Okay, so I took this earlier in the week, but I was busy watching football today!
Simple filter in lightroom to remove color. Accidental focus on the reflections instead of the logo, but I liked it anyway.
Saturday downtime meant the Mozilla crash reporting team had to get up early on a Saturday, roll up their sleeves and spend the day migrating our entire system to a new data center. Nice job everyone!
A simple pattern image with depth issues. Stare at it — you know you want to.
I decided to leave the house with my fisheye lens. At the train station I noticed you can get both tracks in the same shot with a 10.5mm fisheye, so here goes.
Since the sun was bright behind the station, I bracketed the exposures and then later merged them with Photomatix Pro.
This is a metal archway on the sidewalk near the Mountain View CalTrain station. The metal on blue has a nice effect, but the black and white equivalent jumped out at me due to the different contrast between grey and white. Check it out:
My feeling was that due to better contrast and less distraction from white on blue clouds, the arrows seem to jump out more. Just a feeling.
Fog and the evening sun made for a neat effect.
Shot walking around with a 50mm 1.4/f.
Simple but good. Easy St in Mountain View on a late Monday afternoon.
Shows off the 85mm effect at f/2.5. Taking only an 85mm prime to the baylands was a good decision. Focused on photos not lenses.
Their heads are purple at times but green at others. Here’s a decent photo where we see the green while afloat on the pond.
Here you can see the light hitting at a different angle, and the same ducks are showing purple.
Yes, this blew my mind too.
Garlic, soy sauce and teriyaki marinade. Cook on low for 4 hours to fill your house with the smell of yummy-ness and prepare a good meal.
