Kennett Square: Longwood Gardens

Although December has been crazy hectic with work travel and end-of-year deadlines, photography is always a great release.  I decided a little relaxation was in order and decided to take an early Sunday morning trip to Longwood Gardens - a bit southwest of Philadelphia.  The gardens are beautiful and I can only imagine how awesome the property is in early spring with all the flowers in bloom.  Here are a couple quick shots from my trip this morning.

Philadelphia: 30th Street Station

This evening I took a trip over to Amtrak's 30th Street Station, just on the edge of Center City Philadelphia.  Situated in University City, adjacent to Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania, 30th Street Station is considered the 3rd busiest public train terminal in the United States.  The Art Deco architecture is pretty amazing and I decided to capture some shots.  While I have plenty to share, for now, I've got just a few for you.

Poughkeepsie: The Hudson River

During my trip to upstate New York I made it a point to take a quick little trip to the Hudson River banks in Poughkeepsie.  The Mid-Hudson Bridge and the Walkway Over the Hudson are great photo opportunities and I had never been down to the waterfront.  Here are a few pics from that trip.

Pawling: Nuclear Lake

I'm long overdue for a photo post.  Last month I was able to make a trip back to the Hudson Valley to visit good friends and get in some good hikes.  One of those hikes was to Nuclear Lake, just outside of Pawling, New York.  The lake was the source of water cooling for an experimental plutonium plant back in the 1930s.

Philadelphia: City Skyline

I finally found a bit of downtime to get some dusk photography of the city skyline.  It's been on my list for a while and today's weather was pretty sweet.  I decided to get some shots from the new South Street Bridge which offers a pretty nice view.  Check it out.

Dallas: Highland Park Village

Believe it or not, the oldest shopping center is located in Dallas, Texas.  Highland Park Village is in the northern part of Dallas, surrounded by luxury homes in an upscale neighborhood.  Of course it's fitting that most of the shops in the village are high end - Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Escada to name a few.  At night, Highland Park Village is transformed visually by accent lighting in all of the Great Oaks that line the sidewalks.  It's a pretty nice place to visit.

Vancouver: Sights of the City

I thought I would share a handful of photos from Vancouver that showcase a variety of locations around the city.  From the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Stanley Park and the Seawall, there are lots of sites to see - and they are all spectacular.

Fort Worth: Water Gardens - Black & White

Here's some other shots from the Fort Worth Water Gardens.  They were my least favorites but I cropped them a bit and added a black and white filter since the colors weren't making them feel too special.

Catskills: Newman's Ledge

This is an overdue post from my early spring visit to New York.  I enjoyed an extended weekend in upstate New York for a visit to a really great friend and his family.  I really enjoy spending time with Mike and his family because they are avid outdoor enthusiasts.  We always get a hike or two in during any given visit.  Here's a few photo highlights from one of the hikes.

Dallas: Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

The day before my move out of Dallas, I decided I had to do one last photo shoot of the new Calatrava bridge.  The last time I snapped some photos, they had just started stringing all the suspension cables.  This time around, all the cables were strung and the bridge was in full tension.  It's a really beautiful bridge and a great addition to the skyline.  I hope that the other two Calatrava-designed bridges for the Trinity River get built.

Vancouver: Olympic Cauldron

I finally got a chance to visit Vancouver, British Columbia this summer.  Similar to it's neighboring city of Seattle, Vancouver is a very lush, green landscape with plenty of spectacular mountain views and watery vistas.  It was also the home for the 2010 Winter Olympics.  Below are some shots of the cauldron and plaza.

Dallas: Oak Cliff/Bishop Arts

Here are some photos from my visit to the Oak Cliff/Bishop Arts neighborhood of Dallas.  It wasn't an impressive photo session but I did snap a few interesting shots.
