Wow, a month since my last post. I’ve been slacking.
Most of my free time these days is taken up by photography. Most of that time has been spent at Goleta Beach Park, shooting birds in the Goleta Slough. I got a new lens (300mm f/4L IS) about a month and a half ago, along with the 1.4x extender, and have been having a great time with them. Since last Sunday, I was out there 5 days, for a total of probably around 18 hours. I can sit out there all day with my camera.
I also got another cool toy for my camera: Sony GPS-CS1. I have it attached to my camera strap, and turn it on when I go out shooting. It logs my location every 15 seconds. Then, when I copy the images to my computer, Downloader Pro automatically syncs up the times of the images with the data from the GPS, and tags the images with locations. When I upload to flickr, it automatically uses that information and shows the location, with a “View Map” button to see where it was taken. It’s a fun little toy.
Tomorrow night, I head out to Vegas until Monday, and my camera isn’t coming with me. To any poker bloggers going, see you there!
