My attempts on using a Lomo

| No Comments
Lomo_thumb.jpgI got me a Lomo camera a little while ago. It is equipped with a fish-eye lens and uses real film!

I had the film developed at Tempe Camera and they did a great job with the prints and scanning to CD.

Some shots came out real nice with my favorite one to the left. No Photoshop used! Check out more in my gallery.

Rodin at the LACMA

At the Los Angeles County Museum of Art some sculptures by Rodin.

The outdoor exhibition is presented in a well structured garden setting with palm trees.

At certain angles you can view the sculptures contrasted by a modern industrial background.

You can find more pictures in my gallery.

There are several museums, one, the George C. Page museum featuring a tar pit where asphalt was mined in the 19th century.

The museum features Los Angeles as it was between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age.

You can find the pictures in my gallery.

The beaches in California are just awesome so check out some pictures in my gallery.

A nickel worth of rain...

nickel.pngWith the monsoon coming to an end here's what happened:

The rainfall from June 15 to September 30 officially totaled 0.87 of an inch, that's about the size of a nickel.

The data was reported from Phoenix Sky Harbor airport.

During the same time period we had about 1.57 in. (little less than the height of the figure) of rain in Tempe.
