Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true. Jacques-Henri Lartigue
2015 was a slow photography year for me. It was a year of immense change and my focus was in different areas. Which is quite OK. I’ve been recapping my years in photography for some time now. And 2015 still provided some good moments behind the camera. For a refresher, here is 2014.
Let’s commence, shall we?
This is very simple, symmetrical shot of the Piscine Molitor in Paris. I love the beautiful blend of colors and the number of lines leading the eye. You might also recognize this from the Life of Pi.
I do not drink, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy an incredible view at the Penner-Ash Winery in Oregon. This was taken in August where the landscape itself seemed very thirsty.
I don’t take many photos of people, but last summer I couldn’t resist taking some shots of my son Oliver. The whole shoot was a success and this photo seemed very J. Crew.
How many colors of green are in this photo? This is from the beautiful Japanese Gardens in Portland. It had just rained, so it gave the gardens a beautiful dense, damp and moody look.
This is hands down my favorite photo and probably the best of the year, and I didn’t even take it! It’s a great shot by Leslie Bailey of me and my son down in Ft. Myers and an incredible end to the day. It also happened to be Father’s Day.
I’m a sucker for the Flatiron building in New York City, but I wanted to shoot it in a slightly different way. The light towards the end of the day in May worked perfectly.
Who doesn’t love Spring? A beautiful day in Indianapolis and a visit to Crown Hill Cemetery. One of the most beautiful spots in Indy.
The Neon Museum is one my favorite museums and an ideal break for the casino-EDM soundtrack of Las Vegas. This was my 2nd trip, this time at night. This sign really stood out. Just like Liberace.
This is one my favorite statues in Crown Hill Cemetery. This perspective feels very powerful and the black and white shot plays well with the sky.
2015, that’s a wrap. Here’s to a great 2016 to everyone and hopefully more opportunities to take photos. Thanks for reading.
