Every time that I get the feeling that I should take my camera somewhere I need to listen to that feeling. Tonight I was going outside to take out the trash and I thought, I should be taking my camera too. I didn’t and as I walked around the corner perched on a dying sunflower was a goldfinch. It was beautiful, a bright splash of yellow on a fading flower. So I took a mental picture of it and filed it away for next time I get that urge to take my camera with me, anywhere.
|I went back out with the recycling and was hoping against hope that the goldfinch was back pecking away at the sunflowers. It was not there. I decided to walk around a little and find something else to shoot. I was looking for color, lots of color but it has been so hot and dry (well it has been humid) here and many flowers were dead. So, instead of color I decided to go for a more monotone look and play again with the Depth of Field. I’ve been using the Manual Focus much more lately. Many times the autofocus jumps to something else that I did not intend to focus on. With the manual focus I have better control.||
I took this second photo and this had a little more color.

Last night I started reading Attention! This Book Will Make You Money: How to Use Attention-Getting Online Marketing to Increase Your Revenue (Aff Link) from Jim Kukral. I made it through 22 of the chapters and I am eager for more but sleep was needed. I should be able to finish the book by this weekend when I record Geek Dads Weekly this Sunday night with Daniel M. Clark. We may even have a special guest… who knows.
Speaking of special guests we are interested in getting more guests on the show. We’re looking for other Geek Dads to chat with us. If you are interested then drop a message on our contact page.
