Kitty, originally uploaded by efroymson.

So I heard that Cat blogging is really popular, and decided to try some of my own. This is a friend's cat, it lives in Belmont, CA. I think its name is "Cat" or "Kitty".

Tech details: 1/45 second, 160 ISO. I think it was the 50 Summicron at f2.8 or so.

Clouds, originally uploaded by efroymson.

A couple of nights ago we walked around the neighborhood. I grabbed my camera before we left, and this is one of the shots I took. It is not really of the sunset, but of the sunset reflecting off of some clouds in the east.

For whatever reason there were fewer clouds in the west, so the sunset itself was not so dramatic. It was colorful enough, but did not extend much above the horizon. The clouds in the East did not look quite like this, but I pumped up the volume a bit in Capture one.

This was one of my first pictures with a UV/IR filter, since I finally got the 49mm filter for my 75 f2. It probably did not make much of a difference in this particular shot, as there is probably not a lot of IR in the sunshine at the end of the day (is that so?). Another new thing is that this was the first set of shots with the new 1.092 firmware in the camera.
