Prada at the Aria

I took this shot towards the end of my little photowalk on our last morning in Las Vegas...  This is the Prada store at the Aria.  I really liked the design and thought it would make a cool image including the sign..  There were some derelicts wandering about and that would have made quite an ironic shot with them included, but my deal was to just get out of there and get back to the room.  I was pretty tired at this point and really did not want to deal with anymore people asking for directions.  Although, there was a lady derelict on one of the bridges spanning Las Vegas Blvd who wished me a Happy Easter..  That was nice in a weird/sad sort of way...

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Hoover Dam Vert Pano

Time to post another shot from our Vegas trip about 3 mos ago..  This is the view from the top of Hoover Dam looking at the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.  Just looking down, doesn't that make you think that you could just skateboard down to the bottom?  It's only around 700 feet high, so one could get going rather fast!

This shot is comprised of a collage of about 8 or so shots encompassing everything, all taken in portrait orientation and stitched together in Lightroom.  It's not a traditional pano, but very similar.

I hope you enjoy it and thanks for dropping by! As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Verlander Pitches 02

This is another shot I took of Justin Verlander as he pitched during a Tigers v Astros game last year at Minute Maid Park in Houston.  It's similar to the shot I posted last year.  I think this must be from the same sequence of shots during the same pitch.  Not sure which one I like better..  Anyway, Mr. Verlander's getting a little older now so not sure how much longer he'll be able to pitch well for the Tigers, but he's a workhorse for sure.

As far as processing goes, I cropped the original, used Fuji's Classic Chrome film simulation and added a little vignette.  To see the differences, roll your mouse over the image and you'll see the original straight from the camera and when you roll off, you'll see the final image with the changes I made.

I hope enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Cruise Ship Under Mountains

Going back into the archives for this shot...  This was from our trip to Alaska a couple of years ago.  We were coming back in to Whittier after a tour of the fiords and glaciers.  However, I'm not totally sure if this was from the tour from hell when Eileen got sick after a half hour, or the the tour prior to that en-which it was calm the whole day.  I think it was the latter by the look of the water here.

It's amazing how big the mountains are especially when you see such a huge cruise ship as this Princess boat dwarfed by the mountains in the background.  Can't wait to go back!
