Hey all, a snap from NYC today, taken at the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. I spent about 10-15 mins enjoying some some good old fashion people watching, waiting for my moment to grab the snap that I had in my mind. The couple in the shot had been wandering about for a few minutes and then stopped in the perfect spot for my photo, they were actually taking pics of each other too. The hard bit was timing it right when there was no one else towards the front of the frame. I hope you guys enjoy…
The image was taken in the Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin, Poland. While visiting it I saw the man with his baby – also visiting the building.

The historic town of Samarkand in Uzbekistan is a crossroad and melting pot of world cultures. Founded in the 7th century B.C. as ancient Afrasiab, Samarkand had its most significant development in the Timurid period from the 14th to the 15th centuries. The major monuments include the Registan Mosque and madrasas, Bibi-Khanum Mosque, the Shakhi-Zinda compound and the Gur-Emir ensemble, as well as Ulugh-Beg’s Observatory.
A dramatic view of the drop off in water depth at Lake Mead from the Turbine section of Hoover Dam. The man made Lake created by the Dam has served as a vital fresh water supply to not only the nearby Las Vegas Valley, but also to San Bernardino, Northern Arizona and Phoenix area as well. Some 20 million or so people use this run off of the Colorado River for everyday living. Sadly, water levels cannot keep up with the overgrowth of the areas it supplies and most likely will one day run dry, unless a solution is in the works, we may be looking at the potential to experience the largest ghost towns the western hemisphere has ever seen.
