Norway, Part 1

Norway, Part 1

Part "one" of the Norway series is all about the first full day of the trip. This is a transitional post - the day after this one is very heavy with pictures and needs its own entry. As a result, this post is a little light. I still like what's within, though.

10 Years Ago Today: Boston Lightning

10 Years Ago Today: Boston Lightning

Today is the 10th year anniversary of one of my favorite photos I've ever taken, simply titled "Boston Lightning." It's an easy date to remember because it was taken on my sister's 18th birthday (happy 28th birthday, Kelly) and five days before my 20th birthday (...oh no). I thought it would be fun to relive the moments leading up to this picture, and describe how I got it.

Norway, Part 0

Hello! This is the first part of my upcoming travelogue series on my recent trip to arctic Norway (with a bit of Sweden and Finland thrown in). The trip spanned twelve days, 4000 miles driven, about 7000 digital pictures, and one roll of infrared film.

2017 in Review

2017 in Review

A good photography year

As 2017 winds down, I think that it is a good idea to reflect upon the year that was. Self-reflection is a good way to improve, and it's important to do every now and then. It's also a good excuse to share some of my favorite photos from this year, and describe why they will stick with me going forward.

My new home

Hello, and welcome to the redesigned dbrim.com!

For a few years now, it has been clear that I have needed a more cohesive web presence for my photography. Between Twitter, Flickr, 500px, Instagram, and my old blog, my photos were spread across the internet. Every platform had a different ideal use case, and there was no cohesive central hub. Now when people ask me "where can I find your photography?" I can actually have a good answer. My various other social media homes are not going anywhere, but now they can point to this as a central source.

Bolivia, Part 1

Bolivia, Part 1

Desaguadero to Sucre

Bolivia! Bolivia was always the ultimate destination of this trip, and you’ll see why as we continue through the series.

We left off at the overland border crossing at Desaguadero, where it took us five hours to successfully get into Bolivia. As a result of the delays we suffered, we were extremely behind schedule, especially if we wanted to see much more of Lake Titicaca. We had to be in La Paz very early the next morning, and by the time we successfully crossed we only had about four hours of daylight left. Our options were limited.

Peru, Part 7

Nazca to Desaguadero

It’s time for the final part of the photo series in Peru. This post covers two and a half days, from Nazca to the border crossing into Bolivia in Desaguadero. As such, this is a very long post, but there is a good reason for that. The first day of this post is not interesting enough to stand on its own. The second day is, but then there’s only a half day left before crossing the border and I want to keep the parts of this series split by country. The result isn’t bad for you - this part has 40 photos in all!

Andahuaylas to Nazca

The morning started off much like the previous evening ended. We were now on the other side of the city Andahuaylas and on top of a different pass. The tallest mountains and snow caps were no longer visible. Despite all of that, we still got to witness fog crawling up the side of the valleys without obscuring our view to the distance. Rising early also gave us a chance to see some wonderfully warm light on the foreground.

Peru, Part 5

Cusco to Andahuaylas

The start of Part 5 of this photo series is also the beginning of a new chapter: it’s when the road trip began. Starting on November 16th and ending on December 1st, this trip spanned 5000 miles, four countries, and 16500 feet of elevation. I’m not going to spoil the specifics of what we saw (you’ll have to keep reading!), but you’ll want to stay tuned for photos of some of the most other-worldly scenery on Earth. Eventually.

Machu Picchu (Day 2)

Waynapicchu is the famous spire-like mountain behind the site of the Machu Picchu ruins. It is not the only mountain to climb in the area, but it is the most recognizable. It is the peak located behind the cover photo on Part 3, and has also been in nearly every famous photo taken from the monument.
