Saturday my wife and I attended the Día de los Muertos celebration held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, California. I am very pleased to announce that Edge of Humanity Magazine has published a set of my photos along with a short write up of mine about this celebration: https://edgeofhumanity.com/2017/10/30/celebrations/

Circular Fisheye Project: LA Metro Station #2

Fisheye, Photography, Southern California

So far this is my favorite circular fisheye photo. I spotted this shot while riding the escalator down to a metro station in Koreatown. A quick pop back up the stairs and I got the shot. Of course, this project is still in its early days and there are many more photos to come. I will continue to share some here periodically as it’s a good project to work on between travels.  (You can read about the origins of this project here.)

Circular Fisheye Project: LA Metro Station #1

Fisheye, Photography, Southern California

While I only live about an hour’s drive out of Los Angeles (in good traffic), parking is a nightmare. So I often use their metro to get around as parking is no longer a problem. I have found their interiors when shot with the circular fisheye lens provide some interesting semi-abstract photos.  (You can read about the origins of this project here.)

Circular Fisheye Project: Roosevelt Hotel (Interior)

Fisheye, Photography, Southern California

Took this photo inside of the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel has a rather dark interior, but shooting through a window and the fact that this lens lets in tremendous amounts of light meant I could shoot handheld. Only my second attempt photographing an interior with this lens. (You can read about the origins of this project here.)
