Double planet encounter

double planet. first close encounterThe New Horizons spacecraft that was launched in 2006, has just completed its mission objective with a fly by of Pluto.  what we may have found is that Pluto and what was it’s largest moon Charon may in fact be a double planetary system with each planet rotating around a point in space. if this is found to be true we have just witnessed our else photos of such a system.

at the very least it looks like Plutos surface is complex enough with snow cover and strange polygonal shapes , that it may be reinstated as a planet.  I am looking forward to see more NASA photos like the one I. this post and I will be following  closely the news releases from our most distant (well most of the time, most distant) member of our little piece of the universe.


New Long exposure Gallery added

I was going through my photos looking at exposure times and I choose a few to create a new gallery.  Long exposure can be used to show, the passing of time, motion, or just in increase in detail in photograph.  Please take a look and I hope you enjoy them.

Silo City Photo Shoot

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a workshop in Buffalo NY, we were shooting at a site called Silo City. The location consisted of several abandoned grain elevators located along the Niagara River.  The workshop was run by Mark Maio  

This site offered plenty of subjects and every subject could be shot with any number of different photo techniques. Below are a few of my sample images taken from the weekend.
