A Few Frames

I spent a few days in Chicago this week for work.  Of course, I took my camera with and found some time to get out and wander.  I also shot a bunch of frames for a big time lapse project that I'm working on.  Here's a few of the frames.

One Night in Philly

A few weeks ago, I spent a couple of days in Philadelphia for work.  While there, I had a couple of opportunities to go for a wander with my camera.  This was my first trip to Philly, and it was really cool to experience a new (to me) city.  The first night I was there, I got back to the hotel after dark so I grabbed my tripod and my camera and headed out.

A short time at Snowbasin

Yesterday morning, I got up early and headed up the hill with a couple of friends to shoot the sunrise.  Sunrise turned out to be a bust, so we headed to the Old Snowbasin Highway to see what we could find.  What we found was that the road was closed due to a car accident.  So, we turned around and headed up to the  Snowbasin ski resort, our intent was to find a spot to shoot some time lapse of the last remaining bits of the sunrise.  It turns out that we ended up near one of the lifts, and had a great view of the final preparations prior to opening for the season.  I'm pretty happy with the material that I shot, but I need to go back to finish the story.

So, here's a sneak peek of Snowbasin. . . .

National Memorial Arch

One last post from Valley Forge.  These images are of the National Memorial Arch, a monument to commemorate the arrival of George Washington and his army into Valley Forge.

Washington Memorial Chapel

On our way out of Valley Forge, we took a few minutes to tour the Washington Memorial Chapel.  What an amazing building.  The details were incredible.  Unfortunately, we got there just as they were closing and the light was all but gone for the day.  Definitely on my list of place to visit again.

Valley Forge

Recently, while working in Philadelphia, PA, I had the opportunity to make a quick stop at Valley Forge.  I have really enjoyed the opportunities I have had to get some quick glimpses of US historical sites.  Some day, I'll get the opportunity to spend more time in these places.
