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. Sometimes you'll see the picture as it was shot. Other times I utilize HDR (high dynamic range) photography through the use of software to achieve a "painterly look". This blog is an extension of my photography hobby. Hopefully it will allow me to improve my skills. It's main purpose is to give some 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 Jay unless otherwise noted.
