Well…this is late again.
It’s been an awkwardly busy time in my world. The weather has been consistently decent. So it has not been the issue. The weather has actually provided some good opportunities for my photography. When I created this image for my “The One Aperture Challenge” I was out at work. This image is of the Pulaski Skyway,a four-lane bridge-causeway, in NJ. Its viewed as a death trap by many. I took this image a f11 but with a Neutral Density Filter. It was early in the morning. This meant a long exposure in a new place I could not resist. I knew I would be there so I had my Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D with me on my Nikon D700 I also had my 3 Legged Thing Brian in the car as well. It made a ultra early morning bearable. It did not take me too long to get the shot. It did take me a while to get to processing it. Time kinda got away from me.
Well as the weekend came I had a few minutes in the mornings to play. I went for a bike ride and I brought my gear with me.I had my 200mm f4 Ais lens on a 2x teleconverter on my D700.this set up is amazing. The bokeh and Depth of field are divine. This set up has save me a lot of money. I do not shoot at a 400mm often. It’s nice to be able to do it with gear I already have. Ive been more frugal.This frugality has helped me discover new things about my gear and helped me use them to their fullest. My object challenge seems to favor the long focal lengths it’s provided a change. I was getting bored and now I have found inspiration again. I will get through this challenge. Facing this is helping me grow. The next entry is going to be even more fun. I have a new lens.
