Week 5 Photo 150 Shots -- Theme: Fauna (mostly birds)

I didn't spend a lot of time on my project this week. Headed to the beach to catch some seagulls in flight. I love how they glide around. Shot with my Sony A77ii with Tamron 200-500. That first shot is in color too ... slightly overcast skies, backlit.







And for my archive shot, here is one from 2009, an opossum that showed up in our yard. An easy shot to take since these guys literally play dead and hold still This was taken with my Sony A700 with Tamron 70-200.

Damn, here I thought you were more of an "urban" photographer and you bust out all these great nature shots. +1 on the possum!

Thanks, Eddy! I call myself a "family photojournalist" so I'm very flexible with the types of shots I take. I'm bad with studio/flash setups though ... never got into it. Maybe I'll challenge myself and do still life/product/studio shots.

Here are my shots for Week 6. This week's theme -- boats. I'll give you a flavor of the ships you find around LA, pleasure and industry.

Sailboat on Santa Monica Bay

Sony A77ii + Tamron 200-500

Container Ship Gridlock at LA Harbor

Sony A77ii + Tamron 200-500

Konica-Minolta 5D at 50mm ... not sure what lens ... SOOC!

Yeah, Eddy, San Pedro. It's close by, but maybe a 20-30 minute drive to get there. LA surface streets, LOL.

Nice moody views Art, I especially like the first with the very vague mountains on the horizon and the diagonal composition

Thanks, @pegelli. That is Catalina Island in the distance in that first shot, about 25 miles off the coast here.

Week 8 Theme: Neon ...I was originally planning to go planespotting, but with limited time, ended up doing some neon shots. Maybe I can find some planes this coming week. I can't believe we're moving through the weeks so quickly!

Portillo's Hot Dogs (Buena Park, CA) -- a southern California outpost of the Chicago-area chain. Excellent Chicago-style hotdogs here. Converted to monochrome.

Sony A6400 with Sony 16-70

Lighthouse Cafe (Hermosa Beach, CA) -- as seen in the movie La La Land

Sony A6400 with Sony 16-70

Archive: Scanned Slide from ~1984 at the Neon Museum here in LA. The Olympics were in town that year here in Los Angeles

Minolta XE-7 with my Rokkor 50 1.4

That hot dog place is a really cool shot, very much film noir.

Week 9 theme, planes! I headed up to the world famous In-N-Out Burger location that is near Los Angeles International Airport to do a little planespotting this week. Here are two shots of an Alaska Horizon regional jet on approach to LAX. It's amazing how different the images look given that the shots were taken just a few seconds apart. I used my Sony A77ii and Tamron 200-500 for these.





My archive shot is from September 2012, not quite 10 years ago (my archive shot is supposed to be > 10), when space shuttle Endeavour was touring southern California, mounted on the special NASA 747 cargo plane, with NASA chase plane. I can't remember if I ever shared this image here before. I probably used my Sony A700 and my Tamron 200-500 also.



Next week, Week 10, I plan on using on my fisheye adapted 16mm E-mount pancake, 10mm equivalent.

The Space shuttle was an epic event. Reminds me of the 84 olympics when it felt like everyone was watching it.

Great Shot! I failed to get a shot cause work and stuff.
