Sunstar

In Oakland, sometimes the stars show themselves during the day.

A Ray of Light for New York City

The World Trade Center Transportation Hub was just getting the final touches when I visited in 2016. Through the last of the construction I caught a purple ray of light in my lens that I thought fit this place just perfectly.

Don’t Look Directly at the Sun

It’s OK to point your camera at the sun, though, especially if you get a sun star and rainbow like this! The Flatiron Building in New York City is impressive on its own, but combined with direct sun and the glass of this lens I was able to get some unique results! Sometimes lens flare isn’t such a bad thing!

Manhattan Sunset

My original plan was to go to the top of Rockefeller Center to catch the sunset. Then it started raining, and then it started pouring. I was sure sunset was not going to happen. When the storm cleared right before sunset we were with our gracious hosts on Roosevelt Island and rushed to the roof. The sunset was super bright, and the leftover storm clouds were dramatic. Since it was just a few days past Manhattanhenge, where the direction of the sunset lines up with the corridors of the city, I was able to get the sun between two buildings right before it disappeared. Sometimes missed plans work out after all.

Coit Tower

I’m a fan of sunstars and like to incorporate them in a photo whenever I can. This time I was able to get Coit Tower reaching for the clouds and a sunstar shining down all at the same time! Success!

Hangar One

Hangar One is a sight I see every day from my office, but the public is rarely allowed inside. NASA Ames recently had an open house for their 75th anniversary, and one of the best attractions was going inside this old hangar. With the outside shell removed long ago, interesting angles for photography were everywhere.
