Turns out, my step-dad came into a pile of fireworks, which we set off last night. Out of quite a few shots, I was able to get a few that I liked (at least after tinkering with them in Lightroom ).

From the 11th to the 23rd, Sara and I were in Paris and London. The first 6 days or so were for me to work a conference and cowork, then Sara and I stayed for time for just the two of us.
For this trip, I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as usual. I’m not sure why. I really haven’t taken many pictures lately at all, which is kind of sad I suppose.
But, c’est la vie.
Here are several that I got from around Paris and London.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to Costa Rica for a team meetup where I would work on my last project as part of team Poseidon.
I took my camera along and was able to get a few pictures which are below:
I didn’t get as many pictures this time as in previous trips, so I was super happy when Ashleigh Axios shared her pictures and video from the trip, some of which are below:
My cousin is the drummer for Dog Waltz, and they played at 9th street studios tonight, so I tried to get some pictures.
I ended up using my prime 35mm lens since it could go to f/1.8 and my zoom only goes to f/4. A couple of them turned out OK, but many are soft or looked a bit off after playing with them. Low light sure is fun.
Our family got together this past Saturday and went to Bill’s Fish House. After we were done, we got to catch the sunrise from the field beside the restaurant. Not too bad for “flyover country”.
Next time I shoot a sunset, I think I might try a graduated filter to see if I can get a better exposure in the foreground.
