iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 13)

Trying to get back in the swing of things and back into the routine of posting weekly. It is fall here in Lynchburg, Virginia, and as of this post, it is past peak when it comes to the changing color of the landscape.

This week’s iPhone Photo of the Week is taken at my school. Liberty University’s campus is split by a four-lane divided highway. This picture was taken from the eastern portion of campus looking towards the main academic building, Demoss Hall. I used the HDR setting on my iPhone to make sure that I was able to get enough exposure on the campus while keeping the beauty of the fall sky and the color of the leaves in the foreground.

It’s Been A While

Wow…It’s been almost 5 months since my last post.

While I can’t say that my only reason for not posting is being busy, it has been a big part. During my summer, I worked a lot and at one point was working over 40 hours a week (which was new to me). It was a rewarding experience.

Since my last post, not only have I started a new semester, but just under two weeks ago I proposed to my beautiful girlfriend, Ashley, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and she said yes!

Here are some pictures to recap what has gone on since my last appearance in the blogosphere.

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 12)

It’s been a busy week and I have not been blogging as much as I would like, but I have enough time to do a quick iPhone Photo of the Week post. This picture comes from a bike ride I took with my parents last week around Pittsburgh. A wedding ceremony had just then taken place and you can see the bride in the bottom of the picture. I chose this as the photo of the week because of the church and I tried to use the HDR setting on my phone as well.

My Kind of Town

Last week, Ashley, my parents and I went into downtown Pittsburgh. My parents were doing some genealogical research so Ashley and I did some more wandering around downtown. We walked over to the north side for a little bit and walked along the river. There was a chance of rain so the lighting was pretty good for pictures. Ashley and I really enjoy spending time together exploring and taking pictures so it was a really nice time. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures I was able to take during our most recent visit to Pittsburgh.

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 11)

I took very few pictures with my phone this past week, but today as a storm rolled through I took a panorama of the sky from the back deck and decided it would have to do. I hope you enjoy the way the sky looks as storm clouds come through and I’d love to see your pictures of storms as well. Comment a link to a picture below and I’ll check it out!

Monochrome Monday: Week 5

My submission for Monochrome Monday this week is a picture of the City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is currently the tallest all stone (masonic) building in the world and it is definitely a beautiful structure. I was able to take this picture a couple weeks ago when my family, Ashley, and I went to Philly for a few hours. Ashley and I were able to walk around for an hour and a half and take pictures. I really like the way the lighting worked out in this one and how well the contrast looks in monochrome as well. The original picture is included in the gallery at the end of the post.

Amusement Park Action

Earlier this week, in my post about the walk Ashley and I took to take pictures around Ocean City, I posted a few pictures of the boardwalk amusement parks that were closed during the week. On Saturday, our last day in Ocean City, Ashley and I were able to visit those parks twice. First during the day and again at night. My favorite picture from during the day would probably be this one of the chair swing with the ferris wheel in the background. I like the brightness of the day and it looks like the little girl on the swing is enjoying herself.

We were also able to take a ride on the big ferris wheel and get a couple pictures of the view and enjoy our first ever ferris wheel ride together.
