Yes, I’m still here!

It’s true, the blog hasn’t had photo of the day in a while, but that doesn’t mean it stopped. No, it’s just that while out of town for the weekend and then recovering from a cold, I’ve decided that perhaps having photo of the day both here and on Flickr is a bit of an annoying (and redundant) hassle.

So instead of posting to both Flickr and here every single day, I’ve decided to experiment with some changes. Photo of the day will continue to be on Flickr (just as it always has and has been for the past few days), but the blog will start to serve a different purpose and might not always be updated daily. Most likely, I’ll do some occasional “catch-up” posts that include photos of the day from the past week or so, or perhaps only just some highlights. Not quite sure about exact timing yet, but I’ll try a few things and see how it goes.

It’ll also be a place for writing more about photography when I get the chance and posting photo sets.

In any case, to check out the past few photos of the day, head on over to Flickr! At least until I have a chance to get this place caught up.

Cheers,

Brian

Even a simple fence post is interesting when viewed pretty close.

The new macro lens allows for a lot of new possibilities when shooting my computer case once more.

I know you can’t really see him here, but I went and saw Willie Nelson (& Allison Krauss) playing at the Vino Robles Ampitheater this evening :-)

Twerk. It’s what the graffiti commands you to do.

Shot a wedding today. That was tiring, but fun! Amazing venue, too. I love how it looked as the sun was almost down. Fortunately, my camera can shoot at ISO 12,800 reasonably well.

Was out at the Paso Robles Inn this evening to shoot an event. Since it’s an event I’m shooting for someone else, I decided not to use one as photo of the day, and instead, grabbed a shot of the nice neon signs while I was heading back to my car.

Got a new lens today, the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro. It’s my first macro lens, and it’s pretty damn nice. I had a chance to play with it last fall when a friend loaned me his, and I knew I eventually had to have it. Finally, I do!
