Car Show on the Berlin Turnpike:Trucks at Panera Bread
Take a look at my early Father's Day gift. On our way to a little couple's get together. We stopped off in Newington at the Panera Bread on the Berlin Turnpike. i love stopping at these things for the great conversations, great cars, sounds and pictures. This post is just trucks. The owner of the Red 3100 asked me why I liked his truck. It seems like a simple question, right? I thought about it and it's complicated. I think I like t he trucks and cars because i don't see them around anymore and because it reminds me of an older generation. The chevy Nova's remind me of my dad. Nostalgia is an expensive thing.
This is my first experience with and my first review of a Nikon Camera. I used to be, but I'm not longer the type of photographer that tries to argue about which brand is better(Canon, Nikon, Sony, Leica, ... etc.) I don't think this is like the Nintendo/Sega video game console wars of the 80s and 90s. If I had the money and time, there's no telling what brand of camera I'd own. There are a lot of factors for photographers - both professional and casual - to take into account. Style, ease of use, compatibility (with other lenses), low light performance, megapixels and recommendations from bloggers, friends and photographers that they admire.

As you know from some of my previous posts, my dad's camera did outlive my father.. but only by a few years. But, I have been able to fix and use several other older cameras. T…
I don't think I'll get yelled at by too many people for this.. But I decided to take my Camera Completely apart to fix a problem inside. OK, relax -- It was my dad's 20 year old EOS 630. It wasn't a 70D, 5D or 1DX. This camera is the very first SLR that I learned to take pictures on. So its pretty special to me. I''l probably never junk it...or sell it on EBay. So, It's been hanging around in the back of a closet somewhere collecting dust. But the digital camera age isn't the only thing that killed this camera. It's the battery drain issue. You can put a brand new 10 dollar battery in this thing.. and it'll be dead the next morning. I did some research and found a write up below on how to fix it. I also tried to record a video of the fix. This is from ... I've shortened the directions on how to fix it just a tad.. but here you go:
Here's a link to the original directions on PopPhoto This is a common problem on the EOS 630 and th…
