It’s been a while since I’ve put a picture of Bunny online. This week the assignment was “Furry” in the one the groups I’m in on G+ so I got photos of all the house critters. They are all mostly difficult to photograph and get in-focus eyes because they seem to all be scared of the camera. Bunny is one of the easiest if I am in my computer room cause that is “her” room too.

Follow the Leader

Here’s a photo that I was NOT expecting to get. I was at the local, in town, boat launch and saw these geese out of the corner of my eye. I had my new 70-200mm lens on and am quite pleased at how quick it caught focus and such a nice job too.
I look forward to many great shots with the new glass including the upcoming trip up the coast.

Sad Eyes

Sad Eyes, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here is one from the past summer of a co-worker’s little dog. I’ve neglected any posts for a while since I have not been out with the camera much lately. As soon as I get the knee surgery I will be out there firing away with my Canon once again. It really sucks being incapacitated so much.

365/105 – Monkey’s Paw

365/105 – Monkey’s Paw, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Finally got my “Bokeh Master Kit” on Friday. Gone for the weekend and wanted to get a chance to try it out so I put the paw on. This is going to be fun to use at the right times and in the right place. It does a nice job turning the bokeh into the shape of the cut-out. As usual the biggest detriment to my photography is the lack of time.

Here’s one with the”biggest” glass I have. Not great but ok for a quick Friday shoot at the river in a place that I ended up at.

365/88 – Treasure Chest Bear

365/88 – Treasure Chest Bear, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Yesterday we had an off-site company meeting. It was good as always. We did a couple of team building deals and one was a treasure hunt / scavenger hunt exercise. We got to wear pirates hats and carry around a parrot on a stick. We had a list of 40 items that we were supposed to get pictures of like a fire truck, a stranger, a dog, a pink flamingo, etc. Each photo had to have at least one team member (there were 4 on each team) wearing the pirate (paper) hat and holding the parrot on a stick. We did this for an hour during a week day and downtown during this town’s rodeo week. I was a blast and the team I was on won. We found 39 of 40 items. A bear and a treasure chest were both on the list.

A shot with auto ISO that went to 6400. Kind of high.

Here we have some kind of blue colored bird. I wanted to see how a small crop looked. I used my 28 to 135mm zoom and it doesn’t look too bad for this crop.

365/73 – Lucy Again

It’s not too often that I can get a shot of Lucy. She seems to really be shy of the camera so when I get a chance I take it.
Well after a week of not being able to send directly from Flickr I tried the setup again. This time instead of an error it seemed to work. Let’s see!
Oh my, it worked! Sweet!

Today I was out with my fellow team mates working on the April Scavenger Hunt (portraits). We were on the group shot when I happened upon this here monkey hanging out. Thought he would make a good subject.
