20171129 Editing night shots of San Juan

While the view is limited, an artist is always looking for a new angle.

Dia de Muertos night event, the fountain is on, shutter slowed down a little to let the motion show & then the Independence Tower lights to contrast nicely.

20171121: Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” repair test shots. Looking Good!

So this past weekend was some part of Mexican Independence Celebration, the locals that speak English could not explain it fully to me.

But with the 16-35mm back in action, it was time to go play in the night with it.

Nothing better than a reflection in the night when you don’t have stars to shoot!

My Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 just is not able to pull this off, standing a little further back and the wall containing the fountain hides the reflection of the crosses.

Most the time this fountain is either on or dry… so I shot both sides.

Well, with a few shots with the “fixed” Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” II … I think it is going to be just FINE!

20171015: Fiesta San Juan Poster… #1

OK, so I worked into the wee hours, got some sleep and was back at it a couple hours later.

Fiesta San Juan de los Lagos, Jal MX.

Just the few of the photos, But the fast eye of the newspaper Photo editor in use here, & a little skill on the computer.

1pm local time Sunday, I was sell this poster on the streets… (meta data on the last frame shot was 10:05pm Saturday. Not too bad for a one man operation.)

With 1100 frames to review slower, I am sure I will use other photographs & maybe do another poster.
