night shots

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. ehp-09ehp-08ehp-07ehp-02ehp-04ehp-06ehp-05 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.

The colors of the sunset that we saw coming home from an adventure on Cayuga Lake near Ithaca NY. This image is from the Rt. 201 crossing in Johnson City New York. Moon 007 The moon coming up over the horizon at 6:57pm local time on the Vestal Parkway East. Also on the Rt. 201 Crossing. Moon 008 9:24pm from the front yard in Binghamton NY. Moon 009 9:32pm Moon 010 9:47pm Moon 011 10:03pm Moon 012 And my last image of the night taken at 10:09pm. It was a fun, enjoyable outing to watch as the moon was going through its eclipse and I learned some new things with my camera as well. Night shots are still something that I'm working on and hope to master some day. Until the next eclipse, enjoy MT :)

Hello every one, it's bean a couple of weeks séance my last post but I'm still hear. Things are fine and I'm looking forwards to the onset of spring in Binghamton NY. Today I'm sharing some images of a foggy March 10th night on the Chenango River that I thought were pretty cool. Me and my oldest son (MCD) took a midnight wake to play with our cameras for nether one of us have really done any night shooting that amounted to anything before and we were queries. Well, to get started: The top image and the next one are of the Exchange Street Bridge looking up stream from the rivers edge. The third images is of the Washington Street Bridge. The one after that is the Rt 434 Crossing Bridge, that is one of the main artery of traffic in the Binghamton and Vestal area. The last image is of the old Crowley's Dairy Plant as it sits next to the river with the tall chimney. Night Shoots 005Night Shoots 001Night Shoots 002Night Shoots 008
