Baltimore Inner Harbor

The Inner Harbor in Baltimore is the revamped family friendly corner of Charm City. The area offers a world class aquarium, restaurants and an incredible view. The top image was captured at dusk mid-summer just as the street/building lights were turning on. The area it was captured did not allow…

Siena Cathedral

Toscany is a region of Italy with a strong history. Siena is in the center of Toscany and its cathedral is impressive. Close to it, you can climb to a watchtower. The rules are strict: I don't remember all the details, but it is something like "you go to the…

Ponte Vecchio

This bridge may be one of the most famous in the world. It is interesting to cross (of course), but to capture it in full you need to be on another bridge. The "Ponte all Grazie" is the one where you want to go (on the East). The other one…

Lodi Garden

Spread over 90 acres (360,000 m2),[1] Lodi Garden contains Mohammed Shah's Tomb, Sikander Lodi's Tomb, Sheesh Gumbad and Bara Gumbad, architectural works of the 15th century by Lodis, an Afghan dynasty, that ruled parts of northern India and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of modern day Pakistan, from 1451 to…

Fêtes des Lumières

This is a particular "photo spot" since it is more a "photo time". Lyon organizes every year around December 8th the "light party". All the city is illuminated by different artists and there are visual shows in building. If you are in France in December, it is definitely a wonderful…

Old Lyon Neighborhood

Lyon is the 2nd or 3rd biggest city in France and is located near the Alps. The "Vieux Lyon" neighborhood is a medieval part of the city and is quite unique (listed as a part of the World Heritage of Unesco). The "cathédrale St-Jean" is impressive, and if you go…

Perouges

This place is a medieval city, and you can go there anytime you want. I have enjoyed the November month for the fall colors, however other seasons will bring other opportunities. You can bring a tripod if you want, but I would mainly bring a wide-angle lens. (more…)

Cloud Gate at Night

Everyone in Chicago can tell you about "The Bean". Not everyone will remember that its official name is Cloud Gate. Made of highly polished stainless steel plates, its beautiful shape (from which it got its name) and amazing reflective properties makes this a great sculpture and a wonderful photographic opportunity.…

Cypress Mountain Viewpoint

This is one of the best locations to get beautiful panoramic views of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. On a clear day, you can see across Georgia Straight to Vancouver Island and southeast to Mount Baker in Washington State. The best time for photography here is at sunrise and sunset.…

Pont des Arts

Pont des Arts provides a great view upstream the river Seine on the island Ile de la Cité and the famous bridge Pont Neuf. The small island is worth visiting, not in the least to take a close look at the magnificent Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. But also the small alleys…
