Beach sunset

So we stayed at a beach a couple of days last month. It was a bit crappy because every afternoon the skies became all cloudy. We never got a chance to see a clear sky the whole week we were at the beach. One of the best days we were there I just decided to set up my Go pro camera to take a sunset time lapse shot. 

Unfortunately I only had my monopod with me when I did this. So I had to stick the Go pro into the monopod and held it down with the straps from my bag. A big no-no for time lapse shots as you have to keep it steady. The camera slipped in the middle of the time lapse and I had to reposition it.

The final wasn't bad. Maybe next time I won't forget my tripod.

Quad shots late afternoon

Still flying my quad and taking shots! I've flown the quad probably a hundred times now. I am having so much fun with this thing. I have decided to take a sunset shot when I flew it this time.

Days are getting shorter due to winter approaching in a couple of months so I am now making the most out of the warm weather still.

I hobby expo 2014

Trains, trains and more trains!
Being an rc hobbyist. I was excited to find out about the I hobby expo in Illinois. This is actually my first time attending a hobby expo. It was awesome being there to see the different vendors offering new and better products than before.

Excellent selection of rc car bodies.
I went to the expo with a friend and took my awesome Canon G15 to take shots. It's great not to worry about which body and lens combination to bring, and it's also light! I just set my shooting mode to shutter priority, set my shutter speed, and shoot.

I will be attending next years event for sure! For now, enjoy the pictures!
