A business trip to New York City dominated the weekdays of mid-June on my calendar, with both business and the city highlighted in the images of the week. Let’s take a look at June 10-16.
10-JUN-2013: A view of Manhattan on a rainy Monday evening from my hotel room window.
11-JUN-2013: It’s part of the job, taking these group pix at industry parties. This octet was just perfectly *random* enough to feature here.
12-JUN-2013: One of my favorite images of the year, the new One World Trade Center in NYC. Where does the sky end? Where do the buildings begin?
13-JUN-2013: Came into the week with a rainy picture of NY looking out the hotel room window. Closing out the visit with a late-night picture of rain ON the hotel room window.
14-JUN-2013: The week’s reading material on my biz trip being unpacked. Really digging this book of interesting tidbits.
15-JUN-2013: A pleasant Saturday evening for a pitcher of hefeweizen at the Glendale-based brewery.
16-JUN-2013: This incredible miniature room (probably measuring 15-20 inches tall and 3-5 feet wide) is from “2001: A Space Odyssey” and was part of the Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA.

Today, I was finally able to pull together an album of images from the spring, shot in and around Southern California. From beach to city to ballpark … and from concert to eclipse to bars, there is a nice bit of diversity to this recent set. Below are a few sample images from my latest set on Flickr. You can see the rest (35 images in all) by simply clicking this link:
The Santa Monica Pier from Palisades Park, April 8.
Beers in San Diego, May 18.
The essence of baseball, Dodger Stadium, May 28.
Continuing my photographic efforts, I had my camera with me on a couple Sundays earlier this month: at a bar in Santa Monica for the Super Bowl and in downtown for lunch and some architectural shooting. It’s a learning curve, but I’m feeling more comfortable with the camera and how Lightroom works for me once I’ve captured the images.
Here, you can see just three examples of what I captured. For the whole set (2o images), visit my Flickr page at:
Pitchers of beer (this time, Blue Moon) and Super Bowl Sunday? They go together well!
