Architecture Week

May 31st, 2013 Comments off

I participated in Southern Arizona’s Architecture Week. I worked helped out in designing one of the CANstruction structures. CANstruction is an event that benefits the local food bank, in this case it was the Tucson Food Bank. I volunteered to photograph the event for the Southern Arizona Chapter of American Institute of Architects. I had also created a time-lapse of constructing a food can structure.

I saw the start of a lightning storm off to the east while driving to my hotel in Show Low, Arizona. As I drove a litte further south on Highway 77, I then noticed a sign for White Mountain Lake, so I decided to take a look. I’ve wanted to photograph the monsoon storms in Arizona for the past few years. Well this time, I’ve hit the jackpot. Here’s a timelapse of the amazing show.

Wetmore Road at dusk

I try to walk Indy (my dog) daily. Most days I don’t have time until the evening. I enjoy walking around Tucson Auto Mall, which is a good 1.3 mile loop. I also get to take a look at the new vehicles from the different manufacturers. I was there at a great time tonight, it was dusk and you can still see a little blue in the sky.

3 RC helicopters stationaryI’ve heard about a event to introduce people to RC aircraft sponsored by the Sonoran Desert Flyers. It was held at Naranja Park in Oro Valley, Arizona. I love helicopters so I went there to check out the RC planes and helicopters. And also to take a few photos. These 3 RC helicopters are the Align T-Rex. They are all electric and very cool.

Living room and Dining roomOne area of photography I am trying to start a business in is Real Estate and Architecture photography. I’ve had a chance to visit a friend who has a beautiful home. This is just a quick test shot from my iPhone 4S but I’ve took a bunch with my Canon 7D. Coming soon, you can check out those photos on my new business website.

black Canon Powershot S100 point and shoot camera
I just got a Canon Powershot S100, it’s been a hard to find camera that’s been sold out at most places. Other places I’ve found on the web are charging over MSRP. It will be a camera that I’m going to try to carry around daily. It will be one of the cameras I will use for 365 Project and other photography interest. The other cameras I will use are Canon EOS 7D and iPhone 4S. I haven’t decided if I want to retire my old Canon Powershot SD750 point & shoot. For now, I’ve hack it and install CHDK (Canon Hack Developer Kit)

Happy New Year!
Last year I heard about 365project.org where you take a photo a day and post it. I was interested in participating last year but I felt I wanted to start at the beginning of a year. Well here I am and a couple of days in. I’ve been thinking daily what do I need to shoot. Well after a few days of posting photos and descriptions, it looks like a blog. I thought to my self why am I leaving this blog in limbo with only 6 post a year. I need to post everything here too. So hopefully if I survive this task you are going to see a post a day for the next 365 days. Well, some days, you will see more than one post which is good because I need to catch up in posting my 365Project posts here and I still want to show some of my other work. You can also see my photos at http://365project/danielyu If you ware interested in starting, it’s not too late. Join me and add me as a friend.
