Sycamore Stand

A brief little status update here since it’s been a bit quiet on the blog. As I mentioned in my July summary, I was thinking about making August the month of a photographical sabbatical – which is not that easy really since my photographic eye is attracted to things all the time. :) So I guess it’s a “soft sabbatical” – I’m not forcing it (and I even left the camera at home for an evening walk at the beach yesterday!) but when there’s an opportunity, it would be foolish to not take it. :)

Mostly, I’ve been doing some necessary house-keeping, adding keywords to the photos here on the site, and adding photos from the past couple of months to my Fine Art America store (slowly but steadily catching up with whats already here on the site – I’ll have to continue doing that for a while!:-).

I do not add all photos from my blog posts to the store, only those that I personally favor. Your taste may very well differ (and that’s a good thing!) so if you see any photo here that you want to see in the store for purchasing a print, greeting card, canvas or whatever then please just let me know and I’ll happily add it for you.

Talking about photographic opportunities – here’s a cellphone panorama of a sycamore stand at Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve that I made this morning. I don’t know how many times I walked past this cool stand of trees (or is it one tree?), and I think this take really nails it. It’s funny how the different take and perspective of using the phone can open up possibilities we just wouldn’t see otherwise, photographically – panoramas in particular are so super easy with the phone! (with the DSLR, I consider them a bit of a chore, but I’m tempted to return with the DSLR now that I know what to do with that tree.)

Since it’s a panorama I uploaded it a bit larger than usual – I recommend switching your browser to fullscreen mode (usually that’s done by pressing F11) and then clicking on the image to open it in the gallery/slideshow view.

See you around!
