Milanese Bicycle

It would be a shame to visit a new European city, especially one in Italy and not seek out a bicycle I can photograph.

Viennese Bicycle

A European city, a classic bicycle. Did you have any doubts that I would photograph it?

Battered

As some of you may or may not know I’m a member of a photography club and in late September some of the members met at the Distillery District for an evening photo walk followed by dinner. I’ve been to so focused (no pun intended) on my images from Italy that I didn’t get a chance to process my images from that outing until this weekend.

There’s still plenty of Italy images that I’ll share but thought I would take a break this week and share a few images that are closer to home.

The Distillery is located east of Downtown Toronto and displays the best preserved Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. I’ll share more of the history of this wonderful place  in my next post.

Window to Hezekiah’s Tunnel

I was going through my archives the other day looking through my images from my trip to Israel in 2010. I’m going back to Israel next week and I was trying to remind myself what I shot the last time I was there. That trip took place before I started this blog and when I was just starting to learn about HDR. This was one image that I was never happy with. I had shot 3 brackets handheld but it was very dark and the longer exposure image was blurry and the HDR never came out the way I wanted it to. Of course that was before I was using Lightroom so I decided to process one of the brackets on its own in LR5. All I did for processing was to bring out the shadows and darken the highlights slightly and cloned out part of a railing.

This was taken on the walk down to Hezekiah’s Tunnel in Jerusalem which was dug underneath the City of David. The tunnel dates back to the reign of Hezekiah of Judah in the late 8th and early 7th century BCE and was designed as an aqueduct to provide Jerusalem with water.

Walking through the tunnel itself is an amazing experience. It’s dark, very narrow and you walk through water that comes up to your knees. Yup that’s us in the picture below. Our tour guide took this shot…

La Bicyclette

You didn’t think that I would be travelling and not come back with at least one bicycle image did you? If you’ve been following this blog for a while you know I love taking pictures of bicycles in unique settings. You can find one from Rome here and another from New Orleans here. I have a few other California bicycle pictures that I’ll share but imagine my surprise when I cam across this restaurant in Carmel called La Bicyclette.  It couldn’t get any more perfect then that.

Have a great long weekend everyone!
