Mostly photography but with bits of running, tech, and musings on life

Creating photo of the day often involves taking many photos, as I frequently start off with no idea of what I want to use as the subject. Sometimes I just pick an area and start looking around and taking shots to see what appeals to me. Today, I had whittled it down to three images and was having a tough time picking the official one. Ultimately, this detail shot of a rather weathered generator won, largely because my other two candidates were subjects I’ve used before, whereas I don’t believe I’ve ever featured this generator (even though it’s off to the side of my driveway).

A foggy morning in SLO lends itself towards somewhat surreal imagery. Also, I’ve got to add that I just love how many trees this town has. From some vantage points, you can barely even see the buildings!

Got to try a beer from Costa Rica over at Spike’s this evening. Working on my 50 beers around the world card! (I started it back in 2011 though, and I still have a long way to go…)

It was such a perfect day to have lunch outdoors at the deli in the village of Arroyo Grande.

I had heard some good things about the HBO series True Detective and so last weekend I finally got around to checking it out (thank you HBO GO app!)

I rather liked how the light on this worked out – with the flower pot standing out very nicely from the fence. Plus, it was a nice test of using a really high ISO on the 6D. Impressive low-light performance on this thing.
