Weekly Photo Projects, Week 6
Dreaming of summer
This past week was pretty easy for me. The theme for the black & white group was rule of thirds, which wasn't one of my favorites because I try to shoot that most of the time. What was difficult was finding something I wanted to shoot. I looked at my other photos and saw I had a drinks sub-theme going on, so I thought I'd continue it for week 6. I think this will probably be my last drink theme photo though because I don't have any other glasses that help convey the drink. Well, except for the champagne flutes. Hmm... wonder how I can fit them in a shot. The setup for this shot is the same as the ice cube shot, just a hand held flashlight.
It's a good sign
For once I had multiple options for the +Weekly Photo Project 2013 and our theme of Signs. While walking around I spotted a "Wine tasting here --->" sign which was in the running (always important to know where the tasting is), but I liked the wineries' actual sign better.

It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
