Yes, the center watermark is distracting but I don't want my photo stolen.

During and after the aftermath of Cat 5 Typhoon Haiyan (Philippine name: Yolanda) it served as a refuge for survivors.

This photo of the Tacloban Astrodome taken on May 27, 2014 is perhaps the last one of the interior before the fire that hit it on May 29, 2014.

Tanauan Tent City by alabang, on Flickr

Tanauan National High School is the site of the Tent City of Tanauan. Some 10,000 people live here and other close by areas for the past 7 months after November's Typhoon Haiyan while waiting for their permanent housing to be completed.

The heat index on the day I photographed this was at 41C or 106F.

The common worry amongst the people living here is the incoming typhoon season that may yield another typhoon like Haiyan/Yolanda.

Here are couple of images that I like, though both would be better if I could reshoot. The first was in Arches national park and the second at the hood view campground on timothy lake near mt hood.
The arches shot was supposed to have stars outside the arches, but no one told the weather that we needed clear skies...
The milky way needed a higher iso or longer exposure to be a little better. Next time

I bought my copy shortly after it was first released. It's one of my favorite creative lenses. I've never sold a single print from using it...but I always get nice comments from people when they see the results. I get a lot of enjoyment from it, but it is a two trick pony...and needs to be used sparingly. But it does add to a portfolio very nicely.
