A poor shot of the Moon. I fogot to set up the settings manually. It was foggy and didn't think I'd get any shots. But there you go. The Moon looked big but then on the horizon, it always does. And my sci fi novel is big to me: For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee. My other books are up there as Leslie R. Lee. Appears to only be B & N so far. Just so you know,... Continue reading

Someone threw some soap or detergent into the fountains on the Santa Monica Promenade on Sunday. The kids really liked it. Evenutally, the authorities put caution tape all around the affected fountain. Probably because they didn't know what else was thrown in there. However, that would be true at any time. Hopefully, whatever was making the bubbles was harmless. Hopefully, my scifi novel isn't completey harmless either: For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble.

Thought the play of light and dark on the wicker of this piece of furniture was interesting. At least to me. I thought I would turn it into black and white when I processed it. But I liked the color, the huse of the wicker. The original processing seemed more red to me. So I don't what happened when it was turned into a JPEG. Still like it though Something I like as well: For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name... Continue reading

Ducks at the Getty. Can't be more descriptive than that. Although the Getty has drained one of their fountains to conserve water, they have kept their main pool going. I think that is necessary not for the visitors of all kinds to enjoy and find peace at the museum. I'm sure the mom and the seven ducklings are most appreciative as well. Something you might appreciate as well: For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee.

The stamin (?) of a big yellow blossom off a tree. The blossoms are about the size of my hand in length. Very pretty. Also full of bees which freaked out some people. As I have said previously, if you want to know how completely uninterested most bees are in you, just try taking a shot of one. They just don't care. As long as you don't you don't bug them. Then they care a bunch. And here's something I care about! For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the... Continue reading

This is taken from the last car of the tram that takes you from the parking lot to the Getty and vice versa. In this particular case, it was taken on the way out back to the parking lot. It's a short little tram ride but very pleasant when it's not too crowded. A very pleasant day there as always. The museum is free but parking is $15.00. If you're going to eat at the restaurant I suggest making a reservation online or as soon as you get there. The cafeteria is excellent and much cheaper. Or even better, take... Continue reading

Playing around with composition and depth of field. And cropping. I tend to shoot wide then crop close. That's the best reason for having a bunch of megpixels on your sensor. To be able to crop and still have a decent shot. Just my opinion. And no need to ask my opinion on my own science fiction book?

One of the fountains at The Getty has been drained for the duration of the drought. A shame since this looks great when it has running water. Always popular with the kids. The big pool with the waterfall is still running. A family of ducks is enjoying that. Have you been missing me pushing my scifi book?

I've been processing rather than posting. And now I'm almost caught up, I shall start posting again. I'm sure you've been missing them right? This was taken recently in the UCLA Mildren Mathias Botanical Garden. The garden has been going through some renovation, recently opening up a new entrance and some new displays. It is well worth the visit. Mildred E.

This little girl just appeared in the shot suddently as I was taking a shot of my wife at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. I don't even recall her being in the shot or her running into it. Don't know if that's a case of a senior moment or concentrating so hard on the composition that someone can run into it and I'm not noticing. In any case, I really love it. And you know... My novel! It's right here! For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the... Continue reading

Actualy a shot by my butt as I was walking along. I do this often and I almost always like the effect. I hate to think that my butt can take more interesting shots than me though.

My wife took this photo with her iPhone. I appropriated it and added some weird processing. So I now consider it to be my image LOL. That is Mount Rainier in the background there. We were very fortunate to get a few clear days when we were up there a few months back. No, it didn't quite look like this. And hey, here again is my novel!

Thought this looked good as a grayscale image. Just to catch the lines and shapes and the silhouettes of the trees in the background. And it has a slight erotic feel to it.

Another shot of the Sundial Bridge in Redding, California. I'm slowly processing all the photos I took those months ago. Taking photos is easy. Processing them is fun but is a lot of work. Trying to capture the feeling that I had when I took the shot is hard and sometimes it just doesn't come through. Still, it is very much worth the effort to me.

Continuing to process photos from my trip up to Washington. This is the Sacramento River and I believe that is Mount Shasta in the background.

Just some glasses. But I like the pattern and that it's almost just a grayscale shot. I wish I'd used a higher f-stop for better D of F but it's not bad like this either. Probably would have needed a tripod. Here ya go... For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee.

Not a very good shot. But still was very exciting for me to see them. This nesting pair are at Shasta Dam. I thin that there might even be a webcam of them but I can't find it. Shasta Dam is well worth a trip. The dam is huge. There are tours though we must managed to miss one unfortunately. A great place. I'll post some shots of the dam itself. And...

One of the best places to visit up if you're in the Seattle-Tacoma area is the Museum of Glass. For a very reasonable entrance fee, you get to watch glass being made and see different glass exhibitions. The building itself is unique in my experience. Have lunch at the cafe. Good food though it can get crowded since it is small. Parking underneath the museum for a small fee. Walk across the bridge of glass which has some more examples of glass to the courthouse. That used to be a train station. Now it houses courts as well as more... Continue reading
