Miami and the Everglades

Friday, September 5th, 2008

I didn’t get a chance to dive due to playing dodge the hurricane, but we get a change to go to the Everglades National Park. The first day we went out to Shark Valley where they have a tram ride that takes you into the park and gives you a chance to see the environment and some of the wild life. The Second day we started and Royal Palm and made our way down to Flamingo bay, where the park ranger wouldn’t come out of his office unless he had a mosquito net over his head.

Shark Valley: With a new camera and lens, I am still learning what the limits are, this time I had a go at taking photos of wildlife and didn’t quite get the shot I wanted. Not sure if it was the Vibration Reduction, the Shutter Speed or lack of depth of field but this shot isn’t quite in focus for the whole bird.

Shark Valley: The two in the shot were young deer that were out in front of the Tram. The driver was scared that they wouldn’t cross over and join their mum who was waiting in the water across the way.

Shark Valley: One of my favorite shots

Royal Palm: Mr Alligator, this was one of 2 watching us from the water.

Royal Palm: This was the third one we saw that day, he was about 2 to 3 feet away cooling him self off under a tree.

Royal Palm: I didn’t quite get this guy all in focus, but still a good shot.

Royal Palm: Mr Frog eyes just above the water

Amnesty International Guantánamo Cell Tour

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

I had the opportunity yesterday to take photos for Amnesty International’s Guantánamo Cell Tour which is on the mall till Sunday. One of my photos was used in the story on James Yee and Mahvish Khan both talked about their time working at the prison and the people they met there. There was music from Salim and the music lovers, and two other bands, Salim was by far the best act.

Oh and if you are wondering who the two guys on top of a building are, let just say we saw three helicopters swing over to the white house and one land just before we saw these two chatting on the roof.

Herndon Festival

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

I went to the festival, more to take photos than to partake in the events. For these shots I was playing with the auto iso setting, and playing with the hue/saturation settings. For the fireworks shots I had a tripod and tried different settings including bulb.
