Some night shots that I took the evening of April 20th in Down Town Binghamton after a rain storm. Most of the images are taken on Court Street in Down Town Binghamton (Images 7, 11,12, 13,and 15). Image #6 is taken from the Riverside Bridge north looking up the Chenango River. Images 1 and 2 are taken from the Vestal side of the Susquehanna River off of Conklin Ave on Binghamton's south side in my homes area. Binghamton is a nice little community I think for the most part. A little bit of everything if you know were to look. 671112131512 I have not had too much time recently to make any posted or even to look at my reader to see what you all are all up to these days. I've got myself involved in too many functions and obligations that keeping me very busy these last few weeks. Things are starting to slow down slightly for the moment. I hope to make a few posted hear and there when I can. I plan on keeping up with your activities but probably I will not be able to go back to see pasted works for most of you though. I am also 11 weeks in on my new right titanium knee and doing well. I'm gaining strength and stamina every day that I'm on it and working. The first couple weeks after the surgery were no fun though, but I would gladly do it all over again if I had too. I do not miss any the issues that were bothering me before the surgery at all. I do have to learn how to deal with some new limitation though that I did not have with my original knee even in the conditions that it was in but I may be able to over come them in the future.
These images are from an outing I had gone on this past weekend in Union-Endiccott NY and at the Holiday Parade they had. It was a night event with beautiful lite flouts and trucks and a lot of music. The pictures are not the greatest replica of the event but they are the only usable pictures that I could use to show you. Anyway, hope you enjoy them just the same with out the music of cores. This last shot is my favorite of the group and is of the Wilcox truck leaving the area after the parade was done.
Back in March, me and my oldest son were fooling around with trying to come up with a good moon shots with a new Bower 650-2600mm Telephoto Lens for the Canon EOS cameras I picked up. This was the best image that I came up with on that outing. I'm still working out some of the issues that I'm having with this new lens, learning as I go by trial and error. It is a pain in the butt to work with, especially for birding shots, but it is naturally on its own a great spotting scope.
On November 21st, I went down into the City of Binghamton to try some manual night ISO shot with Maria along the south side of the Susquehanna River. We ended up going in the city as well after shooting along the river bank and came up with some nice result in both locations for our selves with the manual settings. I particularly like the way the lights appear in this image and the reflections on the water with the Washington Street Bridge in the background.
