Pittsburgh Liberty Bridge Morning
A Fall shot taken from Three Rivers Park.
Taken from the Brooklyn side of the East River during a spectacular, but chilly spring morning. The bridge demonstrates its iconic period structure, strength, and beauty.
If you said to someone meet me in NYC and offered no more details, many people would likely look for you under this roof, somewhere around the iconic Information Rotunda. This was taken during a snow event that challenged the city. Where did hardy New Yorkers go if they wanted to venture out in snow boots and heavy overcoats? Grand Central!
The GE & Afternoon Light
It is really, about managing light.--then, it's filling the lens. Take a look at the architectural detail of the GE building. A building with soul, not just tall box of steel and glass.
787 In The Flare
Landing at LAX, runway 24R at 4 PM, a spectacular 787 in American Airlines livery. Iconic US airports? LAX is on that list. An iconic airplane? Not quite there, yet. Regardless, a grand view.
Little Red Fireboat
Hardly little, Rescue 3 is berthed at the SF Embarcadero Firehouse. Captured in late afternoon light in July against the Oakland Bay Bridge; iconic symbols.
Taken from the shoreline of Brooklyn Hts., this image taken under an ominous sky, is of a container ship making the passage under the metallic green bridge that spans the narrows.

Located in downtown San Francisco, the turn of the century Hobart Building basks in the reflected light from an adjacent glass clad building in sunrise light.
On this summer afternoon, a squall line moved across NYC producing a sky story to accentuate a bridge story.
Wyoming Storm Approach
Able to see long distances opens up the photographic possibilities where they meet an oncoming afternoon thunderstorm. Here, the weather is the subject, the terrain forms the upside down contrast.
Chicago L Overhead
This B&W image captures the L overhead.
Bay Bridge Sunset
Bridges are more than just spans of steel, they are symbols, and at their best, they take on an iconic status whose shape evokes wonder. The other piece is hos bridges interact with their surroundings.
Likely taken on Ferris Buehler's day off.
B&W interpretative photograph within San Francisco's city library.
Manhattan Bridge Steel
An early morning photo of what makes the Manhattan Bridge iconic, and strong; steel, and plenty of it.
Flight 93 Memorial
It took years for the US Department of Interior to come to terms with a local landowner to acquire the land that became this national park site. Go there. Be prepared to be deeply moved by the human power of selflessness and conquest of fear.
UN Headquarters, NYC
Captured in late afternoon light and backlit by a beautiful sky. Yes, the glass is a true emerald.
Taubman Art Museum
Located in Roanoke, Virginia, the building's exterior is as halting as the art within.
Located in the Sierras not too far into California from Nevada is this wonderful alpine lake.

The scene here is in San Francisco, a daylight photo with creative processing to modulate ambient light and accentuate shadows.
Brooklyn Bridge Morning
Taken just after first light, the golden hue of the rising sun promotes the many tones of the stone.

One of America's greatest architects created the vision that became the Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.

Temple of Zuehl
An abstract interpretation of a prominent San Francisco building.
Please Pay The Machine
A wonderful example of street art. Thank you Edward Granger for your stylized painting.
Probably one of the most favored methods of seeing the city by tourists is the network of electrified street cars that ply the embarcadero.
