Miami

Had to go to Miami for work. I’m sure people will disagree but I don’t like South Beach, it’s really not my thing. Also didn’t have a lot of time to get pictures but here are some.

  • Aperture: ƒ/6.3
  • Camera: Canon EOS 6D
  • Focal length: 300mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/100s

#22 Wildlife

Not Batman and I drove down to San Diego recently and stopped at an overlook near Camp Pendleton. There were a ton of ground squirrels there and signs saying not to feed them. They were being fed by pretty much everyone but us. Ground squirrel.jpg

  • Aperture: ƒ/10
  • Camera: Canon EOS 6D
  • Focal length: 300mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/200s

# 34 Macro

I love my macro lens. It has an extension tube so I can shoot even closer. I also have a ring flash for it. When the camera is all together, it looks impressive. I might have to show a picture of it at some point. Anyway, I love taking macro pictures of flowers, it’s crazy how much detail you can see. The flower veins (I know that’s not the right term but I don’t care, I’m not looking it up) are really interesting to me.

# 19 Circles

I was originally thinking I was going to do something with coins but that idea ended up not appealing to me too much. I’m still going to do something with coins, I just don’t know quite what yet. I did like how this came out though. And since I’m the one making the rules, I say it fits.

# 44 Collection

I collect books. I suppose you can say I collect bookshelves too but that number is tiny in comparison. There’s a Japanese term called “tsundoku” that means to acquire reading material but to let them pile up without reading them. I suppose I’m a little guilty of that. I won’t even tell you how long my to-read pile is. That said, I DO read, I just buy faster. This picture has all books I have read but not all the books I have read, if that makes any sense. There’s another bookcase with unread books. And another one with cookbooks. I may have an addiction.
