7 Bridges in Amsterdam

There is one fleeting spot along the canals where passing at just the right spot exposes you to 7 different bridges. Catching this perfectly is especially difficult if you aren’t expecting it (on the tour). I could have done better to pull up the sharpness on the faraway bridges, though the positioning is slightly unsymmetrical. The canals are gloriously rich space for photography. Given a drone, this shot might be all the more spectacular, even though this is view is still wonderful.

Skógafoss Up Close

This waterfall has to be the most photographed location on all of the island. People (and birds) flock to this location to get views from every single possible angle. For me, it was a chance to practice some non-tripod work with my camera while trying to get the right kind of angle.

Havana Cabling

Havana Cabling

Cuba is so incredibly diverse when you look at it from outside, but even inside there are stories to be told. I ducked into one of the buildings as I walked by to take a look and I found this wonderful layered spaghetti of cables. Perhaps more interesting is how aged and weathered everything looks.

Petal Archway

This is one of the many beautifully manicured parks in the Azores. These small areas appear to be what families visit when taking breaks (evidenced by the BBQs), but also parks that are lovingly taken care of all year long. These parks can be found all over the coastal highway.

Azores Coastline View

Wow, It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photograph. Too long. So let me fix that. Here’s one from my short trip in January to the beautiful islands of Azores. While here, I rented a car; and damn wasn’t that the best possible move. The island has lots of hills and mountainous areas that give you just insane views of the rocky coastline below.

El Capitolio in Havana

El Capitolio in Havana

This is the El Capitolio (National Capitol Building) in Havana, Cuba. The building, seen currently under construction, is notable for how strikingly similar it is to the United States Capitol building. In fact, construction was overseen by U.S. firm of Purdy and Henderson – which may have had something to do with the similarity. Finished in 1929, it was designed by Eugenio Rayneri Piedra. Currently it is home to Cuba’s National Assembly.
