To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

And do check out my How-To and Birding pages as well.

Day 233 - Relearning the Alphabet: The Letter "H"

"H" for Horizon

I am yet to catch up with my blog posts.  I took about a couple thousand pictures while I was away, and I'm now faced with the insurmountable task of sorting through and discarding or processing the keepers.

The following shots were taken with my point and shoot camera on the way to San Francisco.

I wasn't able to manipulate the ISO or the white balance in the first shot and didn't have much luck in post processing either.  I have no clue which city this was.

An enlightened fellow traveller let me know that it was Denver we were flying over, and since he was a pilot enroute to SF to start his shift, I will have to assume he knew his cities.  These shots of Denver were taken while holding the camera up against the window to cut out the reflections, and therefore a bit of camera shake crept into them.
