Sometimes, depending on the route that I take, I pass this fence. It is an interesting fence because of the missing board and the feeble attempt to fill the board with a rock and another board. Every once in a while, a dog will be present, pressing his nose through the opening. I want that shot! However, every time that I have my camera with me, he’s nowhere to be found, camera-shy canine. Now that I think about it, he/she…

Every once in a while, I get the urge to try something different. A few weeks ago, I started looking at design magazines, books, and videos, trying to get an idea of what interior design is about. I cleaned up around the apartment, bought a few plants, nothing major. The place does look better, primarily because it is clean. LOL. Also, I’m pretty impressed. I’ve had the plants for a few weeks and they actually seem to be, dare I…

Canon S90 – Perfectly capable! Thanks to Monte for tweeting a link to this article, Unplug Your Life, written by Richard Wong. It’s a short, but good read. I enjoyed it. Richard talks about ‘unplugging’ while on vacation. The article, for me makes sense; Richard says that he doesn’t own a smartphone and talks about it being a waste of time to spend time on the Internet while on vacation. I would agree with that, in part, but I think…

Nikon D300 – Nikkor 100 mm @ f/8 1/125 Another fun little experiment that I’ve wanted to do, take the same photo with both cameras. Here’s a shot of the moon from last night taken from my porch. Both shots were taken with the same lens, but using different camera bodies. As you can see, the D300 appears much larger given the crop factor of 1.5. I took both of these images with the same lens, around 2 or 3…

Every once in a while, on a slow day, I’ll do what I call link hopping. That is, for those of you bloggers who visit my site, I’ll visit yours and see who you have on your blogroll (that reminds me, I need to do a better job of keeping my up-to-date). If you don’t have a blogroll, then I’ll read comments and click though to some of the commentators’ sites. Then, I’ll visit a site or two, see if…

I am following, with great interest and admiration, Ove’s 365 project. That is, one photo a day for the entire year. No small undertaking, from my point of view, yet, there are a few who do that and more, like Andreas and Juha. I have great admiration for their stamina and dedication. I imagine that I might be able to do it, physically, go out or stay in and take a photo a day, but mentally, I don’t know. I’ve…
