Travel Photo: Out Shooting the Dam with an Old Friend
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 got dusted off and taken to Kin Dam today.
The Pentax K3 was mounted on a tripod and, waiting for some birds to fly by.
After a few days of cold weather and rain, it was time to get and get some sun and exercise.
A bit of a chilly breeze started blowing so, I reached in my camera bag for a windbreaker.
That's when, I remembered, I had brought the little Panasonic along.
When, I yanked my jacket out of the bag, the camera went flying and, crashed to the ground.
The poor camera was sent in for a tune-up earlier this year and, came back like brand new.
It cost a few hundred bucks but, I liked that old camera. And, now it's busted, again.
That's what I figured, I deserved anyway. Here's the test photo, I shot.
Exposure: f/5.6 1/500 ISO 100
Focal length: 7MM
Location: Just off HWY 104 standing above the Kin Dam, Okinawa, Japan
Date and Time: DEC 9 2015 3:08PM
A similar shot was taken from the same location with the camera at f/11.
But, dark clouds had rolled into the scene so, it's been digitally disposed of; trash.
And, I will have a big decision to make if, this blog ever hits 2 million views.
For the celebration:
Should I give away the Panasonic or, the Cannon G12 ?
