Autumn 2014

We took the back roads up to Boone, North Carolina. It was my parents and me. At this pit stop, I took a bit of a walk, perhaps further than I should have left them alone. But just far enough to find this bridge and this magical scene.

Red Headed Woodpecker

I barely noticed this bird on top of a dead tree, about a hundred yards away. Even with the Tamron 150-600mm, I couldn’t tell what kind of bird it was, except that there was some red. From all the pictures I took four came out clear enough.

Yeopim Creek

I took this photo during a trip that we took to Lake Mattamuskett with some folks from NC State University. Although I took my Nikon with me, I’d left its battery at home. So all of my photos from that trip were taken with my iPhone. I used a version of this photo as my first canvas print, which came out pretty well.

Captured Delivery Guy

This was a lucky capture. I’d been waiting on a colleague for supper somewhere around the North Point on Hong Kong island. I’d just had an educational ride on one of Hong Kong’s city trains, and was just standing around and taking pictures of anything that caught my eye. I entered this particular picture in a photography contest held by the Raleigh News & Observer and won an honorable mention.
