David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.


One-Year Ago Today — Japan

Once we cleared immigration control, we had to remain off the ship until everyone was cleared. It was cold. I'm glad I was wearing a sweater, coat, and wool hat. In addition to a camera, I brought a tripod with a Mindarin Astro 360° rotating head for the tripod. This rotating head controls the camera for doing rotating panoramas or rotating time-lapsed videos. I did several sets of images while on the Osanbashi Pier, which were then processed with AutoPano Giga Pro to create Little Planet, Mirror Ball, and Panorama views of the MV World Odyssey and the Yokohama skyline. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage — Day 19. For the panorama images it it best to view in full screen mode.
