Better Than My Average Monday
Why can’t every Monday be like this? Had some friends from out-of-town drop in. The morning started at Blue Bottle:
Fuji X100 | 1/170 sec f/3.2 ISO400
And two blocks or so away, breakfast at The Grove:
Fuji X100 | 1/200 sec f/2 ISO800
The Hayes Valley Grove sure is comfortable, in a very Tahoe kind of way. Loved it.
Fuji X100 | 1/640 sec, f/2, ISO 200
A quick stop at the Painted Ladies, followed by the Palace of Fine Arts:
Fuji X100 | Motion Panorama
Fuji X100 | 1/240 sec, f/8, ISO 800 (Motion Panorama)
Kind of a funky Motion Pano. Gotta keep my hands more steady as I do the pan!
Coit Tower…oh man, feeling too much like a tourist at this point:
Fuji X100 | 1/350 sec, f/2.8, ISO 200
Fuji X100 | 1/500 f/2.8 ISO 400 (flash fired)
Discovered something as I forgot to remove the lens hood from my X100. The Fuji accessory hood actually blocks the flash, cutting out its effectiveness in the lower half of the frame. Sometimes the result is pretty cool. There a sort of spot like effect in certain situations if you allow the hood to block the built in flash (above).
Fuji X100 | 1/1000 sec f/2.0 ISO 200
Next stop, Ocean Beach and the ruins of the Sutro Baths. The decaying ruins lent themselves well to the black and white treatment:
Fuji X100 | 1/180 sec, f/3.2, ISO 800
Hiking with Suki in Bernal Heights. She had to be patient with the slow humans that accompanied her as she bounded up the mountain:
Fuji X100 | 1/240 f/13 ISO 200 (Motion Panorama)
Introducing our friends to pupusas for the first time:
Fuji X100 | 1/680 f/2.8 ISO 800
Fuji X100 | 1/420 sec, f/2.8, ISO 800
Suki had to wait outside…sorry Suki.
Fuji X100 | 1/450 sec, f/2.8, ISO 400
Another visit to Smitten!
Fuji X100 | 1/800 sec, f/2, ISO 200
Took her for a walk afterward. She’s pretty much completely healed from her little allergy incident. Yay!
Fuji X100 | 1/40 sec, f/2, ISO 3200
A tired dog is a happy dog. =)
