The Historic C.O.D Ranch

The Historic COD Ranch

The Historic C.O.D Ranch outside Oracle in Arizona where Automattic held a meetup in January 2008. Winter in the desert is mostly pleasant, during the day. At night it was freezing!

Fire Hydrant #1

Fire Hydrant 1

So I went to Canada and took photos of fire hydrants, or fire plugs as they’re apparently known as in the US.

First of three photos taken in Quebec. I love the white fencing behind. Houses near where we stayed in Mont-Sainte-Anne were all pretty and different. Beautiful part of the country.

A Cabin in the Rockies

A Cabin in the Rockies

A small wooden cabin or hut sits in a car park near the houses Automattic stayed in at Breckenridge in Colorado. The original shot can be seen in my Flickr stream or in the Automattic group there. This version has been extensively dodged and burned to bring out the contrast between light and dark.

Late posting of today’s photo because of the camera club tonight. It was model shoot night and I got a few shots but I’m not very comfortable directing so I’m undecided as to how well the photos came out.
