Our little girl turned one today.  Check out here photo.
It was one year ago today that our little Havanese dog, Jamaica entered into this world. Still a puppy, she is a handful, but she is getting better each day. Today she saw her first balloon and was not quite sure what to think about it. In a day or two she will probably be running around the ...

Here is the same image after touching it with an iPhone app called Waterlogue, a very interesting watercolor app.

Even the iPhone can show shallow depth of field. I composed, then touched on the ball for focus and exposure.

A couple of weeks ago we adopted a new dog into our family. This was a hard process emotionally since we lost Alle a couple of years ago, but the time was right. Her name is Jamaica and she is a Havanese dog. She is definitely a puppy with lots of energy and a small bladder.

I was in San Francisco for a few days and spotted this doll fitting next to a fountain. Out came my iPhone and I worked at bringing out her natural beauty. :-)

Just after the summer solstice this year was another astronomical event called "the super moon."  Since the moon is a bit of an elliptical orbit around the earth, sometimes it is closer than at other times.  The closer path happened to be near a full moon.  I've read where the moon is about 10% larger looking than normal because of it being closer to the Earth.

Taking photos of the moon is a bit of a mind bender.  If you point your camera at the sky and snap the image, all the blackness of the sky will fool your camera into over exposing the image and the moon will be a solid white disc in the sky.  It requires some manual intervention to get the correct exposure.

Think about what you are photographing.  The moon is an object that is in direct sunlight about the same distance of the sun as the earth is.  That said, start by using the same exposure that you would photography any object that is in direct sunlight on the Earth.

The technical details for this particular image was iso 640, shutter 1/3200, aperture f4.  It seems kind of strange to shoot an image in the black of night at 1/3200 of a second, but the exposure is about perfect.

Image captured with my iPhone with the sun directly behind the flower. Guess that makes it a real Sunflower. :-)

Taken while mountain biking at Avimor north of Boise.
