Zoom in to autofocus

I don't know if it's just me, or my equipment, or both. But I'm learning that when you're trying to autofocus a scene, try zooming in and focusing. Seems to work for me in terms of giving a more accurate reading.

Grasses at Cantigny


Grasses at Cantigny, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

I went over to Cantigny Park, in Wheaton, Illinois to photograph the grasses around Gold Pond before the end of "winter." And I timed it perfectly. They were cutting it all down that very morning! In fact, I had to move just ahead of the weedwacker at least once!

Two Guys Named Jim Frazier


Two Guys Named Jim Frazier, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

I set up a page on my web site for other Jim Fraziers since I felt kinda bad about snagging the domain name. So I get the occasional email from Jim Fraziers. I got an email from James Frazier, and it turned how he lives near where I was going to be doing a seminar, and he used to be a seminar leader too! So we set up lunch.

I had a weekend in New England before my seminar swing, so I took a day to drive out to Provincetown on Cape Cod. It was a wet, dreary day.

Amtrak 652 Southbound


Amtrak 652 Southbound, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

I did a seminar in New London, CT on 3/31/09 and had a chance to photograph a few Amtrak trains just south of the station. And this was the first time I've had a chance to see ELECTRIC Amtraks. Woo Hoo.
