The header image I use for the blog was taken on the northwest side of the Golden Gate Bridge on an overcast day back in July 2010. I was already well into the commute photo regimen but at the time was only posting my images on Facebook for my friends to view. The blog was started that August. I got my T2i at about the same time.

Most everything in this frame is old. The “vintage” instruments and theatrical set made for some interesting compositions.

A Vespa and a Lincoln Continental, both ’60s vintage, parked under a street light. They have long since lost their showroom shine, but they still have that “cool” factor.

Last night we went out to see a friend’s band play some of their original material in a kind of theatrical setting. I brought my G11 along and took quite a few shots. I knew when I looked at the LCD screen after taking this shot that it was going to be a blog post. Sometimes you just know. The story is that the Hammond organ player is laying back while the sax player takes a solo.

I’ve been doing a fair amount of sky gazing during my vacation at the homestead–mostly while enjoying few beers out on the patio. The cirrus clouds that passed overhead during the mid-afternoon yesterday inspired me to pull out my T2i and start looking for upward angled compositions. Yesterday’s post was pairing the clouds with the patio umbrella. Today’s photo (also taken yesterday) mixes the clouds with the clothes line and a Chinese Pistache tree.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 42mm. 1/80 second at f/16, ISO 100.
