Day 334 – 50mm Maya
A very shallow depth of field photo of Maya tonight (shot under lamplight at f/1.8, 1/250s, ISO 1600). It was a very busy day at work, and this evening we had a late dinner out with family. I came home to do some laundry and pack for my trip to L.A. tomorrow afternoon so I can spend a few days with my dad, who is recovering from another surgery. I’m waiting for the load to finish drying and then I’ll be stumbling off to bed.
Day 333 – It rained today!
Day 332 – Antique Opera Glasses
Brad’s Grandfather owned these and we inherited them after his passing. They are in remarkably good shape, though I think I’d like to get them professionally cleaned. We also have another pair of Lemaire Fabt opera glasses, though not with mother of pearl as these are.
I also added a vintage filter to the first shot. It seemed fitting.
Day 331 – Dreamy Duck
Day 330 – Bowers Mansion
I took Nina and Buddy on an outing today. One of our stops was Bowers Mansion Park. Here are a few photos from that stop.
On the playground, these swings caught my eye. I liked the repeating shapes, so I processed the photo in black and white to bring them out.
At the front steps of the mansion.
There is a very large fallen tree on the property. This is just a portion of the exposed roots.
