I didn’t have an image for today, but this evening’s beautiful sunset took care of that. This was the view from the street directly in front of my driveway.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 50mm. 1/15 second at f/5.6, ISO 100.

Early this year I posted a couple of close-up images of the well winterized Job’s Tears plants we had growing in the yard. This year’s plants were especially nice, and catching them before the winter rains set in makes for cleaner looking seed pods and dry leaves. The pods are commonly used as beads.
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II. 1/80 second at f/2.8, ISO 100.

“Stop complaining about the weather on your blog!” says Maggie. “OK!” says I. Today, it was picture postcard beautiful at the Golden Gate.

The warmish, hazy days around the Bay Area continue to be uninspiring. The lack of wind has left a persistent, LA-like brownish haze over the bay. It’s the middle of December, and during the daylight hours, except for being ten degrees cooler in temperature, it seems like the middle of October. So… I’m going close-up, and using my iPhone more because it’s handy. This image is of the remnants of what was a much more elaborate flower arrangement in the kitchen area of our office.
iPhone/Hipstamatic imaging a season change.
I have an iPhone, the Hipstamatic camera app, and I work with computers–so this shot was more or less inevitable. Here’s an abstract of where my right hand spends a lot of it’s time during a typical work day.
