Another shot from Hearst Castle: The Gothic Study was W.R. Hearst’s executive board room and the main place where he conducted business while at the castle. The room was quite dim and I was doing this without a tripod–phew, that’s a lot of breath holding and concentration!
Below are a few shots from my trip through Philly a couple weeks back. I was only there a few hours, but I managed to snag some night shots with the help of my tripod. A great city with great views (and food), it warrants a trip back soon!
Yesterday I passed through Philly on the way back from a wedding in NJ. Besides having a fantastic meal at Jim’s Steaks, we passed by the Philadelphia Museum of Art to watch the sunset and snap a few shots. After making a loop around the museum, we walked back up to the top of the famous “Rocky Steps” to get an evening view of the city. Having been there a few minutes earlier, I wasn’t expecting to see a group of Harleys parked at the top. I chatted a bit with the riders and they let me snap some photos of their hogs. This is one of my favorite photos (I’ll post others later).
