I played around with this image. I was trying to figure out how to add more light on the label without having a reflection on the bottle.  Mmmm.... Suggestion anyone?

Sather Tower

Sather Tower(bell and clock tower) is located on the University of California, Berkeley campus. It is the University most recognizable symbol. It is more commonly known as The Campanile due to its resemblance to the Campanile di San Marco in Venice

Action Figure

I step on this little guy tonight.  Very painful.  I don't know who he is, but he almost ended up in the recycle bin

Two days ago while out on my walk, I went to take a picture with my P&S  and it would not click.    At first I thought it was the batteries, so I install fresh ones, still nothing.  I googled  the problem and tried a few possible solutions, still nothing.  Well I remove the batteries put it back in it's case and forgot about it.  Today I came home and decided to try one more time.  Installed fresh batteries, press the power button,  Tah Dah!  Presto it works.  Took several shots, all good.  Not sure what happen, but I'm glad it's working,  I did not feel researching a replacement.

Last of the Fall Colors

Taken with my Blackberry. I think I may do a series of blackberry images.

I passed by this window while out on my walk today.  The contrast between the lines in the window and the house shingles were interesting. Taken with my Blackberry.

Trying to stay warm

I spotted  this little guy on railing while out on my walk.  Although it was sunny today, the temperature was in the 40's and it was chilly.  He kept moving into the sunlight as the sun was setting.  I shot this with my P&S at ISO 400, the noise is terrible.

The Story of Buddy

This is a picture of Buddy.  Now you may be thinking to yourself "Just a picture of a squirrel"    But you see Buddy is not your average squirrel. Sure he will come near you when he wants some nuts or acorns as most squirrels do, but Buddy acts more like a dog or cat.  He comes to the office door everyday between 12 noon and 12:15 and he's always on time.   In this picture Buddy is peering through the glass door looking for Loretta, our office manager because she has not given him his treat for the day. She’s late and he's not happy.  After waiting a few minutes he jumps down on ground puts his face against the glass. He will then scratch the glass the get your attention.  If you go to the door he will wait as if saying “where’s my treat?”  I wanted to take a picture of him with his face against the glass, but by the time I went got my P&S he had jump back  on the ledge.  When she finally takes him his treat he gets all happy and follows her to where she put his treat, all the while he's making that chattering noise.  Now Buddy is a somewhat selfish squirrel.  He will not share with his friends. He chases them away if they come anywhere near the office door.  He sits there and eats his food and no matter who passes by,  he does not move until he's finish.   Short  video to follow.
