This post is a request from someone, other than myself, who has an OBSESSION with HDR. You’ll have to look at the previous post to figure out who it is. Or maybe you already know:)
Oh btw Ron, HDR can be done in B+W as well.

One of the dilapidated buildings at Fort Hancock on Sandy Hook, NJ. I spent a few hours combing the ruins of this old base. Interesting facts regarding this Army base can be found here.

Ran across this guy during my walk around the Manasquan Reservoir the other day. I must have scared him stiff because he didn’t move for the whole 10 minutes I was there.

Although it doesn’t look like it, any minute now a train that travels along the Jersey coastline should be pulling up. Not many people taking the train at 7:00am on a Sunday morning and that’s OK because I like this shot with the absence of people.
One thing I have discovered as I near the end of this challenge is that I really like B+W photos. I will probably pursue this type of photography more in the coming year.
Hope all had a great holiday! I’m off to bed as my kids had us up pretty early today.

Just got my new Canon 70-200 L lens and this is one of the first shots with it. This is my oldest daughter and she’s wearing her favorite hat, a Coach hat, of course, what’s not to like about anything from Coach.

One of my goals today was to get out and take pictures of something, anything, somewhat interesting.

Well, this is the best I could do. Not the best, but it knocks off this theme.

365- Childhood Favorite

Every kids favorites, snow and sleigh riding. Our earliest snowstorm in quite some time dumped close to 2 feet of snow in parts of New Jersey.
A dad and his son enjoying the snow.
I took my own kids sledding and we had a great time, except for all the snow in my face.
