This weekend, I consolidated all of the RAW photo files from various external hard drives into a single Lightroom catalog that I can swap between my Mac and my PC. In doing so, I can across some pictures I’ve taken that struck me as interesting for one reason or another, so I decided to share them. So, here are some selected photos I’ve taken since 2012, that haven’t shared before.
Chris and I took some time to head down to La Jolla on today and take some photographs. The coast at La Jolla is home to loads of marine life, and they’re so used to people that you can get pretty close to them without frightening them. Which we did. All the pics are clickable for hi-res versions.
Here’s a little photoblogging post. For this one, I thought I would monkey around with a bit of black and white photography. All the pictures are clickable for the hi-res versions.
Chris and I were spending time in the backyard with the dogs, and I decided to pull out my Panasonic Lumix FZ-200 and take some pictures. The star of the show turned out to be—as it almost always is—our goofy boxer, Apollo. Click on the photos for the hi-res versions.
Apollo has this little hard plastic ball that was once a baby toy. He goes full-goose loony whenever he plays with it. Giving it to him is a good way to get him to play himself to exhaustion.
Titus, my big, old, lazy, dumb galloot.
Titus is also a bit…slobbery.
Apollo has a very long tongue. The more he plays with his ball, the longer it gets.
Apollo is not only obsessive about his ball, he’s obsessive about playing with water. So, once he gets himself overheated by playing with the ball, we can cool him down by letting him play with the hose. The rest of the pictures show Apollo’s um, complicated relationship with the hose.
Our lives would be a lot emptier without these guys.
Chris and I went down to Oceanside today, and I took along the FZ200 to take a few pictures. This time though, rather than fill up the front page, all the pictures are below the fold. All the pics are clickable, so you can see a 1920×1280 larger version
Chris and I went downtown to take some pictures. This time, instead of lugging around an SLR, I took my new Panasonic Lumix FZ200. It’s a 12.1 megapixel bridge camera, with a 28mm-600mm superzoom lens. I wanted to see how it would do as a walking-around camera. I think the answer is, "very well."

And finally, to show you how powerful the zoom and video capabilities of this little camera are, I give you The Dog Walker.
