Lazy Urban Landscape
Port of San Francisco Long Exposure
The theme over at +The Patch - PhotogrAphy Themed CHallenge was Urban Landscape. I didn't have a chance to shoot for that week, but since I was going through my archives and cleaning them out I ran across some San Francisco shots that I felt would work. For choices I wanted to choose a photo I hadn't used before and hadn't processed before. This is obviously the Port of San Francisco with a ferry coming in taken from pier 14.
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.
