The scene in uptown Charlotte just before the July 4th fireworks kicked off. Taken from the Catalyst overlooking Romare-Bearden Park and the new BB&T Ballpark. This was the first year (2014) the uptown extravaganza was held here…I’d say they had a decent showing!

Chuck Ragan & The Camaraderie

5/6/14 - Dallas TX @ Gas Monkey Bar n Grill

I’ve been a HUGE fan of Hot Water Music since the 90’s, having the pleasure of seeing them several times over the years. I was introduced to Chuck Ragan’s solo career a couple years back, but up until now have never seen him perform. Let’s just say he didn’t disappoint.

Fucking love this guy!!

Charlotte Panorama

Link to a photo on my Flickr page that I took in Charlotte, NC — AKA “The Queen City” — from an apartment complex called The Catalyst in the 3rd Ward. Basically that’s our fancy way of saying the southwest quadrant of the city.

It was taken a couple of weeks ago while watching Bubba win the Masters at a friend’s place and a day game in progress at the brand spankin’ new BB&T Ballpark. 

I’m pretty happy with how this “shot” turned out. It’s made up of 18 total shots, 6 shots of each section (left, center, right) combined into 3 HDR images using Photomatix. The 3 resulting images were then combined into a panoramic using Photoshop, with some final tweaks performed in Lightroom to produce the final image.

A few of my favorite shots from an epic 10 day snowboarding trip in March 2014 to Big Sky, Montana (along with the first shot from our layover in Chicago O’Hare).

Last fall, Big Sky took control of two adjoining ski resorts, Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks, which combined allows the resort to claim “The Biggest Skiing In America”. The skiing was indeed BIG, and is at the top of my list of favorite resorts I’ve visited over the last 5+ years. If you haven’t been and enjoy skiing/boarding at any level, this one needs to be at the top of your bucket list!
