Today I participated in what was billed as the world’s largest-ever photo walk, organized in celebration of the Google+ one-year anniversary. At last count, there were 106 cities participating. It was a great time, hunting photo opportunities in the 100-degree heat. More photos from today to be shared on Google+ in the coming days!

C’mon, sing it with me! “Sometimes you feel like a nut…”
Insomnia provides additional time for photography. :-)
A friend of mine needed headshots. Thankfully we got a couple where she didn’t blink. :-)
Haven’t used this in many years.
I seem to recall movies from, say, the 1950’s where people would peak through a neighbor’s keyhole to see what they were doing. It doesn’t work nowadays. (Of course, now you can just log in to facebook and see more than you ever wanted to see.)
Tried out exposure bracketing with the new camera, plugging the result into Photoshop’s HDR tool. Followed by many tweaks. Ending in a result I didn’t care for. But yeah, sometimes that happens. :-) I really don’t have the whole HDR thing down, even though I like to fiddle with it from time to time. (The …
Trying to escape (A) the harsh afternoon sun, and (B) photographers.

Another milestone with only sixty-five entries to go!
Upon the shelf should they be needed again.

One thing I need to work on is patience. Especially when it comes to wildlife photography. I lucked out with today’s “see it out the window and sprint to the backdoor” approach.
Of course, when I turned it over, all of my eggs fell to the floor. Now I have none. Should have listened to my father all those years ago.
Visited my local camera dealer today. They didn’t have the lens I wanted, but they did have cool things in the showcase.
No real story behind this one. :-)
Hanging out in the dining room.
I have been eagerly awaiting this arrival, and it’s finally here! Busy day, though, and I haven’t even had time to take it out of the box. Looking forward to putting it to use. Word has it this camera is about 8.89 times nicer than my D90!
In front of my old high school. They are hosting an event this evening for alumni to visit before the old building is torn down. A new building has already been constructed and stands ready for the coming school year.
I never did put these to good use. They arrived in the mail the day after this year’s annular eclipse. And I guess the Venus event yesterday didn’t interest me enough to pay attention. At least I’m prepared for 2017!

One of the more important food groups. :-)
Having some fun today, but couldn’t get the post-processing to match the vision in my head. :-)
From a weekend car show in Albuquerque.
I don’t consider myself to be a hoarder, but I occasionally keep random things that might better be thrown away. Such is the case with these “packing feet” from a washing machine I purchased several years ago. It’s a good thing I held on to them, as I obviously needed a photography subject this morning. …
