Random photo of the day – November 27, 2012 – Flickr Edition

It’s been a while since I posted a random photo.  Just been behind on a few things.  In any case, here is an oldy.  It snowed a bit today, and reminded me of some older snow scenes that I’ve taken. And looking through my older shots, I saw this one.

Shot with my old Pentax K10D and Pentax’s DA 10-17mm Fisheye.

Shooting snowy scenes always gives me this calming effect, the quietness, the serenity of everything after a fresh snow fall gives you this peace from with in.  At least with me.  I hope you enjoyed.

Pork steam buns from Ippudo – NYC

In short, EPIC. I seriously do not have the expanded vocabulary to even come up with an adjective to describe on  how good this is. All i have to say is if you are ever in NYC, you must give it a go. Oh, and their Ramen’s are also EPIC.

Superman and Lois

One of the best look a likes for Superman I have seen, and Lois is not far off either. Even Lex Luthor in the background is pretty close. I later found out from a friend in Florida, that he does this a lot, and he actually knew him. Small world eh?

With Thanksgiving practically around the corner, I thought I’d remind everyone (at least for those in the United States) of the awesome food that we will all be consuming.

This was from 2 years ago.  I have yet to process my photos from last year’s Thanksgiving, which I think I should…….=/

Dead Bug

Apologies, I am a bit late in posting this photo.  I was a bit torn on what to post today, and I was also busy at work earlier, and I could not sneak it in.  In any case, I don’t know what sort of insect this is, but I found it somewhere, and I decided to keep it in a film canister for photo purposes.  Set on a white poster board, it made for a nice peaceful photo if you may.

I used my Nikon D700 with the Micro Nikkor 60mm Macro, and a Nikon SB900 flassh pointed up.

Toy cars

These were the first few days I shot of this years, very short, and very much failed 365 set.  My first subject was toy cars, and I did have a ton to shoot, but a trip to Florida, and some other stuff going down quickly put a kibosh on my project. Maybe next year I can get going on it again, maybe.

I actually didn’t shoot this.  My friend shot this, and this image is highly edited.  This was during possibly the greatest vacation I ever took.  End of summer 2009, I went to the Pacific Northwest for a few days for fun and relaxation.  It was all of that and then some.  Just travelling without and stress is a worth ten times more than the cost of the trip itself.

My friend showed me around the Seattle area, and we took a drive down to  Portland, Oregon for the day.  On the drive back, we elected to drive towards the Pacific Coast Highway, to stop by the Pacific Ocean.  We got there a few minutes before the sun started to set.  I took a few shots of my own of the sun set, and little did I know my friend was taking photos of me taking photos of the scenery.  I turned around and saw her, so I decided to take a pic of her also, and this was that photo.  I ended up messing around wit it a bit in photoshop, and I made it look like i was shooting the sunset instead of me taking a picture of her.

One of  my fave shots during the ‘Where is Garfield Now’ era, or WIGN for short.  I just did some play with some lights, and made one of my Alien toys, stalking Garfield.

I really ought to bring back a similar series. The original Pez dispenser is all beat up, so I should pick up another similar one.

Shot during my first month of owning the D700, and well, at a time where my hours were cut to 4 day’s every other week , hence giving me the opportunity to go out and shoot. I mostly ended up NY’s Central Park.

This particular one, I happen to catch a man preparing to play his portable piano.  It wasn’t a keyboard, bit it was some sort of piano.  I thought it would be a great shot to catch his silhouette, and use the rest of the park outside the arches as the backdrop.  I don’t know, maybe now I might do it a little different.

A few first’s for this RFPD.  It’s the first entry that I shot this year, first that is also the most viewed from my Flickr Photostream, and the first flower shot with my new to me Nikkor 50mm f/1.4. (picked it up this past Friday).

This was shot at Cheesecake’s house, in their backyard.  Not that crazy about it, but I really was just playing around with my new to me lens.  I have shot with the fast fifty before, but, this one, I call my own, and it just feels different.  It’s one of my favorite lenses really, and I am so glad to have it finally in my bag.  Hopefully I can get to shoot more with it soon.

I might do some more post-editing on this one.  I’ll make sure to post it up when I do.
