Room With A View

After 19 years at MUW, and countless university trips to hotels and motels across the South, THIS is the room I get in New Orleans.....22nd floor, CORNER room. This is the stuff photographers dream of, but never get. Well, I got it! And you get this wonderful HDR photo of downtown New Orleans. Composited in Photoshop CS5's HDR PRO, from 5 images. Oh, how I love my new 1D Mark II!

Global Warming in the South....

Not since my childhood (which took place from the Mid-Seventies to the Mid-Eighties) can I remember snow like we got tonight in Columbus. That white, fluffy, beautiful snow that you just don't usually see in the South. And what perfect timing it was.....I just received my brand new Canon 5D MK II and my 16-35 lens a few days ago. So we ventured out into town tonight to get some photos. An opportunity like this doesn't come along very often here. In a few short months, it will be 94 degrees at around 100% humidity. I shall the look back on these photos fondly at that time and possibly yearn.....
