My 9-11

By David Hume Kennerly | Sep 11, 2014

The evening of September 10, 2001 I was having dinner with Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne in the VP residence. They were old friends from the President Ford days when I was the head White House photographer, and Dick Cheney was deputy chief of staff, then the chief after his boss Donald […] Read More

Warsaw Scenes

By David Hume Kennerly | Sep 10, 2014

Here are some random snaps from my first full day in Warsaw. I strolled around the old city on a Saturday afternoon, a place jumping with tourists, and brides and grooms having their wedding photos taken, a local tradition. I came across a military ceremony that was honoring they fallen at the Tomb of the […] Read More

The 100-Minute Photo Workout

By David Hume Kennerly | Sep 3, 2014

Yesterday I gave myself a visual challenge: Shoot 20 or more unique, (and hopefully good), photos where I take pictures all the time, and do it in 100 minutes or less. (I had to be somewhere at 9 am!). This is similar to what I did every single day last year in pursuit of pictures […] Read More

Iceland – Day 5 and 6 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Sep 1, 2014

Day 5 started with a spectacular cloud-encrusted sunrise that provided a dramatic backdrop to the Hotel Ranga where we were staying.  Our destinations today were a geyser, a waterfall, and a bike ride along a lake. Iceland has a multitude of water-related activities, whether it is frozen or just flowing. Sunrise over the Hotel Ranga. […] Read More

Iceland – Day 4 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 31, 2014

Day Four started with close encounters of the cow kind. A large herd of the critters gathered behind a fence to watch as we prepared to leave for the day’s activities. James Kennerly was the first to spot them, and in no time they had lined up behind him as if he was their paramount […] Read More

Iceland – Day 3 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 28, 2014

We started our day by strapping on crampons and heading up to the Falljokull Glacier (actually, “Jökull” means “glacier” in Icelandic). A river runs under the glacier, and most of our merry band filled their water bottles from the frigid, sparkling, delicious stream. From where we stood, the top of the glacier field is filled […] Read More

Iceland — Day 2 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 26, 2014

On Day 2 of our Iceland trip we trekked into Skaftafell National Park, part of the Vatnajokull National Park, to see the Svartifoss waterfall. The rushing river cascades over black hexagonal lava columns, and reminded me of the Giant’s Causeway, a similar natural wonder that I saw earlier this year in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
