Here’s what some great D.C. photographers have been seeing this spring:

Didn’t think I’d get any shot until the clouds moved in and created a warm cool atmosphere around the eclipse.

Used a long zoom to compress the space leading to the Basilica.

The final night at the Gaza Encampment on the University Yard at George Washington University. A few hours after this picture was taken, police moved in and shut down the demonstration.

Washingtonians poured out of office buildings and into McPherson Square to catch a glimpse of the eclipse.

This shot was taken from a ferry headed to Alcatraz in San Francisco, for a night tour. It ended up pouring rain and foggy which added to the eerie atmosphere.

This picture is from when I first arrived at Yosemite, looking at El Capitan. It had just finished snowing and a fog was slowly lifting. The risk of going to a national park during the shoulder season is the weather, but the reward is much fewer people around.

After consulting some some trusted ones, I’m submitting a couple of shots from the Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade.

Live music has caught my eye in 2024 as I have been supporting my son and his band @Paulieboyblues.

This year I have been trying to improve my skills at photographing birds in flight. There’s been considerable trial and error (and error, and even more error…). Both of these images were taken at Huntley Meadows Park. I’m particularly happy that I managed to capture a flying barn swallow, as these birds are small and crazy fast.

I’ve been seeking out the colors of spring – soft blues, greens, yellows and pinks. They’re not only in gardens, but on Metrobus and food trucks!

No matter where I travel, my favorite photos are those I find on the streets of New York. Here are two from 2024 so far.

This spring I’ve enjoyed the birdwatching at Constitution Gardens!

With a seven day work week, my routine has become all work and nearly no play. So that has slowed down my shutterbug habits as well. While I’m unable to attend social events, the everyday commute is still full of opportunities for care free snapshots. Take for example, this gremlin I see on my commute home. Not sure if the Gremlin or any AMC car was ever desirable, but this one commands attention with its aged facade.

To spice things up thing while walking around the office, I’ve also been sporadically playing with intentional camera movement as seen in the second image.

Each spring, I look forward to two spectacles – the Emancipation Day fireworks on Pennsylvania Avenue, and the scenes outside the Supreme Court as major cases are argued.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to take a three-week trip to Iberia this spring. There were myriad photo opportunities, of course. But what really caught my eye were the scenes of everyday street life. The first photo is of a student sitting just outside the gates of the prestigious University of Coimbra, Portugal’s oldest university. He’s wearing his black cape (à la Harry Potter) and leaning against his cello case.

The second photo captures  Plaça del Traginers, one of the many small squares in Barcelona’s old city.
