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.

Traveling with your iPhone
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.
San Diego County Fair
My one an only trip to the fair this year. Kinda cool being on the outside looking in.
The Prado at Night
Nothing more beautiful than the Prado at night.
The Cabin and Remembering Ray
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.
Blessing of the Animals
April in Ramona
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!
