As some of you know, I had on order of 1200 recent photos to dig through. Others may remember that I bought a new super-telephoto zoom lens in May. Because of the large numbers involved, I decided to split it into three posts:
Quick background: After the initial photos I posted in May, I did some walk around in New Hampshire and a long weekend on Cape Cod over Memorial Day weekend (last weekend in May). This was a time I was doing a lot of testing and experimenting. I took about 400 photos. I then spent two weeks on Cape Cod, with a bit of time off, in the middle of June. I spent a lot of time on the kayak taking photos and a few walks in the salt marshes and woods. This came in at about 800 photos.
I used to do a lot of photo posts, but haven’t put many up recently. I have literally thousands of photos from 2018 and early 2019 that I have not even looked at let alone sorted and edited! over the last week I broke down and looked at the last few.
I spent the last week of June on Cape Cod. I worked half of the week and entertain guests, so I didn’t take a lot of photos that I can post, but there are a few, like this photo of my nephew fishing. Continue reading →
I have to admit that i don’t really like the camera on my phone. OK, it takes pretty good panoramas. Well, occasionally it comes up with some great panoramas (picture at the top). But want to take a picture of an object, animal, person or whatever? Nope. I once saw a snake and decided to take a picture to check later if it was poisonous. I’m glad it wasn’t because I had to get the phone about 4 inches away to get a picture of it. I have no idea what they thought this camera was good for except maybe taking a selfie with 20 people in it, held out at arms length only.
One good thing is that I always have it on me. Of course 99.99% i do try to capture the moment, the moment is one pixel on a giant panorama, but at least it is there.
