Costa Mesa, CA – Orange County Fair – Sky Flyer

One more shot from the other nite. Unfortunately, I did not take many pics…just a few..all hand held. This was was taken walking by the Sky Flyer looking upwards. I had my 50mm f/1.4 and snapped away! I’m hoping to get back one nite before the fair closes and take a few long exposures.

Everyday Objects

This shot goes out to all those photographers that have the skills to go around the house and take shots of simple objects and make them look cool!   I had to give it a another try!  I bet if you have been in a photography school, one of the early stages is a project like this?  I just did a walk around with my Nikon 50 f/1.4 lens and grabbed some shots.   Expanding ones photography horizons is all good!   I am curious to learn more about portraits (as you see by my new home studio set up pos t below), street photography, macro and simple abstract photography.

So much to do in so little time!  LOL  I have shot my share of landscape and nature shots…so why not give other styles a try?  Of course I will continue to take my landscape shots, but I’m hoping to branch out in the next year!  Above it a photo of our window blinds with some nice bokeh.  Hope you don’t mind the shot? I’ll get back to the landscape shots tomorrow!  I have a cool one from Houston!  Enjoy!
