Walks with my son: Doylestown, PA

So I will be renaming or, at least putting ‘Random Photos’ series on a break for the time being, and adding the above mentioned title. It is more fitting since I usually do these when I take my son out for a walk, or when we as a family go out for a walk.

I will try to use different camera and lens combos so at least each set of shots that I do will be somewhat different. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed taking them. For the first set of shots, I took with us my Pentax K3 with the SMC Pentax 100mm F/2.8 WR Macro mounted for our walk.

We walked by someones front garden filled with flowers, and it was quite active with bees doing their thing. All shots were edited in Lightroom to taste.

Please leave us some feedback below, like our FB page, or just like this post.  It would be better too if you can follow us, so you won’t miss out on stuff you really can miss out on…lol.  But seriously, we’d like to know your thoughts, good or bad

Random Photos – Warrington, PA

My wife, my son and I took advantage of the beautiful early afternoon by taking a stroll at Lower Nike park in Warrington, PA.  It was a good 3 or so mile loop, and it gave us a good light work out.  We also happen to spot a coyote, but I was unable to grab a shot though.

Enjoy some sad attempt at bird photos.  These were shot with the Pentax K3, with a Pentax 100mm F/2.8 Macro WR, and Fujifilm X100S.

Random Photos – Doylestown, PA 3

I’m going to be honest, there’s probably going to be an abundant amount of random photos from Doylestown.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing though.

Shot with Fujifilm X100S, processed to taste in Lightroom.

(Note: I hope the bird survived.  We almost stepped on him.  Not sure if he’s able to move anymore at all.)

Random Photos – Doylestown, Pa 2

I did a walk around on another part of my town, so some different looks. Not as much this time around though. I used my Fuji X100S again, but I also brought my Pentax K3 with a 100mm F/2.8 Macro WR mounted along for the walk. Enjoy!

Random Photos – Doylestown, PA

Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while since we have done a serious stream of posts. Life has been crazy to say the least. I am now a proud new father, and just that alone has taken up my free time. Leading up to this, with all the preparations has eaten up every fiber of my being, as well as my wife. Anyhow, I am hoping to start a new series of posts, simply called ‘Random Photos’ and with a sub-heading of the town I happen to be taking those photos.

Today’s entry is from my current home town, Doylestown, PA. I shot these with a Fuji X100S in raw, edited in Adobe Lightroom to taste. Oh, and I suck at street photography, so bear with it. LoL

2016 Thompson Bucks County Classic – Part 1

Men’s Amateur Racers speeding through the streets of Doylestown

As I mentioned in my last article (seen here), the Thompson Bucks County Classic is one of my favorite events to watch in person every year. The action is fast and furious, and every year as the crowds get bigger, the electricity and the energy just gets multiplied with each passing lap. This year there were 4 races that took place. The Amateur Men’s kicked the day off, followed by the Kid’s Races.  Also, the Classic’s first ever Lenape Scorcher Race took place. (the bikes known as Penny Farther, or Big Front Wheels)

And then we have our Pro Women’s, and Pro Men’s. Of course, in the center of all this action was the Doylestown Arts fest. Sadly, Alvin and I were not able to really soak in the Arts fest for one reason or another. It did seem fun, and definitely a lot activity taking place as we walked through the fest a few times to get from one place to the next.

In years past, I really just approached the weekend as a spectator, taking in the sights and sounds. In the last few years though, I have been taken up in capturing the event, trying to share the joy I get when I watch the race unfold before my eyes. (more…)

I apologize for taking so long to post since the teaser I put up in Snappy Friday.  My son and I had spent the weekend in the state of Pennsylvania to meet up with our friend, JP.  Yes, a road trip!  I do love road trips!  The reason for this road trip?  It was to try my hand at taking some sports photography, namely, the Thompson Bucks County Classic!
