One of the best breakfast spots I know of is in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. Here is where Polly’s Pancake Parlor is located. I had three breakfasts there on my journey in New England. After each breakfast I would go out for a few hours of shooting on the back roads. This church is right down the road from Polly’s. The clouds that morning were dramatic. The shot was hard because I was shooting into the light. I was able to recover the image using creative processing using Capture One. This is the iconic New England church.
I have visited this unique church in Iceland many times. On my recent trip I visited it again and decided to shoot it with the iPhone and Hipstamaticapp. Iceland has some beautiful churches. Most are small and quaint but a few are really cool the way they are designed. This is one of them.
One of the prettiest places I have visited in recent years is the Dolomites in Italy. There are so many beautiful landscapes to photograph. One morning w did a sunrise shoot along a road with this church and small village in the foreground. It was one of those grand sunrises as you can see.
Some things here in the dolomites are too hard to describe. It’s all rather post cardish and just plain pretty. Like this image. Here is a church with these great mountains as a background and beautiful skies to go with it. These images are all being made as part of the Phase One PODAS workshop presently going on. We will be shooting through Saturday so expect more images.
While visiting Tuscany I loved visiting churches. These are usually very old structures and they have some very unique settings. This is a church I visited in a small village that had the crucifix hanging from the ceiling. And, when you looked up you got an incredible backdrop.
Near as I can figure and from what I have been told, many Italian families with large properties in Tuscany built their own family chapels. You can find these dotting the landscape all over Italy. This one chapel I came back to time and time again as it could be shot at different times of days and from far away or close-up. This one shot from the field in front of the chapel. The field was all yellow and I decided to use this as an extreme foreground and position the chapel in the upper right. I think it works.
