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. ;-)

salem

A couple of weeks ago I spent a day driving about Massachusetts and made my way to Salem, MA. having recently relocated to the Boston area, Salem was a spot I thought would be cool to check out.

Surprisingly enough I didn’t discover too many witches, but I did find a wand shop ;).

Near downtown Salem, I found a park called Salem Willows Park. Beautiful views, a small beach front, a pier and more. I spent quite a bit of time here, especially as I’ve been missing Alki Beach in Seattle.

I snapped these images with the ever so lovely Fuji X100s.

I actually took more photos in this area than the downtown area. Once downtown I switched to shooting more with my iPhone. Including the Old Burying Ground Cemetery and a beach. Lots to explore within a mile or so radius. I’m sure I’ll visit there again!
