  1. Why Not a Blog Y2D107

    Well the week flew by! so so fast,,, guess I was busy, but kinda scary sometimes how fast.

    I was thinking this morning how important it is to get photos right each and every snap. As some may know, I shoot in full manual mode, hardely ever shoot in auto modes, sometimes, but 99% of time
    in manual, just because I find it fast.

Get it out of storage, get air in the tires, feels good, easy to get in and out of rolls nice down the hall, goes through the bedroom door (A little tight) Wait, does not fit through the

    wow,,, the months are flying by,, but, I have had a strong photo month,, I guess you go in spurts sometimes. I try to shoot every week, and keep and eye out, but some times opportunites come along for concentrated
    shoots where you can spend a few hours just taking photos. instead of trying to squeeze off shots.

    I guess that is

    I took a chance, put on my waders, and carefully walked into the tidal flats,,, does make you a bit nervous, carrying your D800 and 80-400 lens, but,, sometimes, you have to take risk


    acutally, I am always taking risks,, climbing cliffs, walkin up slippery water falls, overhanging objects, etc,, but its the pictures!

  5. Day Three of broken leg

    This stinks. I am stuck at home because I can't drive with the right leg in a cast. I guess I could move to England so that I could drive but that seems a little extreme. Also because of the recent rotator cuff surgery I can't use crutches or a walker either. The answer is something called a knee walker.

  6. Ever noticed something in one of your photos after the fact?

    We took the kids to a local apple orchard / pumpkin patch this past weekend.
    As usual, I strapped on my Blackrapid and camera for the day. I uploaded some pics to the family SmugMug site last night and sent out the link.

    My sister calls me this morning and directs me to one image in the album (below). That is her and her kids in

    I usually don't have a power issue,, but,, I laid my camera down,, with a full charged battery,, and must had depressed the shutter ,,, should had of course turned it off,


    anyway,, it totally drained my second battery,,,,

  10. Backgrounds

    Well its been pretty quiet on night shift and apart from having plenty of bugs to shoot I have also been experimenting with different backgrounds. As you would have noticed my night time macros tend to be surrounded by back space due to it being dark and the flash firing, well I have come up with an idea by adding in my own backgrounds. This in itself
