Carmel Architecture

There are a bunch of little walkways between buildings in Carmel. They are all lined with little shops and interesting things. I love to explore them. With a little bit of luck I will get to explore them more in the near future!

Carmel Lilies

Ahh September was a busy month, and I got a little behind. When that happens I like to come back and put things in these spaces for those of you who come looking. (Oh, and if you haven't found it yet, there is a link in the upper right corner to a calendar that displays thumbnails of the photos.)

This is a different view on the lilies in the photo of the day from April 22.

I usually carry a number of lenses with me, especially in a beautiful place like Carmel. And, I rarely take one shot from one angle. I have learned from taking photos with my best friend to explore as many angles as possible.

Sunsite Kite

Since Monterey lies on the North East side of the Monterey Peninsula you have to go around to the Carmel side to see the sunset over the ocean.

Of course, I did get some nice sunrises from the Monterey side :-)

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.
