Look. A big red ball.

When an elephant herd at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai province of northern Thailand were given a big red ball, things got crazy. Watch the elephants run and play with the enrichment toy ball as they knock it around in glee. The Eleph...

Cherry Tree Snapper
I was taking pictures of the cherry trees in bloom and turned around to see this gentleman composing and shooting the tree. I loved the tension and poise of his pose as he tried to get his best cherry blossom picture. So I used the telephoto on the Fuji F550EXR to grab this shot of man shooting tree shooting man shooting tree.

More grim news for the families of victims of the South Korean Ferry sinking.
JINDO, South Korea (AP) — There are no names listed as relatives huddle around white signboards to identify bodies from a sunken ferry — just the slimmest of clues about mostly young lives now lost. Many favored hoodies and track pants. One girl painted her fingernails red and toenails black. Another had braces on her teeth.

Cherry Tree Panorama
A nine shot 180 degree vertical panorama taken under a copse of vivid Cherry tree in full blossom in Central Park, NYC. With all the snow/moisture this winter, the trees were very eager to shout out: "I'm here" in this delayed Spring.
I was standing under the beautiful cherry blossoms looking up and wondered how well a 180 deg vertical panorama would work. I don't have a super wide angle lens. Nor a 180 deg fisheye. (ponders how the Nikon 6mm fisheye monster lens would look on an adapter on my Sony NEX5 body)
So I flipped up the rear viewscreen and started taking incremental shots as I slowly panned up and over my head till I reached the images reached the ground behind me. Pretty cool looking panorama the 9 shots made. I should have made another panorama along the ground that is 'below' this pano to create a 'Little Planet' composition of the trees.

Images taken on the hill above Conservatory Waters in Central Park, NYC. 9 shots with Sony NEX5 w/18-55mm kit zoom.
I'm enjoying this kit zoom from Sony. Wish it was a little brighter at f/2.8 instead of f/3.5. Guess Sony didn't want a larger lens barrel that sticks beyond the height of the small NEX5.
