In Search of Poppies

Image
My wife and I went to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve to photograph poppies, when we arrived there we found out that the poppies hadn't bloomed yet, that it would be 2 to 3 more weeks before full bloom. Luckily, we met some Korean Ladies that had just come from the Lake Elsinore area where they said the poppies were in bloom. We drove down to LA and rested over night and the next day went to Lake Elsinore, it was pouring rain but we still managed to get some decent images.

2012 Trip To Turkey

Image
In May of 2012 I traveled to Turkey with a tour group. To this day I've yet to process the 2000 or so images I shot there. I think my procrastination is the result of not knowing how to use Photoshop. Here are a few of the photos from that trip.

San Francisco Streets

San Francisco is a great place to shoot street photography. There are unique neighborhoods like, Little Italy, Chinatown, The Castro, The Financial District, etc., also the tourist areas like Market Street, Pier 39, Koit Tower, Lombard Street provide a never ending variety of photographic opportunities.   

Go Wide or Go Home

Some time ago I bought a Tokina AT-X 17-35 Pro FX Lens thinking I would use it mostly for landscape photography, but in January of last year (2018) I decided to take it to the city for a bit of street photography. I found that a super wide lens can really add another dimension to shooting the streets.
