Snapshot Saturday: Broken Glass

We continue our adventure with Snapshot Saturday. I share some of my best photos I’ve taken with my Canon Rebel T7i camera. And you all like the posts and maybe comment how much you like the photos. Or offer to buy many prints of them and I become rich and famous. But I digress. To view more photos I’ve taken over the years, visit the Photography Page. If you have questions, feel free to comment or send me a message through the Contact Page.

Broken Glass. Mar 2020. f/10. 1/200. 18mm.

This photo is from downtown Tucson, AZ. One of the storefronts had a broken window. This was a couple months before the riots that happened in downtown Tucson. It may have been cause from an accident or vandals, who knows? I used the grayscale setting on the camera and the standard 18mm-55mm lens that came with the camera at purchase. The cracks gave a really nice effect with the reflection in the window. This was a few days before quarantine officially started.

Snapshot Saturday: Almost Forest

Welcome to another Snapshot Saturday. I have many photos to feature on these Saturdays and these are just the ones I think are the best. There are so many more photos beyond that which are still good. But I don’t think they’re as amazing as the ones I’m featuring first. Also, over the next year, I’m sure I’ll take many more photos and have even more to add to my best shots. It’s a fun relaxing hobby. Don’t forget to visit the Photography Page to see more of my photos.

Almost Forest. Mar 2020. f/10. 1/200. 35mm.

This photos is a set of palm trees in Tucson, AZ on the campus of The University of Arizona. As you can see, I used the grayscale feature on my Canon Rebel T7i camera. I used the standard 18mm-55mm lens that came with the camera at purchase. It was a nice relaxing day just before quarantine started in 2020. It would be another couple days before all my scheduled work would be canceled until early May. Good times. This is one of my favorite shots because of the repetition of the palm trees. It’s as if they were planted to be viewed from this angle.

Coffee and Contemplation: World Tourism Day

Today is World Tourism Day. Today is also my birthday. I decided to take a trip to the Grand Canyon for my birthday weekend. The Grand Canyon National Park was free to enter yesterday, September 26. I spent the last couple nights in Williams, AZ about an hour South of the Grand Canyon on historic Route 66. I was told I had been to the canyon when I was young but have no memory of that trip.

This was a fun adventure for me as I’ve never done much for myself on my birthday. I had a nice little road trip. I explored some new places. And I got some great pictures. I’ve shared a few of them below. If you’ve never been, I recommend seeing the Grand Canyon at least once in your life. And all the towns nearby are fun to explore too. For any of you wondering, I turn 34 today. I hope to have another fun adventure next year.
