Michelle and I spent Patriot’s Day 2017—it’s a Massachusetts thing—traveling to Providence, Rhode Island and Hartford, Connecticut to visit the state capitols there. I’m excited to present the Rhode Island photos, especially those of the rotunda! The rotunda photos are both HDR, and do a wonderful job of showing the details of the murals and… Read more »

I ended 2014 and began 2015 continuing to visit state capitols and whittle down my bucket list. While visiting Dallas for Christmas I made a visit to Little Rock, Arkansas to tour and photograph the capitol. I was quite impressed by the white marble of the interior and the huge bronze doors (that are no longer used as… Read more »
My quest to photograph and tour all 50 state capitols continues. This week I started with New Hampshire and Maine (which is not yet edited). While New Hampshire may hold title of the oldest congress, it is also home to the smallest capitol I have ever visited. There are only three photos below because that was… Read more »

This allowed for long exposures (6-25s) with wide apertures (f/4-5.6). Since the filter is variable and the show only lasted a half hour, I didn’t have time to take note… Read more »
Here are a few more shots of the aftermath of Nemo. A few Engineers took to building tunnels and igloos in Cambridge!
This afternoon MIT and Harvard had an amazing snowball fight at Cambridge Public Library. I ended up joining the fight, so most of the photos below were snappped by my friend Michelle.
Early this morning I set out to capture the Leonids meteor shower. As is the case with most solar events, I learned about the meteor shower late the day before. (At least it wasn’t the day after!) The shower was supposed to peak from about midnight until 3 or 4 AM. I rented a Zipcar… Read more »
