I’m enjoying a lazy Saturday. Here’s a black and white rendering of a shot I took during an overcast afternoon a while back (same day I took this shot).
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 85mm. 1/400 second at f/16, ISO 200.

In our little worlds we pass by “familiar” stuff every day that we don’t really look at. I’ve driven by this building literally hundreds of times and never stopped to take a closer look. Here’s the closer look.
Lens: 15-85mm at 22mm. 1/125 second at f/11, ISO 200.

On warm(ish), lazy weekend afternoons we like to sit out on the patio and have Micheladas (aka cerveza preparada). There are all kinds of different recipes for the drink, but we prefer vegetable (like an organic V8) to straight tomato juice. And no Worcestershire sauce for me. Miller High Life is our beer of choice because the Michelada tastes best when made with a light lager–snappy ales and dark beers are better straight up.

Two things: I’ve been using Photoshop for a very long time, and, at the end of a 12 hour day, I don’t always have the juice get out there and grab a daily snap. As a compromise, I sometimes pull up an older photo I like and tweak it ruthlessly. This is one of those occasions.

I’ve said it several times before, but stopping for a few minutes during the hectic commute and hoping to get a good photo is a crap shoot. Today, I rolled the dice and came up with an image I really have no explanation for why I like it. But like it I do. No doubt, the splash of “burgundy” (or however that color reads on your monitor) is what initially caught my eye–there was nothing else that color in the whole panorama. Hmm? I guess I said why.
