I figure I'd start the 2017 year off with a light blog post related to Photography. It regularly relates to architecture which surrounds me from day to day. I feel as though I've begun to established myself as an architect as well as an emerging architectural blogger. I am happy, blessed and thankful for where I am. I am working fervently to improve my skills as a photographer. Just as architecture and blogging, it's a craft which requires hours of practice to hone the skills necessary to be great.
This is a follow-up to my original post after first entering the Instagram world: Instagram, Architecture & Photography. I can honestly say I can see the change in my photography for the better. My eye is becoming more keen to where to look, how to operate the gear I have and compose interesting images. My editing style has transformed also. I will say switching from Pentax to Canon gear has played a big part in the transition (but that's for another post). I 'gram on two accounts @RegisteredArchitect and @ArchitectOWL.
See below for some of my favorite shots from 2016:

Living and working around New York City, there's a limitless amount of great "subjects" to capture.
I wouldn't be a family man without some shots of my wife & children and some of our expeditions.
