My outdoor mecca

Blogged in The Woodwork: My outdoor mecca


My outdoor mecca

REI, Mountain View, California


Nikon D70, Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-4.5G VR

DxO (exp, blur, distorion, ca, vignette. noise, lighting) Photoshop (CHLomo) Aperture (straighten, crop)

1/350 sec @ f/9.5, iso 200, 18mm (27mm)



Around town with my new lens.


A two-story REI within walking distance of my home? I have reached nirvanna. All three buildings are parts of the same building.


I can’t wait until the day I don’t have to drive down to Saratoga to gear up.


When I took the shot I tried to place it head on knowing I would crop it in post. This way I didn’t get any keystoning. DxO did an amazing job on the distortions so I’m happy. Just for effect, I lomo'd it.
