Weekly Photo Projects, Week 33
Through the Archway
For +Project 52 B&W our theme was Long Exposure. This shot came to me by accident. I had originally meant for it to be a super color sunset shot (see this post), but that just wasn't happening. So I regrouped and gave it a black and white treatment. I'm quite happy with how the water turned out; enough blurring to give a sense of movement but still nicely defined.
Growth on a Rock
This is one of those photos that satisfies the theme but not much else. Texture was the theme for +Weekly Photo Project 2013. As I mentioned in my G+ post that went with the photo, I feel like I should caption this with, "I woke up at 5am on a Sunday for good sunrise photos and all I got was this stupid rock". Well I got this rock and my disappearing profile photo, so not a complete loss?

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.
