As I’ve said before, I love the G11’s articulating screen because it makes framing from physically difficult angles easy. In this case, I had the camera positioned under the dry Mexican sunflower pods with the lens pointed nearly straight up towards the sky–and I didn’t have to lay on my back in the wet grass to frame the shot. I exposed for the pods and let the sky totally blow out. The “over-exposed” sky as background turned the scene into an interesting abstract image.

One of the best features of the Canon G11 is its articulating LCD screen. Here’s an overhead shot of our patio table I took this afternoon. With the camera held at arm’s length directly over the center of the table, the articulating screen made it easy to line up the elements. Capturing the symmetry of this frame by hand with a fixed screen DSLR would have been a crap shoot at best.

Here’s a monochrome abstract of reflections on beer brewing tanks taken Saturday evening after sampling several of said brews in the brewery’s beer sanctuary.

There’s been little visual incentive for me to stop along my commute route over the past couple of weeks so I’ve taken to abstraction for my photo kicks. This is a Hipstamaticized section of exterior wall at my workplace.

Maggie recently scored a sweet, faux fur/suede jacket off eBay. She had cleaned it today and had it hanging on the clothesline to air out. Since the sun had already passed over the horizon by the time I got home, I put the “Nifty Fifty” on my camera, set it to f/1.8, and took some shots–faux fun.
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.
Both shots: 1/50 second at f/1.8, ISO 400.
