new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

jupiter and its moons

jupiter and its moons

up on lycabettus hill on sunday, the night was getting darker and my sights started to wander to other bits of the view than the acropolis. it was then that jonathan shock offered to lend me his 300mm lens to try and capture jupiter.

well, i jumped at the chance and was thrilled to get a shot of the planet and its moons! (the second shot on this post)

jupiter and its moons - 300 mm lens

that whet my appetite and on monday night, i mounted my little white on the 40D, set it on a tripod, hooked it up to the computer and started EOS utility's remote live view. i got the top shot with this setup, which is not too shabby.
