on high

Been having trouble with the autofocus on the 50mm lens I've newly been using.  Trying it out now on manual , which makes more sense in my head.  Haven't been in the most photographic circumstances, so I am still testing things out.
It was a gloomy evening, grey clouds heavy with rain, cold skies.  Took a few shots without checking any images to determine whether my exposure was any good... and it wasn't.  The shots were just plain underexposed.  Added enough contrast in PP that I brought up a bit of something, but I was way off.  Had the fstop at 14 for a couple, and maybe would've been fine at f8.  Could've upped the iso from 200, but I don't often mess with that.  Speed was as slow as I could get it (1/60) and still be ok handheld.

"marathon route"

color under grey skies

Just images taken from the window.  Some leaves have changed, some remain green.  I like the colors of the private houses.
Depending on the skies, I will go to the roof soon, and hopefully shoot the bridge at sunset.  So many contraptions (mobile phone crap) on the roof that it is hard to navigate.


  1. this looks great. And, grey days often enhances the colors. :)

  2. it sounds like you are learning photography in a way well beyond my point and shoot. but i understand too how great it is to have a camera

    i hope you are feeling and doing well.


  3. From this perspective you have a wonderful far view. And it is interesting point of view - also that the autumn is coloring the trees. The autumn-colored points between the grey houses are wonderful.
    Happy Halloween!

  4. Always good to take a new perspective. Nice pictures.
