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.
The clouds were just right this evening for using my 10 stop ND filter on the Canon (I haven’t completely abandoned that camera!). As for a subject, I figured one of Winnipeg’s old brick buildings was suitable enough. This was the rather dramatic result. Perhaps a bit eerie, actually!
