Around The Bend A random path through gadgets, photography and when I'm lucky, a few great roads on my motorcycle ….

The Alaska book is finally done.

Cowgirl Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt I have to say, I am much more motivated when I have a deadline. Or when I have people I don’t want to disappoint. Put the two together and I might actually get something done. With the holidays approaching quickly, I wanted to get this finished but I also […]

My photo book arrived

Tree On Fire Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt I had ordered a hardcover book to show my autumn images. After what seemed like an eternity (all anticipation – the order actually shipped quite quickly), my book arrived from Apple. The images in the book turned out very well and the embossed cover is really nice. […]

Obama Rally in Columbus, OH

Change Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt Barak Obama made at least 2 stops in the battleground state of Ohio (Columbus and Cleveland).

Priority Health Ann Arbor Cycling Classic

Focused Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt Andy, Adam, and I headed downtown to shoot the Priority Health Ann Arbor Cycling Classic on Sunday. Encountered a tiny bit of rain but was otherwise a great day for both bicycling and shooting. Images from the day can be found here.

Fruits of the Earth

Still Life: Pear Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt Lisa and I rounded up some of the remaining asian and bartlett pears (what hadn’t been consumed by the crows, anyway), found some baskets, some lighting and went to town. She has such a good eye; always fun watching her work. You can see the other images […]

Next stop….Skagway

Moss and Ferns Originally uploaded by Matthew Britt The next day we docked in Skagway. Everyone was very much looking forward to the evening train ride into the mountains. Even though it was the only bad weather day we had, it was fun walking around the town and down to the Skagway cemetery and waterfall. […]
