Just Passing Through

I took this the other night while at a fireworks show. It's actually a car driving by, through the holes in a concrete wall. (300D, Aperture-Priority, 13", f.11, Metering: Evaluative, ISO 800, Lens 18.0 - 55.0mm, Focal Length 47.0mm)


Stumped, part 1

This is the first picture I had the chance to run through PhotoShop. I've been waiting to change it to black and white for a couple of days (I'm a bit slow with loading programs). I'm sure I'll revisit this locaiton frequently.

On a side note, any criticisms and/or comments are welcome. The more feedback I get, the more I can improve.



I have mixed feelings about this one. I like the colors, but not the focus. I have no idea what it is; it was just laying in a rice paddie I drive by. (Canon 300D, Portrait, 1/800, f5.0, ISO 100, Lens 18.0 - 55.0 mm, 40.0 mm)


Pining for Macro...

... but still I have no complaints. (AETv, 1/400Av, f5.6, ISO 200, Lens 18.0 - 55.0 mm, Focal Length 46.0, RAW)

Taiko drums. Taken at a festival in Mikkabi, the small town in rural Japan where I work. This was my first real chance to play with my new camera. (Canon 300D 1/25, 7.1 1600 ISO)

Here's the first picture. I took this while in Bangkok this past Christmas. He's a monk's bowl craftsman. Taken with a PowerShot A95.

Getting Started

Well, this blog thing seems to be the latest rage, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon. My goal is to post a photo everyday (unless I'm travelling), so check in often.
