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

20130518-153106.jpg

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!
