Raleigh's Christmas Parade 2015
If you look closely, you can see Ethan.
This post is a little pastdue... Well it's at least a two weeks overdue, but It's been a little busy around here. These pictures are from the Raleigh Christmas Parade 2016 presented by ShopLocal Raleigh and WRAL-tv. SO, it's kind of fitting that I'm posting this on Small Business Saturday Right? I hope you enjoy. Here's something that I can reveal about myself. I love parades. I feel like it is the heart of a community on display -- for better or for worse. , I enjoyed Shaw University's Marching Band, The Helping Hand Mission Band, the cars, the bikes, the mascots and the clowns. Darth Vader was out there with a candy cane light saber. There was an elderly urban cowboy doing summersaults or tumbles or something. Of course this is North Carolina... so, there were tractors and beauty pageant girls. Then Finally Santa came along... riding high with Mrs. Clause ... Again, Enjoy.
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. Your choice of camera is a very personal one.. and it is sometimes a permanent one. Often times a camera will even outlive it's owner. 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…
