It is Sunday, March 25. On March 24, I had eight members on my page. Today I have seven. With so few it is easy to notice a change. Such is life.
And by the way, I will photograph practically anything I can – with no regrets. So we have arrived in 2011. January 4th to be exact. I was out and about in Fontana (where we were living at the time) taking in the view. We live in a paradise like environment but it’s difficult to recognize it when you’re hustling to make sure you and your family can eat. But I wanted to capture it just the same.
I was using my “drive by” camera, my PowerShot A540, when I was doing this. If you were me that day, you would be looking north towards the San Gabriel Mountains at Mt. Baldy from a parking lot off of Foothill Blvd in Fontana, CA. I had the shooting mode on “Kids&Pets” – I haven’t a clue why. The camera set the shutter speed at 1/250 and the aperture at F-8. The focal length was 15.8mm. I wonder, does this kind of photographic data matter?
This photo was shot in “Landscape” mode. And I was at a light heading east on Foothill looking at the San Bernardino Mountains (Mt. San Gorgonio to be specific – I think). California State University, San Bernardino, sits at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains – right along the San Andreas Fault which is why the mountains are here in the first place. I don’t know, but that’s more interesting than shutter speed and F-stops. But I was hustling that day and took the moment to capture this scene because I know I would not remember it years later.
