I finally got to play around with my 3-day-old Sony NEX-5R today. So far so good. I’m loving the size, responsiveness & IQ. Plenty more fun to be had with this baby, that’s for sure, especially when the 10-18mm lens I have on order arrives. This is Shadow, a 9-week-old German Shepard who reluctantly served as a model for me today.
Baseball has been a big part of my life for many years now. I fell in love with the game as a spectator in Yankee Stadium back in 1998, and even tried my hand at playing it, only to realise that 1) it’s a lot harder than it looks, & 2) the only part of playing baseball I was good at was letting my teammates down.
I‘ve added a downloads section to the blog with, for now, a selection of 10 of my travel images formatted to fit a facebook timeline cover/banner.
The Weather Channel are organising a 24-hour Google+ event on September 19th called Sunset Day. The idea is pretty simple – over a 24-hour period members of the G+ community are asked to capture & submit a sunset picture to the event page on G+. I saw that and immediately got to thinking of my favourite sunset pictures as captured on my travels over the years. After a little digging here’s what I came up with, 10 pictures of sunsets captured around the globe.
It’s not like I ever did flood my blog with material but these days in particular I have been holding off updating it given the fact that a much needed overhaul of what you see here right now is just around the corner. But I’ve recently returned from a 10-night trip to Portugal, during which I did a spot of night time photography in the country’s capital, Lisbon. He are a few of the images I captured.
The summer wedding season is coming to an end; three down with one more to go (I’m off to Portugal in a few days for that one). I’ve rarely taken a camera out at any of the three weddings I’ve been to over the past few weeks, happy to enjoy them as a guest. That said I have taken a few, including this one yesterday of Pat & Audrey during the cake cutting at their lovely post-wedding garden party. It was a rushed affair (the picture, not the party) taken with my point-and-shoot.
