Fun with Photos

SUMMARY: Some photography at the end of the day in Monterey.

We had a ton of great lectures today and saw many, many inspirational photos. So, after the day was done, I raced down to Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row areas to snap some sunset/twilight/night shots. THis laptop takes far too long to load and process images, so I ican't really do much with them tonight, but here are some highlights, after lectures on looking for lighting, looking for shapes and patterns, looking for opportunities, composition, shooting at sunset and twilight, and so much more

What about the obligatory canine photos that makes this appropriate fare for Taj MuttHall? I saw quite a few dogs out for their evening constitutionals, but it was too dark to catch them on film. Except for these terriers, who hung around while their human mom examined a candy store. They were every which way, everywhere, and wouldn't hold still for the fraction of a second it took to click the shutter. But I kinda like the way this one turned out.

Tomorrow I'm going to be shooting a tanker-load of photos on top of the 100 I snuck in in an hour this evening. Maybe someday I'll finish processing my Montreal photos so I can then go through my Monterey photos and then perhaps move on to some other Mont--Montserrat, perhaps?


  1. sounds like a really fun and inspirational weekend. can' wait to see more photos! (i'm typing this with one hand because katie the almost 2 year old sheltie is insisting i use one hand to hold her chew toy for her. sheese!)

  2. Yeah, sheeze! How come you're not using BOTH hands?!
