Iron and Brick

photo available at etsy.com

This photo follows my  posts from other cities showing my obsession with

street lamps.  This was taken in New York’s Financial District.  There is certainly

nothing fancy about this particular light, but I like how the background contains

other favorites of mine: architecture and fire escapes.

Through the alley

available at etsy.com

I don’t know why, but I love alleys.  Not the scary ones you are supposed to avoid at

night, but ones with quaint little shops or bars hidden away from the rest of the city.

I guess its the mystery, or the challenge of seeing what you can find in that alley.  And

of course I love this alley because it has street lamps!  In earlier posts, I mention my

obsession with streetlamps 🙂  This photo was taken in Lucerne, Switzerland.  Lucerne

is a pretty town nestled in the Alps, with the Reuss River going through it, and Lake

Lucerne. The town is fully of these alleyways which contain quite a bit of shopping

for a city this size, I think.  I believe there are at least 3 H&M stores here!

Sunset San Diego

available on etsy.com

Last year my husband took a business trip to San Diego.  He wanted me to join him for the weekend

after the meetings.  I kept an eye out for air fare sales and really lucked out when I found  dirt cheap

tickets.  If you are not subscribed to http://www.airfarewatchdog.com, I highly recommend it.  You put

in what cities you want to fly, and they send you emails when regular fares fall.  Neither one of us had

ever been to San Diego, but heard it was beautiful.  One night we went across the bay to Coronado Island.

We timed it so we could catch the reflection of the sunset in the buildings of the city.  Afterwards, we

ate at http://www.ilfornaio.com/.  OMG…the best pasta I ever tasted!  You could tell it was homemade.

I really enjoyed my meal there.  I also recommend that.  If you like the photo I took, you can also see it at

Mystery Window

This window is from a  building in Chicago.  We actually were on top of a parking garage, getting photos of the El Train below.

It just made me wonder why one shade was open, and the others closed, who lives there, what are they doing now..etc.  And I love

fire escapes in my photos.  So anyway, I thought it

was interesting.  I also have this up in my shop 🙂

Tiny Empire

me and Mr. Grimaldi

available at etsy.com

I had been to New York a couple times, but never to Brooklyn.  The day we went was beautiful.  We ended up going twice, once before sunrise, and again later in the day to explore and take night shots.  We were on this street and I just thought it was so cool to see a tiny Empire State Building under the arch of the Manhattan Bridge.  I took a few angles, and this was my favorite.  It ended up being printed in a University calendar, and sold at a charitable auction.  If you go to Brooklyn, there’s this awesome pizza place called Grimaldi’s under the Brooklyn Bridge.  There is always a line it seems, but it’s worth it.  I even got a picture with the owner and his car parked next to the restaurant.  This angled Manhattan bridge photo could be yours too!

Travel Tip-Chicago

available at etsy.com

Getting good pictures of the Bean in Millennium Park is difficult with so many people around.  If you would like to see it without anyone around, get up before the sun rises!  Not only is it nice and peaceful, you get an awesome reflection of the sunrise in the bean itself.  See this photo on Etsy.com.

My first awesome photo

for sale at Etsy.com

This is my favorite photo from Chicago.  We haven’t had the camera very long, so Chicago was “practice” with it.  I love cityscapes at night.  We went up to the observation area of the Hancock building to take photos.  I was hoping it was open like it is at the Empire State Building, but it wasn’t.  There was a fence blocking the view, and I couldn’t get decent pictures with it there.  So we went inside, and I had no choice but to take photos through the window.  There

was a reflection from the cafe behind me, so I had Jim put his had above the camera while the lens was up against the glass.  This and a few others turned out great.  I sold this print at an art crawl event, and it was published in the Vanderbilt University 2010 calendar.  I also have it hanging on my wall!  You can own it too available at Etsy.com.
