I may still log on here and post a few things until I have my other website loaded. But for now head on over to www.encinitasfamilyphotos.com and take a look and leave a comment.

American Flag on Neptune...(ave.)

A little late for Memorial Day so let's say it's a pre-Fourth of July post...

I should know to always have my camera with me when taking a walk but sometimes the timing is wrong. High noon light is harsh but I guess I can still shoot in the shadows?? Yes...

Anyway, enjoy this door and our American Flag. Happy Fourth of July...early!

So it rained last night...quarter of an inch...

Didn't see this coming last night...

Not sure if I like the b/w or color better...or neither?

Weather in San Diego County can sneek up on us at times. Guess it wasn't supposed to rain as much as it did over night. Not that 1/4 inch of rain is a lot but it's not the norm. The "FLOODED" signs were up on certain streets.

Shooting Info: f4.5, 1/1000, ISO 200, white balance "cloudy", RAW

It's beginning to look a lot like Autumn, in San Diego...

Autumn Leaf in San Diego

Today it was cool and breezy, an unusual day in early October in San Diego. It actually rained for a few minutes too!   I had to wear my North Face fleece with my shorts and sandals today, it was that cold! This leaf blew into my yard so I thought I would get my camera and take the photo. BRRRRR!!

1/500, f/6.3, ISO 200, focal length 33 mm and exposure comp -2/3 and I shoot RAW.
