Mist Caught In The Spider Web – Project 365

After watering the flowers and misting our cacti, I notices the mist that was caught within the spider web. Because of the dark shade I started the with ISO 1000 for first two photos. However, the exposure values were rather slow, so the last two were taken with ISO 2000. BTW, I used my Tamron […]

Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica) – Project 365

Yesterday I mention that many review suggest to use the Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 also for landscape and portrait photography because of its sharpness and none distortion. So today I gave it a try by taking some photos of our Heavenly Bamboo which now in bloom.

CA HWY #4 Construction Update – Project 365

Time to do my monthly check up on the construction on CA State Highway 4. The work on both overpasses, A Street to the East and L Street to the West, is slowing progressing. That work was started rather late and is the reason for the bottlenecks, causing delays in the rush hour. I used […]

640 West 2nd Street – Project 365

Here is another building downtown Antioch on West 2nd Street that I like. When we first moved here in 1990, this was a Hobby Store, as in Model Trains, airplanes and ships. It closed a few years later thanks to Toys R Us. Other businesses moved in, but now it is empty. I like the […]

More Flowers Blooming – Project 365

These photos were taken in our backyard. The first set of four are our white violets, not sure of the exact correct name. The second set is of our Jasmine Vine, which for the last 20 years has provided us with joy during this time of the year.

714 West 2nd Street – Project 365

There is no historic data on this building downtown Antioch, however it is one of the better looking old buildings, having some very interesting and well preserved decorative architectural features. I wish I knew the exact terms for those features, I just love the type of crown molding millwork and that top centerpiece.
