Showcase USA Photography

This photo was taken in Houston, TX in 2007, when we visited my sister-in-law and their kids. The four bicycles line up in front of the house just make it a perfect subject.


I also made this photo into a blog header image for my personal blog. It become one of the  most viewed pictures.

Face Wall

This is a very colorful wall painting, when I took photowalk in San Francisco, CA. This really make difference to the community when people walk by. It also shows happy people supposed to be.

I did enhance the photo with saturated color and higher contrast. You don’t really pay attention on the windows.

I recently discovered the new face wall at Flagstaff, where I had good time taking many HDR Photos.

Lovely Old Couple

How lovely these old couples are? I was taking a photowalk in San Francisco, CA. These two old people walked slowly crossing the street with holding hands. This is so far the most romantic photo I’ve ever take other than the “Two of US” photo.

My wife and I have been together for over 23 years. We still have long way to go, but I would love to take her hand and travel around the world just like these two lovely couples.

This lighthouse is located at the harbor in Los Angels. We were on our cruise trip to Mexico in 2006.  I saw this lighthouse in the middle of nowhere outside the harbor. I guess whoever worked at the place have a long walk.Lighthouse Log Angels

This photo was taken with my Nikon D70S. You will see some new photos post in the coming days about my Mexico trip.


I really like photos of Kids, because they are so innocent. Their facial expression often made me smile. They are the future. I took my niece Jassie’s photo at my uncle-in-law’s big house in LA in 2006. She is such a sweet baby and laugh maker. I do believe she will rule the world one way or the other. There are several shots in this post.

Which one you like most?

Jessie Rules

The following photo just make me laugh. She looks like the boss of big corporation. She rules everything. 🙂 This is my favorite one!

Jessie Rules

What a happy boss, isn’t she? She said “Let’s get the profit report. We are doing very well this year. You all are making me very happy!” 🙂

Jessie Rules

Once again, she proves she got the talent, skills and power to rule the world.

She is also very creative. She can play piano too!Jessie and Piano

All these photos are taken by my old Nikon D70S with flash light. I am really happy about the result. Without any retouching or adjustment, they looks fantastic. I was not really seriously interested in portrait photography until I got the Nikon SB-600 Speedlight flashlight.

Again, which photo do you like most?

Sheriff On the Train

This is an accident shot when we took the train to Grand Canyon, Arizona. He is actor who play the sheriff who is trying to catch the robberies. He came suddenly before I was ready to take a shot. So his face was cut off, but that make this photo so special. I was surprised that he looked at me and say “Shoot me!” Ok. I got it. So I pickup the camera and shoot.

Camera: Nikon D70S

This is a photo in reply to Kristi’s Alternative Perspective of the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. I always like to look up the architecture. Especially, I like take sculptures in Las Vegas. This photo was taken with the very old Sony Cyber 3.3MP (My first digital camera ever) without the tripod in front of Caesars Palace hotel in 2005. I like the golden color lion decoration and the reflection of the light on the black column. I also realize that the photo is has huge noise. I can’t complaint the camera which is the first generation of the point and shoot digital camera.

I am going back to take another shot in the future using my Canon 7D and turn that into my new HDR image.

I took the following building in New York in 2004. Can’t remember what the building is.

Look Up New York

Here are some extra photos I took from the same perspective on Flickr. I took them with my Nikon D70S back in 2006, which is my early stage of digital photography.

The first one is the Borders book store on Mill Ave, Tempe, Arizona near Arizona state university.

The second one is an abandon building near ASU A Mountain.

Blue & White

I think I can do much better job to touch up the pictures and make them look cleaner and sharper.

Horse Sedona

Can’t resist to take photos of this horse sculpture at Sedona, Arizona. The horse looks very alive and vivid. Sedona, AZ is a great place to take photos of art works and the red rocks. Here is another one that caught my attention. Blue sky, red mountain and horse – A perfect combination!

Really. I like Canon 7D. You can see how much detail the camera can capture.
