Today I saw that Bodie Island Lighthouse will reopen after several years of much needed restoration. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is probably the most well know but Bodie is my favorite. I look forward to visiting/photography it again soon…
Speaking of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse… I made this photography about a year ago while spending several days in Hatteras Village.
The bags are packed and I am ready for my second trip to Old Car City early tomorrow morning. I am excited to spend time making pictures with friends for the next several days. My first visit to Old Car City was memorable and I know this one will be too!
When I think about New York City, I tend to think about architecture and the many iconic buildings in Manhattan. My favorite building in New York is the Flatiron Building. During construction, many people believed it’s wedge shaped footprint was not strong enough to hold under the high winds exerted on buildings of this height. It was a very modern building for the time.
So far so good: 100 years later the Flatiron is still standing tall. I view the Flatiron as New York City’s underdog. I can think of several times in my life when I was the underdog. I may not have come out on top every single instance but I have also overcome circumstances when some believed I would fail. Can you relate? The Flatiron reminds me of those victories.
During the 2011 Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC I visited the Martin Luther King Jr memorial for the first time.
Want to get a unique shot the next time you are at a recognizable location? Photograph the details or smaller parts. In this case, I approached this image like I would if I was taking a portrait.
