    • I've realized too late that to update the first post with a featured image of last week's winner, and I'll have to repost my photo again. Therefore I'm breaking it out as a separate post for posterity.

      While walking on the bridge in Zurich, I saw this perfect photo op. The guy was heading out on his boat to fish in Lake Zurich. I rushed to take a picture of this with both my Sony A7s and an iPhone. 

      I was so excited to see if I got the shot that I immediately stuck my eye in the viewfinder to view it. I kept on walking and looking at photos through the viewfinder. Paying no attention to where I was going, I walked right into a light pole headfirst. My sunglasses felt on the ground on impact and got scratched. 

      More importantly, my ego crashed while my girlfriend looked bewildered and then started laughing — the things we do to get the shot.

      Editing: Lightroom adjustments of color balance, contrast and added a touch of a vignette.

      Camera: Sony A7s

    • This week's entry is one of my all-time favorite urban shots of the old town in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

      Just after the sunset, a fresh coat of rain covered up the streets and made for beautiful reflections. The clock tower is a significant historical tourist attraction, and I wish I remembered its history, but I was too distracted with getting the shot.
