New Canon 60d arrived yesterday

Can't believe Canon is NOT including lens hood.I ordered one from Amazon about an hour ago. Spare battery and another backpack were ordered a couple of days ago.On the wish list is the battery grip.

I'll take it for a spin today.

Dailey chores

The daily routine is get the front bird feeder set up.I get plenty of help from help from my pals "Bear" and "Paws".

Paws will then sit and watch from inside the activity at the feeder.Every now and then curling her lip up and making funny sounds. Maybe she is telling the sparrows on the other side of the glass, "If I was out there you guys wouldn't be so smug"

I took advantage of the soft mulch the county had just put down in one of the "Paw Playgrounds"

Got lazy that day and shot with the little walk around camera.

Light House Project...Started Sept. 16,2010

I've had this project on the back burner for some time and Friday Sept 17th I got a chance to maybe at least get it started.

To be honest, I'm a little disappointed in the Light Houses here in Florida,as I did my background research,I found what is out there, is not what I'm used to. However I started anyway,in spite of the photographic quality I ran into in the research.

Out in the field 2  days, in the northern most part of the east coast of Florida,I shot 5 lighthouses,from Amelia Island south.

GPS sure made my life easier and less stressful,got me to where I wanted to go without missing a beat,even on the ferry crossing "She" I call her her "Miss Jared" was barking out directions.

30 LH's if my count is correct. Some because of seasonal restraints I may not be able to visit.

Ok first venture out:

Sept 17--18  2010

Mal,Bear and I left Clearwater at 6am and arrived at Ponce De Leon Inlet  LH and started working the shutters at 0839. Speaking of shutters,I had a task at hand,I wanted to compare shots from 3 CAMERAS.The 3 where, the little Panny ZS7
The Panny GF1 with 20mm lens

And the Panny G1 with 45x200mm

The drill was to take the same capture with each...hmmmmmm

Don't laugh it worked out pretty well.

Helping a friend get started with photography

It is a little work,if you do it correctly...but the rewards are astounding.

We're working on the work flow.

The equipment...all the buttons......the correct names for things...what to do at what time.....may seem a little over powering now but it will fall into place after....REPARTITION,REPARTITION,REPARTITION
