Fantastic Photo of the Day 

Looking for photography tips, I recently read over the wonderful photo article compiled by The Atlantic's Alan Taylor in which he shares a number of the early entries from National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest and arranges them according to preference. While I found each consecutive image breahtaking in its own right, none was more arresting and powerful than the portrait of a Sadu pilgrim from Varanasi, India taken by Craig Stevenson (shown below). It is one of the most engaging phtos I have ever seen and I believe any photographer would be proud to have captured it. Enjoy.

Grand Central Terminal Celebrates its 100th Birthday

Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the opening of the magnificent Grand Central Terminal in New York City. As a commuter, I travel to and from Grand Central twice a day during the week and I must admit that I take the splendid sprawling structure for granted a great deal of the time. As I hurry past to catch the next train, I regard the tourists wandering around or staring open mouthed at the magnificent ceiling with annoyance, viewing them as an obstacle constantly threatening to impede my progress. Perhaps this is a little bit of the New Yorker attitude settling in, but when I take a moment to reflect, I can certainly understand why people visiting GCT for the first time are so awe struck by it. As a homage to the great building, I have put together a slideshow out of the compilation of images created by Alan Taylor in his In Focus photo article, Grand Central Terminal Turns 100. The slideshow is comprised of memorable photos taken of Grand Central since it was first built. Enjoy.

Five Favorite Photos from President Obama's 2nd Inauguration

In honor of the extremely moving Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama which took place on Monday, I have chosen the five photos I felt were most emblematic of the wondrous occasion as a whole. Enjoy.

Five Flavors of Fall

Fall is very much upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than to look at some of the fantastic pictures taken around the world over the past two months. I have chosen my five favorites from an assortment of sources that include Associated Press, Getty Images, Reuters. To see more great images, go to The Big Picture photo article, Autumn 2012: Celebration of the season or the In Focus photo article, Fall Is in the Air. Enjoy.

The larger males can also be seen clashing antlers with rival males. (Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)Stars shine above the cabin used by shepherd Pierre Deval in Arvieux, France, on September 14, 2012.
