Somedays it’s best to put on the rose colored glasses and just go with what you got.  Fog and cloudy skies greeted the sunrise today. It’s the 100th anniversary of Japan’s cherry blossom gift to our Nation. The Intercontinental Willard Hotel  celebrated with hallways lined in lovely pink blossoms. Maybe next year I will get […]

‘Twas the night before championship Sunday and all through the town, not a single light was yellow, but rather shades of purple abound.  A fresh blanket of snow, perfect football weather they say, anticipation fills our city, Baltimore is ready for game day!

I am often asked on the job “So, what do you like to shoot for yourself, you know, when your not working?” Well, I love shooting all sorts of great stuff. This week it was the Australian themed supper hosted by Chef’s Expressions.   The Land Down Under Wine Supper took place at the lovely Gramercy […]

The best part about winter is leaving it all behind for an adventure somewhere warm and tropical. Cozumel Mexico is just that kind of place. With a new underwater camera in my left hand and my SLR fisheye in the right, it was time for some fun in the sun and water! Bob Marley Beach […]
