Finally Edited: New Orleans!

So, nearly two and  a half months after we took the vacation, I finally got the photos edited and posted to my website.  It seems that about a quarter of the images I shot turned out to be ‘web-worthy’…  Not to say the others were bad shots, but rather the selection I posted were what I enjoyed the most!

We had a great time taking the vacation, and I had a lot of fun taking a lot of pictures.  There are still a few things I have left to play around with, such as some video and timelapse work, which I will get posted once I am happy with the result.  But all the stills are up and ready for everyone to enjoy!

Please feel free to comment and critique things…  I am still learning both photography itself, as well as Aperture 3.  Suggestions are always helpful!  Thank you for visiting my blog

More New Orleans photos…

So I have had a productive start to the Memorial Day weekend!  I was able to finish off another day of post processing photos taken during our trip to New Orleans.  I only have a few more days to edit, then I will have all the main photos up.

The vacation was much needed after a long winter, as well as celebrating my rehabilitation after the accident last August.  It was the first time I was able to get out and take some pictures in quite a while.  I also had to realize some new limitations as I was unable to move the way I used to, so some angles were just unobtainable.

The trip was a success as Stacey and I had a great time, the sun and warmth did wonders for spirit (and leg!), but also really got us thinking about leaving Alaska at some point, sooner than later…

Blast from the past: Bears at Katmai…

So, quite a few years ago, I was quite lucky and took a trip to remote Alaska.  I stayed at an amazing fishing lodge on the Agulowak River.  While there, a group of us were able to take a flight over to the Katmai National Park which is known for bears!

Bears!

It was an amazing and memorable trip, and an experience of a lifetime…  The adrenaline rush of walking in bear country, knowing that, without question, a bear was within 100 yards of you at any given time, is a feeling that you can’t get anywhere else, doing anything else.  While still relatively new to photography, I think that a few photos actually turned out OK!  Enjoy…
