Random Flickr Photo of the Day

Apologies for the absense of this post. I got caught up with work and a few other personal chores. But now back to our regularly scheduled randomness.

This was again, shot in 2009, when my buddy and I went all out and ate at Morimoto’s Restaurant in Philadelphia. I shot it from the entrance vestibule looking in, as it does have that ‘wow’ factor when you walk in. With changing colors on the lights, and a wavy, aquatic feel to the place. I just wish I didn’t include that thing in the middle, it sort of is a bit distracting, ok, it is distracting. Hopefully i’ll get another chance at dining there again. It is one of the best food experiences i’ve ever had, and I don’t even care I paid $250.00 for my half of the bill.

I shot this during my aunt and uncles renewal of their vows. I also got a stern looking at from the priest after I did, as I stepped on the alter side of the church, and that apparently is a big no no.

This was a shot from 2009 using my Pentax K20D. What I really love with the Pentax bodies is the anti-shake built in the bodies, and not in the lens, granted, my D700 can shoot at low light with no problems at higher ISO’s. The joy’s of having a bigger sensor.

In any case, this was shot in RAW, with some minor corrections in processing via Lightroom.
