[Photography] Tripod of Doom


Bridge by Night
Originally uploaded by RainPacket.
So, I did finally assemble the Tripod of Doom (after several months of bargain-hunting the pieces). Went out this past weekend and took some pictures (and even a short video) with the 5D2 and the tripod. Of course, I'd been sick, thought I was better, and then went out in the cold to shoot and got myself sick as a dog again. (Sicker than before, even. Ugh.)

This shot is definitely going into the photography show I'll be doing several months from now. I may finally have gotten the 'definitive' Aurora Bridge shot I've been trying to get for three years.

In more sober news, one of my aunt's two Aussie shepherds had to be put to sleep on Tuesday. She was old, and just every bit of her body had started to fail. She wasn't in pain, but she wasn't able to move around or do anything either. The vet makes house calls, so came and put her to sleep at home, so she would drift off in familiar surroundings, with her sister and family around her.

Still, always a somber thing to say goodbye to a beloved pet.

bummer about the shepherd....

Poked about a bit at your photostream. Really like Moonlit... I've found that a lot of times backing off a stop or two in funky lighting really does wonders for it. Lets the contrast come up.
