A Little Bit of Denver Lately

I've been carrying around my camera much more and recently had company in town so photo touring was a must. Here are some shots from this spring around Denver highlighting some festivals and places around downtown. Enjoy this short and sweet set!

First let's take a visit back to the old rail bridge..

First time I've ventured here (shame I know). It was delicious!

Nothing like a $2 beer to end the night at Sputnik. (Along with some amazing corn dogs)

Framing the picture. It's hard to tell in this shot but the mountains looked amazing that day.

A little bit of Comic Con..

Closed off streets for a festival calls for placing-camera-in-the-middle-of-the-road shots..

It was very interesting to see what people write on this. Some funny, some dark and some really deep.

You can probably get a good idea of what we were trying to do.. It just wasn't working.


A Little Bit of Denver Lately by Ryan Dravitz, on Flickr

"In order to give effect to the oft expressed intention of the late Mayor Robert W Speer the government of the City and County of Denver Colorado here records with grateful appreciation of the name of civic benefactors who by gifts of material character have added to the beauty or to the distinction of this city"

And that's it! Thanks for stopping by!

Looks like you are putting that wide angle to good use. Love that first shot with the light reflecting off the rails. I was in town to visit friends last weekend and saw some of comic con craziness. Nice set.

Thanks! I've pretty much been using my wide-angle as my everyday lens. It just trumps anything else I have right now. Loved the comic con crowd. Too much fun!

Very nice and colorful pics! Thanks for sharing, RyanD!

I´ve liked the colours of those paintings in the floor, and the snowy Rocky Mountains in the background. Lovely!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Somehow I missed this the first time. These are really nice. Love the contrast in that second timelapse shot.
