{Travel Theme} Sculpture

This weeks Travel Theme at Where’s my backpack is pretty cool. Here are some pics from San Diego exactly from Balboa Park. I recommend everybody who visits SD to go there. I used to go there almost every weekend and explore it with my camera. Every time I came back with tons of pictures.

{Inspire Me…} To Travel

I decided to use this quote because I’m traveling right now from Prague to Warsaw. I think this describes perfectly my time in Prague.

I hope some day (some day soon) this quote affect my thinking.In last year with my dad passing away, being far away from my family and friends I lost my confidence, enthusiasm, and happiness.  I find myself comparing and wishing to be as good as someone else. I know who I am, I am just lost at this moment. I’m looking for cure. Magic cure that one day will bring joy into my life. I know time heals all wounds, but how long will it take? I’m repeating these quote to myself for weeks now hoping one day I will see beauty of our world again.

Great post on how to shoot hummingbirds. I will definitely use these techniques when shooting these little flying critters.

Last week I posted some experiments from a photo challenge where the aim was to shoot your DSLR like it was a film challenge, limiting options and processing simply – no image stabilization, set a single ISO setting – bare bones. I learned some things by minimizing the technology and decided to apply some things to my regular shooting process while utilizing all the features of my DSLR.

Here are some things I was forced to try when I limited my camera’s functionality that can I apply to my everyday shooting:

1. Get close. Hummers at a feeder could care less about you. They may chirp a bit, but if you position yourself close to the feeders before they approach, they will come anyway – food is more important than you. I was actually standing on a step stool a few feet from a couple of the feeders for these shots.

{Fun Friday} Jesse the Jack Russell

When I first time saw video of this little guy I couldn’t stop smiling. I’m following his YouTube channel for over a year now. Every time something new is posted it surprises me and makes me smile. I think he is the smartest puppy ever. I know how much time dog training requires and I admire his owner for doing such an amazing job. If you want to see what Jesse is up to – head over to his blog: Just Jesse.

When I saw this beautiful picture I had to share it with you. I think it is one of the most gorgeous animal portraits I’ve seen. I just love it!
