Hot Rods on the Street

Hot Rods 2007  04

Every July, the Ohio Expo Center is the home of the GOODGUYS National Street Rod Conventions.

GOODGUYS

The streets of Columbus start to look like the Fifties, with flame hooded hot rods, cruising up and down High Street.

For a photographer in Columbus, the streets are awash in color. It is an awesome sight.

Independence Day - The Fourth of July

Boom  02
Red, White and BOOM! in Columbus, Ohio.

My favorite holiday of the year.
For one day this divided country forgets our differences.

Blue states & red states are United States.

The Spirit of America is reflected across the country.

Asian Festival

Family of Fans

Here is a new photo from the Asian festival in Columbus on Memorial Day weekend. There are many volunteer opportunities and I was fortunate to be able to volunteer as a photographer for the event. There was great dancing, singing and musical performances. The costumes were stunning.

Dykes & Canals

Canal in Delft

All the water in the canals, held back by the dykes, is the reason for all of the windmills. A windmill can raise the water level by 10 feet (3 meters). So many times a poulder (reclaimed land) has several levels of dykes and windmills to raise the water to sea level.

Riding on train, it is interesting so see houses with a 6 foot high dyke holding back a canal in their back yard. The water level is above their first floor windows!

Muenster has a beautiful Castle.  It looks more like a Palace.  Behind the castle is a fantastic Botanical Garden.

A Columbus Photographer in Germany


Here are Ursula & Michael Frühwald in the Schlossgarten, the Castle Garden, in Münster Germany.  There are formal gardens and a botanical garden, located walking distance from downtown.

Ursula & Michael are great tour guides.  They made a visit to Münster all the more interesting.

CAHS Performance of Macbeth

This is my favorite take from the entire performance.  Lady Macbeth at her most diabolical.
It was a stunning performance by a high school troupe.  Minimalist in costumes and set design, it was Shakespeare to the max.  The dialogue was faithful in its reproduction.

Portrait Photography, Columbus, Ohio

Stacia again.

This time in the shade of a building.  She's at the edge of the shadow, so that as she leans over, the sunlight catches her hair.

There's a reflector in front of her, to provide fill.

OSU Graduation Portrait, Columbus OH


Congratulations to Nadine Kamiya on the occasion of her graduation from the Ohio State University on March 16, 2008.

A feat, in and of itself, Nadine's graduation was extra blessed by the attendance of her four children, including the 11 month old twin girls.

B&W Portrait Photography, Columbus, OH


I don't shoot Black & White very often, but sometimes a scene just calls for it.

That's the way this one was for me.

This is Jenny at Image Makers Studio in Pontiac, MI.

Stacia in the Plaza

Arches are a repeated theme for me.

Having the opportunity to photograph a great model with an arch in the background is even better.

Stacia is Lady Legs on Model Mayhem.

NY Travel Photography - Soho from Columbus, OH


When in NY, my favorite art gallery to visit has to be Louis K Meisel Gallery, on Prince Street in Soho.  There are some amazing finds there, although some are bigger than my walls.  Maybe it's time to look at a loft, for those over size pieces.

Springtime. Finally!




The Butterflies agree, although this one was inside the Franklin Park Consevatory.  It made it to 78 degrees today.  It felt like Silk Degrees. 

Unfortunately, the forecast calls for rain all weekend.
