Spring Barrow by Mike-Hope

Hi All,

Since spring is officially here I thought I’d take a walk around the South Bay Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes and check out the wonderful botanical offerings that are on display. What a superb place to spend a leisurely afternoon. The dedicated volunteers and regular staff put so much effort into what is a virtual paradise in amongst the hustle and bustle…

Spring Barrow by Mike-Hope

…just a few hundred yards away.  You actually feel you’re way out in the country with a mixture of exotic plants from palms to pines and flowers and shrubs galore. I’d highly recommend you give it a visit if you are in the area. I spotted another photographer taking a shot of this wheel barrow and commented on what a great shot it would make. I came back later at the end of my walk and grabbed this shot. I really like it!  I hope you do too, it’s a real spring reminder.

Thanks for taking a look,

Sun-up at the Grand Canyon

As I mentioned the Grand Canyon in my last post I thought I’d upload a picture I took from the rim early one morning just as the sun was rising (sounds like a song coming on). I am just getting the feel for some slow shutter speed work, long exsposure and bracketing. This was pretty low light and zoomed using the 24mm – 105mm Canon L series.  I took three shots at different exposures and then overlayed in post to give it dimension. I will keep practicing and the next shoot will be down by the ocean at Abalone Cove.

Canon EOS-M Dr. Stranglelove – Mike Hope

Hi All,

I thought you might find this photo interesting. I took this at the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at LACMA in Los Angeles. This was taken into a small model of the command Center for the Dr. Strangelove movie. I took this hand held with the Canon EOS-M, 22mm lens, in very low light with no IS.  Slight Lightroom adjustment to bring out the maps.  So far I am having fun with the camera!!
