And yes, you can click the link to see the Exif. But let me save you one click.  This is with the Olympus 75mm f/1.8.  Shot wide open.  I love that lens.

I know, I know. I promised more Yosemite. And then what?

Ok, turns out over the Memorial Day weekend, I attended Derrick Story’s San Francisco Street Photography workshop. Street photography is hard. Finding subject matter is challenging and there’s definitely an element of luck. And not getting waved away (like by the couple eating the bananas in perfect unison). Anyway, I liked the workshop a lot. Great people attending. And Derrick is a tremendous workshop leader. A good time.

And the special bonus is I got some shots I really liked.

This one is from Union Square.  I love the expressions. And it feels to me like a scene from an Italian square.

Earlier this spring, before the trip to Hawaii to swim with the fishes, I heard a report on the radio that the wildflowers were in bloom up in Yosemite. So I took off to see them. And in organizing a little photo expedition with someone with some local knowledge I learned what you’re going to see in the next few photos. Yosemite is spectacular at this time of year. But wildflowers? Umm, no. Stay tuned though. Because I did find some. Just not in the park.

This is Yosemite Falls.  I stayed at The Lodge at the Falls which isn’t fancy.  But it does have a pretty nice view (see below).  It was definitely still cold at night and in the morning.  That white stuff by the side of the falls?  Ice.  Cracks off from time to time and makes quite a noise.

More to come.
