I couldn’t resist the colors in this, at first walking past and then backtracking to get this shot. It’s hard to resist a good backlit leaf.
I talked before about visualizing images, sometimes unintentionally, in black and white. Wednesday’s photowalk was one of those times. Though, I didn’t turn on the (Fujifilm Acros) film siumulation. Rather, I photographed in RAW format because I wasn’t sure that I wanted black and white photos. There were spots of color around, including a greatContinue reading “A B&W Photowalk”
I spent yesterday morning on a solo photowalk. I opted for the Cosumnes River Preserve because I wanted to check out how the landscape has changed since the last time (season) I visited. It felt good to be out, and even better to be taking my time with the camera. I couldn’t help but spendContinue reading “Seeing in B&W”
I have been experimenting with the Acros film simulation on my Fujifilm X-T30 and I have some ideas for some projects that I want to do with it. It reminds me so much of the black and white film I used (extensively) in high school, while first learning photography.
I was so self-conscious while taking this picture. It caught me off guard; I never used to hesitate when it comes to taking pictures of food. I took a break from doing so for a while and am starting to work back into it, taking a slightly more intentional approach to food photography. I rememberContinue reading “Panko crusted onion rings”
Erin Sullivan‘s TED Talk resonated with me.
I liked the muted color in this, on this overcast day. This was taken with the Vivid film simulation, using the Fujifilm X-T30.
Yesterday, I ventured out to take a few photos, not really planning where I would go. I decided to check out the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area for my first time. It’s just a few miles from home and I think about visiting it every time I drive by it. I loved it but instantly regrettedContinue reading “Great egret watching”
I’m increasingly appreciating the calm and peace that comes from getting up earlier in the morning. This was taken just after a very early conference call. Though I usually wake up with a foggy head, I clearly visualized this image before taking my camera outside to capture it.
Last weekend, I wandered the Effie Yeaw Nature Center for a few hours, hiking a little over 2.5 miles, testing out my newly acquired XF 16-80mm f/4 lens. First, it felt great to get out into nature after a long, busy week. It was my first full week back at work and school and, well,Continue reading “Branches like neurons”
I made Helen Rosner’s “Roberto” (recipe here). I added zucchini to this batch to give it some added veggie/texture. It was so good.
There are two rose bushes, one on each side of our front walkway, leading to our front door. They flourish, much more than they should because, each week the HOA’s landscapers butcher them, hacking them down to an “acceptable” size (as deemed by the HOA). It’s unfortunate that this week, only one remaining rose remainedContinue reading “Lone Survivor”
