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.
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.
So I bought a Nikon d70 digital camera online for 49.00 dollars. No tax and free shipping. FedEx. Slap me. Plus it only had around 4100 shutter clicks. Poor thing. Give me photos that are not perfect. Give me wrinkles. A good brie on sour dough toast that I made myself. A straight jacket that has padded elbows. A good artisan soap that gets soggy in the soap dish. You … [Read more...] about Nikon D70 6MP shootout. Old school is New school. Paid 49.00 dollars.
Sometimes I just want a camera that the thieves can steal without me giving a damn. The kind that I can walk in the ghetto and the hustlers have a better camera than me. It has a sliding cover that reveals the lens and flash. Also, the sliding cover turns the camera on and off. Camera is made of metal! So I bought a Casio Ex-V8 on ebay for 4 dollars. The shipping was around … [Read more...] about Casio Ex-V8 3rd world ghetto camera. Paid 4 dollars on ebay.
For some reason is of this yellow flower. Well I guess the reason was of the shadow it cast on the leaf below. This one day I walked through this field and all the flowers were in full bloom. Later that month I returned and the field was empty. Like life...we are here and then gone. Hopefully I’m a perennial. Nikon d60 and Nikon 18-55mm lens. … [Read more...] about My favorite recent photo of a flower.
