     Hurricane Irma blew through northern Florida in early September 2017.  A flight to Orlando was in order to visit family - Charlottesville to Philadelphia to Orlando.  If you don't fly very often, it's always a reminder of how open and yet how crowded the country is, and how it changes.  The window seat on an Airbus A320 provided the opportunity to capture these aerial photos....

     The beaches of Corolla, N.C., cover some 20 miles along the northern Outer Banks of Currituck County.  About 5,000 vacation rental houses dot the landscape. A summer population of tourists escape to Corolla from cities along the east coast.  Duck, Kitty Hawk, and Nags Head lie to the south.  Corolla is remote enough to separate your mind from the cares of daily life, and yet co...

     What do you do when you've got another 10 hours of sitting in a car on I-95 South? Naturally, you point the camera out the window. You don't even have to frame the shot, or focus it. Just shoot. See what you get. Change lenses, change aperture, change shutter speed, set auto focus, or zone focus. It doesn't matter. It's all rather random. Wait for some light and color, point an...
