Bench of the Week #8, Sage Chapel Cornell University

This bench is outside of Sage Chapel at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.  It's a great place to sit and relax and meditate.  I find it very peaceful.

I hope you enjoy.

Evening of Music

We went to some friends house for a party in their Pub.  He has lots of musical equipment, and some very talented friends.

We had an evening of great food, wonderful music, and a little wine.  It's great to see them all again.

The pub has very dark red walls, and the lighting is very subdued.  It's difficult to take photos without a flash.  I used my f1.8 lens, and this seemed to work for this photo.  I thought it lended itself well to Monochrome.  I hope you like it.

We like to call this one, "The 6th Beatle".

Photo details: Exposure time 1/80, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 1600, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 81mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, hand held.
This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Weekly

Reflection of Fall Colors

We have had a week of rain here in Central New York, but today the Sun, and blue sky were out.  And so were the fall colors.

I stopped by a pond in the late evening and was able to catch this photo with the beautiful fall colors reflecting off the water.

I also had a very pleasant surprise of being able to photograph a beaver as it swam around the pond.  I hope to do something special with those photos.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/40 sec, Aperture f/9.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 75 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 121mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.
