Glowing Fruit

December 1, 2009 at 7:40 pm (Camera Gear, Food, Penticton)

I’ve been down in Penticton for almost a week now, so I am definitely settling in. The ‘vacation’ new home allure is starting to wear off however, and I am going to have to start accomplishing something soon. Time to go see about getting my license upgraded. Yes, for those who don’t know, that’s the plan … go get a class 1 license with air brakes, and start driving the big rigs. Maybe get a new laptop (my current laptop that I never use is quite old now), pack the camera gear, and start seeing the country. Turn this space into a ‘on the road from the cab of a truck’ photo blog. For a few years anyway.

Wandered down to Safeway last night for some grocery shopping and brought my camera with me. Despite some odd looks from fellow shoppers, the staff left me to do my thing, and I got some nice produce shots. Used the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, a lens which I love more and more every time I use it. Sharp as a blade, and fast enough to use handheld at night on the streets. I want to get the 50mm f/1.4 just to see if it is that much better at handhelds, though that’s a $500 what if…

Weather is pretty beautiful right now. Nice bright sun. I think I am going to wander downtown this afternoon, and see what I can see. Go visit my old haunts. I’ve not really explored downtown since I’ve been back. I already know it’s just going to be the same old…

Hello Penticton British Columbia

November 27, 2009 at 4:06 am (Penticton)

Well, I have made it down intact and in one piece. Lucky too, there was one heck of a blizzard coming through Rogers Pass. There were a few cars in the ditch, and a large semi-trailer jack-knifed and had its tractor in the ditch, and trailer sticking out right into traffic lanes. Almost ran into myself. Me: I just took it easy … slow and steady. We made it all right, though a 10 hour drive was turned into a 12+ hour drive.

Feels good to be back home. Spent a few minutes today settling into my new (temporary) home. First things first, I got the computer hooked up. Next I unpacked my clothes. The weather here has not been great, a little gloomy and cloudy, though still quite mild. Have not gone out for new pics yet … though I will very soon, perhaps tomorrow if the weather is OK. I am going to have to wander around soon and see what has changed in the last three years, and go catch up with some old friends.

Here’s an old shot for you … one that is somewhat iconic of Penticton:
