It has been forever since I’ve posted an image here on the blog. Well, maybe just a week or so. But it seems like forever. Not by design, though. Life has been very hectic — My free time over the past couple of weeks was consumed by final preparations for the Boston Marathon and my …

ThrustSSC

In 14mm f2.8, Cars, England by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This is an image from almost two years ago. It was shot at the Transport Museum in Coventry, UK. This is the ThrustSSC (Thrust Supersonic Car). In 1997 it became the first car to officially break the sound barrier. It did so in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert with RAF fighter pilot Andy Green at the wheel. The display is …

Tower of London

I never get tired of going back through old images. And I never get tired of black and white processing. So here is an old image I just processed in black and white. It is from last year’s trip to England with my wife, Jean and my youngest son, Ryan. To recap, Jean was there …

Back to England for this one. During the very rainy Wednesday (or was it Thursday) afternoon on the trip, My son Ryan and I did a whirlwind tour through the Cotswolds in The Midlands.

Here is a dark treatment of Big Ben with Westminster Abbey faintly visible in the background. This tower is so iconic and I got so many shots of it when we were there last year, I thought a stark, alternate take on it would be refreshing. Be sure to click on the image to view …

Gaol Cell

Walking through the streets Warwick on our first day in the UK last June, we happened upon this door and lock that seemed out of place — even for this very medieval city. It wasn’t the apparent age of the door and lock (everything in Warwick is old), it was the fact that it was facing …

Egyptian Eyes

In 50mm 1.4, England, Travel by Robert Lussier1 Comment

On my England trip, my son Ryan and I killed most of the last day at the British Museum. It was an absolutely fascinating place to visit — filled with art and artifacts from the ages of man, from around the globe. Their Egyptology section is probably the most extensive in the world. Cameras ameras are welcome. …

This is another image from my solot walk along the Themes that I overlooked initially. I remember I couldn’t resist shooting the moon hanging off of the tower. I processed this one using the Photomatix 32-bit HDR plugin for Lightroom, then a quick trip through onOne’s Perfect Effects.   Related Images:

The Albany

In 20mm f2.8, England, Travel by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I made a point to go out for an evening photo walk while I was in Coventry last spring. While I was out I made my way to the neighborhood pub for a pint, of course. The Albany is the quintessential neighborhood pub. Everyone in the pub appeared to know one another and my entrance …
