Daily Flash # 3 From Sunny Coast — Crystal Shimmer/New Camera

Doesn’t show up that well here, but the hanging crystal here atop Louie’s shop reflects sunlight in shimmering green flashes or reds,  depending on where you’re standing. There are cases where a camera just can’t replicate reality.

I’m pretty excited to be shooting once again with a honker Canon — the T5i Rebel with super 18-135mm EF-S IS STM Lens, a poor man’s 5D. The shutter lag of my smaller cameras just not acceptable. Already getting good people shots. This lens is smooth, fast, silent (although the shutter goes ka-womp, but hey, I’m a photographer…)

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
