GIS in Photos

May 5, 2011 § 4 Comments

Sometimes I get to combine my love of photography and my job, and my latest assignment for GIS Lounge did exactly that.

I took my camera with me to work almost every day for a week. I was even captured on camera, with the help of my co-workers (under my strict supervision of course).

During my week of photos, this is one of my favorites because it showcases the Sheriff’s department using Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, to help them do their job and keep the community safe.

Birdies

May 1, 2011 § 8 Comments

I had no idea that the Los Angeles Arboretum had peacocks, peahens, and a gaggle of other birds cruising around the property; I had never been there before last week.

I also did not realize that peacocks and peahens flew. Those are big birds!

While my beloved distracted a peacock after much debate about whether they attack, I got close to the bird’s tail (longer than Kate Middleton’s train, might I add) with my Tamron 90 mm:

Neither of us were attacked, I got my photo while a bird that can only be left over from the Jurassic period eyed me up and down, calling to his buddies to keep me in check.

Thanks for stopping by!
