Tag: Nikon P-510

The cool thing about the Internet and blogging in general is that there are always voices out there that will challenge you. Here, thankfully, is no different. In my post yesterday about the P510 and printing above a certain size, I made an assertion that one would get crappy output above 8 x 10, perhaps; however, that was a faulty assertion, I have found out. After reading comments I thought: Certainly, this could be pilot error; after all, I would…

Tombstone, AZ As I review my photos, I get a laugh sometimes. Before I went to Arizona, I got into the same ‘conversation’ in my head about which camera to take. Finally, I squashed all of that chatter and decided to take the Nikon P-510 and my Olympus 35 LC, a circa 1967 film rangefinder and that’s what I did. The main reason was because of portability and the low hassle factor. At no point did I regret the decision…

This weekend, I took a quick trip down to Charleston with my friend James. Sometimes, I miss Charleston, especially the beach. Though I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a beach fan, I do miss the beach in the winter and late fall when the population has fallen drastically and the breeze is cool, rather than warm and humid. James and I spent most of the day Saturday in downtown, walking, looking around, and finally stopping for…

Yesterday was the World Wide Photo Walk. I had planned to go to Charleston, but decided to give the knee a rest, which by the way, it is doing quite excellent now! I’d say we are back to 90% and I will attend a Tai Chi class this week, but will still take it easy. As a matter of fact, Hobbs and I went for a very short walk on Friday, and I went for another one yesterday! Almost back…

Not a lot to say today, just thought that I’d share a photo that I took last night. Spent about 30 minutes, perhaps less, down at the park. When I looked outside yesterday evening, I noticed some interesting clouds in the west, so thought that I might hobble my way down to the lake and shoot a few. A good sunrise or sunset always does wonders for the mood! The leaves are holding steady in their color and the knee…

First of all, congratulations to Ken on the new member to his family, the Nikon D600 :D. I’ve been thinking about this post in various incarnations for the past few days, but nothing seemed to gel. When I saw Ken’s post, I thought that was pretty cool. I guess that I could say that had I not just gotten a D700 that the D600 might have been on my list … just because. At any rate, I’ve just finished hanging…
