Take a bow

I’m currently going through a major transition (all good!), so I’m wrapping stuff up and preparing to change coordinates. Also, I’ve got this brand new, monster of a camera but I’m ridiculously busy–aargh!… Lots of 5DM3 “Out and About” photos will be coming soon. In the meantime, another close-up of flora at the homestead from this past weekend.

Garden fish

Early this afternoon, I spotted this very rare garden fish just outside our bedroom’s sliding glass door. Fortunately, I had my T2i with the Nifty Fifty mounted and ready as there was precious little time to get a good shot before it swam off. Guess I got lucky.

Post Holiday chilling

It’s an overcast, chilly day here in the northern San Francisco Bay Area and I’m hanging out at the homestead. For photo fun, I took advantage of the subdued afternoon light and grabbed this close-up of one of our wintered bean poles.
