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!
I think I found the source of California’s current drought problems!
Getting today’s photo done while out to lunch. It’s so nice to get out in the middle of the day for a short little walk and photo break!
My housemate recently installed a ceiling fan in the computer room, which is pretty great since it’s getting bit hot in there as the summer comes into full swing (plus, y’know, computers tend to generate a bit of heat.)
As is often my way, I had to take a photo of it. Ceiling fans are a frequent subject, mostly because they tend to have lights involved.
Belinda Carlisle (of the Go Go’s) performing this afternoon in downtown SLO.
Did a little location scouting and venue tour this evening for an event I’m shooting next week. The location (Tooth & Nail Winery) is pretty fantastic!
I’ve been wanting to get a nice pair of wireless headphones, and now that Beats is technically a part of Apple, I decided I had to go for those. They take a lot of criticism that the price doesn’t match the quality, but then again, so does Apple and I’ve always preferred Apple’s products to others. But I tend to care a lot about polished product design and visual flair. The fold up design, metal hinges, light up battery meter, and yes, the color, really helped sway me. But it was the fact that these included a case that finally pushed me over the edge. Well, that and the whole being owned by Apple thing…
Oh, and taking a photo of the side of your hard is pretty much a total pain in the ass…
I see that someone in the city planner’s office was really out of ideas…
While I do enjoy both of the photographs I took to create this, perhaps the thing that intrigues me the most about it, is that they were both taken while standing in the exact same spot. With a narrow field of view, all it takes is a slight change of direction to see an entirely different world.
When I saw the commandment to “Instagram the Burger” I just knew what I had to do for photo of the day. (Note: no Instagramming was actually done…)
