Elizabeth Gamble Gardens

I got the chance to visit the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens yesterday with a #Meetup group I recently joined called Peninsula Nature Photographers. The garden is located in Palo Alto, CA and is very close to where I work, but I had not known about it until this meetup.

Just upon entering the gardens I quickly knew I could spend a few hours there. From the flowers, to the plants and landscaping, fountains and walkways, it was really a nice and pretty garden. I got some great shots here are a few of my favs, but be sure to check out the full gallery Here!

Whiskeytown Lake Camping Trip


This weekend we are camping at Whiskeytown Lake, this is the second year we have done this with a group of friends and its always a great relaxing trip with boat rides, campfires and amazing weather!

I took this panorama with my iPhone 5 from my spot by our tent while reading and listening to my iPod, so wonderful 🙂

Konica Autoreflex T3

My Grandfather this past weekend let me have some of his old camera equipment, so I am the proud new owner of a Konica Autoreflex T3 camera. With some lenses and accessories (to be coming soon in the mail). The camera was released in 1973 – 1976. The link above takes you to a page with some more information about the camera itself.

Here are a few shots of the camera:


I am excited to play around with it more, it takes 35mm film. So far I have taken some shots around our condo just to get a feel for the controls. So once that roll gets developed I have 2 more unused rolls that I will use to take some more interesting photos. Hopefully will post those soon!

Woodside Horse Park – Grand Prix

The Grand Prix was held tonight at the Woodside Horse Park. Having not been doing much photo stuff recently I was excited for this chance to get some shooting in. Here are just a few that I took that I liked the most, I have added them to my SF Bay & South Bay Area page.

The barn I ride at weekly is just down the street from here so I drive by it frequently, the showing season has just started so I am hoping to get in a show this summer too!
