20180913: Natural Frames Pt 2a, how to find & use natural frames.

In this framing you can see the different style of clouds

20180907 street & Plaza-4557FB

and again the eye motion of the triangle moves the viewer to the bottom from the top & the clouds in this sample are more intense so the eye lingers longer on the clouds & lesson the distant church.

However, the eye is still driven by the triangle shape to move up or down & just for the texture of the walls doing the framing I did squat down lower to get more of them. The top framing piece now comes into play as well.

20180826: New tiny rose bush for a tiny patio, Depth of Field lesson.

Yes, as the direct sunlight is leaving my patio, I got another small rose to replace the loss of the others.

201800825 street & night river-4494FB

Rather nice that the day after transplanting it, all but one of these opened up.

Wide angle lens, close up and medium f/stop gives me the depth of field on the roses, but blurs the background plants & objects. You can see that this causes separation of the foreground & background making the roses more pronounced.

My photography, my typography & design skills and a little bit of my creative writing skills.

Plus some times a bit of “dry humor”.

100s of photographs, mostly nature but also various places around the world.

Yes, I have a different perspective on life, don’t you?

I am also running a one man revolution to save some life from this planet as humans kill everything off.   #OccupyISS_IntSpaceStationwhen survival counts

I created the ISS in 1983, with a letter to Pres Reagan to steal from me. The USA did and now I need my Space Station to use to save some of the animals & plants & other life from this pollution doomed planet.

Wars cost money, so yes these sales help me do my thing.

20180325: ISS PHASE 2, Spirit Drumming, The Tectonic Plate Dance.

I did a much better mix of the drumming sounds here.

With 3 mics running, I had to just kind of play with the levels, and while not the best, YES, you do get to hear MORE of the tones I play while playing with one hand.

Quite Fun for me.

20171120: Canon 16-35mm Repaired & working again! Wow, am I happy

OK, so after 3 years of hauling my broken Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” II zoom lens around with me, not having the money to send it in to be repaired. I finally got inside it and found the broken wire causing the problem.

20171119 Canon Repair 16-35mm

This what I talk about in being intelligent.

It took 3 yrs of trying to find the way inside without BREAKING ANYTHING & I was patience enough to do so.

I then without a schematic looker for where a wire should have been attached.

As you can see, it was not so obvious a place.

20171119 on the operating table 16-35mm

The first attempt to connect an extra wire to this spot did not work, the wire pictured would not solder down. So I replace it with a copper wire which did work & that little tiny extra inch of wire let me reconnect the wire inside the lens body to the circuit board.

After closing it up, I tested it and everything fired just right. 3:30am time for bed.

Next day I took it out to the street while selling & tested it more. Everything seems fine. Later that night I went and did some night shooting & so far everything is well & GOOD.

Since this is the lens that in 2014, I had a tripod fall over on a mountainside and break this lens literally in half, I assume either the solder job at the Factory Repair was bad or the wire was weaken but that fall & rolling down 100ft of mountain.

I have over $2000 invested in the lens both from buying it & then the repair of that breaking it in half. So it is nice to repair it myself & have it back in the photo kit!

Sorry I did not take more photos of the lens being opened & repaired, wee morning hours are great for working, but I don’t always remember to shoot a lot of “extra photos” on these repair jobs. I am more interested in getting the job done & get to sleep!

The Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” is one of the sweetest landscape lens I have ever used.

The drain system is very poor and whoops, the rain got very heavy.

At the door step! (the white object is a splash guard so I can have the door open)
