Carnival, in that 70's feel...
Carousel... ZM50 f/2 ISO 400
This weekend, our city of Cerritos hosted a carnival for the "Community Spring Festival". To me, this is another chance to take the family out for some fun while giving myself an excuse to take more photos. I've never shot fireworks with the M9 yet, so I'm a little unprepared and wasn't sure what to do. Needless to say, I was a bit anxious to check out my images in Lightroom as soon as we got home.
People and tents... ZM50 f/1.5 ISO 400
While playing with the files, I noticed that I really like the mood of the images when I applied the "Yesteryear" presets. They reminded me of the old pictures I have when I was just a baby in the 70's. It's funny how colors does that to a person. None of these photos are spectacular in any way, but I think sometimes we connect with certain images because of the emotions that they trigger within us.
Here are a few more I'd like to share...

Hi, It's true. I'm publishing this site using the free weebly.com account. I think the "pro" version will remove that message and some other features, but I haven't find the need for them. Thank you for visiting!

HI there! Any chance I could use a few of your Carnival shots in a music video I'm producing? It's just a small time labor of Love, no real budget to speak of. Our group has a small time following on line and we play a few of the local places in and around Huntington Beach. Check out the tune on our Reverb Nation Page.https://www.reverbnation.com/boardinghouse/song/32411980-thats-how-it-all-went-down?fb_og_action=reverbnation_fb:unknown&fb_og_object=reverbnation_fb:song&player_client_id=j29dsi7kl&utm_campaign=a_public_songs&utm_content=reverbnation_fb:song&utm_medium=facebook_og&utm_source=reverbnation_fb:unknown
