iPhone 5 Photo Test

I finally gave in and upgraded to an iPhone 5 this weekend.  The one thing I was excited about is the phone camera and how it performs in low light and close ups. I happened to be at Mission Cheese for a quick meal this weekend and sat indoor.  Captured …

Explorations with Water: Morning Dew

Morning dew creates a very strong emotion for me of being alive.  Maybe it’s that waking up in the morning and capturing what nature has done overnight. Or maybe it’s just water in nature.  Regardless, it’s powerful though it can go unnoticed.  Took out my macro and took advantage of …
