Street Survivors

I used artistic filters on this particular photograph in order to keep the identity of these bikers masked, since they are purportedly ‘outlaw’ bikers, and I understand they would want their privacy and I respect that.

I also create photographs to my liking, and adding a little something on this photo is something I’m good with, may continue with, and I’m probably going to print this one out and hang it on my wall.

Have a great day. Very happy to be back taking photographs and sharing them.

Take care, stay safe!

Zoom

After wishing on this for a lifetime, I finally obtained a decent zoom lens for my Nikon D5300.

I purchased this a Sigma 150-500mm used lens from a camera shop in Indianapolis, Indiana called Roberts Camera Shop, through their eBay department.

After asking all of the pertinent questions: Any fungus? Joint movement? Ever been dropped? Damage? Dirt inside? I felt comfortable enough to buy this lens from them.

Today was day-one with the Sigma. Heavy, bulky, all of the things I thought it would be…but even on an overcast day like today, I have to say I am pretty happy with the results. It’s a keeper and for the first time in my life, I felt as if I had an equal chance to put out some presentable nature photography as I always have dreamed.

Today was heavy with the Canada Geese, so it was practice on each shot, nothing but fun.

Overcast, shooting towards the brightest part of the sky (sun behind the clouds), I was still satisfied with my results. Cannot wait to dive deep into this thing and really see what it can do.

This shot was taken at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Looking quiet up there..

So much happening today in the city. Rioting, looting, doesn’t appear to be getting better. Prayers to all.

Moon Shot

If the moon were actually made of cheese… I’d like to think it would be aged Gouda. Can’t seem to ever get enough of aged Gouda! Weird Monday mood today, hope you all have a fantastic day!
