Journeys Thru My Lens

Trips, topics, pics and more comprised of conventional digital and HDR photography.

Welcome to my photoblog! This is a compilation of brief "journey's" throughout Connecticut and sometimes nearby area's. I'll either display the photo as it was shot or utilize an HDR style through software. This blog is an extension of my photography hobby. It's main function is to give purpose to my photo's while at the same time create an enjoyable past time. If they bring any satsifaction to anyone else then all the better! All photographs in this blog were taken by me unless otherwise noted.
