Machu Picchu

Here is another great photo from our trip to Peru.  This isn’t the typical view of Machu Picchu.  That’s probably what I like best about it.  It’s different.  MJ and I explored every angle and aspect of the wonderful “must see” location.

Pittsburgh Light Trails

Last week, Brad, Dave, Blair and I went into Pittsburgh to take advantage of the warm weather and capture some great photos.  We went to a location; we’ve never been to before for a slightly different perspective of the skyline.  I hope you like it.

Farwell Building

Last November, Blair and I got a chance to explore Detroit for a short period of time.  One of our stops was the Farwell building.  The building wasn’t the most interesting I’ve ever been in, but this central atrium was wonderful.  This building also had the most interesting access point.  It involved rain, climbing, tight spaces, etc….  Anyway, I hope you like the photo.

Pittsburgh Skyline

I took this photo last summer with Michael Shilo Luzano.  I met Michael in Peru and we setup a time for him and I to shoot together a few weeks later.  We spent a good part of the day photographing many of Pittsburgh’s most popular spots.  I particularly liked this photo from that day.

Cruise Port

We did a private island tour toward the end of our time on St. Maarten.  I made the driver take us up to the top a hill, which had a gated community at the top.  We couldn’t get into the neighborhood, but we got this great view.  It was a wonderful stop on our tour that provided a view of the cruise port that most people don’t see.  I hope you enjoy it.

St. Barts Church

On our trip to St. Barts, I darted into the St. Bartholomew’s Anglican Church to capture some photos of the inside.  I ran into the Parish Administrator (Philip), who gladly allowed me access.  I was and still am appreciative because I captured this great image during those few moments.  Thanks Philip!! 

 

By the way, St. Barts is an outstanding place.   I recommend you put it on your travel bucket list.

South Pool

On our last trip to NYC, we visited the 9/11 Memorial site for the first time.  I captured a ton of photos from every angle trying to capture this wonderful memorial….at least until the anti-tripod police stopped me. 

 

This is a “must see” location for every American.

Fisher Body Plant

Here is another from the Fisher Body Plant in Detroit Michigan.  It was a fun experience and cool to see so many other photographers in the same place at the same time.  You can see my other post from this location here:  http://brook-ward.com/blog/2015/11/28/fisher-body-plant-assembly-line

Carnegie Mellon University

On a recent photo walk with Brad and Dave, we were looking for something unique.  Something that hasn’t been photographed a million times.  That’s when we decided to photograph CMU.  We got access to Baker Hall and I captured this amazing stairwell.  The security guard told me that it is the best stairwell on the campus and I think he was right.

Barry's House

The only Detroit Lions’ player in the history of the franchises, who consistently torn this place up (Pontiac Silverdome), was Barry Sanders.  Frankly….he was and is still the best running back to ever play the game.  He’d hold every running record, except he retired early.  It’s sad to see his home field in this condition.  At the same time, Ford Field is so much better than the Silverdome.  Fortunately, I had the privilege of seeing Barry play here in person, plus dozens of games on TV.

One other cool fact, not only did the Detroit Pistons play their home games in this building for a long time, but I played high school varsity basketball game on the Piston’s court in this building.  It’s an experience that I’ll never forget and therefore this building has a special meaning for me.

Empire Reflection

Last fall while in NYC, MJ and I covered a large section of Manhattan.  And of course, I photographed every moment.  I captured this photo on our 2nd night as we walked back to our hotel.  I noticed the Empire State Building reflecting off this glass skyscraper and had to capture the moment.  It’s a very artsy type of photo, which I love.  I’m guessing that this won’t be something most people like, but I like it.

Immaculate Heart Of Mary Church

This church is referred to in Polish as Kościół Matki Boskiej.  It is a historic church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, one of the city’s oldest (dedicated 1905) and largest churches.  It is located on Polish Hill and is a prime example of ‘Polish Cathedral’ style modeled on St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

I met Dave and Brad last Sunday in this area to photograph an abandoned school.  I got there a little early and decided to go inside this beautiful church.  To my surprise it was not only amazing but still had all their Christmas decorations still on display.  And they welcomed me inside and let me take all the photos I wanted.  On top of that, the abandoned school was a bust.  So I got some great photos of a great building, just not the one I expected to get inside.  I hope you like it.

Dover Beach - Barbados

During our last trip to Barbados, we stopped by this beach for dinner a few times.  There is a great Tapas restaurant there right on the boardwalk.  Both times we ate at this spot, we witnessed a great sunset.  This was my favorite of the two evenings.
