Today challenge was "Step Outside" and the first day of month is always a self portrait. So here's my selfie taken in the front yard with my neighbor's bare pecan trees in the background. I captured the late afternoon sun which appeared briefly on an otherwise cloudy and gray day. Used the camera's popup flash to add just a little fill light with the flash compensation set at -2 stops. The camera's self timer was used, manual focus using the distance gauge on the lens, and of course, the camera was tripod mounted. Canon 7D, 1/250 sec @ f/8, ISO 200, 35mm prime lens.
The top of the Wells Fargo Center in Norfolk Virginia with it's holiday lights on. The Wells Fargo Center is a 22 story office, commercial and residential complex completed in 2010. Canon G15, 1 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100.
These glass balls reminded me of the marbles I played with when I was a kid. The display of the glass balls suspended on strings was never intended to be viewed from the bottom up. Located outside of Christopher's at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, N.J. Canon G10, 11 mm equivalent focal length, 1/5 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100, camera triggered with the self timer.
