Last night Mags and I hoofed it downtown to see a movie (the Coen brothers “True Grit”–great flick!). I brought my G11 just for some added fun. After the movie we stopped in at the local watering hole and had a pint then walked around town with me click click clicking before hoofing it back to the homestead.
This is the corner of Western and Kentucky on a sleepy Thursday night:
And this one is on the riverfront:
Canon G11 in hand just for fun.
Back in July I took some photos of the waterfront area in Petaluma. This is a late afternoon shot of the west side span of the historic “D” Street drawbridge (the bridge was completed in 1883):

After a decade hiatus from cameras I’ve begun to rekindle my interest in photography–this time digital. To get started I needed a camera (obviously), so this past April I bought myself a Canon G11. The G11 is a great little camera. To be able to use filters (mainly a circular polarizer) I added Lensmate’s “A” and “B” adapters.
As an exercise I decided to post a daily “commute photo” on my Facebook page. Because I have a long work commute the idea was “run and gun”–15 minutes max out of the traffic flow to get a shot. It’s made my commute longer, but much more interesting.
I’m a few months into the daily FB posts so my plan is to weave the old in with the new. This is the beginning.
One of my first commute shots was of the bridge over the Petaluma river:
A couple of weeks later I noticed that the bridge had been tagged so I stopped for a shot. This is fully zoomed in:
And here’s the perspective shot, fully zoomed out:
The bridge is very photogenic. 😉
Canon G11, Kenko Pro 1 low profile circular polarizer, and plenty of gas.
