This past weekend, my wife and I went to Washington D.C. for a little weekend getaway and to enjoy our nation’s capital. When we go to cities, we like to plan some things, but for the most part, we just like to walk around and explore the city and not stick to a set itinerary.
Of course, that being said, the photo of the week is of one of the most visible landmarks in DC, the Washington Monument.
I really like this picture because of how the light of the sun is reflecting off the side of the monument, but only half of the side, because of the cloudy weather.
A couple of other pictures that I considered for photo of the week are below:
Also, I did take some comparative pictures with my new iPhone and old iPhone during the trip so I am hoping to get that post out during this upcoming weekend. Until then, enjoy your week!
Since my last iPhone photo of the week post, I have a new phone. I have upgraded from the iPhone SE to the new iPhone 8 Plus and wow, what a difference it makes.
I think I might take them both out this weekend and then write a comparison post to highlight just how much more capable the 8 Plus is.
For my photo of the week, I chose this picture of the Conference Center in Roanoke. This definitely wasn’t the best composed shot I took this week, but I really like the dynamic range and how the leaves have started to change on the tree to the left. This picture is exactly how the phone captured it with no additional processing done by me.
Back in August, I thought I would start blogging regularly again. Well, that didn’t happen. I got halfway through the month doing really well on all the goals I had set for myself, then I started traveling for work and getting busier and I let my goals slip away. So, now that it is a new month, it’s time to start again.
For those of you who still read my posts, thank you for your patience! I hope I can say that I am back for at least the next few months.
For now, here are a couple of pictures of downtown Roanoke. I hope to get another post up this week.
The featured picture on this post shows the Amtrak platform being constructed for passenger rail service to return to Roanoke on October 31st!
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 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.
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!
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.
