Point Defiance Dahlia Garden

I don’t know the first thing about gardening or growing flowers, but I do love dahlias. Point Defiance Park in Tacoma has a beautiful dahlia garden that blooms this time every year. It’s free to the public, well maintained, with ample parking, and is very enjoyable. Today was a perfect day for macro photography – ...

Rancho Rio Team Roping in Wickenburg, AZ

I was in Arizona visiting clients this week, and spent Thursday in Wickenburg. Normally my visit is in late April. At that time, Wickenburg is a a ghost town, but not this trip! The town was packed – cowboys everywhere. I had no idea that the day would take me down to a rodeo, but ...

When I got home, I decided to look at the specs of the iPhone 6s Plus ...

Yesterday, I picked up a Zeiss Touit 50mm macro lens for the Fuji X system. Unlike the Fuji 60mm, the Zeiss lens lets you get really close up and is fairly snappy with regards to autofocus performance. It also really shines as a portrait lens too! The next six photos were taken during lunch at ...
