Shi Shi Beach

Friday, January 8, 2010


Whoops, I missed yesterday. Sorry about that. By the time I realized I hadn’t posted anything yet, it was already pushing 6pm, so at that point I felt I might as well wait until today. To make up for it, I’m posting this one much earlier than usual. I’m pretending, as I write this, that there are massive hordes of people out there whose sole bit of excitement each day comes from me picking a random-and-probably-mediocre 640×427 jpeg and putting it against a white background for their perusal. Shhh, don’t disturb me, I’m enjoying this fantasy. I’m sure there are a couple, maybe even that aren’t my mom, but maybe not. (Hahaha who am I kidding, my mom doesn’t understand technology well enough to find my page.)

This is of course Shi Shi Beach. A. Gain. It’s apparently the only beach I’ve ever been to, judging from how many pictures of it I have, compared to everything else in the entire world. I mean, really, how many pictures can you really take in a 2 or 3 hour period? Quite a few, it turns out. It’s times like last night, when I spent a couple hours going through a whole pile of pictures from a couple of hikes last summer that were all just garbage because of bad lighting and haze, that I really appreciate hikes like this one, where for whatever reasons conditions are just perfect, and every click of the shutter is gold. Can’t explain why, sometimes things just work out. Like today. I get to have lunch at Chipotle today. The stars are just aligning in my favor. Delicious.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Canon 10-22 mm lens. 1/160s, f/8.0, ISO 100. Focal length: 20mm.
