Day 5 – Photo A Day May (Zoom)

OK… for those of you that are following this to see some creativity in photography, you may be disappointed in todays picture.

Ever since I looked at the list for May and saw that day 5 was Zoom… I  could not get out of my head the song from a T.V. Show that I used to watch when I was a kid call, what else, Zoom.  It was a poor mans Mickey Mouse Club.  It had a weird language called something like Ubby Wubby Nubby Tubby or something like that and had kids to a bunch of funny skits (well funny to me because I was a kid).

I really couldn’t find a good picture so to keep it in the theme, I took a pic of my screen :)













You can see the opening credits here :

It really brought back some memories. Does anyone else remember this?

Tomorrow is High Angle… .So I will get back to the “real” shots.


Day 4 – Photo a Day May (Black & White)

Since this day was “Black and White”  it could have really been anything so I took some liberty with this one.













Although now that I think of it, I should have done a Starwars themed pic…  Oh Well.

Tomorrow is Zoom…. Zoom, Zoom,  Zoom……


Day3 – Photo A Day May (Glass)

It’s getting pretty hot here in Southern California but the mornings have been awesome.  The early morning and late afternoon sun sets the stage perfectly for my Glass picture.  Bonus points if you can tell me what the bottles were in their previous life.





















Tomorrow is Black and White… that leaves it pretty wide open.  We will have to see :)



Bonus Pics:  I had a little friend visit while I was shooting.  I think he was thirsty.

















Day 2 – Photo A Day May (Bold Color)

So todays Challenge was Bold color.  One of the things I love about my house is the back yard.  It is fully stocked and spring just makes everything come alive.  This is one of the bogonvias we have in the backyard with the morning sun hitting it.  I hope it does it justice because it looks great in person.















Tomorrows picture is Glass… hmmmm not sure what I am going to do for that.


Day 1 – Photo A Day May (Yourself)











I know, not very inventive but at least I started.  I am not sure if I look angry or tired… or a little of both.

I am looking forward to tomorrows picture which is Bold Color.





Being a developer evangelist is a  fun filled and action packed job.  It takes me to new places and forces me to learn new things.  That is one of the best parts of my job, is learning new things, but it also keeps me very busy.  A few months back someone asked me what I did with my time when I was not working, or what were my hobbies?   It was interesting because I am in this profession (Software development) because I love it.  I live and breathe it, so I had to think about that for a few minutes because I realized I really was not giving myself time for my hobbies.   Besides spending time with my family, there are really things I like to do, and many of you I am sure are unaware of what they are.  Gardening (Vegetables) and Photography.

I have been wanting to spend more time with my camera ( A Cannon 60D) and so I thought I would take up the challenge that is set forth in A Photo A Day May.  Its simple, a photo a day for every day in march.  If you do a search for this you will find many lists that have been put together to help guide you (Although you don’t have to use these).  I selected the one you see here on the left.  So I will be posting one picture a day here (and probablly Facebook, Flickr, and Pinterest) for every day in month.  Wish me luck.  I dont think it is easy as it sounds. :)
