A blog about photography, reading, the San Jose Sharks, and anything else that comes to mind.
Weekly Photo Projects, Week 10
A little late with the blog posting because I was a little late with one of the photos for this week. For +Project 52 B&W I went and grabbed a quick shot of Pewetoll Island (also shown here). The choppier water left me unsure about how the reflection would turn out, but I like that it's not as detailed as past shots I have of it. I love the detail in the island and trees. This G3 is really impressing me, still.
I have a timetable for +Weekly Photo Project 2013. I like to shoot and upload by Sunday so I can publish my blog post on Monday. I got out to shoot more this week, but each time out I was too wrapped up in what I was shooting that I forgot about shooting for this. Also in the back of my mind was the thought that I could stage something or find something in the garden to shoot. And then Sunday afternoon hit. I found these webs on the side-yard fence and shot a couple frames of them then went looking for other stuff. Got them into Aperture and these were the clear winners (once I threw out a version of a shot I'd used before for something else). I really like how you can easily see the area in focus both on the fence and the webs.

*Tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Is this thing even working? Do I even know how to do this anymore? Do I even want to do this? All good questions, with some (hopefully) being answer with this post. Meaning if you can see it, it's on and working. The other questions? Well, who knows at this point. But, if you're seeing this, congrats! You probably had the RSS feed (which may or may not still be working), or some other little service I was using over a year ago is still shooting this out to social media. What brought me back? Am I back?
What brought me back is easy. A couple days ago +Blogger released a, well, blog, detailing some new themes: https://blogger.googleblog.com/2017/03/share-your-unique-style-with-new.html. I didn't hate them, and in fact liked one (the one hopefully you see here) and I went poking around, and re-kicking the tires to see if anything else about Blogger had changed. On first glance, nothing else has changed, which is both good and bad.
Am I back?…
It's been a while since I've put anything up here, but I haven't been neglecting photography. If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or my favorite mobile sharing/editing tool VSCO Cam you'll see I've been shooting and editing lately more often with my Moto X and the VSCO Cam mobile app. But there's been some interesting news lately in the photo world that had me interested enough to actually do a post.
If you've noticed I have a thing for photographing lighthouses. This is a little farther up the hill from my earlier post and is pretty simple, as lighthouses go. It has a great view of Cape Blanco. A year after taking this set of shots and I'm a little disappointed in my framing. All of my shots of this lighthouse make it look like it's on a grassy hill that could either be on the coast or 10 miles inland. This shot at least has a sliver of the cove in the background.
