I'm traveling! See the latest at!

I recently bought a new camera because I needed something high-quality and ultra-compact/lightweight.  Too many times, I found myself lamenting that I had only the dismal quality of my phone to capture a truly remarkable sight.  I’d occasionally grab my big camera when the clouds promised a colorful sunrise, but it was a heavy risk that didn’t always pay off.  This little camera can now live in my backpack – I won’t notice the negligible weight – and I’ll no longer have to pretend my phone is simply a DSLR that hasn’t grown up yet.

Most of these such moments happen during my beautiful morning commutes.  I walk to work, and I deliberately add miles (yes, miles) to my route to enjoy this gorgeous city in which I find myself (and to meet my sister’s step challenge of 2016 miles in 2016).  Add to these pleasant walks a now near-implanted camera at my hip, and you can be sure I’ll be late to work on occasion.

Last week, I participated in the Digital Photography School’s weekly photo challenge, “Round and Round.”  I wish that theme had been one week later, as I came across this fun spot along my route this week.

Underneath the new Tilikum Bridge, there is a curved alcove in the wall, lined with thousands of these reflective disks.  I have a wild fascination with reflections (which I’ll likely share in a later post), so this tickles my trigger finger to no end, particularly up close.

And the best part: I had a far better camera with which to capture it.
