Weekly Photo Projects, Week 37
I almost didn't use this shot for the +Project 52 B&W theme of Sports this past week. I had visions of capturing someone serving, but there was no one playing when I stopped by, and I couldn't begin to figure out what would be needed to shoot myself serving. I wish I had a slightly wider lens to get the corners, I'm right up against the fence as it is, but it turned out all right. In terms of post processing I smoothed out the area behind the baseline so bike marks wouldn't be so visible. I like how peaceful the photo looks.
Winter is coming
I wanted a shot that showed the end of summer and winter coming, but this is all I got. I do like the spiderwebs and stuff caught in them and the detail in the flower.

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.
