Trey Ratcliff‘s image of Central Park at night in autumn, ground carpeted with leaves while the paths have been swept clean by the passage of pedestrians, has always stuck with me. Spotting the same pattern in St. Lawrence’s Enchanted Forest from high above, I was reminded of an image that got me into photography to begin with.
The Datsun Z cars are some of my favorites (very likely due to Wangan Midnight), but since the originals arrived in the US on steel wheels, they’re nearly always seen on aftermarket alloys. These Compomotive-style wheels certainly meet my expectations, even if they’re not the “right” (i.e., historically accurate) units.
Does anything more fully reveal the variety among four-wheeled vehicles than a Porsche 911 GTS pulling into a space alongside rows of golf carts?
My favorite view, run through my new favorite tool: Photoshop’s Super Resolution algorithm. My six-year-old laptop chugs a bit when running it, but the results are worth it; I recommend clicking through to see the detail in Berkeley’s South Campus.
Even semi-mysterious forested islands in the middle of quaint small towns need mundane features like parking lots.
The heights of St. Vitus Cathedral allow for this double-view inside and outside the walls of Prague Castle. I really like finding shots that capture this enormous variation in scale, from individual pedestrians to whole neighborhoods.
Though I complained about the mud of Parisian pathways, there is something perfect about the bright morning sun reflecting off the pale material.
You know spring has arrived when the pink dogwoods in the neighborhood finally bloom.
Though Decaseconds isn’t about to become an auto blog, there’s something about a car in the environment for which it was practically designed (like a tiny Peugot in Paris, a Miata on a racetrack, or a manual transmission, turbocharged, German wagon in the Adirondacks) that looks just right.
This view of King Commons park in Johnson City is a place that I keep coming back to again and again.
