For the past number of years I have attended a 1 day seminar at this location and I have always been impressed with the lines in the conference room section of this campus. The campus belongs to one of the large churches in South Florida.
Since our vacation in Seattle, I have found myself drawn to black and white images, whether it is street, architectural or people. Today I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and go for images that are really a lot more edgy than I would normally do. I tried to incorporate lights and darks, as well as grains and blurs.
I hope that you enjoy my 30 Minutes in the life this month.

When I was in San Francisco I really wanted to go to Chinatown and that did not happen. So before we even got on the airplane I voiced that the one thing I wanted to do was go to Chinatown. We walked from our hotel the Chinatown. It was probably a 20 minute walk from the city center, but I was happy to do it knowing that I was going to the one place I had wanted to go. Did Chinatown live up to my expectations – yes and no. I guess I expected to see more Chinese monuments and buildings and statues etc. I felt like I was stepping into a different part of Seattle. The streets seemed less tidy, the buildings a little grey. There were so many overhead tram cables that it made it really hard to get a clean image without some kind of power line in it. On the flip side there was the beautiful entrance into Chinatown, there was the dragons that are so synonymous with Chinese culture. The people that we passed smiled and hurried on. I found myself wanting more but at the same time enjoying what I was seeing…. Meander with me.
After walking around Chinatown it was time to head back to the hotel. I have to be honest I really enjoyed walking to and around Chinatown but the thought of walking all the way back again had more poor feet complaining. However, you do what you have to do and enjoy it while you can.

This months topic, Green, was chosen by Brandi Hansen. Late last year I purchased a Lensbaby. I fell in love with the way it blurs images. I have had a lot of fun with the sweet 35 optic and in fact recently won a competition on Lensbaby.com under the category Travel with my image of the Space Needle in Seattle. As you can imagine I was thrilled. Over the months I have looked at the effects of the different optics and the one that I was looking at was the Soft Focus Optic.
Today I chose to shoot with my new Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic and my Macro 100mm 2:8L lens. I hope you enjoy my take on Green.
