First Baptist Church, Savannah, Georgia

First baptist Church, Savannah
A few years back in my last life as a Rock and Roll Tour Director I happened to be in Savannah, Georgia working on an album project. We were spending a few days recording in Savannah at The First African Baptist Church, circa 1773, organized by the Reverend George Lelle. The original name for the church was 'Fist Colored Baptist' and this structure also housed the first black Sunday school in North America. Apparently the basement of this church was part of the underground railway as the floor had small bullet type holes to let air into the sub-basement. I was honored to be able to spend those few days in the historic location. 

Today's images are a few from those few days in Savannah....

New York, Gallery Show and Workshop

I am proud to announce an iPhone New York City Gallery Show and Workshop, both being hosted by Foto Care. The show will contain landscape images from Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, Death Valley, Zion National Park as well as Rock and Roll images shot on film, scanned, and processed using my ipad...hence the name: 'Music, Iphone and Other Neighborhoods'. Images will be printed on canvas as well as more traditional substrates.

The gallery show will be followed by a weekend workshop covering all aspects of iPhone/iPad from capture through printing.

Notre Dame, Basilica

Back a few years I happened to be traveling through South Bend, Indiana and had the opportunity and access to make a few images on the campus. This is one of the images from that day.

Boston, Massachusetts

Boston Sunset
'Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles (aw, that's what's happenin' baby)
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, fuggers, and thieves (aw, but they're cool people)
Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, you're the Number One place)
Frustrated women (I mean they're frustrated)
Have to be in by twelve o'clock (oh, that's a shame)
But I'm wishin' and a-hopin, oh
That just once those doors weren't locked (I like to save time for
my baby to walk around)
Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah)'.........THE STANDELLS 
Night Baseball - Boston
 I was browsing the archives this morning and realized there were a few images of Boston made over the past 4-5 years. I was big into HDR back then - a bit over the top about it - but have re-processed and toned them down a bit.....I am not a big fan of HDR these days but do like the way it renders these difficult images.

Red Barber Chair, ESP

Red Barber Chair, ESP
This is a re-doux of an image from a few years back...The Red Barber Chair is in the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. A good trip to Philly is to get to the Graffiti Underground and then Eastern State. Makes for quite the photographic day...

Ireland Rainbow #2

Ireland Rainbow #2
This image is from two years ago very near the Cliffs of Moher in County Claire, Ireland. These cliffs are just east of Shannon, south of Galway. We were traveling some back roads when the rainbow suddenly appeared. For the most part in Ireland you just stop the car, grab a camera and shoot - there is usually never a place to park..

As it happens quite frequently in Ireland when we arrived at The Cliffs about 15 minutes later the fog had rolled in and the rain was coming down.  On the bucket list for a summer visit...

This is a 5 image panoramic stitched in Photoshop.

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill'.....John Lennon, Working Class Hero

I am never quite sure what he motivation is for me to post an image with a quote....they just seem to appear so I follow the lead....This image has been posted in color some time ago...Today it changed...
