FotoWeek 2010

During FotoWeek 2010 in Washington, D.C., different types of photos are projected on the outside of various buildings. The images below are photos from the new book THE PRESIDENT'S PHOTGRAPHER: Fifty Years Inside the Oval Office that were displayed on the outside wall of the Newseum.

While taking the photos, I was struck by how appropriate the words on the outside of the museum were to the photos being displayed, especially the second one of a frustrated Hurricane Katrina survivor.

"Oh Snap" - Week In The Life At Goddard

The last week in October 2010, Goddard Space Flight Center conducted a program for employees called "Oh Snap." The idea was to have employees take their own cameras and document the people, the buildings and the activities that  make up the center,  I didn't much of a chance to play with my camera due to a busy week but did manage to get a couple of shots.  Enjoy!

Several employees took advantage of pretty fall colors that were on display around the lake that is on the center grounds and submitted shots in bold color. . I decided to take a different approach and shoot the lake with my little infrared camera. The Hubble Space Telescope looks at the universe in the infrared spectrum so I figured why not do the same to the center that is called "Home of the Hubble."

Building 32 at Goddard contains many of our Earth scientists so it seems very appropriate to show how the building interacts with Mother Nature!

I've always thought the lobby inside Building 32 had a bit of a space ship loot k to it. Late on the last day of the "Oh Snap" program, I tried to get a few shots of employees leaving the "mother ship."

Even though I didn't get a chance to shoot more during the official week-in-the-life program, my hope is to get some interesting shots in the coming months. Stay tuned for more!
