365/72 – Silhouette and remembrances

March 20th, 2010 by ronlute

Having a little trouble this week keeping up with the daily photo. It doesn’t help that my blog from Flickr is broken and I can’t seem to find a solution. Today was a sad and happy day. Sad because of saying goodbye to a young lady that was taken from this place way too soon. Happy because the her’s was a life that was so special and she touched so many as was evidenced by the 2 hours our remembrances at her celebration. There were many stories told and there was much laughter and many tears shed today.

365/6 – Golden Sunset

Another sunset and so soon. It is easier sometimes when it is a busy day and the days are still rather short. Since my office window faces the West I do get tempted some nights when the colors are cool. It is always a bit of a challenge too to try to get a sharp photo hand held. I tried to do most of these with my lens up against the window to minimise shake. Not too bad I guess.

365/2 – New Year’s Goodnight

You just never know what you might find close by. This afternoon I went on a photo walk with a friend in the downtown area and we were in the right place for a change when there was a decent sunset. This is a bit over processed but I am trying out a trial of Topaz adjust. It is a nice little Photoshop plugin.

Fort Bragg in August. It is a nice place to be especially when you spend most of your summer in Redding, CA. Redding just gets too down right hot at times and you need a break. We’ve found a nice break to take is the Art in the Gardens at the Mendocino Coastal Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg. This was our second year attending. Last year worked out better and hopefully next year will turn around.
They stuck us in a second row and there was not a well defined walk-way between us the others in front of us. Next year we WILL have a different set-up.
We we able to rent a house for 5 nights this year and only eat out once. Silver’s by the Bay or something like that. The place is in Noyo Harbor and is a decent place to eat.
Took this shot at sundown obviously. Everyone with cameras were getting out of their seats to take snaps by the windows. We had a window table and I took this photo with the P&S. Thought it turned out well considering.
