Running on Neptune (Ave)

Today was my second day of running after an eight month layoff  otherwise known as 'being lazy'. I was still walking along Neptune, just not running behind my BOB stroller as I had been over the last two and a half years. As I came to a stop and started my cool down back to the house a couple were walking my way. I didn't know their names just their faces as we casually said "Hello" over the years.

It was a Stone Steps morning

Today was a good day to practice photographing in the TV mode of my Canon. I set the shutter speed to 1/1000 and ISO 100 and let the camera decide the F/stop. Oh, and I also set the focus to AI Servo. This was the first time I have used the TV setting as I usually shoot Manual. I love the sharpness and knowledge that I would get sharper photos with a moving subject. Enjoy.

I wanted to work on my skills with photographing in TV mode with the Canon. I set the shutter speed to 1000 and ISO to 100. I let the camera do the rest with regards to Fstop. This works great for photographing young children since they love to run and are never steady.









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.

Wavecrest Woodie Meet 2010



Wavecrest Woodie Meet is the largest of its kind in the country. Held each September at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA. It draws up to 300 wooden-bodied cars for a weekend of car and surf-related activities. This year marks the 31st anniversary of Wavecrest!

I didn't want to just take photos of cars so I went for creativity. I hope you enjoyed my trip to the Woodie show. These are beautiful cars to photograph with a lot of history to tell.
