I have not posted a post in a few weeks. I have been busy with work and of course going out and shooting. I have been on top of getting through the files and then of course back in Mid-May I took a camping road trip through Utah, Arizona and Nevada. It was a fantastic trip through the West seeing Arches, Canyon lands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, Zion, North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Death Valley. Lots of hiking and photography although I know I could have taken better shots on the trip but I was so wrapped up in trying to enjoy the hiking and camping rather then worry about if the photo I captured was perfect. Not only that I could not capture what you can see with your eyes out there. It was spectacular scenery and it’s hard to show or tell people about it with out them being there. Now that I am back home I will get back into focusing my skills as a photographer and hopefully get in more hiking an camping in the Mountains of Virginia.
This photo was taken walking on Browns Island downtown Richmond, Virginia at sun set. Taken with a X-Pro2
I was out with the photography group in the city January and got this nice long exposure with a bright moon behind some clouds. This is the Old City Hall of Richmond. It is beautiful building and was almost taken down when they needed a new one, thankfully they use it for office space and kept it around.

Great Falls Park is located in Fairfax County in Virginia. It is the great falls of the Potomac River and a sight to see.

I was going through some old photographs on the laptop as I am trying to get better at storing and editing them and found these. In the fall time I try really hard to go out every other evening down in the fan or downtown and shoot fall colors and what not.

Myself taking a self Portrait. I had come across this Yashica JP with a Yashinon 50mm f/2 lens at a store for a few dollars. It looked ok I cleaned it up a bit and this was from the first few frames. Shot with Delta 100 pushed to 400. Right into the mirror.
