are settled in their homes when I’m on my way into work.

This shot is of the park that goes under the Casco Bay Bridge.  It reminds me of the older sepia landscapes, and only a few blue lights in the background betrays that feeling.

With the recent super moon, I finally had the opportunity to photograph the full moon with my 300 mm lens.

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.

This is an appetizing building with a tasty history.

Photo Friday: Night Landscape

October 13, 2017

Landscape photography is photographing a space in which the space itself becomes the subject.  The space can be as vast as a desert or ocean, or miniature like the head of a pin.  It just has to be a space.

Today’s picture was taken off the top of the Casco Bay Bridge.  I took it at night as a fog rolled in.

I love the glow the street light cast on this sidewalk.

Today’s photo is of a place that seems mostly inactive until the sun goes down.  One side of the street is made up entirely of bars.

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.
