Canon EOS 450D

It figures.  Shortly after purchasing my 400D, the 450D comes out.  It’s got some neat features, but probably not worth getting too excited over yet.  There’s one significant missing feature that would hold me back from upgrading — no “custom” settings.  I find that this is the most annoying missing feature of the prosumer DSLRs.  […]

Published Rodeo Photo

The Seattle Times published one of my photos in their “Pix From My Weekend” site.  This is the first time I’ve had one of my photos published in  the print media.  You can see the photo in its full glory at  Below is a screen cap of the web page where the photo is […]

800 Mile Loop Through British Columbia

Last weekend seven of us took a ride from Seattle out to Wenatchee, up through Osoyoos and Penticton, to Merritt, Harrison Hot Springs and back.  Here’s a photo just north of Penticton taken by a friend with my camera (f/8, 1/160, 21mm):

Flying Wheels

I’ve been getting into cycling and on Saturday I rode the Flying Wheels Summer Century. I rode the 70 mile route (not the 100) in preparation for the STP, the 200 mile 2 day Seattle to Portland bike ride.  It’s not quite the same as riding the Hog, but lots of fun nonetheless.  I’m definitely […]

300 Miles to Yakima on 28 May

The ride to Yakima continues to be fun, including the stop in Roslyn, where Northern Exposure was filmed.  Here’s a shot of me alongside the Yakima River. Shot by a friend with my Canon XTi, f7.1, 28mm, 1/125sec.

Deception Pass

Another great riding day.  Here’s a photo of me at Deception Pass on Whidbey Island.  Shot with my new XTi, focal length 18mm (kit lens), f4/5, ISO 100, 1/400 sec.

Hawaii Vacation

Two pretty cool images from my trip. The first one was taken late in the day at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. It was not shot as black and white, but it sure looks like it came out that way. The image is unaltered except to scale it for the web. Shot […]

Camping on the Peninsula

Before the end of the summer, we went to the Olympic Peninsula for a 3 day camping trip. The bike pose should look familiar :-). I bought a new Trek 7100 before the trip, replacing my 15 year old Schwinn 10-speed bike.

Hydroplanes on Lake Sammamish

I was told at the event that this occurred all across the country, but I had never seen it before — hydroplane racing. These are smaller versions of the hydroplanes sometimes shown on TV. I had my bigger zoom with me — this was shot at 300mm, f/5.6, 1/2000 sec. I did crop the image […]

Whale off of San Juan Island

Shot at with a mere 135mm lens — that should tell you how close this whale was. F7.1, 1/400 sec, ISO 100. Very cool whale watching trip. The guide was great and the whales were cooperative. Um, this should look like the pose I usually have when I lean on my motorcycle. Had to get […]
