Here are some pictures from various places in the Bay Area. Mostly I've been going around the area with my Sony a6000 and having fun. In March I went to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for the first time in my life, with my friends the Fields, and found a few fun shots. And in May I joined many camera club friends at Carnaval. In October 2018 I went to the Potrero Power Plant for an Artists' tour on a camera club field trip, and had some pleasant shots. In November I went back to the Mission to practice with my new a6500

In late May I went to the San Francisco Carnaval to practice shooting people using my 18-200 mm lens at 200 mm or so and at f/5.6 to blur the background.
