A Haze Toward the Night

In The Yard – ITY41

Technically it is more from the yard than in the yard but I’ll keep it with this series. Last night between the raindrops I ventured outside in an attempt to grab some images of the fog settling in after sunset. At least I’ll assume after sunset since there was no visible sky… 🙂

Floaties

Aquarium of the Pacific
Long Beach, CA

Whenever I travel to California for business I try not to waste too much of the company’s time. I also do not want to be rushed in what I have to do so I try to plan for the best case with a little cushion on the side. Some times it works out in my favor and some times I end up working until the last possible moment. The last couple of times it has worked in my favor (so maybe I need to rethink my calculation).

On my previous trip my “extra” time afforded me the opportunity to visit the Griffith Observatory. By the way, it is a must see location if you find yourself in the LA area. On the trip I took last week I ended up in Long Beach. There was no clear objective other than to see the ocean, check out a very busy port, maybe see the Queen Mary and the Spruce Goose (BTW, no longer in Long Beach. I should have Googled it!). I didn’t know about the Aquarium of the Pacific! I only regret that it was under construction. When it is complete, I will have to make the effort to visit again!

Once again I found myself in a great location without my trusty camera. This has really started me to think I need to invest in a good, small travel camera. Something I can fit in a pocket but still lets me take images the way I have learned how to do with my trusty companion camera. 🙂

Anyway, my phone (a Google Pixel) does a fairly good job in the picture department but I think I pushed it to the limit with these indoor, low light pictures. I have more to process but the variety of jelly fish absolutely fascinated me. These five turned out the best. I wish I had been smart enough to grab a picture of each of their names. For now, I hope you will be satisfied with the pictures…

Bellamy in Orange

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

After spending a few days in California for work (without my camera) I needed to get my photography fix on. Saturday morning was looking like I might be able to find a sunrise. Even though Mother Nature has been teasing us with Spring it was still only 30 degrees out by the time the sun was suppose to debut. I headed over to Bellamy Harbor Park in Rome to get a glimpse of the morning color. I was not disappointed. Here is Bellamy in Orange

Queen Mary

Long Beach, CA

Finished with work a little early at a supplier in California on Thursday. Headed down to Long Beach to look around. I was able to get over to see the Queen Mary up close and personal. I wasn’t sure if I needed the tour but being that close to the ship was pretty darn cool. The sub next to the Queen Mary is a Soviet sub which patrolled the Pacific for 22 years during the Cold War.
