Cruise Vacation

22 Jan

I went on a Caribbean cruise to Mexico, Jamaica, and Haiti. It was a much-needed relaxation from the busyness of work. The weather was perfect most days and the cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas, was fantastic.

We took a behind the scenes tour of the cruise ship, which was really cool. We visited the bridge, engine control room, backstage theater, and the crew living areas.

European Delivery 2013

20 Oct

Following in my steps with my 135i European Delivery (video), my friends and I returned to Europe this summer to pick up a 335is. My friend, Chris, decided it was time to upgrade his A6 and come over to the BMW world. We convinced him to go with a 335is and do a guy’s road trip through Europe. The three of us met in the Owner’s Lounge of the BMW Welt, where we would pick up the car and explore Europe. Our plan was to hang out in Munich, visit some friends in Hamburg, check out Porsche in Stuttgart, visit some friends in Freiburg, and head down to southern France for a few days, all while exploring some of Europe’s finest roads. Keep reading to to see what we ended up doing.

New Photography Portfolio Website

17 Mar

I am pleased to announce the launch of my new photography portfolio on photomaxwell.com.

After several years of a custom Flash-based portfolio I wrote, I decided it was time for an update. Out with old technologies, in with a new HTML5 site. The site is based on an HTML5 image viewer, which means it’s mobile-capable, which always bothered me about my old site. It also integrates with Lightroom, so updating it with new images is completely painless. Take it for a spin!

Elk Neck State Park Star Trails

11 Mar

This past weekend I went camping. Usually when I go camping, it’s far enough away from a big city that light polution is minimal. I like to bring my camera on these occasions to get some sort of star photo; whether it’s an image of the Milky Way or a star trail photo. This time, I tried for a star trail photo. I set the camera on an intervalometer to capture 29 second exposures repeatedly. The camera ran for 3 hours (346 images) before the battery died. I then combined the photos into a single image you see below that demonstrates the rotation of the earth in relation to the stars. Apparently we were right above an airport approach path, which you can see the many plane streaks across the center of the image.
