Park City, Utah – 2015 GM

With the 2016 Automattic Grand Meetup (GM) coming up so soon, I thought it was time to publish my pictures from the 2015 GM. There’s a selection here from the night photography workshop we did, as well as the photo tour with a local photographer. Equipment-wise, the digital is from my Canon 30D, and mostly the Sigma 10-20mm and Canon 200mm f/2.8L; the film is from my trusty Yashica D.

Oxford Botanic Gardens

I took my iPhone lens attachments to the Oxford Botanic Gardens and had some fun with macro flowers. It’s actually quite tricky; depth of field is tiny, and if there’s even a light breeze, getting the focus right is quite hard. Regardless, I got some nice shots. Edited with Snapseed on the iPhone.

Detroit Film

Grab bag of Detroit images taken on black and white film with my Yashica D TLR. Some are from the same UrbEx tour as the previous posts, while a few others are from other random Detroit trips.

Detroit UrbEx: Part 4

Part 4 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was an old church and attached school. Some interesting objects and topical graffiti here, including an old piano.

Detroit UrbEx: Part 3

Part 3 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was a maintenance building for Detroit Water & Waste trucks. It’s now unused, and has been taken over by graffiti artists, skateboarders, and the homeless. Some amazing artwork here too.

Detroit UrbEx: Part 2

Part 2 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was a much larger set of buildings that was most recently used by Chrysler as a research and testing office. Some great graffiti art and cool old logos are included.

Great views from the top, and a fun cable car ride up.

The classic. Pretty cool in person.

Great views from up at Christo Redentor too.
Rio Aqueduct
Even has a tram line running on top of it.
Rio Cathedral
Looks like a pyramid outside, but just stunning inside. What the Catholic Cathedral in San Francisco wishes it was.
Gilt
A representative example of the rococo churches we saw in Rio.
