Going out and taking more photos!

I’ve blogged about how I tend to read more about photography than actually going out and taking pictures. Luckily, I have co-workers that are into photography and are really good. So now I’ve been taking pics around La Jolla Shores. Just hanging out and actually taking my time with shots have helped me alot. And my buddy doesn’t mind sharing tips.

Here is his website: LEE SIE PHOTOGRAPHY

After 2 excursions, I’ve felt as if I learned alot ::

Miramar Lake and the Sigma 10-20mm lens.

I have a folding bike, which is pictured in a previous post.  I used to ride around Miramar Lake quite a bit, I haven’t done that in a while.  But when I did ride, I would sometimes bring my camera.  I figured if I wanted to improve my photography I should be ready for any opportunity where ever I was.  I bought a sigma 10-20mm which is primarily used for landscape photography and here are a couple of opportunities that I didn’t let pass me by.

Favorite Subject Matter

What do I like?  Sneakers!  Maybe not as much as the real sneaker freaks out there.  But I’ve got boxes and boxes of them.  So of course they are a favorite subject for me.  Here is one of my favorite shots.  One day I will stand on a double-decker bus taking tour of London holding up the shoe and taking a picture as the we pass Big Ben.

So I seem to be addicted to creating new blogs. This one is for Aminus3. I guess I thought I would try out a new blog, but that is dedicated to photography. It’s kind of like flickr but on a smaller scale (at least to me). I started it off with a photo that was taken a year ago. Oh well.

Here is the pic I used:

Classic images from the Philippines

There are the shots that are always seen when one goes to the Philippines. Here are mine.

Bea’s Birthday at Island Cove, Cavite, Philippines

My niece’s birthday party was not going to be held until April 24, but we had dinner together at Island Cove on her real birthday. It is a resort, night club, and restaurant. You can eat out over the water. Here is a shot I got of the restaurant.

Critical Mass in San Diego

I had no idea what Critical Mass was until my co-workers started to talk about it.  If you haven’t heard, it’s an event to raise awareness of cycling… either go out and ride, or have some respect for the cyclists on the road.  It happens the last Friday of every month in cities all over the world.   But this event goes for about 30 miles all over San Diego, with the bikes taking over the streets.  I’m in no way ready for that.  But it is a very cool photo opportunity.  It’s very entertaining to see all the different kind of bikes.  Fixies, regular street bikes, mountain bikes, double deckers, and some that resemble U.F.O.’s with all the lights.  I think the next time I’m able to attend, I’ll take more pictures of the different bicycles out there prior to everyone riding out.  Here in San Diego, the meeting place is at Balboa Park.

My bike that has only ridden a few miles of Critical Mass:

A Hi-Bike or double decker as I like to call it:

Crazy Bike!
