I almost missed this Sunday Stills challenge this week. The weather has been great and I had a busy week and weekend. Enjoying the new covered deck I dug out, yes dug out, because I haven’t been in the photo mood, my bag and gear. My big tripod is somewhere tucked away.
I was also working on family ancestry stuff, found a divorce decree along with the marriage certificate and application for my great great grandfather (circa 1892 – his second marriage and 1900 for the divorce). My great great grandmother passed away in the 1889 timeframe. Pretty neat stuff.
Here is my gear – Nikon D60 with the SB-600 flash (don’t use it enough), with the 10-24mm wide angle mounted and sitting on my mini tripod which I bought in Germany in 1982. My Lowepro gear bag, 18-55 and 55-200 lenses that came with the camera and a Nikon remote button. I highly recommend a remote for night shots and those long exposures or when you want those self-portraits. I took the picture with my wife’s 14 MP Nikon Coolpix which is very handy and does a fantastic job. My original Pentax K1000 is somewhere in my closet (probably next to the tripod) that I bought in 1978 and been around the world with me (at least until I picked up my first digital camera around 2001). Sorry for the pause in my typing, I am enjoying a very good piece of chocolate cake – oh wait, you don’t know I’m pausing to type.
