Christmas in San Diego – December 24, 2017 at 11:48AM

Just to let you know, here in San Diego, where the weather is nice all year long. … We welcome you to come and live in the greatest place on earth.

One Day Road Trip – Beach Cities from Encinitas to Mulholland Drive.

I am starting to offer “One Day Road Trip workshops.” The intent is to teach a very small single-car group of people how to use their cameras to capture their imagination in various situations. I do that by showing you how to decide what we want to shoot, and how to use their cameras to capture the needed images for a wide range of photographic targets, from a single image, to multiple image HDR panoramas.

This workshop worked the San Diego to L.A. route from the south, north. The next time, we will work from the north to the south, ending with a sunset somewhere along the coast.

The day went something like this, Drive and talk about options for the next target, and plan those shots while driving. Pull over at the target, and shoot the images we discussed, plus a few non planed shots. Then drive again, discussing the post production that those captured images will go through, and plan the next stop. … We did that all day long.

For example, this day, the first stop was in Encinitas, where we visited the art gallery of Kirk Saber. This is an Image of Kirk and Renee in the gallery. It is a multi image stitched panorama. You can click on the image to see a larger version.

We stopped, and started, all along the way. … Here we did some light painting in Venice. This is a combination of 10 long exposure images.

The gallery of my Workshop images created during this trip.

Fireworks, a set on Flickr.

I just want to remind everyone that the Fourth of July is coming up in the United States.

For my American friends, that means, Hot Dogs, Friends, Beer, and Fireworks. I am planing on having a great location for this fourth, and I am just reminding my friends that that is coming up.

One other thing, all these image can be purchased, if you wish. They can be used for advertisements, on giant billboards, if we negotiate a deal. … 🙂

The flicker gallery is all in reverse order, so you see tha last image first. … It might be kind of cool if you go to this first image , …

And, then step through the images with your left arrow key. That way you can see the Big Bay Boom Bust, just as it happened last July the Fourth!

The purchasable images are in this -> Fireworks Gallery

I have been blown away by the ease of publishing images, and sets of images from Flickr to my Weblog. It is dead simple easy! And, I like it. 🙂

So I was perusing my sets of images, and I liked this set of Macros. They run the gamut over several years, including Snakes, Flowers, Insects, Snails. … Pretty much, anything I pointed my Macro lens at.

Enjoy the set. …
