Texas State History Museum, Austin

The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum can be found about four blocks north of the State Capitol and has become another must-see location in any visit to Austin. The twenty foot high bronze star in front of the building is almost as much of a landmark these days as the capitol dome. I’ve taken many pictures of this building and the star since it opened and, if you are flying through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, you may see another of these taken on the same day as this one hanging above the western security line. That assumes, of course, that no-one has bought the space...

Chevron Building, Houston

The collection of buildings at the corner of Smith & Bell in downtown Houston, Texas has been a favourite of mine for several years.

This junction also hosts a large, circular skywalk joining all four corners and offering a great frame when shooting upwards with a very wide-angle lens. For those interested in history, although this building is currently occupied by the Chevron oil company, it was originally built as the headquarters for Enron....

Chicago Sunrise Panorama

Chicago, Illinois is one of my favorite cities. The downtown architecture is spectacular and could easily keep me occupied for a couple of weeks. This panorama was shot at sunrise on a very cold March morning when I was ill-prepared for the frigid wind off the lake. There was so much to shoot out on North Avenue Beach Pier but, after grabbing the panorama shots I wanted, I was too cold to stick around. I’ll have to get back there soon but remember to take gloves and a hat next time. Unfortunately, we can only ship gallery-wrapped prints up to 72″ wide but, if you would like a...

San Francisco Panorama

The view of downtown San Francisco from the top of Twin Peaks Boulevard is spectacular but you have to be prepared for a chilly evening since the wind up there is surprisingly strong even on evenings when the city itself is only pleasantly cool. Unfortunately, we can only ship gallery-wrapped prints up to 72″ wide but, if you would like a larger version than this and can get to Austin to pick it up, or if you would prefer an unstretched print, let us know! Prints of this image are available with widths of up to 72″. Available Sizes 72" x 27" $865.00 USD56" x...
