365 Challenge – 9, 10, and 11 November 2009

I have been very busy at work and with a couple of sick kids at home and so I did not make the time to keep up my posts.  I did keep up with the camera work, manual reading, an viewing of other photographers’ work.  But it’s all in one post for the past few days.

Cloudy Day in Eagle Harbor

Monday, November 9th I was in Winslow and noticed a small but of sun creeping out from what had been a very rainy day.  I’ve photographed the old ferry “Olympic” dozens of times, but it’s like old cars I just love the look.  And the way it was catching the little bit of light…

Manual: Pages 277-278 on setting custom metering modes, specifically custom center-weighted metering.

Inspiration:  Online galleries of Joe McNally.  Amazing shots using multiple speedlights, etc.

Foggy Morning, Keyport Pier

Tuesday, November 10th.  True Pacific Northwest fall weather.  Foggy morning.  Took a walk about 8:30 to shake out the cobwebs before out weekly and grabbed this shot of Keyport’s service tug in the morning fog.

Manual: Page 275 on EV Exposure control settings.

Inspiration:  Grabbed this months copy of Shutterbug

Humble Hero

Wednesday, November 11, 2009  Veteran’s Day.  The man in the photo above is Mr. Thomas Kinnsman.  Mr. Kinsman joined the Army from Seattle, Washington, and by February 6, 1968 was serving as a private first class in Company B, 3rd Battalion, 60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division. During a firefight on that day, near Vinh Long in the Republic of Vietnam, Kinsman blocked a grenade blast with his body to protect those around him, suffering severe wounds in the process. He recovered from his wounds and was promoted to specialist fourth class and awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions.  Mr. Kinnsman was one of 16 Medal of Honor recipients attending the University of Washington’s Dedication of a memorial monument in honor of the eight recipients associated with the school.

Inspiration:  Read chapter 5 of David duChemin’s Within the frame.  Also listened to Scott Bourne’s Photofocus podcast with David duChemin cohosting.
