Photos (part 1 of 3) – Everything but the Osprey…

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:

Photos – Everything but the Osprey… (this post)
Photos – Osprey!
Photos – Lens Review

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 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.

Yesterday I needed it. Continue reading
