Westward the Course of Empire Goes Forth
Look way up the next time you're in Victoria's Bay Centre, and you'll spot this inscription written below the clock tower suspended by the 4th floor: "Westward the Course of Empire Goes Forth" No one quite knows what it means, but I definitely like the clock. Nikon D600 and Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens at 65mm, handheld for 1/125 second at f/6.3, ISO 400. Basic edits in Lightroom 4.
Reflecting on a Legacy
Our poor old drawbridge looks so sad. Replacement of Victoria's Johnson Street blue bridge begins next month, so I wanted to get some more photographs before the construction crews spoil the view. This bascule type bridge from 1920 was designed by Joseph Strauss, who later designed San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Nikon D600 and Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G VR at 28mm, 5 tripod mounted exposures between 1/10 and 1/60 second, f/6.3 and f/8, ISO 400 and 640. HDR processed in Photomatix Pro...

I'm hoping to go back and do a much larger shoot in the near future. I noticed how the setting sun was lighting up their wine rack, so I parked myself by the bar and had a beer (strictly for photographic purposes) while waiting for the outside light to balance with that of the...
Uncropped: Pucker Up Buttercup
Flowers are so cool closeup. This is a clematis from my Mom's garden on her birthday. Clematis is "a genus of about 300 species within the buttercup family Ranunculaceae." ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clematis I used my telephoto lens zoomed all the way out to 300mm, then experimented with various cropping alternatives using Lightroom's different crop overlays (hint: try using the O-key and shift-O during crop). Handheld expoure for 1/80 second on my Nikon D600 at f/8, ISO...
