I got a whole bunch of new gear from my pops and decided to head out with my T2i and my new 80-200 f/4 ai-s lens and see what I could see. It’s a big change for me as the only other zoom lens I’ve ever used is the kit 18-55 lens and now having a manual focus zoom lens with a bit more reach then I’m used to makes it...…
Took this shot a while back at a breakfast/brunch place in Montreal. Food was good but portions definitely put some American portions to shame.
Shot in the late 1920s and early 1930s, “the films, which for years were thought to be in black and white, are home movies shot for the most part by Hoover’s wife, Lou, according to Thomas F. Schwartz, director of the library-museum, which is overseen by the National Archives.”
We went to downtown Cincinnati this weekend and got a nice room with a view. All I had on me was my iphone but I got some decent shots. I uploaded this shot to instagram but when I got home I realized there was a fatal flaw.
Good evening friends, it’s been a busy week. And now it’s the last of vacation preparations, which include some wrenching on the car. It’s supposed to be 90 bloody degrees here tomorrow. But we go to pine trees and cold waters!
The lighting in these shots are better since they were taken as the show was ending.
Tonight there was yet another rocket launch, but this one has a fun story. And I take full credit for getting it on broadcast on television. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself.
So, I’ve finally done it. I’ve given myself a birthday gift I’ve been wanting for quite some time now. Hope you all enjoy!
This all started with a post on Facebook from my friend Alex. He put up a link to an article about a mobile pop-up oyster bar that had come to St. Petersburg. Some people were commenting that there was no was they’d eat oysters out of a van. I, the eternal optimist, was convinced that there was nothing shady about…
SpaceX launched the EchoStar XXIII communications satellite early this morning, 2:ooam EST. It was in the middle of the night and actually cold out, but I dragged the gear to my spot to watch it go up.
The dump continues. Delahayes for RallyDarkstrike inside. Also there probably will be a part 3 which has better lighting.
From the era of black and white silent movies, here is some test footage of silent film stars using early Kodachrome film. Note how the actresses are still using the affected gestures of the period. What is also interesting to note is how the early film handled colors of different wavelengths. Red is brilliant, while…
Sunday didn’t go as planned, but it couldn’t have gone any better. My alarm went off, but I decided I needed a little more sleep rather than Stadium Super Trucks. I was going to hang out in the Pirelli World Challenge paddock to take pictures of them prepping for the second GT race of the weekend. Because it was going…
Evening. Daylight is saved! And apparently so was this fly, for later.
sewwwwwww fauncyyyyyyyyy. Also this post is very picture heavy. I will be really surprised if kinja actually posts this. This is basically everything I saw in order.
Here in New York, we experienced some light snow on Friday. What better way to celebrate than to whip out my new camera and take some shots of a diecast ML in the snow? OFF ROAD ALL OF THE THINGS!
Saturday at the races. Today I set out to take more pictures of cars on track, which I did. But I felt off my game. I got out of the zone. My timing was off when doing follow shots. I was getting my focus points wrong. The stupid catch fence was cramping my style. Good fences might make good neighbors, but they make…
A bunch of pics from Atlantic City
The Grand Prix Of St. Petersburg. Finally. Today, was mostly practice and qualifying for all of the series that run here, with the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class having the only race of the day. I spent the first half of the day running around the support paddock, because that’s where the good stuff is. I also had…
