Sunday is for Church

[click image to enlarge]

This Assembly of God Church seemed to appear overnight in this storefront on Washington Street in Quincy Point. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

It seems more and more churches are using store fronts and old retail boxes these days.

Slim --- I left a answer to your question on my blog, but thought I ought to drop it here to so that you would be more likely to get it.

Slim -- I use a Olympus E-510 camera with a 40- 150 mm lens (which translates to 80-300 to compare with old 35mm cameras) for most of these shots. But I had to do a lot of experimenting with the settings on the camera to get things the way I like them. I usually bump up the sharpness 2 notches, bump the contrast 1 notch. Turn of the the noise filter and the noise reduction (I like to take care of those in the photo editor afterwards -- I find the camera setting produce to soft an image for my liking. I shoot mostly at 400 speed for zoom shots. And many times for stiller shots I use manual focus and drop the zoom back down to about 130-140 which is a sweeter spot on my lens than the 150 mm setting.

Plus a few more tweaks.

Next week, you'll need to go back and get a picture of the priest when he gets off his bike. I bet he has some interesting tattoos. ;)

Snow Blossoms 2

Some places south of Quincy are enjoying cherry blossoms while we are enjoying snow blossoms once again!
