Shahid Abdul Alim Park, designed by Shatotto in Dhaka, Bangladesh is a project that was commissioned in order to re-establish a community meeting area, recreation center, and point of civic pride in one of the most densely populated cities on earth. For years this area was used as a dumping ground and had fallen into neglect; the re-vitalization is an effort to clean up many of these parks and improve the lives of millions of Dhaka residents. .

The home of renowned author Thomas Mann, designed by modernist architect JR Davidson in Pacific Palisades, CA. After his exile from Nazi Germany, Mann lived at the house between 1942 and 1952 before his emigration to Switzerland, where he spent the last three years of his life. The house was sold by Mann to an American lawyer and his wife, and remained in their family until its 2016 purchase by the German government. After extensive restoration, the house has become an artist's residence, like the nearby Villa Aurora, which was the home of fellow German exile Lion Feuchtwanger.

This was one of the funnier moments of shooting for my new book - I had tried to get this shot once before but was immediately denied by security guards as soon as I set up the tripod. The good thing was as a result of this failure, I knew exactly where to place the tripod and when to put it there. So I came back a few weeks later. I sat at street level in my car with the camera leveled, the focus dialed in (and focus ring gaff taped so it wouldn't move) and the camera settings ready to go - f8, iso 200, half a second, bracketed +/- one stop each way. All I had to do was put the leveled camera in the right spot, press the shutter, wait 2 seconds for the self-timer to count down, and the shot would be in the bag. Click, click, click. Done.

Right at twilight, I started my trek up to the roof. As the top 3 floors of the parking garage were closed, I knew as soon as the cameras saw me getting up to those levels they'd send a guard out to ask me wtf I was doing and to tell me to stop. 
I walked up the stairs with the camera and tripod in a canvas bag (concealing it from security cameras) and once I got to the rooftop, just set it up on the ledge, squared it up, pushed the shutter, and just like that had the shot. No more than 20 seconds after I got to the roof, I hear a door slam and hey kid, hey hey! what are you doing? Oh, sorry, what? I  can't take pictures up here? I'll leave. See ya, chump!
