Denver Cash Register Building

Denver Cash Register Building

If you read the title, you are disqualified from this guessing game. Guess what we call this building here in Denver? Yep, you guessed it…the Cash Register Building. Other than having a melting snow issue, which falls 700 ft to the pedestrians below, it’s cool and definitely the signature of the Denver skyline.

Photographer’s Notes – This is a single image processed in Nik Viveza 2 and Lightroom 4.

Denver Skyline – Part I

Denver Skyline Dawn

As I mentioned last week, I got up reaaallll early to take advantage of shooting the Denver Skyline at dawn from Denver’s tallest building. Opportunities like this don’t come along everyday, you have to jump on them. Thanks to my good buddy…The Man…The Myth…The Armondo…he was able to get me access to an amazing vantage point. We will be spending the week checking out exactly what sunrise is like from a Mile High!

Photographer’s Note – If you are interested, here is the Nik Recipe I used to create the image.

A Quiet Conversation

I often wonder if I should post images like this. They aren’t the type of photos that will win awards or grace the cover of a magazine. Nope, they are images of quiet little places off of the beaten path, places that you might never notice. I think about this often. I actually worry about it. Do I drive people away from here, because the image is simple and not spectacular? After pondering this for a long time, I’ve come to the conclusion that I make and share images because that is what I do. On top of that, the people that visit here on a regular basis also like these images. Even better, the people that visit here that like these types of images are very cool! No kidding, when I talk to people that I’ve met through this site, we click immediately. So I’ve concluded that sharing these images and the many others I have shared over that last 4 years (some simple and some spectacular) is a good thing…no…it’s a great thing! Why, because I’ve met a lot of great people doing so. Thanks to everyone who visits here and allows these little adventures to be part of your day.

Gift Shop

Carlsbad Cavern Gift Shop

No kidding, this is the gift shop in Carlsbad Cavern. Everything about this place is cool! I shot this image with my trusty Nikon 14-24mm. Sometimes you just need the ultra wide-angle perspective. Hence, I am eagerly awaiting the Fuji 10-24mm XF lens. Once that hits the streets….I might easily be an all Fuji Guy. As for now, I’m still holding on to my wide Nikon glass.

Dinner With Friends

Yellow Brix Carlsbad New Mexico

Hope you had a great weekend! If we ever have dinner together, which actually happens quite a bit since I’ve met a lot great people who visit here, I’ll probably order dinner then we’ll have to go explore the restaurant to shoot some photos. Thankfully my family, friends and regular visitors here are cool creative people that enjoy photography. The Yellow Brix, pictured here, was a very cool discovery in New Mexico. I was pretty sure that in the middle of Haliburton country, we wouldn’t be finding a place like this. Thankfully, I was wrong.
