Easter Pictures

Happy Easter, everyone!

Here are some Easter pictures. Not that they're Easter-themed, I just happened to take them today.

Flying Bee (Mar 23, 2008)
While we were out doing yard work today, I noticed the busy bees visiting all the lavender stalks and thought it would be a good use for my macro tube.
Of course, the problem with photomacrographing bees is that you have to be pretty close. One landed on my arm, startling me so much I threw my lens cap down the driveway. (I don't like bugs. Stinging bugs especially.) Next time I should try using my 300mm lens.Bee (Mar 23, 2008)
Glass Dog (Mar 23, 2008)
Glass Dog on Orange (Mar 23, 2008)
We picked about 40lbs of oranges today, and it barely made a dent in the tree. While I was getting some orange skin pics, Peanut added the glass long-dog to the composition. And that's not shag carpet; it's just a towel.

Cameraphones aren't useless

As much as I'd like to always have my dSLR handy, the truth is it's too bulky to take with me all the time. Especially when I add in telephoto and macro lenses "just in case." That's where having a camera on my cellphone comes in handy. Sure, it's not a great camera, but some of the pictures turn out pretty good, like these two from Santa Cruz.
Beach and Birds (Dec 22, 2006)
Santa Cruz Beach (Dec 22, 2006)

I liked the saturation and high contrast in those two.

Seen in the Local Used Bookstore

Star Trek Nonfiction (Dec 21, 2007)
I saw this in the used bookstore here in Mountain View. I never did manage to find section #7 to see the nonfiction Star Trek books. Maybe you have to teleport there...

Deliah is a Lolcat

Alien Kitteh (Nov 18, 2007)
I finally submitted one of my pictures to I Can Has Cheezburger. You can see it here.
Deliah was on the bed, and I was down on the floor shooting up at her. The ceiling light was right above her, leading to the "alien" effect.

Pictures of Real People

Today, I have a real treat for everyone. Not only do I have pictures of actual people *gasp*, but also pictures of myself. That almost never happens.

I took these today after we got home from work.
This last one is a rare find. Both of us AND we're dressed up. Granted, I didn't take this one. It's from the Finisar 20th Anniversary party (3/8/08).

Well, I hope you enjoyed the change of pace. I'll get back to my usual pictures of pets and random things next time.
