In the Land of L'Aiguilles

Two cable cars provide a photo enticing ascent through the Alpine cragginess of the L’Aiguilles (Needles) region. Then, walking across a footbridge to a neighboring "needle" and an elevator ride within, for a rise of another 1,000 feet, provides unforgettable views. IF atmospherics smile (my reason for a second ascent when this photo was taken).

Jogging on the Path of Joy

Tide Point on Baltimore's Inner Harbor is home to the campus of Under Armour, which is comprised of re-purposed industrial buildings, once part of the Procter and Gamble soap products factory. Each building is named for one of P&G's products, in this case, Joy dishwashing detergent. The building in the background in this telephoto composition is actually across the water in Canton.

Travels with my Tamrons - B&W

by EmberPhotos-1

Photographs in black and white, mostly film, shot in the Swiss and French Alps, New York City, Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C., through my trusty Tamron travel companions, including 24-48mm and 60-300mm SP lenses and 28-200mm manual and auto-focus versions. Please note: Mont Blanc Massif and Gornergrat Glacier images are not underexposed, but may appear so in their small versions. But if you click twice, these and all the others will appear as they should, and full size. Thanks for viewing!
