Time again for my favorite doors…different city of course, but same general theme

Turnzall

This red door and brick wall combination might be my favorite of all time.. but there was quite the variety in Amsterdam..

Wonderful Red De Brakke Grond Brick 6

Some of these were good enough to make it to the Fine Art America website…where you can find copies of your favorites too..Just in time for the holiday season..

Packing – Priorities

Anytime I decide to take a trip.. day trip or longer to a new city, my first thought is “Hmmm..what cameras do I want to take?” The basic bag, sure, but what extras do I need?

Of course that depends on what I plan to shoot.. and when..

Candles along Polish Walk

Cloudy? Bright sunny mid-day? Low light?

Will I be shooting architecture, weird stuff (always have time for door shots) or people on the street?
