Walking in Carmel
I thought about taking a photo like this before I found the specific
subject. My fish-eye lens is an interesting tool, but you have to
think a little more about the composition when using it.
Since it is so wide compared to a "normal" lens or your normal
point of view, it makes everything look further away.
My idea was to put flowers in the foreground with a larger subject behind them. Since the lens can make a larger subject less interesting by including too much. You have nothing to focus on then. The lens was less than an inch from the flower at the bottom of the photo.

Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunset
The Spanish Style of the Santa Barbara Courthouse makes a beautiful subject at any time. But in the evening the lighting makes it spectacular.

State and Anapamu
A little rain and lights at night make for some nice pictures. This is a great spot on State Street in Santa Barbara. I was right in front of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Diagonally across the street is a great restaurant called the State & 'A'.

Another night picture in La Arcada Court. That is not the sun at the top of the picture, it's a light on the bottom of a foot bridge between the buildings.

Tonight I am working on my church's website.
We recently had the grounds landscaped and
have made some other improvements which made
a good opportunity for some photos.
If all goes well you should be able to see the finial results in a few hours at www.GraceLutheran.net

Last Thursday looked like it was going to end
with a beautiful sunset. So, I went to the courthouse to get some shots
of the city from the tower (it is one of the
tallest buildings in Santa Barbara, since there is a limit
of about three stories these days).
However, after realizing I had loaded the film incorrectly in my camera loosing all of the shots from the tower (no great loss, the clouds were too heavy at the horizon to make a very good show). I wandered around the grounds as the light was fading and got the best pictures of the day.

We have been having some amazing weather in Southern California this season. (I know, we're not alone!) But it makes for some beautiful sunsets. This is another of my experimentations with my new fish eye lens from eBay!

State Street Christmas
Just before Christmas I took a walk down State street with my new toy, a fish eye lens (courtesy of eBay). For several years I have wanted to take some shots of the Christmas decorations on State street, this is one of my first.
