Here Rests in Honored Glory

In Uncategorized, Washington DC by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I wasn’t expecting to be away from my blog for a full week, but between my trip to DC, the Red Sox in the World Series (and winning!) and re-engaging with the real job, I have found it hard to get back to the blog. But that ends today. I’m back. So about that hiatus …

Mesa Window

In landscape, Olympus OM-D, Travel, Utah, Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 by Robert Lussier3 Comments

Another shot from Mesa Arch from the Photoblogger trip to Moab this past Spring. Even though sunrise had past, there was still some magic to be gad as the sun slowly rose above Canyonlands. Some of the seemingly dozens of photographers that had been there since well before dawn had left, leaving the rest up …

Dark Tower

In architecture, England, London, Travel, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier5 Comments

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 …

Biggest Little City Life

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Reno, Travel by Robert Lussier1 Comment

After I ate dinner in Reno on that trip last spring I grabbed my camera and tripod and set out for a solo photo walk around the casino district. Outside of the Casinos, most of the businesses were closed. What else is there to do in The Biggest Little City in the World, besides gamble? …

Ages of London

In architecture, London, Travel by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Still in my B&W phase, I was going through my images last night looking for something to post. I considered posting one of these images from London but was torn between them. Then I had a thought. Why not combine them into one image? Here is a tryptic of over 300 years of London’s architecture. …

Washington Monument

In long exposure, Travel, Washington DC by Robert Lussier4 Comments

This looks like it will be my final blog post of 2012, so I’ll leave you with a shot of the Washington Monument from my October trip to DC. There is no significance to it, I just liked the stark black and white of this late night shot. 2012 was a very productive year for me. …

Methuen Memorial Music Hall

In 16-35mm f3.5, architecture, vertorama by Robert Lussier4 Comments

After two years of back and forth with the Hall’s board of directors, I finally got a chance to photograph this gorgeous place. It wasn’t a question of IF I could shoot here, it was a question of WHEN. Our schedules never seemed to match. Even at that, I was unable to block out enough …

Marine Memorial

In Travel, Washington DC by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I’m back from a long weekend in DC where I did some night shooting on the National Mall on Friday, watched the Marine Corps Marathon (and supported Team Chris) on Sunday,  then weathered Hurricane Sandy on Monday. With the storm roaring through, I was destined to be stuck in DC for the remainder of the …

Parliament Blue

In Cityscape, England, London, Travel, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I was going to save this to post post another time, but with the London Olympics winding down, I figured today was a good day for it. This was taken from the same spot I shot this one, about 45 minutes later. The Blue Hour is my favorite time to shoot. In London in the summer the …

Parliament

In Cityscape, England, London, Travel by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I’ve been doing more work with textures using Perfect Photo Suite from onOne Software. And I’m having an absolute blast doing it. This is one that I am particularly happy with. I stood at this spot on the Themes, just a few yards left of the London Eye, for about an hour waiting for the …
