Yet another week comes to an end and what better way to end it than another sunset from La Jolla shores Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
The lifeguard tower over children’s pool at La Jolla Cove around sunset. Considering how this the highest point overlooking the ocean and its on top of a rocky area, this is probably the central tower for La Jolla as the ocean is not very accesible from that point specially in case of an emergency!
A part of the UCSD campus around the La Jolla Scripps Pier, this is most probably used by the research staff & graduate students of the university.
A picture of La Jolla cove from children’s pool beach. Since the sun was still out and it was bright no matter how low I bumped my ISO and how small I set my aperture I couldn’t get the shutter slow enough to smooth out the water. I had to use my variable neutral density filter (which acts like a pair of sunglasses) to get the silky waters effect. In essence, the filter blocks the amount of light the sensor sees and the the shutter will remain open for a longer period to allow for a correct exposure; and this will get you the silky water effect
Last night’s sunset was epic! Nature put on quite a show; within a span of half an hour the sky changed so many colors, it was incredible. A time-lapse would’ve been a lot more appropriate than this HDR but this was towards the last fifteen minutes where the sky went from yellow to orange to red. Here is an an instagram picture that I took with my phone without applying any filters about 10 minutes after taking the brackets above. Just look at all these people just staring the sunset, there were so many more above fromContinue Reading»
I haven’t done a sunset shot in a long time, at least it feels like it to me. This was this past Saturday’s sunset at La Jolla shores, I took a stroll down to the beach just to enjoy the warm days as they haven’t left Southern California yet. I was wrapping up my shots for the day and I saw this photographer working with a couple and trying to setup the shot for them; I decided to take a picture of them
**** Update: After a week of playing hard ball with me, in less than 24 hrs of posting this post it was finally removed. I don’t how but maybe social media does work
Yesterday’s post was about what makes me happy but today’s post is about something that is making me angry! I’m definitely feeling like a small man knocking on the bully’s door and he is refusing to acknowledge me… you’ll notice that I’m adding a little blurb under my images because of this incident. Here is what is going on, sometime last week I wanted to try the google search by images feature by using one of my ownContinue Reading»
I really wanted to do an HDR of this image and I actually started out by doing so but after looking at what was really going on I didn’t think it was fitting or at least I didn’t like it. The place looks deserted and hasn’t been used in quite some time, the sign that says “Balboa Park Activity Center” has gunk on it! I thought the monochrome was more fitting for the scene.
I know I’ve been MIA for a while, life, school, work and all of that good stuff is catching up to me. I’m in my last semester in grad school and things are in full drive, I hope to keep this post a day thing going but if not I’ll try to keep it as close as possible to that. Anyway enough about me, here are some picture of my colleaguesContinue Reading»
