badlands

Badlands National Park is yet another especially amazing national park here in the states. On my recent journey back to the east coast, I was compelled to make a stop at this park.

Seeing images of a place is only gives you a small sense of the space. Unless you can integrate elements to help with scale or something, it’s honestly really best experienced in person. Here’s to hoping these vistas inspire at least one of you to get out there!

Recently I’ve been playing about with a new app called Storehouse. It’s for the iPhone and allows you to create photo essays, incorporating video or stills. It’s pretty slick so far, we shall see how it takes hold in the realm of social media. I put together a few of my iPhone images from the Badlands into a story on Storehouse, so if you’d like to see some of the iPhone images from this trek, check them out here.

Outside of that, below are a handful of images I took with the Fujifilm X100S. Edited with a combination of software like Lightroom 4 and Alien Skin Software Exposure 6.

All of these and more are available as prints, if you’re so inclined… Check out the full gallery over at my Smugmug site.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check this out!

Yellowstone National Park is approximately 3500 miles of natural wonder. From geysers to rivers to trees to mountains, it’s quite a site to behold.

I’d like to let the photos speak for themselves here and leave whomever reads this with just one thought:

Our world is vast, explore it. :-)

These were all captured on the Fujifilm X100S.

If you really feel drawn to any of these images and would like to own a print, that is completely possible! Check out my Smugmug page to see higher resolution versions or to purchase prints. ;-)

fairhaven

Living in a new place presents a variety of obstacles.

1. Learning new roads
2. Finding a fave coffee shop, best shoe store etc…
3. Making new friends.

Those are just a few. After being in Seattle for almost 8 years, making some great friends, being involved in a massive photo community, starting over has been a bit of a challenge.

Thanks to the realm of social media, Facebook and such I’ve been able to connect with photographers and creatives around the world. Even a couple in the Boston area. As a result of this a friend, I’d not yet met in real life, invited me to a photowalk in a little coastal town called Fairhaven. It was a great opportunity to finally meet him in person and perhaps connect with a couple of other Boston area mobile photographers.

So I went, met some folks, walked for a few miles, and snapped some photos.

These were taken with the fancy lil Fujifilm X100S.

I also took some photos with my iPhone, they’re over on here if you’d like to check them out! ;)

Nice little place to explore, ships, docks, water etc… and that’s only part of it. I’d love to go back and see what else this little town has to offer.
