May 13th - 15th 2005 I
took a train trip up the coast of California from Irvine
to San Luis Obispo. These pictures are of my trip out,
there and back. I used this opportunity to play with my
camera. You will notice that I am addicted to depth, texture,
lines, and angles. There are repetitive images but I couldn't
come to the decision of which I liked best. If you have
any feedback, comments or questions about my pictures
feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ride up from Irvine to San Luis Obispo - 5/13/05
One of our many stops waiting
for stations to rearrange

How bumpy the train was
Grover Beach -
My new hat and the beach
A scene my sister was going
to paint. I was showing her how to crop the image in her
I loved this piece of drift
wood as you can tell
I just liked this lone
flower in with the greenery
Another pretty sand flower
Brother and sister playing
in the water. I really liked how this one turned out.
Level to the waves
Shallow rippling water
shallow still water
I might have to edit this
in adobe. Allowing the railing to be larger to give the
impression that 1/2 is blue and the other half is tan
without the greenery in the middle breaking it up. hmmm...
Looks edited to me. But
hey it was worth a shot :)
Not sure which one I liked
Liked the focus on this
This is a different setting
on my digital camera. I am intrigued by the coloring difference.
Ok so this is one of my
I loved this winding path.
I took two shots but this ones composition turned out
the best. It gives more distance then the other shot.
lines and focus :)
Not sure if I like the
way this turned out. But I liked the concept I was trying
A bird singing
Golf course on the east
side of my path with the beach on the other! What a way
The coloring on some of
my pictures is really unnatural. I didn't want to mess
with the original images too much so I left them.
The picture my sister was
painting while I was exploring the beach taking pictures.
She couldn't finish so I had to take the picture so she
could go home and finish it up.
I liked how the seaweed
broke up the texture
laying on the ground. Not
sure that I was able to capture the depth.
Trip back to the
Rose Garden Inn - 5/14/05
A cool farm
And since I had the cowgirl
hat on we figured I'd have to get a picture with it in

Checking tickets - I decided
I should take a picture of him working "Doing a real
man's job" as he put it.
This guy loved his job!
He would randomly go onto the intercom and start singing
made up songs. :)
My only picture taken with
different color settings. I normally feel to take all
my pictures in color and I can modify the coloring in
