Happy Monday everyone. Today's photo was taken with my iPhone 6s Plus in American Village using the camera app 645 Pro, one of my favorites for iPhoneograhy. Hope everyone has a great day and thanks for stopping by today.
Okinawa is known for beautiful beaches and ocean views. I took this photo of Araha, Beach in Chatan, Okinawa with my iPhone 6s Plus. In the distance you can see the Ferris wheel from American Village. Thanks for stopping by today.
We finally got some decent weather yesterday after a week of rain, clouds and cold. I decided to head over to Chatan and walk around with my iPhone 6 and my Fuji x100s. Just for a change I've had the TCLx100 on for a couple weeks now. I love the 35 equivalent I get from my x100s, but sometimes it's just nice to shoot with a 50mm focal length. I never grow tired of how even the most mundane can look interesting in late afternoon light. I shot the next two images from my car. I see so many photos from my car, but usually can't stop or get to my camera in time.
Okinawa's sky is hazy lately from the dust and pollution passing through from China, and it reminded me of this image I shot a couple weeks ago. I was walking along the seawall in Chatan, and I saw this couple trying to soak up what little sun was making it's way through the haze/clouds that day. Times like this when the little bit of extra reach from the teleconverter pays off. Any closer and they would have noticed me and changed the moment. At almost 3:00 pm in the afternoon I was shooting slightly into the sun, pulling some contrast from the shot, but I still like it.
