Downtown on a Monday afternoon

Instead of heading directly home after getting off the freeway at the end of my commute, I headed into town. The local parking garage seemed like a good place to grab a few quick shots so I drove up to the top level, parked and circumnavigated the lot. This view is looking east down Western Avenue towards the Petaluma River.

A gang of angles

It’s approaching the one year mark for my blog and my T2i. I’m not obsessed with anniversaries, but, for fun, I thought I’d post a shot taken today of another angle on the G11 images I showed in my very first post back in August 2010.

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 26mm. 1/160 second at F/11, ISO 200.
(Why so many f/11 shots? Because most of my commute shots are taken during the afternoon when the sun is high and bright–and, as every photographer worth their salt should know, f/11 is much sweeter than f/16 after 3:00 PM. ;^)
