    A good Nikon Wednesday to everyone. We've had some great postings that last few weeks, and I can't wait to see what folks come up with. Especially since the only photography I got in last week involved some industrial trailers. Woo hoo! So, how do you test a hydraulic lift in a stacking trailer? Squeeze in a 1974 Cadillac, roughly the size of Delaware, and see if you can get it up off the deck. What raised your interest last week? Share!

  4. On the rare occasions that I've had to shoot lately, I've mainly been using some old rangefinders I bought for cheap off of eBay. But here's a quick grab I took of our dog Sweeney the Weenie, all tuckered out from playing with his favorite toy.

  7. Hi, thought I'd join in for once. We've been so busy in the backyard working I've not had much time to do photography. But here are a few photos taken a little now & then over the last few weeks....
    1. I don't often photograph other people's horses, but the Equestrian Trails Organization had a small drivingshow in the new driving arena they recently put in where I ride so I took the opportonity to go & photograph them a little. This is the highpoint winner & her horse in their last class. Shot with the D800 & the 70-200VR f/2.8 at f/7.1 @ 160 mm, 1/2000, ISO 400 -2/3EV - shutter priority

    2. I found this little bug on one of my rose bushes a few weeks ago. Shot with the NIKON D300 with the Sigma 150mm Macro f/2.8 at f/8 @ 150 mm, 1/800, ISO 400 -1/3 EV handheld Aperture priority

    3. We've just put in two ponds in our backyard. Here's one of our waterlilies in the large pond. I picked this specific waterlily due to it's color. It's supposed to be orange, but it's really salmon colored - so a pinkish/orange. I waited as the sun was slowly creeping in & gave the flower a spotlight. Shot with the NIKON D300 paired with the Sigma 150mm Macro f/2.8 at f/5.6 @ 150 mm, 1/1000, ISO 1000 Manual exposure handheld in the shade.

    For a small town (pop=10,000), our 4th of July parade is quite good. A few of the Lexington and Concord Minutemen actually came from our town, so it's very possible that some of the Minutemen in this shot may be their descendants.

  11. This was taken a couple of days after the May 22nd tornado, the neighborhood was from the Bridge Creek Elementary school Moore, Ok.. We live 3 miles from the path.

  12. Another from around the corner. We were able to get into the neighborhood because of volunteering. I just had to document some.
    Looks like a closet or bath tub wouldn't always help....best place is under ground. We are saving to have a underground shelter installed....there is a waiting list.

  13. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    This chickadee is recovering from a run in with a window. It flew away after about an hour. I may use this as an excuse next time Becky asks me to clean the windows.

  15. Hello everyone! How's your week up to now?...My 9 years old dog, Bobbie, has fully recovered from a serious attack by a bull-terrier a few months ago. I am really grateful that she she is the "Old Bobbie" that we knew! She loves coming with us to the beach, take a swim and do some crazy stuff on the sand :)) Take care my friends!

  21. [​IMG]Great shots as usual and it is the variety that I find most appealing in this forum. Panayotis "Bobbie 2' brought a smile - "happiness personified".
    I recently made a small trip to Florida and mine is an interior shot at Miami airport on my way to pick up a rental car.

  33. Good Wednesday to you all. My shot is of the bark of a Madrone tree, peeling off to expose newer growth.

  34. What raised my interest last week? Fireworks, of course! I've got many more traditional fireworks shots,
    but here's one of a few 5" shells ready to be hand-fired.

  37. Wonderful Wednesday everyone ! Lil your water lily is stunning. Panayotis glad that Bobbie is recovered. Wonderful shots of her, love the last 2 .

  42. Storm over the ocean from the second floor balcony of a friends condo in Garden City, South Carolina. I heard no thunder and you can see stars on either side of the clouds. I did not alter or enhance the colors. The picture is pretty much what we saw.

  43. What caught my attention? How about an airplane crashing pretty much in my back yard? While I didn't see the crash, I ran down to SFO to check out the traffic. With runways 28L and 28R closed, we got to see takeoffs *and* landings on 19L. This is pretty unusual, especially for big jets, because it's a short runway that faces a heavily populated area. This is great for photography because you can get much, much closer to 19L than to either of the 28s.
    Granted, I don't have any particularly long lenses so I got to crop everything quite heavily.
    This is how close you can get to 19L/1R (it's like a petting zoo for airplane buffs):

  56. Happy belated Wednesday everybody. I'm into going through my spider shots, so here's one from a few years back that was on a basketball net. It could be an Elvis song, "All Wrapped Up"

  57. Wonderful shots everyone & may I say, Panayotis Papadopoulos I'm so happy to read that Bobbie's doing well & is back going to the beach with you. Many more healthy years wished for the sweet little one.
