First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry

This building was next to the one we had meetings in on Thursday and Friday.  1774 was a while back and it's still functioning.  This is a three shot vertical panorama.  I did a light HDR on it.

Philidephia - Liberty Bell

Here's another three shot HDR from our trip to Philadelphia last week.  We hiked over and the building was closed so this is the best I could do for a shot of the liberty bell.  Independence Hall was under going renovation so we struck out getting decent pictures of that.  My buddy Layne had the park ranger come over and tell him he couldn't use his tripod.  I thought this was a free country!?

I spent the last week in Philly and took my camera.  I couldn't fit my tripod in my luggage and I'm not sure I wanted to lug it with me every where.  On Monday night we took a walk over to the liberty bell and independence hall.  On the way back to the hotel I grabbed this picture of the new Jewish Center under construction.  Thought it was pretty cool.  BTW this is another hand held 3 shot HDR

I love this picture.  It was taken by my daughter as I rode in my first LOTOJA.  Cars and bike were allowed to be a little closer in those days (2002).  It's a bigger event these days.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

I was scanning a few pictures today.  I'm a little disappointed in the quality of the scans, but the pics are precious.  This one is of Tyler smelling the flowers at my in-laws house a few years ago in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

Rough Life

I was going through some old black and white film and found this picture.  I'm pretty sure it's a tree - you think your life is rough look at this poor tree.  I have no idea when or where I took this.

I Want to Ride My Bicycle

I'm doing a lot of bike riding lately, as a result the camera doesn't come out like it should.  So...I thought I share some of my rides.  Here's today's.  I wanted to see how it worked publishing a ride from the Garmin Site also.

Fungus Fun

While out taking pictures a few years ago I happened across this fungus.  I had my camera loaded with black and white film the result were an interesting pattern
