Vacation --> Inspiration
Lens: DA35 Limited Camera: K-x 
Posted By: nate_b, 03-26-2012, 11:16 PM

I am currently a few days into a much needed vacation with the family and loving every minute of it. This welcome liberation from the daily grind has also meant liberation from the camera bag for my K-x and DA35 Limited. Vacation has led to inspiration, and inspiration to photos. While I am by no means claiming these photos are inspired (all of them were taken on family outings with the kids in tow), I am happy to say that I have been inspired to shoot again. For me, that is cause for celebration in and of itself:

[See Through]



[Together]



[Look at Me]



[Look at You]



[NO DIVING]



[Francisco's]



[Swirl]



[Flake and Bubble]



[Stain]



[Walk This Way]



[Retro Rimrocks]



[Colorful Cone]



[Bedazzled]



[The Rack]



[7]



[Cactus Canvas]



[The Shadow Line]

Like your "eye" for subjects.

"No diving" and "Flake and bubble" are my favorites in this excellent series. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice color on "together" and nice composition/juxtaposition on "look at you".

Wow... excellent series. I loved each and every shot... great perspective, very inspiring I just love the first shot, and also the peeling paint and the stain shots, number seven and the shadow line ... well, they are all really good and very interesting...I never would have thought of photographing a rack of colourful clothes and it works wonderfully.

Thank you, Den. The DA35 Limited and its close focus/macro capability definitely helps me "see" subjects and compositions I wouldn't with other lenses. It is a superb multi-purpose tool.
