View from Chrysler Building

The Chrysler Building is beautiful, and I really love when it’s in some of my panoramas. Then I got the chance to actually shoot a panorama from a upper floor… the view was spectacular. I was debating how I can turn this into a horizontal pano, but in the end it became a square pano.

Sugarhill Gas Station, Harlem

My original plan for this panorama was the gas station, but I couldn’t find an interesting angle to it. On the other hand, the mansion on the corner just looked too strange to not take a panorama. The Victorian mansion is supposedly one of New York’s finest examples, built in 1886, and just recently sold, …

Bloomberg Building (test shoot)

Those two panoramas are just location shots for a shoot I am planning later this year. The Bloomberg Building is incredible interesting, and incredible difficult to photograph.

West Village and Hudson Park

NY Advertising Agencies

The area between the West Village and the Holland Tunnel is home to some of New York’s ad agencies, especially Euro (on the left) and Saatchi (on the right). Since this is a 180 degree panorama, I was struggling a bit with the composition: panoramic, or wide angle? I think for this the wide angle …

Woolworth Building from Park Place

All three panos are from the same shoot, I just couldn’t decide which one I like better. For one, the Woolworth Building is just New York’s second prettiest old high-rise, so it would be cruel to cut it out, on the other side, the WTC buildings are coming up, and they are just ultra modern …

Cop Cot in Central Park (II)

This is another attempt to photograph the cop cot. The first one was beautiful, snow and everything, so I was hoping to recreate some of the magic, but I guess this scene is really difficult with out snow, so I will give it another try in winter, given that we will ever see snow again …

East River Roundabout

The East River Roundabout park is easily the most unknown and inaccessible park in NYC. It’s only use at the moment is a dog run. The structure is an old garbage transfer station, and the sculpture on top of it was designed/installed in 1995 by Alice Aycock. The NYC parks department has a bit more …

Enchanted Rock State Park, Texas

After leaving Fredericksburg, which was a bit of a disappointment, we made our way back to Austin. The day before we read about the state park, but we put it on the maybe list… Then we saw the sign on the street, and spontaniously decided to visit the park, even if it was just for …

Benini Sculpture Ranch in Johnson City, TX

We stumbled more or less through a happy accident onto the Benini Sculpture Ranch in/near Johnson City, TX. We were walking though Johnson City on Sunday afternoon, found only one art gallery open, chatted with the owner who strongly suggested that we try to get to the sculpture ranch as long as there is some …

Texas Long Horn, by Bettye Hamblen Turner

Bettye is currently exhibiting a couple of her metal sculptures at the Benini Sculpture Ranch in/near Johnson City, TX, including two of her magnificent Texas Long Horns. One of them you can see right next to the highway, the other one (see below) is in the ranch, some 5 miles off the highway. I personally …

Johnson City, TX Christmas Lights

Johnson City looked like a small Texas town during the day, but transformed itself after sunset into a christmas light spectacular, with everybody competing who has the most lights out, and the obvious winner was of course the local utility company, who decorated a whole grove of trees with lights, Hill County Style…

Austin, TX: River Sunset and Kettle Restaurant

On our road trip through Texas we landed in Austin and spent one and a half day, barely enough to get a good impression of the city. I had the feeling that we had not enough time and everything felt a bit rushed, but at least I managed to shoot some panoramas. Of course I …

Austin, TX Parking Lot

We were strolling around in downtown Austin that afternoon, and it was very quiet, not like a couple of hours later when the nightlife starts. The clouds were just too interesting to not shoot a quick hand-held pano.

Houston/Baytown Gas Station

One of the fascinating aspects of Houston was the clustering of well known staples, like Starbucks, Wafflehouse etc. This panorama is an attempt of a panorama… I wanted to capture the handful of large signs, but I should have probably spent more time to get it right.

Goose Creek Memorial Highschool in Baytown, TX

It was just a very curious evening, and we decided to simply walk around and see how Baytown looks at night, and see if there is anything interesting to photograph. I have to admit that this might not be the most successful panorama that I have ever taken.
