Alien on Irving Street

I dove into digital photography in 2010 when I bought a Canon G11. At some point I made a decision to post my 1000th photo with that camera–whatever it was. When I got my Canon T2i I decided to carry on with the idea and post my 2000th shot from that camera. Then I got the 5D Mark III and… you guessed it, I committed to posting the 3000th shot. (Truthfully, I cheated on this one and am posting #3002 because #3000 and #3001 got trashed before I remembered the number thing. What the hell, close enough.)

On a hazy day in January

In my last post I mentioned that I was on a 15 day “Reboot” juice fast. Today is day 11 and I’m going strong. At this point I’m actually considering extending it to 20 days–but if I do it’ll be one day at a time once I get beyond 15. One of the “side effects” of the juice fast is that the part of my brain that is the photographer has gotten lazy. Not sure why that is but I’m rolling with it and enjoying the break. Maybe my creative self is in reboot mode too. Whatever it is, it’s all good because I’m feeling GREAT. I have, however, been fiddling with old shots for possible posts. Here’s a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge I took on a very smoggy, hazy day. The best solution for the ugly brownish sky was converting to black and white.
