Photo Journey- USA Roadtrip.

Postby Raskill on Sat May 21, 2011 7:21 pm

Well, my road trip to the US is all over bar the shouting (from my credit card company).

Awesome time, utterly great. The people in the US were so friendly and polite, really not what we are led to think of them by the media.

Anyways, here are a few images from the trip.

Image

The rental.... a 2011 Camaro convertible. Did 127 miles an hour very nicely through the long desert roads :)

Image

View of the light and fountain show from the room in the Bellagio. Vegas must be done in style. It is unlike anywhere you will ever visit.

Image

My hiking boots. They have been in many seas, nearly every ocean, in many of the worlds great rivers and still are going strong. It's become a habit that they must get submerged in important water ways. :)

Image

Binoculars on Jacksonville Pier, Florida.

Image

Abandoned shed, French Quarter, New Orleans.

Whilst on the subject of New Orleans, Bourbon Street was just like a big version of Kings Cross (with better music). If you are going, try Frenchman St instead, better music, and less drunken twits.

Image

St Pauls Chapel, New York. Literally across the road from the WTC. Awesome history to the place.

Image
For the lady in your life (especially if you are on the trip with a mate, rather than her.....)

Image

When in Arizona, do as the Arizonians do (?)... Friends took us pistol and assault riflr shooting on their ranch. Awesome fun!!!

Image

Hoover dam was awesome. Exceptionally big, and an engineers wet dream (or nightmare). You have to see the scale of the facility to belief it.

Image

Times Square, about 01:00 on a Tuesday Morning. Incredible atmosphere, it honestly gave me a feeling of awe I have not felt since I was a child. It's like being in a giant pin ball machine.

Anyways, that'll do just now. The rest of the images can be found here
2x D700, 2x D2h, lenses, speedlights, studio, pelican cases, tripods, monopods, patridges, pear trees etc etc

Looks like a lot of fun was had during the course of that trip. That view of Hoover really does give you an idea of its immense size

nice shot, that dam is amazing, i remember hearing about all the issues they had with that - wasn't there some dude who got buried in the concrete or something there? Apparently the sheer amount of concrete poured at each time created problems with the blocks overheating and cracking as they cured - crazy stuff, nightmare for sure...

No amount of processing will fix bad composition - trust me i have tried.
