Ahhhh….sunsets from the deserts never grow old.

Another roadside find along Palmdale blvd. around the el mirage and lake LA vicinity. I think my finger unintentionally touched the focus wheel of my lens while shooting this so i accidentally captured the shack just slightly out of focus but, i think the end result seems to have added a special unique vintage or mysterious quality to image that you can only get from a pleasant photo mistake.

Havin’ a bit of fun with my pet tortoise, and making him look far larger than he really is resting next to a miniature n scale version of my car. If it isn’t obvious, i was a big fan of old monster movies like Godzilla and Gamera. 🙂

So, i have recently purchased an android tablet and have been trying to do some posting using just some quick built in photo editing tools to see how they turn out in comparison to my desktop pc. I’m feeling sort of like i’m instagramming in a way but at least my photos can be uploaded at full aspect ratio as opposed to having to crop everything in 1:1 frame. The photos above are of a little hummingbird who was perched in the backyard tree yesterday. The original shots turned out rather dark so they initially all pretty much looked just like sillouhettes (like the black and white shot in the middle) so, using some quick and easy android photo app tools i brightened and sharpened them up a bit so hopefully they turned out ok. I must say that i do love taking advantage of my csc’s wifi capability to transfer photos to my mobile devices.

Saw this little fella in the backyard in a broken down wheel barrow and just couldn’t resist getting a shot!
