Where I Stand - Day 139 #CY365

Today I stand on a shadow lying on what will soon be the public forum floor of the new Slover Memorial Library in Norfolk Virginia. The bottom half of this diptych is me looking down at a shadow on the bare concrete floor. The top half is looking up at the foliated space frame ornamental work by the Kent Bloomer Studio which is casting the shadow at my feet. Canon G15.

Relaxing @sevenvenues - Day 135 #CY365

I often take a walk around downtown at lunchtime to get away from the pressures of work and think about something else. Today I walked one block to the Scope Arena Plaza to see a lunchtime performance by the amazing Cirque Mechanics on the Gantry Bike. Nothing like being a part of a vibrant downtown. Canon G15, 1/1250 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 1600. I should have knocked down the ISO setting to at least 800 if not 400 for this pic. I wanted maximum depth of field to keep things in focus and a high shutter speed to freeze the action, unfortunately the high ISO gave me a little more "grain" in the photo than I wanted. Otherwise, I was pretty happy with this shot, I hope you enjoy it.

Activity - Day 133 #CY365

Activity - the treadmill at Fitness Together in Norfolk Virginia conveniently has a heart defibrillator located near by. Forty-five minutes of increased heart rate each day from activity, helps to keep the defibrillator away. Canon G15, 1/80 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.

Check Up - Day 132 #CY365

Today prompt - "Check Up", take care of yourself and make your next doctor's appointment. Well I already had one on the books, so I pulled up my trusty "Sentara My Chart" app to double check my appointment for next month. My Valentines Day orchids and my office helped to fill the frame. Canon G15, 1/250 sec @ f/2.2, ISO 200.

Innocence - Day 126 #CY365

My grandson Robert loves the pool table. The best part, getting the balls racked up in numerical order with the numbers all facing upward. Canon G15, 1/50 sec @ f/2.2, ISO 800.

Healthy Vision - Day 121 #CY365 @ThisIsRobThomas

May's #CY365 theme is about vision. While today's cameras are quite remarkable at capturing what we see, their "vision" is not at all equal to our own eyes. Our eyes eye can actually perceive a greater dynamic range than is ordinarily possible with a camera. If we were to consider situations where our pupil opens and closes for varying light, our eyes can see over a range of nearly 24 f-stops while 8-12 f-stops is generally all one can expect from a digital camera. This is most evident in low light photography especially when bright highlights are present, such as a stage performance.

Tonight Cindy and I went to see Rob Thomas at the Durham Performing Arts Center. It was an intimate performance with just two musicians joining Rob Thomas on stage. The overall lighting was low but there was always a spotlight on the star. Even with spot metering enabled, my camera struggled to get the low light background exposed, resulting in an sharply overexposed star. Manual exposure or severe exposure composition is the only way to capture the scene and avoid blown-out highlights. Since the camera can only capture a limited dynamic range, much of the scene is underexposed. So every picture is a trade off, while our eyes make the adjustments consistently and our brains composite the image so we see much more. And yes, the show was amazing. Canon G15, 1/80 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.

Peaceful - Day 113 #CY365

I often walk through the churchyard in Downtown Norfolk's St. Paul Episcopal Church. The oldest parts of the current building dates to 1737 but other church buildings occupied the site for years before. It is a peaceful oasis in an otherwise busy downtown, Canon G15, 1/30 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100.

Foreground - Day 87 #CY365

My Twitter handle is @CIOPhoto and I tweet my daily photos, about photography and about technology. The #tech hashtag can often be found in my tweets and on my conference table. Today's photo prompt was "foreground". With the early morning sun casting a nice hard shadow from the metal letters in the foreground, it was the perfect subject. Canon G15, 1/1250 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 200.

Where I Stand - Day 86 #CY365

Today I stand over a 20lb slam ball out of breath and sweating hard. Got another 60 seconds of slams coming up as soon I can get this picture taken. My trainer Ryane and the crew at Fitness Together Ghent and I get together four early mornings every week. Canon G15 1/13 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800.

365 - Day 78 #CY365

If you want people to look at you strangely, just hop on an elevator press the buttons for three different floors and pull out your camera and take a picture of the button panel. Works every time, guaranteed. Canon G15, 1/40 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800.

Drive - Day 67 #CY365

Night drive heading to dinner. I don't get to back seat drive much, so I took the opportunity to take some photos. Canon G15, 1/15 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.
