A couple of weeks ago we were checking out the old Lorton Reformatory which is being converted to condos, yes, you read that right, condos. On the way out I captured this image of a turtle making the long slow climb back to the old prison site. In the background you can see the tops of some of the old prison buildings. Please see a second photo below. Read more
This past weekend the Savageman Triathlon took place in Western Md. I was not there this year but I thought it would be a great time to share a photo I shot 3 years ago when I did cover the event. It is a great event to attend if you are a photographer.

Look below for a small sampling of some of the events I have seen. The event continues thru Wednesday. For more information on the NVSO please visit http://www.nvso.us Read more
Photographing fall colors reminds me a little of playing a slot machine. You never know from year to year what you are in for. One autumn may provide dramatic saturated hues while in other years you may end up seeing muted shades of yellow or red. Please see second photo below. Read more
The more time I spend in Pittsburgh the more I am of the opinion that the Steel City is one of the most photogenic towns in the country. How high on my list is it? I would include it in my top three, with Boston, 2, and San Francisco, number one. Two of my favorite vantage points are on Mount Washington and from the window of a Just Ducky Tours duck boat.
The shot above of downtown Pittsburgh was taken through a window in the Monongahela Incline toll house on Mount Washington. The shot below was also taken atop Mount Washington. The city has some great lines and patterns. Please see below for more photos and text. Read more
