I recently participated in a Nifty-Fifty walk, where photographers create photos using a 50mm lens. It’s a challenge in today’s “zoom-in, zoom-out” world. Not to long ago, almost every film camera with inter-changeable lenses was sold with the 50mm or normal lens. Today, most DSLRs are sold with a zoom lens. If you only have a zoom lens, you can use painters’ tape to the lens at the 50mm point and start the Nifty-Fifty challenge.

As much as I enjoy creating images with a dSLR or a CSC (Compact System Cameras, aka mirrorless camera), I also really like using my iPhone for photography as well, especially when I travel. Of course, the biggest drawback is smaller file size and loss of overall image quality. In balancing those deficiencies, my approach is different and I find it frees me up a bit for some creative fun, as seen here in these images from a recent trip to Seattle.
My one an only trip to the fair this year. Kinda cool being on the outside looking in.
Sunday was a day of family, friends and remembrance. We gathered to celebrate family and remember our dear Ray Baksh. We will all miss him for he was truly a light that shone bright in the hearts of so many.
Spending a day with friends and family in Ramona in April is always a fun time. The weather was a bit overcast and a little chilly, but there was lots of good food, friendly animals and of course an Easter egg hunt! I wouldn’t miss it!
