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.
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.
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.
A view of the mansion from the playground. Out of the frame to the left is a covered picnic area and horseshoe pit.
