This moose didn’t seem to be too concerned about me taking pictures. The other creatures actually enjoyed it (giving me some practice with action shots).

I caught these folks napping in the same park in Paris – I guess the afternoon sunshine made everyone a bit sleepy. Wish it were that warm here, now…
I love going to the Sounders games in Seattle: 40,000+ fans, standing room only, flags flying, choruses echoing through the stadium, fireworks, and some pretty good soccer, too.
The dad seemed to enjoy the video more than his young son. Still, they were glued to the iphone for quite a while, oblivious to the rest of the world.

I took pictures in an old factory today, using it as a giant studio. Got to practice with lighting quite a bit. That’s why I look so pleased.

This lady clearly enjoyed checking the menu items at a local bookstore cafe.

Despite rain delays, the stands were packed for the Federer match. Even people on the other court tried to get a peek of the match:
The stands were full to the very top:
Standing room only:
Caught a few couples showing off their moves at the local Fred Astaire Dance Studio.
This scene reminded me of a Vermeer, who was an expert at taking a mundane subject (girl filling a jug, woman doing needlepoint) and making it look absolutely stunning. Caught in a local Mexican restaurant (which explains the skull in the background).
My son and his buddy after finishing the Spartan Sprint in Washougal, WA. One hour and forty minutes of running, jumping, and crawling through mud! I did this race with them as a last hurrah before they go to college in a few weeks.

The sign is clearly telling her where to go…
And can you call it ‘Street Photography’ when you shoot indoors?

Or, given that canals are just as good a means of transportation as streets in other cities, maybe I should call this post ‘canal photography.’ It was a warm and sunny day, so life spilled onto the sidewalk, stairways, and boats. Click any image to see them in slideshow format:
This guy won’t get wet when it rains in Amsterdam, but how he squeezes in there is a mystery to me. You can find out more at velomobiel.ne.
This couple chose the busiest place in New York to have their wedding photos taken. Romantic, yet very frustrating for the photographer who wanted no people in the background!
I didn’t see any strollers in Amsterdam: Kids either walked with their parents or they were ferried around on bikes. And helmets? Didn’t see any of those, either. And pets of course got the same treatment.

Amsterdam offered a great opportunity to practice panning, while enjoying the variety of bicycle riders. I’m not sure how romantic all this seems when it rains, but in the summer it is enchanting to see how everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) rides their bike. And no one bothers with helmets – how wonderfully nonchalant!

Would love to be able to find the parents of this little girl, so I can give them a picture of their beautiful daughter.

Sat in Madison Park yesterday before lunch, and enjoyed an impromptu trumpet concerto while enjoying the warm weather and the view of the Flatiron Building, one of my favorite buildings in the world.

Found a few interesting shots even in such humdrum environment as a small regional airport. These were taken in Eugene, OR:
Caught in Salt Lake City airport bar. Where true cowboys still roam (Utah, that is, NOT the airport).
Took this double exposure of my son and a parking meter in Missoula, MT:

I was on just a quick visit to San Francisco last week, but it was still worthy of a few pictures. The first 3 are at the Wells Fargo Museum:
A promotion on Union Square, with lots of pretty girls handing out balloons. Caught them during their photo shoot:
Old-fashioned barber shop on Valencia Street:

Caught while walking through New York, where nobody walks slow enough to get a shot that’s sharply focused. That’s New York: you blink and you miss it.

Despite the cold weather, Times Square is teeming with tourists during the holiday season. These pictures are part of an ongoing project I’m having fun with: all the various ways people memorialize their visit to New York, and to Times Square specifically. The full series is in a gallery on my photography site.
Well, at least THIS man’s best friend. Caught this man and his dog while walking through Brooklyn – both were completely content sitting on the doorstep of their house and pursing their favorite activity – reading and people watching.

Who would have thought that the New York Police Department has time for photo opportunities? But they do, and they endure the onslaught of tourists in Times Square gracefully. This is a continuation of my Times Square series I started a few weeks ago.

I found these moments of vacation snapshots more interesting than the actual splendor (or squalor, depending on your point of view) of Times Square.

This little girl watched with envy as her bigger sister rode the carousel in Bryant Park. I hope she got her turn later.

I don’t think these two really cared whether anyone noticed. Caught on a viewing platform of New York’s High Line.
I happened upon this massive yoga session in Times Square yesterday. Unfortunately the organizers didn’t know that it would be 95 degrees at 7pm. Nobody seemed to mind though, and for an hour, Times Square was an oasis of peace.
The surroundings didn’t take anything away from this couple’s enjoyment of their ice cream. Captured in New York, 18th Street.

Even a small Memorial Day parade as the one in our town (Clinton, CT) is a great opportunity to honor our fallen heroes.

3 days at the US Open provided lots of photo opportunities, but I had more fun playing with the colors of the crowd in attendance.
I shot this while on Long Beach in Long Island,NY playing volleyball with my colleagues. Over 1000 people congregate every summer evening to play.
Someone is definitely enjoying the gorgeous summer evening! Shot in Clinton Marina, 20 minutes after sunset.
I shot these 2 girls and their dog a few summers ago in Clinton, CT. My favorite picture from that summer.
No comments necessary. No better place to be on a Sunday morning.

Is this little girl dreaming of her own wedding, or just she just hungry?
