Bought this Specialized road bike used from a dealer. Comes with Axis rims. The stock tires are not the best. Eventually I installed some Gatorskin continental tires that really improved the ride. The carbon forks were recalled for this 2019 model and the bike shop replaced them free. The bike is pretty easy to work on with just some basic tools. One can easily … [Read more...] about Specialized Allez Sport 2019 Road Bike
Some pictures I took using the Nikon D7100. The lens was AF-P Nikkor 10-20mm DX VR. Lots of old tractors being restored. Stray dog that roamed in and decided to call the place home. This dog is another stray and has been at the house many years. All the dogs that come to stay are very well behaved. … [Read more...] about Tennessee Old Homestead Photos

The yellow trail meanders through the woods and eventually splits to a blue overnight trail or a red trail. The red trail completes the loop back to the beginning. The problem with the red trail is it leads to the edge of the interstate and crosses an old railroad bridge that has been paved over. At the old railroad bridge you also have an interstate bridge that goes over a … [Read more...] about Yellow trail leads to hell. All photos taken with Nikon D200.
Bought a Nikon FE about 4 months ago for 59.00 dollars. Had to replace the light seals 3 times and sometimes the mirror gets stuck. Plus the cost of film development is between 15 and 17 dollars at the local marts. Mostly these pictures are me doing a quick shoot just to get developed and see if the light seals still leaked. Not the best shots. Possibly I’ll shoot film once in … [Read more...] about Nikon FE light seal check.
This was my first day out with the Nikon D200 using the Nikor DX AF-S 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G ED VR lens. Well I feel the images are to dark. White balance settings could be better. I was shooting at 1/1000 on a dark day. I did not edit these images except for cropping. Now I’m currently shooting at color temp 5000k on a different lens. So will try that on the 55-200mm lens in the … [Read more...] about Nikon D200 test of people Kayaking.
Purchased a used Nikon D200 in excellent condition for 109.00 dollars. Shot with a Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 35mm 1:1.8G lens. I sold my Nikon D300 which has the CMOS sensor.. The Nikon D200 has the CCD sensor. The body is magnesium alloy like the Nikon D300. The battery life is poor compared to the Nikon D300. The Nikon D300 seems to be better in low light conditions, neither are … [Read more...] about Nikon D200 photo test on Chicago Schwinn.
Recently I acquired a Nikon D200 after selling my Nikon D300. I have decided to shoot only ccd sensor cameras for the time being. Currently I'm discovering that shooting with the Nikon D200 is a little more difficult than the Nikon D300. White balance is giving me trouble and also shots of birds. I'll share my trials and errors with you. These photos are unedited except for … [Read more...] about Learning to shoot the Nikon D200 in 2019.
Hard sandstone. So hard you better pray your bolt holds when your bloody fingers give way as you make a quick decent. Made a day trip and walked up the big hill. Pulled out my trusty Nikon D70 and made some shots. The Tennessee Wall is located in Prentice Cooper State Forest. Long and winding road. First thing you see is a hard stretcher and neck brace. Safety first! Rock … [Read more...] about The Tennessee Wall. Big rock and big hearts.
Mostly these pictures are of reflections off the water. Plus some birds and random photos. I was using the AF-S Nikkor 55-200 mm lens with VR. When I was shooting the geese, I set the AF-area mode on closest subject. I was having a hard time focusing in on the geese and birds. I batch cropped the photos in Gimp so the quality is reduced on purpose. Movie at bottom of page show … [Read more...] about Reflections was the theme of the day out with the Nikon D70.
