Nancy came back from Norway early Friday morning. Check out how excited Oshie was to see her.
The commercials for Subaru vehicles has been focused around dogs for a little while now and I think they are doing a damn good job. They are funny, relate-able and have meaning. I saw this one courtesy of my wife and it is awesome.
The weather was awesome this past weekend so I decided to go to Wilmington North Carolina to walk around and snap some photos. It is about an hour away from where we live and it is very photogenic, has plenty of excellent places to eat and to top if off they were having a St. Paddy’s festival.
Well it turned out that the festival was rather small and that I am not that great at street photography. I guess that means I just have en excuse to practice more. So the trip was kind of a bust. I did get some delicious ice cream from a place called Kilwins. Some of the best ice cream ever. I was introduced to it while living in Maryland and am glad they have one in Wilmington. I also had a delicious steak at The George which is a nice restaurant right on the river that is dog friendly (just so you know). However dinner made me miss Nancy because I was eating alone which I have not done at a real restaurant in a long long time. The view and weather and a pint of Guinness however, aided in lifting my spirits.
I do have one photo that I decided might be worth sharing. It is of the Cape Fear River Bridge. I used the in camera HDR function that the 7d mkii has because I was curious and am still learning all the features it has compared to my old SLR. Generally I am not a big fan of HDR but after some quick editing and changing to black and white I thought it wasn’t too bad. Let me know what you think and as always thanks for stopping by.
Oh and next time I will take Oshie and do a little Golden Wilmington Portrait session ha-ha.
If you are anything like me and you expected all of your fancy technology to make the daylight saving time change for you then you likely forgot all about your camera.
Some may not care about what date and time their camera is set to, but if you take a lot of photos like I do then having the correct date and time can come in very handy. Don’t forget to make the change!
So I decided to enter my Pelican Portrait photo into the Popular Photography Magazine month of March best shot contest. I made some changes to it in Adobe Lightroom earlier today to bring out some more features.
I would be grateful of anyone who clicks the link and leaves me a vote! The edited image is posted there and is also the image for this post. Thanks!
As always thanks for stopping by.
Occasionally I go to the Marina on base during lunch to practice my photography skills and enjoy being out of the office. There is usually an interesting assortment of birds as well as Marines flying overhead in all types of whirlybirds.
Here are some shots I was able to capture today. The weather is just to beautiful but it was a bit bright and there was a lot of smoke clouding the sky due to ordnance being destroyed.
