city hall lights (colour and b&w)

nicely lit as dusk was settling in, this is the art deco-styled buffalo city hall building. after scoping out the area around, i setlled on this vantage point to photograph it. it is a 32-story building and measures approximately 378 feet from street level to the tiptop of the tower. not only is it one of the tallest buildings in western new york, but it is also one of the tallest municipal buildings in the usa.

the niagara parkway with building lights glowing at dusk. i was crossing the street and looked to my left on the median as i saw cars travelling on either side of me. thought it would make an interesting shot and voila!

from across the lake (colour and b&w)

From Across The Lake (Colour)

From Across The Lake (B&W)

the jokes are no more. at least that is what i can tell… long the butt of many jokes, buffalo has made an amazing comeback! with its close proximity to home in st. catharines, i’ve been able to go on a few visits to explore ‘the queen city’. granted, i haven’t gone into full explorer mode yet, but what i have seen is a city on the rise… revitalized, chic and trendy neighbourhoods such as elmwood village and allentown are wonderful to visit and explore. the downtown is clean and the architecture is a feast for the eyes!

in any event, this is the buffalo skyline as photographed from across the lake in fort erie, ontario. admittedly it took a few attempts to get a good vantage point, but i think i found one! 😉

LA Night

LA Night

thanks again to adrian bellani, who took the time out to drive me around town. this was my second attempt at photographing the los angeles skyline from the griffith observatory grounds. we tried a couple of nights earlier but the entire landscape was fogged out. on this night… success – and a full moon to boot!!

keys view drive

Keys View Drive

the light was fading quickly and i wanted to get to keys view at the end of keys view drive in joshua tree national park. on the way back i was looking for a road scene to photograph and found this spot. i was hopeful of getting some light trails from oncoming traffic; i tripped the shutter for a long exposure as i saw a car approaching…

the same tree as ‘perched’ (the previous image posted); a tad later, as dusk was setting in… a mirror image produced in the digital darkroom.

from the tower

From The Tower

after my twelve day jaunt in newfoundland, i spent about a week or so with my son kicking around southern ontario. our first stop was niagara falls – one of my favourite parts of the province because it is so beautifully scenic during all seasons. here we have the american falls in the foreground and a part of the canadian horseshoe falls at the back right of the photograph, captured with  long exposure from the observation tower at niagara falls state park in western new york.
