An in-depth look at some of my favorite photos I've taken

Photography is something I enjoy very much, and I enjoy sharing my photography with people, so here is some of the photography I have taken recently.

This photo was taken in my backyard back home. I love looking at star photography, so I decided to try it out. It took a few nights, but I eventually got it, and one night I got this picture. That streak of light on the trees is actually from the headlights of a car driving by!

I enjoy getting unusual perspectives or doing other unusual things to get cool photos. This photo of the chapel is one example of this. I walked to the middle of the quad, got on my stomach, and zoomed in so that I could get the out-of-focus grass in the foreground, because I knew it would add a lot to the photo.

Leading lines are another favorite photo technique of mine. They lead your eyes into the photo and provide some very interesting detail. I enjoy this photo because the shelves provide a cool leading effect, and the colors are pretty cool.

This photo was fun. I took it one day while walking around campus taking pictures, but when I went to edit it, it didn’t look at all interesting, so I decided to mess around and try some crazy things. I ended up making it pretty surreal looking, and I think that this version is quite a bit more interesting than the original.

I enjoy photography very much and have appreciated the way I have been able to develop it and share it.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
