24 Jul Photo a Day Challenge #25-30
These are the final few photos from my 30 day photo challenge. It ended up being a great experience even if the photos weren’t all that good. Got me to go off the beaten path a few times.
Photo #25 (Pop the Top)
This is another experimental shot using the panoramic setting on my iPhone. I was biking to work, and I pointed it up at the sky and just took a shot. It came out much more interesting than I thought it would.
Photo #26 (Texture)
This was taken on the same ride as the photo above (as I mentioned before, I forgot to take a photo on a couple of days and doubled up on others). I used the same technique but pointed the camera down in panoramic mode. What you’re looking at are parts of the bike path, the road, my spokes, and possibly my fingers? I think this one looks like it could be an album cover.
Photo #27 (CDs)
I’ve been re-designing my own web site lately, and I needed a photo of my CDs for the slide show that will be on the home page. I decided that this was a good use of the photo-a-day project. This is also an indication that maybe I do need a digital SLR camera since I’m taking useful photos like this quite a bit, and the iPhone just isn’t as good.
Photo #28 (Hidden)
Riding up the Santa Fe trail, I’ve always seen graffiti under the road near Criterium bike shop and have wondered what it was like under there. Now I know! I hiked my bike down to this area which has 2 long “caverns” connected by a series of openings. The skaters and BMXers have actually built a series of rails and ramps down there as well as an area to work on their equipment. But as you can see there’s also a bunch of trash. I don’t think I’d have ever gone here if if weren’t for this project.
Photo #29 (Red Rock Open Space)
Further proof that I need better equipment and/or better technique for capturing landscapes. I swear this was a really cool view from up on the ridge. You can see the quarry and even garden of the Gods in the background. Oh well.
Photo #30 (Running Out Of Time)
It was the last day of my project, and I just snapped a shot of the clocks at work. Each room is named for a Olympic host city and has clocks for Colorado Springs and the host city. I’m in the Melbourne room. This shot is from the Lillehammer room …which is much cooler sounding.
