Sunday Morning Cycling

In Artistic Photography, Street Photography by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

On Summer Sunday mornings you can usually find me riding somewhere in the foothills of Northern Colorado. I rarely take a camera with me. I want to just enjoy the ride and if I find a spot that’s worth photographing I’ll go back later and take my time making some images. Going out photographing with fellow cyclists at ideal times …

Sometimes you turn a corner and do a double take. Am I really seeing this? Yep, that is a shop filled with nothing but cassette tapes. The thing that is both beautiful and frustrating about traveling in Morocco is that the country is stuck in an ancient time and happy to remain so. We stop in Fes for a rest …

Medinas of Fes Morocco

In International People, Street Photography, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Of all the market images I have from Morocco, this one from an afternoon lost in the Fez Medina is one of my favorites. I was there at the New Year which meant the streets were ridiculously crowded. I went into the streets with just my camera. I didn’t take the tripod because if I wasn’t in the way of …

McGan Monument at Truc Bach Lake

McGan Monument at Truc Bach Lake in Hanoi Vietnam is a prized monument commemorating bringing down a U.S. fighter pilot during the Vietnamese War. I debated about whether or not to share this but it was important to my guide who was giving me the local flavor. My “tour guide” in Hanoi drove me around on the back of his motorcycle …

The Sun and Moon Pagodas on the Shanhu (Fir) Lake in Guilin China. This wasn’t something I was looking for. I was just out for a stroll around town. I guess these light up beautifully at night, but I was on my way somewhere else and stopped just long enough to take a shot during sunset. I couldn’t find a …

Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven in Beijing is a stunning place to see. I’m talking about the main temple here, not the entire park. There are smaller temples and buildings scattered around the park too, but the building you really want to see is the main temple. The temple is surrounded by a giant courtyard so that anyone who wants to …

Beijing Architecture Honors Old Traditions

In Artistic Photography, Street Photography, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Beijing Architecture varies widely because so much history is still alive and preserved here. Everywhere you go around Beijing you will see old and new structures side by side. There are definitely plenty of high rises and office buildings that remind you this is a modern mega city. The Olympic Village and the Bird’s Nest are good examples that the …

Ping Pong Park in Beijing

In Cultural Photography, International People, Street Photography by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

So you thought they practiced Kung Fu on every street corner in China eh? Not so. There are lots of parks around China, mostly for gathering and working out in groups around one shared interest or another. This one is specifically a ping pong park. Not all of them are welcoming to just anyone and in fact this one is …

Lost Highway Phone Booth

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost, Street Photography by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I found this phone booth on PCH, Pacific Coast Highway 1 in California. There is almost no cell phone reception along the coastal highway and there are actually several of these phone booths to be found at stops along the coast. I stopped at Nepenthe in Big Sur to get some dinner and rest for a bit, then I walked out towards …
