A return to DC for this Top 200 Photo photo #13 is: This is another photo that’s featured in the blog’s header. In case you don’t know, this is The White House, the mansion where the President of the United States of America lives. As I was thinking about what to write for this photo, […]
Another Top 200 Photo photo #14 is: I was looking for stuff around the house to photograph (something you have to do if you don’t live in a big city) and decided to use my wife’s wedding ring and a wedding anniversary gift I’d given her. I thought it was a pretty neat arrangement and […]
Another explosive Top 200 Photo photo #15 is: It’s pretty funny to have this photo of firecrackers appear right above the photo of fireworks. After all, it’s just a mini-version of the same thing. While I’ve been to a ton of Vietnamese weddings and this is the only one that had firecrackers – I was […]
Back to Brooklyn for today’s Top 200 Photo photo #16 is: This photo is also featured on the Pixel-Peeper site for the Sigma 10-20mm (B&H link). I’d taken photos of fireworks before, but they seemed to be missing something compared to other photos I’d seen. Then I learned that many times (although not always) these […]
Back to London for this Top 200 Photo photo #17 is: When I went to England in 2006 the Iraq War was in the middle of the worst period for American and allied deaths. This bunch of protest signs was sitting across from Parliament. The interesting thing is that no one was there guarding them, […]
Unfortunately, this isn’t the 13th most viewed photo in the Top 200 Photos photo #18 is: triscadecaphobia (also spelt Triskaidekaphobia) is the fear of the number 13. I don’t have triskaidekaphobia – I am not paralyzed on Friday the 13th. However, I do get bad vibes from the number whenever I see it. On the […]
A rainbow in today’s Top 200 Photo photo #19 is: Until I went to the Grand Canyon and saw an awesome rainbow there, this was the only photograph I had of a rainbow. I was going to a work breakfast when I was working at P&G and when I got out of my car it […]
I feature in today’s Top 200 Photo photo #20 is: When I was first learning about stroboscopic images, I wanted to do something with humans, not just bouncing balls and scissors. It would be a while before I could get Dave doing martial arts. So I tried a few things, but it was hard to […]
Dave features again in this Top 200 Photo photo #21 is: I finally figured out the right number of flash pulses so that the separate images of David could be distinguished. I think it was the best photo we came up with that night. And so, we as are about to enter the top 20 […]
Another Otakon photo in this Top 200 Photo photo #22 is: This photo was taken on the first time I discovered Otakon in Baltimore. We were just walking around Baltimore and noticed cosplayers here and there. At first I thought it was just a strange group of friends. But when we kept seeing more and […]
Back to the state fair for this Top 200 Photo photo #23 is: I’d seen pigs at fairs before, but this is the first time I’d ever seen piglets feeding. It’s pretty crazy to have so many babies feeding at once.
Water drops again in this Top 200 Photo photo #24 is: It’s another photo of water droplets creating ripples. However, there’s one key difference here. It was actually used (via the Creative Commons license) as the source of ripples for three different images. Check them out here: image 1 (http://www.worth1000.com/entries/545069/) image 2 (http://www.worth1000.com/entries/549272/) image 3 […]
Cornell once again for today’s Top 200 Photo photo #25 is: Once again, it’s the Pre-Dragon Day Runners previously featured here(link).
Another Photoshop creation in this Top 200 Photo photo #26 is: I created this during my earlier Photoshop period. It’s called “How the Ad Industry Sees Us”. I really like it a lot and I think it still stands on its own as a statement.
Cornell again for this Top 200 Photo photo #27 is: I previously featured the writing desks you can see at the very bottom of this photo. This is a wider view of the Andrew White reading room in Uris Library at Cornell. It has a somewhat magical and surreal feel to it. Part of it […]
