“My own eyes are no more than scouts on a preliminary search, or the camera’s eye may entirely change my idea.”  Edward Weston

We’ve headed for home via the Oregon Coast, with a stop at my Son’s for New Years Eve.  

At one point during the drive along the coast, I looked down to see that I had two camera’s in my lap, ready for any photo opportunity that presented itself.  I tend to see everything as a photo op now . . . though I am becoming more and more selective in what I shoot.  A year ago, I would shoot frame after frame of the same thing.  Now I am quite a bit more discerning . . . and try to find the not so obvious beauty in the frame.  I’m not always that successful . . . but every once in awhile a really, really good shot sneaks through!  

I’m excited for where the New Year is going to take me in my Photography journey.  I’ll be starting a 52 Week Challenge that has Monthly Technique Themes.  Check out Michael The Maven’s Forum for more details if you’d like to participate as well.

“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it.  Go out and get busy.”  Dale Carnegie

I set my D7000 on timer and let it shoot away.  This was the best of the bunch, as I was heading off to the airport to pick up my sister who is flying in from Whitehorse, Yukon.  I love the timer feature on my camera(s).  It makes doing this 365 so much easier.  My only challenge is focusing.  To do a shot like this I have to guess where my focus is and hope that it turns out sharp, not blurry.  I was trying for the panning effect in the background as I was rounding a corner at the time.  And it looks like I was fairly successful with my focus this time.  I did process it a bit in LR4 and Topaz Adjust.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’  Tommy Cooper

I shot this with my iPad as I was in stop-and-go traffic crawling thru a stop-signed intersection.  I have my Panoramic Sunroof open, and am driving along with tunes on my radio.  Gorgeous day . . . baby sleeping in the back seat.  I processed it in the Popsicolor app on my iPad.
