A Shiba’s Life

Life is pretty good for this Shiba Inu. The day begins on whatever soft surface she decides to sleep on through the night. “Please don’t bug me with that camera.” Next is usually some dog-centric outing, like a run along the beach: In return, she has to tolerate her photo-geek dad chasing her around with […]

Return of the Suki

Fuji X100: Crazy Dynamic Range

Fuji X100 – 23mm, 1/600 sec, f/11, ISO 200 One of the things that frustrates me most about compact cameras is that their dynamic range is so limited compared to DSLRs. Not so with the Fuji X100.

A San Francisco Sunset

Nikon D700 + Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 VRII at 16mm f/8, 1/20 second ISO800 For some reason, really breathtaking sunsets are not very common here in San Francisco. The last two sunsets in a row here, however, have been stunning. I took the image above and below this evening with Suki at my side. The plan […]

Suki and the Trolly

Watch out Suki! Well, she’s actually not in any real danger here. This particular spot where we took Suki’s latest image for my photo project, combined with a real long focal length, gives the impression that Suki is in danger from on-coming traffic. In reality, she’s quite safe, comfortably surveying the scene from a sidewalk. […]
