One of a number of shots of the new highest skyscraper in Europe.
On a beautiful winter day I walked with my sons to the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre and took a lateral shot which I quite like. i gave it an old timey processing without overdoing it for what I hope is an interesting but not too classic postcard look.
As I was walking alongside a run path on the western short of Manhattan I stumbled upon these old wooden piles and thought that the old and new contrast with the Jersey City waterfront would be interesting…
When I crossed the eastern part of San Fransciso by car I never imagined stumbling on a church that wouldn’t look out of place in Moscow. But I did. I had to stop and shoot it…
his is the side door of the church where I got married. I love the old look and the mystery it exudes. The photo was edited with Snapseed.
I waited for nearly an hour on the river bank opposite the Bund in Shanghaï for the sun to be perfectly aligned with the two horns of that skyscraper. There are many pictures of the Dark Tower in Mordor with a similar look, hence the title.
Narrow streets and a clear landmark make for a photo opportunity. I used the Lensbaby on this one to further reinforce the direction of the eye suggested by the high contrast.
I don’t own a super wide-angle lens, but the friend I was walking around Paris with that night does, and he lent it to me for this shot of the Pyramid. It’s a classic shot, but I have to confess it’s effective…
Stavänger in Norway is a beautiful little seaside town, and the Valberget is one of its high points.
Early evening over Victoria Harbour in Hong-Kong. Now you know why everybody you see on the shore after 6 PM carries a tripod.
