Another Day

.
We spent a bit of time in the house today, but with errands to run, we again found ourselves down in Santa Cruz. Due to this damned daylight savings time, before we knew it, the sun was setting.

Since we were already down in Santa Cruz,
we figured a visit to the wharf was in order.

Seagull hineys,
I love em.


There's something about the pose
this gull was striking . . .
Maybe he was stalking prey.


Good sunset tonight.


As the sun went down,
I couldn't resist the color
of the sun on the water.


I just kept shooting . . .


One final sunset.


Then I looked up
and saw this lovely sliver moon.
This is a SOOC shot with the new camera.
You can click to open
in a new window and see the detail.


When I put it in the computer,
I enhanced it just a bit.
I'm sure pleased with the
image stabilization of the new camera.
This was taken hand held.


This is for Russ and Donna.
You guys could stay right here . . .


Now that the sun was down,
we decided to head over to Carpo's,
our favorite restaurant.
While In the moving car,
I usually shoot with my iPhone.


It keeps me occupied . . .


Lately I've been playing
with an infrared setting on the phone.


I'll tell you,
I really need to get back on the road
so all I have to do is play with my cameras,
sight see
and have a good time.

Back to work tomorrow.

Kate...I think you're a manic photographer...lots of great pictures...good eye for detail...you shoot things other people don't even see! Love your photos! Thanks for the harbor shot...that would be a cool place to spend some time. Afraid that can't happen this time, though. Got to get on up the freeway to home. Only have our house & Rusty sitter for a few more days. We've got to work on better alternatives so we can get out more often.

Great pics. I g=just received my iPhone and am playing with the camera, have to learn about the settings on it. Emptying a house is a big task, when I was doing it, I just wanted it all to magically go away. I wanted to try and make some money and not just giveaway or throw away everything. I did sell some , but most ended up being donated and then at the last minute, tossed. Having a contract on the house and a fast closing forced me to move faster at the end, but then I was exhausted.

What you have in the house, was what you enjoyed in the past. Now it is time to move on and enjoy new things.

Maybe that seagull is practicing to be a vulture when it grows up.

Great pictures again Kate. I see there are some surfers taking advantage of the wind whipped waves. Wish we were there to go to Carpos with you - sure would like some more of that bread!
