Day 205

ISO 100, 24mm, f/14, 1/3 sec.

Day 205 - Amused

Today was Scott Kelby's 3rd Annual Photowalk. Our chosen destination was The Oaks Amusement Park in Portland. Our fearless leaders were Laurie Excell and Sharon O'Keefe.

Despite the 2 am wake-up call, we had a great time, the weather was beautiful, the mosquitoes fierce and we even caught a few twinkling lights before the sun was too bright.

ISO 320, 73mm, f/4.0, 1/40 sec.

Daily Shoot: Skyline Vs. Shoreline

The Daily Shoot: Make a photo that uses negative space to good effect. Give your subject room to breathe, and balance it within the frame.

We arrived early this morning and popped down to the river front before anyone else got there. I walked out on the dock and was a little surprised at how much that puppy was moving. Good thing I don't get seasick.

This is on the Willamette River just north of the Sellwood Bridge over looking the Portland skyline.
