Pismo Beach Pier

Capture The Mood


I have long admired black and white images of the seaside. This was one of my first attempts at capturing an ocean pier in this enduring style.

UFO Bridge and Restaurant - Bratislava

Dine Above The Danube

One of the first things that you notice when you drive into Bratislava is the big, new bridge with the UFO parked on top. If you took one look at this structure and wondered whether there might be a restaurant up there, you are absolutely correct.

I didn't have a chance to dine at the UFO restaurant, but I can only imagine that the views from there must be spectacular. If your travels take you to Slovakia, add this place to your must-see list.

Photo Of The Year - Jersey City Sunset in Black and White

You Never Know

I wanted to take a photo of the sun setting behind these buildings in Jersey City, New Jersey (arguably not the most remarkable subject). But is was cloudy, and the colors weren't all that spectacular. - I don't even remember whether I had my tripod with me that day; I might have steadiest the camera on a railing.

Anyway, in a last ditch effort to salvage the image, I converted it to black and white. I didn't think that it looked very impressive, but it had a dark mood that I thought some people might like. The result, which you see here, quickly became my most popular photo EVER on Instagram.

You never know what people will respond to.


Happy New Year! Wishing you good fortune and boundless blessings in 2020!

Daniel
