I love the Airbus A380. They are absolutely massive jets that are quiet, comfortable, and are the absolute pinnacle of aircraft engineering in my opinion. Now, to be fair, my opinion of the aircraft is probably juuuuust a bit biased since I’ve flown on them five times and each time has been in First Class 🙂
Anyway, I was out at DFW doing some planespotting a few weeks ago and managed to position myself perfectly to capture the Qantas A380 landing from one of the longest flights in the world. I hope you enjoy it, click through for the picture!
Picture of the Week is back! Yesterday I did a day trip from Dallas to the top of Angel’s Landing at Zion National Park. For most people that’s not exactly a day trip but I’m an idiot and thought I could do it! Thankfully I made it up and back safely and made my redeye flight back to Dallas with literally minutes to spare.
This picture will look similar to one that I shared from last year’s hike, but I’m still proud of it! Last year I was going probably out of my station a bit in attempting the hike, I was out of shape and had a few beers at a buddy’s wedding in Vegas the night before. This year the hike was still difficult but I made it up the trail in much better condition than last time.

I had the joy of taking another tour with my buddies at Epic Helicopters on Friday. The heli rides are not cheap but I love taking photos from such a unique perspective. As we flew over Love Field (home of Southwest Airlines), the pilot let me know there was a Southwest Airlines flight landing underneath us. I know that sounds dangerous but we were at plenty of altitude and the tower told us to fly over the airport. As the flight landed we were in the perfect position for some great photos!

Greetings! Sorry for the delay for the PotW this week. The United States and Americans worldwide celebrated the Independence Day holiday this weekend. In that spirit I took a couple of days off of work and enjoyed a four-day weekend! Many of you have probably figured out that I have been severely stressed out recently and it finally caught up with me last week. This weekend was just what the doctor ordered: relaxing with good friends at pool parties and quite a few adult beverages!
I’m back at work and feel relaxed and ready to take on the world. I may actually book a trip to Europe to celebrate! Anyway, America loves fireworks around New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July. One of the biggest fireworks displays in the country is in Addison, Texas, a suburb very close to Dallas. They call it Kaboom Town, and for good reason. Click through to see the amazing shot!
Every once in a while I’ll take my camera if I’m walking around a place where I think there will be flowers or other interesting things to photograph. Something I’ve been getting into more and more lately is macro photography. I own the Sony 90mm FE macro lens, which is one of my favorites for portraits, but only recently I’ve started actually using it to shoot close up images.
Well that was a long explanation…I found a pretty flower that had a bunch of miniature blooms on it so I took a picture of it. Click through for this week’s Picture of the Week!
I’m back in Dallas after an exhausting trip to Asia. Check out one of my favorite pics from the trip: a MASSIVE full-size panorama of the Singapore skyline!
Well, I had a great week in Tokyo. It was a bit exhausting but was nonetheless wonderful. My schedule was so jam-packed that I didn’t have time to get out and photography much, but the last evening of my stay in Tokyo I glanced out the window of my office building and saw absolutely beautiful light over Shiba Park and the Tokyo Tower.

Konnichiwa! Reporting from Tokyo here with this week's picture of the week. I'm not sure how much time I'll have during the week to get out and take pictures so I had to do my best today. Unfortunately It rained most of the morning, only clearing up once I had made...
Want to see more pictures of the week? Check out the archive! The Cinque Terre in Italy is simply amazing. As I gushed about in my post late last week, I went to Vernazza to take some epic pictures and actually ended up with a new all-time favorite. The next...
Hello from London! I’ve been in Paris and London on a last-minute trip to support one of our business lines here. It’s been a great trip and although I haven’t had very much time to take photographs I’ve managed to grab a couple I’m proud of. So, with apologies for the delay, here are last week’s pictures of the week!
Spring has sprung in New York City, where I’ve been all weekend. In the past week the flora and fauna of Central Park have exploded in a beautiful symphony of color and smell that has left at least one travel blogger named Andy in awe. It was all I could do to turn my camera and lens towards a familiar scene.
Andy brings you some more bluebonnets from Texas this week, this time from a little town south of Dallas.
Andy took some (by his own judgment) pretty incredible sunrise pictures of Dallas the other day, very deserving of multiple pictures of the week this week!
Andy Great Walls you with his favorite picture from the epic Mutianyu Great Wall
Well I did it again: a last minute mileage run to Asia. I needed to clear my head a little from some unexpected news (everything is fine) and I had Good Friday off, so why not right? Normally when I'm in Hong Kong I head up to Lugard Road for some sunrise pictures...
That’s right, Andy finally put up an iPhone picture as the picture of the week!
Andy gets all sentimental about his first camera before he sells it.
