UPDATE: I got rid of the gallery format coz I don’t know how to make it function as it should if I code in images from an outside source. The images are displayed in a frame. That’s fine, but the dynamic gallery mode is lost. All photos taken with the Fujifilm XT2, XF 35mm F2. Continue reading “Dorado”
公園に花があります。Fuji XT2 XF35mm | Hilltop Park, Dana Point, CA.
Porque he aquí ha pasado el invierno. Ha cesado la lluvia y se ha ido. Se han mostrado las flores en la tierra. El tiempo de la canción ha venido. Continue reading “Dana”
Fine day at the beach. In all my years here in Southern Cal, this is but the first time I’ve been to this part of San Clemente (this goes without saying what a fine, world-class traveler I happen to be, by the way)! Not the most enthralling, but neither too shabby. Continue reading “Umibede”
Test shot. Trying to see how customizing some settings would look:
|Film Sim||Classic Chrome|
Nothing grand where subject is concerned. Highlights blown a bit, but passable. I’m content with the sharpness. No tweaks employed, so yeah, straight out of the camera.
I don’t usually mess with these settings but there should be some merit to them, I would think … and the polarizing filter just happened to be attached, so … this turned out to be an inaccurate test after all. Ayayay. ❧
This I got from the mail.
You Are What Hope Looks Like To A Bird.
Join Audubon Today.
The way I look at it, it’s the other way around: I see more hope looking at a bird. Haha.
I frequent a certain Walmart at a nearby city and one of the main reasons is because I get to see the kind of bird below. They happily haunt the parking spaces and are unafraid of the customers there. With their chirps and calls and warbles (I guess that’s the word), they fill the atmosphere with an indescribable pleasantness. Oh, wouldn’t it be wild to be able to understand them!
For a long time, I didn’t know its name and not only until recently, through sheer luck searching online again, did I finally learn it.
Will I join Audubon, you asked? ❧
Oh my! Probably taken sometime last year, maybe close to the end of the year before the last. I remember starting to draft a post with the photos I took that day, but I never published it. It got a little too long, you know, writing what detail I recalled. Suffice it is to say that that very afternoon was glorious, and that I strolled a little over a mile along the beach toward the pier drawn by the mist that enveloped part of the ocean and the nearby houses. The photo of the house was my favorite. The sunset? Hehe. Let’s just say I should’ve brought a tripod.
I’ve always wondered how good it would be living in this beachfront area. You get the view of the ocean, the sunset, the gulls … etc. Yet I notice that each time I come here, the blinds are closed and the windows covered in drapes. I guess there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing …etc ..etc.. ❧
Fujifilm XT2, XF 35mm F2. Photoshop. Sunset Beach.
Shot with my XT2 a year ago at Seabridge Park in Huntington Beach. Maybe I used my polarizing filter for this shot.
Anyhow, the whole point of this post is to see if I can embed photos stored elsewhere online. So far so good. ❧
how stands the seagull
one-legg’d on the parapet
and does not topple?
so perfectly still?
