Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements. Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself. This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally. I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime. Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Netley Marsh Steam Rally. A beautiful hot summers day and lots of old steam driven traction engines. Heaven for a photohound.
They do say “The best camera is the one you have with you at the time”. This was taken on a Canon powershot G9. I loved those G cameras.

From Dandelions last week to roses this week. A red roses can also look good in black and white. I took this on a Canon G9 on a pocket tripod, in light from a window the vase was standing beside. “The best camera is the one you have with you.” rings true

While testing an old manual Canon 55mm f/1.2 lens on a recently acquired Sony Nex-5T, my first foray into mirror less cameras, this rose in our garden seemed the only color around on a gloomy fall evening here on Long Island. I think the lens did a good wide open and manual photography brings me great joy specially shooting in monochrome.
