View from the Back of the Bus

Headed home from Folsom, I chose the last seat on the left, hoping to repeat a shot I took more than a year ago.

It’s interesting how the different cameras show the same view. I shot this one with my Samsung Galaxy S5, last year’s most likely with a Canon PowerShot S100.

Yesterday during lunch, I stopped at the BPA Keeler Substation to take some pictures of the transmission line tower on its front lawn. I used my cell phone’s camera because that’s all I had with me. Surprise — Transmission towers are huge! I couldn’t get enough of the tower in view.

I returned today with my Canon S100 point and shoot with its 24mm (equivalent) lens. Much better! :-)

When the sky is cloudless, I’ll try this again.

Work this morning started with a 7 AM meeting.1 After the meeting, I headed off to work on my bike. In Dawson Creek Park, I saw some ducklings for the second time this season and the three families of Canada geese with goslings that hang out together. Although they’ve had gray coloration for awhile,2 it seems like just this week that they’ve started having white and black tail feathers. Guess I’ll have to go check some earlier photos. And of course, I took a picture of my favorite clump of trees.

What a great way to start my Friday!
