Neighborhood House Fire

Image
There was  house fire in my neighborhood this evening, apparently there were no injuries.  This shot shows just a few of the Mountain House and Tracy, CA fire trucks that responded to the call. 

In my hurry to leave the house I put on my 18-55mm kit lens thinking that I would be far away and would need to zoom.  During the time I was taking photos it got dark and having my 50mm f/1.8  lens would have given me much clearer shots.  I took several photos directly across from the house however they are mostly blurry because the shutter had to be open for so long.

Photo Challenge: Spring Green

Image
Time for another challenge at Project 64: Out of the Box.  Each week a random crayon is chosen from a 64 count box of Crayola Crayons.  That color is used as inspiration for the week, the challenge is to find and photograph the weekly color in the world around us. This week the color is Spring Green.
There color is everywhere!  I took the first two photos at Round Valley Regional Preserve.
The top photo is my official Project 64 entry.

This picture was taken at a vineyard that I pass by on my way home from the kid's schools.
