Not Quiet Noah's Ark

Want to build your own ark boat? Then head to the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center in Beaufort, NC. There, you can take a nine day boat building course and produce one of these. I made this shot from the visitor's gallery but I sure would like to be down on the shop floor building one of these babies. Add to bucket list: check.

Stairway to...?

I shot this while on a morning stroll at the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. I liked the hues and textures in this image.

U-505 WWII Submarine in Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

If you are ever in Chicago be sure to visit the Museum of Science and Industry. One of the most interesting exhibits for me - this captured WWII German submarine. You can take a guided tour through the sub. Be sure to watch the video documenting how the U-505 was moved from Lake Michigan across Lake Shore Drive to its specially built home in the museum.

My sister-in-law Mary told me I had to capture this garden gate at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Springwood estate in Hyde Park, NY. She was right.

Craigylynne Hotel

Constructed with Highland granite, this grand Victorian hotel is a 10-minute walk from the centre of Grantown-on-Spey in the Scottish Highlands. I used a technique created by Michael Orton (the Orton effect) to give my photo a bit of a dreamy look.
