Photo: Blueberry season

BEST thing I like: I love the colour of the blueberries (it's really blue and not purple) and the frosting on the foremost scoop of ice cream.

Camera: Canon 350D with 50 1.4

What I like LEAST: I don't like the look of that second scoop of ice cream in the back which fell on its side and caused the mint leaf to fall slightly out of place as well.

Blueberry ice cream, tartelette aux myrtilles and tartelette aux framboises :)
Wild blueberries from the forest, very tasty, cannot even be compared to those cultivated blueberries which are of course much bigger but taste like water :S
Raspberries from my garden :P

This was part of my breakfast on wednesday.

Photo: Marching ants

BEST thing I like: The sense of scale with the human figures.

Camera: Nikon D200 with the 50mm 1.4D

What I like LEAST: I wish this were a sharper shot with more detail. It is heavily cropped since it was shot at 50mm and quite a distance.

BEST thing I like: The timing was good, a rain storm had just blown past and I was able to catch the steam rising.

Camera: Nikon D80

What I like LEAST: There was some trash on my lens and it shows on one of the limbs just above the base on the center limb.

Week #131: 06/05

Photo: Shinto bride 1: tsuno-kakushi

BEST thing I like: It is a candid shot, straight from the camera and I love how it captures the serenity and elegance of the bride.

Camera: Canon 40d.

What I like LEAST: I should have cropped it a fraction to get rid of the little space in the bottom left corner - it bugs me!!

A picture of serenity, this lady had just been married at a shinto ceremony in Meiji Shrine, Tokyo, and was waiting patiently for the wedding photography to commence. Her hood is called the tsuno-kakushi hood and translates literally as “hiding the horns”...

Taken handheld, leaning on a nearby tree!

Photo: Looking Up

BEST thing I like: I love the clarity in the focus, with the contrasting bokeh in the background.

Camera: Canon EOS 400D with 50mm f1.4 lens

What I like LEAST: I haven't been able to recreate a picture of this quality since. The white balance could also do with a tweak.


Becks looking up at the fireworks going off around the edge of the Grande Place in Brussels at the new year.

As some people have pointed out the main fireworks were cancelled this year due to a terrorist threat, which was a real shame. Becks is actually looking at fireworks being launched by members of the public from around the edge, where there was less police.
