Another fine day of wine tasting last weekend. I think we’ve discovered a new favorite region… Amador County! The scenery was nice, the people were very friendly, and the wines were fantastic!
This little day trip has been on my radar for months. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the ripening of the grapes so I could get some nice close-ups. That day finally arrived over the weekend.
The second to last weekend of exploring on my own has arrived. I’m looking forward to moving my wife out here so we can go back and explore these places, and many more, together. Today’s jaunt: Amdaor City.
I only had one photo destination on my radar this weekend: Sutter Creek. I spent about an hour walking up and down main street, doing everything in my power to avoid the wine tasting shops since I had to drive home. 🙁 Still, a beautiful little town that I’ll go back to when I can get a room and don’t have to work the next day.
Exploring NorCal again today. This adventure took me to Jack London State Park, where I got a few shot of the wolf house ruins and one of his grave… Chilling (with the right processing).
My California exploration continues, albeit in a very subdued way today. A quick trip to the Effie Yeaw Nature Center near Sacramento was a nice way to spend an hour a warm March afternoon.
Took a stroll down to the local pumpkin patch today. I was able to get there early enough to beat the rush of people and grab a few shots.
Day two of the five day black and white challenge. After a long day of work I was feeling lazy and grabbed an old practice pad and shot it with my iPhone. I’ll put more into it tomorrow.
A friend of mine challenged me to take 5 black and white photos in 5 days. I’m pretty lazy and don’t often shoot 5 days in a row, unless I’m on vacation. Accepting the challenge was a great way to keep me engaged, so here we go with day 1:
Finally took the new Fuji X-T1 out for a proper test drive. Thanks to focus peaking, this is the first time in my life I’ve ever felt comfortable manually focusing. I really enjoyed it and think it may become my preferred method of shooting. Below are a few shots from my walk.
