365 Project – 101 : Yes, he IS drinking from a toilet! (April 10, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/60, Aperture: F/2.8 ISO: 640

This exhibit at the Exploratorium in San Francisco was a hoot! 🙂  The sign says “The Sip of Conflict.  Why do some people enjoy this experience while others shudder in disgust?”  Of course this is clean, drinking water but, it’s interesting how you assume it’s gross just because it’s piped through a toilet.  It was funwatching people’s reactions!

365 Project – 100 : Golden Gate Bridge (April 9, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/80, Aperture: F/16 ISO: 100

We’re back home from our San Francisco Bay Area vacay and I brought back quite a few pics for my 365 Project.  I shared some golden gate pics in a previous post but, this is one of my favs taken from the lookout on the SF side,  straight out of the camera.  This is one seriously photogenic bridge! 🙂

Golden Gate Bridge from Lincoln Park

I took a lot of photos of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marina District and the viewpoint near the bridge but, I also liked this view from a bit further away from Lincoln Park.  I even prefer the trees framing the bridge’s towers as opposed to a totally unobstructed view.  What do you think?  San Francisco is for sure a fantastic vacation spot and is a feast for photographers!

365 Project – 93 : Rolling green hills of Dublin (April 2, 2012)

ORIGINAL: Shutter Speed: 1/500, Aperture: F/14, ISO: 400

Post-processed using Lightroom 3 Preset "General - Punch"


It only looks like Ireland but, these hills are in Dublin, California.  My straight out of camera photo didn’t capture the vibrant green hills and blue skies  so I decided to include a before and after shot .   The modification was a super simple Lightroom 3 Preset called “General – Punch.”  That’s it. You can see there’s not a huge difference between the two photos but, enough to make the second photo pop a bit more.  And, I honestly don’t know if this really is a good photo.  I think I’m so emotionally attached to this place  that I may just love this photo for the memories it brings back.  I also think I was just so happy to take a photo with blue sky after leaving the rain and gray back home.  So, I’ll let you tell me if this photo does anything for you.  Thanks for taking a look and stopping by! 🙂
