Arizona sky

I was on my way to pick up dinner the other day and the clouds were looking crazy.  I had to stop and take a photo.  iPhone 5, VSCO Cam app, 1/40, f/2.4, ISO 64

Today’s photo is Frontierland at Disneyland Paris.  I liked this bit of theming as we were walking by and liked how this picture turned out in black & white.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm, 1/80, f/3.5, ISO 100.

Today’s photo is from Paris off the Champs-Elysee.  We used a double-decker tour bus to see the sights and while waiting for the bus to pick us up we found this fountain and flowers.  It was a kind of secluded spot on the other side of the sidewalk.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCL-F1 fisheye, 1/1000, f/2.8, ISO 100

Today’s photo was taken at South Mountain here in Phoenix.  The desert here is pretty much just brown & dull green so I feel black and white works well since there’s not much color anyways.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL35mm, 1/160, f/7.1, ISO 100

Today’s photo is from the Duomo of Milan.  They allow photos for a small fee of 2 Euros, which is something I wish more places would do.  This is the main altar and I took this with the Lensbaby.  Sony NEX-5N, Lensbaby Composer, 1/15, ISO 3200

view from Piazzale Michelangelo

Today’s photo was taken at the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy.  Most of the sights of Florence are close to each other and Piazzale Michelangelo is on the other side of the Arno river giving you a great view of the sights of Florence and into Tuscany as well.  Sony NEX-5, SEL18-55 @ 55mm, 1/640, f/8.0, ISO 200, 12-shot panorama

Today’s photo is another from San Diego.  As we departed on our fishing trip I shot this HDR image from the back of the boat.  The horizon is centered which is supposed to be a no-no, but I like the contrast between the drama of the clouds and the wake from the boat on the water.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm, f/6.3
