Image Published in Shutter Magazine

Image featured in the April edition of Shutter magazine

Honored to have one of my landscape images featured and printed in the April edition of Shutter magazine. It’s an image of the Cincinnati skyline near sunset. Ironically I was attending a photography conference. I went back to my hotel room for a break and saw this happening along the way and had to capture the moment!

Falcon Heavy rocket launch puts Starman driving in space

Falcon Heavy rocket launch puts Starman driving in space on February 8, 2018

I’ve always been a big fan of space and rockets. As a boy I remember staying up late to watch the astronauts land on the moon and walk on the moon (yes I’m that old – but I was a boy back then 🙂

SpaceX had another test flight yesterday and tested their Falcon Heavy rocket on February 6, 2018. Its a good thing I don’t live down in Florida or else I would never get anything done on launch days ;-).

The CEO of SpaceX thought it would be fun to launch into outer space a $100K Tesla with a “Starman” astronaut driving at the wheel. Hey if you can afford to do it why not? I wish I could see the expression on some creatures face when they find it some day drifting out in space 🙂

Here are some more fascinating photos courtesy of SpaceX
