Well it's about time. I've been geocoding my photos for some time now, but it doesn't really help if you don't use it. Now on the blog there will be a map showing you exactly where that photo was taken. It took a bit of playing around to get it to work, but it was exciting because now I'll be able to share great spots to take photos around Rhode Island. Which was my original goal with starting a website around photography.
Oh and before you ask, I'm using a GeoPic II to tag the latitude and longitude to the photos. It does it the second I press the shutter button so no thinking necessary. And it also makes it much more accurate. You can check em out here:
The paths inside Goddard Park are pretty awesome when the sun is starting to set. The bits of sunlight on the trees is great. This photo doesn't do it justice.
This is the Oracle plane that moves fast and does all sorts of tricks, here the pilot was taking off at the Rhode Island Air Show.
This is a photo I took in Providence, Rhode Island, of Waterfire. I took it back in July 2007, but recently looked at it when I discovered someone purchased a 30x40 print of it! The Waterfire Gallery is on my top list of favorite photos. This particular photo I took with my D50, I look forward to going this coming year with my D300 and see the results that has.
The first bit of wildlife you see at the Norman Bird Sanctuary is this fish pond behind their building. They are bright orange fish, and you may see some birds in the trees nearby.
The Beavertail Lighthouse is easy to get to from land, but a view from water is really great. You can see all the rocks the lighthouse is protecting boats from hitting, and all the people visiting the lighthouse.
Year round, Wilson Park is a great place to visit. These trees really stuck out to me with their black and white spots.
