camera 'upgrade'

| No Comments

I've always thought my camera looked too 'techy', so when I found out that this Japanese company made Olympus PEN E-P3 custom leather skins I decided I had to have one. Got it in the mail today and voila! What do you think...?

On business in San Francisco. Experimenting with black and white photography, and realizing that shooting monochrome gives the result a different 'feel' than just a standard color photo that I usually post on lewislau.com...

After work I went for a 3 mile interval run, and getting ready to go to dinner with my birthday pal Gregg. Will try to eat something healthy tonight. Maybe ;)

Beautiful Sunday in San Francisco

Tried to wake up early to go for a morning run, but although I went to bed at a reasonable hour last night (11pm) when my alarm went off at 7am I couldn't resist the SNOOZE button, and finally woke up at 9:45am and decided that I should just get ready for brunch instead :P

Met up with my friends Danny and Gregg to a restaurant near Mission (a bad neighborhood, so I was told) called AQ. The food was excellent and although I had two cups of coffee I was sleepy from the food-coma, so we decided to walk to an area nearby called the Mint Plaza. I got a cup of latte at what is supposed to be "the best coffee in San Francisco" - not sure if I will agree that it's really all that great...

While sitting around the nice Mint Plaza neighborhood's pretty plastic orange chairs (how come no one steals them?) we talked about how a 650 sq ft apartment there costs $2600/month. Geez - they must pay well in the Bay Area - even back in LA at the comparable Old Bank district (which is also close to skid row, like Mint's proximity to the run-down Mission area) my 1100 sq. ft loft was less than half that!

With the black and white shot yesterday I decided that I should have a vibrant color one this one. Nice blue sky for contrast :)

Hope everyone is having a great Sunday!

back to life, back to reality

20120908_SF.jpgAfter my short break (and the long labor day weekend to rid of the jet-lag) I'm back in work mode. Spent a few days in LA before heading out to San Francisco for work this coming week. Flew in early and hung out with my friend Danny for the weekend. The train track picture above was taken last night by the doggy park by his apartment - I'm experimenting with Black and White photos these days ;)
