Iconic - Leica Q2, f/8, 1/125s, ISO 100.
There is probably a 100,000 images of the Eiffel Tower made everyday, so I just focused on pictures of the kids while there, still couldn’t help but take a quick snap on the way out.

Inspecting the Damage

Inspecting the Damage - Leica Q2, f/5.6, 1/50s, ISO 100.

I was only going to take a picture of the damage, but then this old woman walked right up close almost as if she was inspecting it which I thought made the image more interesting.

Cats and Bird

It was Maya that pointed out these two fat cats sitting on the window as were quickly eating our lunch on the street below.  As the pigeons would walk across, the cats would carefully track their exact movement even though they were powerless to do anything about them.

Rancho San Vicente Sunrise

Rancho San Vicente Sunrise - Alpa STC, IQ4 150, 32mm, f/11, 1/30s, ISO 50.

I made this image yesterday at sunrise and it was looking like it was going to be a total bust.  I only had a little bit of time and wasn’t seeing anything I liked with California Live Oak and wildflowers when I started playing with this rock with lichen growing on it.  Initially I was shooting with the sun but on a whim I decided to shoot into the sun, not expecting much but in the end it turned out to be an interesting photo.  What drew me to the scene as in that in the first few minutes the sun first rises above the hills it bathes only portion of the landscape in warm light making for an interesting layering of light and color.

Cloudy Pool

Cloudy Pool - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 40mm, f/14, 1s, ISO 50.
Its always tempting to make the big, beautiful waterfall the subject, but here I like that Selfoss becomes the background, allowing the little cloudy pool of water surrounded by splashes of color to e the main subject.  I made a similar image from the same shoot in black & white a while ago but I think I prefer this color one.
