Day 149 – Discoveries

I “discovered” these awesome hashbrowns. OK by discovered I mean, they were using them at girls camp. They are pretty incredible. Great tasting, easy to make, and super easy to store.

Day 145 – One After Another

I have been playing with this concept for a while. I wanted both the motion from a “long shutter speed, and the sharpness from a frozen moment in time. This was done using both of my lights the spider light allowed for the movement and the flash froze the movement.

200mm f/22 1/10s

This is another shot that I will have to revisit, but I need to figure out what it is missing (more actually what is there that I need to remove).

Day 125 – Meaningful

Gifts are hard, especially when you are a kid. That being said I got the best present ever from my daughter for fathers day. I hope she doesn’t mind me posting it here. She hid it under my pillow so that I would find it and be suprise. The thoughtfulness and effort really made this gift truly meaningful.

50mm f/11 1/80s
As a two-fer here is a picture that she took with my setup. Tripod with the camera pointed straight down using my collapsible silver (the gold color is actually the incandescent lights reflecting WB was set to Daylight) reflector as a background with light coming from the windows in the front room.

Day 120 – I Won’t Get Fooled Again

This is a blatant rip-off of a picture for CSI Miami. I really liked the original though. So I thought I would try my own spin. I figured why not, CSI Miami is just a rip-off of CSI right.


200mm f/11 1/125s flash fired

This is a rare event. This picture is exactly how I wanted it to turn out.

Day 119 – Sharpen, Sharpen, Grind

This was the last thing I needed to do to get my lawnmower back in service. It’s always fun to use the angle grinder. The picture did not come out as clean as I would have liked, and I am still trying to figure out what to do differently.


200mm f/5.6 1/15 ISO 800

It was a hard shot to run since I was trying to trip the shutter and handle an angle grinder at the same time. Thank heavens for cable release, delayed mirror lock-up and tripods.

Day 111 – Life By Chocolate

Death by chocolate makes no sense to me, who wants that? Then again, desert is not my favorite part of the meal. However, if you put out cookies from My Dough Girl I will change my tune. No lie, this lady makes the greatest cookies on the face of the planet. You might of heard of her from her recent troubles with a dough boy corporate bully. As a result of this there will be a name change in the future, but as long as she makes cookies like the Margo and the Vivian (pictured below) I will be going into this cookie nirvana for a long time to come.

Day 105 – Southwest Egg Rolls

This is my most requested dish.

I love the layout but I was in a hurry and did not use a tripod so the focus is a little soft.

After dinner some of us went to the Great Salt Lake Marina. The weather did not play nice and I was not happy about but I thought that I would try something new.

Day 102 – Heavenly Body

I had to go into work at 4:00am and the moon was amazing. I had to stop and get a couple of shots.

This is a pretty tight crop on the far end of my 55-200, wish I had a 500 😉

Day 89 – Siding

Siding and doors went onto the shed today.

I was trying to get a sunset shot with the front of the shed being lit be a flash. To bad for me the sunset was pretty weak.
