even more updates…
Well this day I decided to break my macro theme for the month and instead use a shot I took of my new-to-me Mini Cooper S 🙂 (hey I made the rules so I can break them). I’ve always liked these Mini’s, my wife actually has a Clubman, and I’ve been so tempted to drive an S with a stick shift. Well I got my wish, this was actually the first one I test drove and fell in love right away. The normal Cooper is fund to drive don’t get me wrong, but the S with the supercharger and 6 speed standard transmission is basically a go-kart on steroids, I love it. I’ve got a bunch of plans for the car so don’t be surprised to see more shots popping up throughout the year 🙂 (I’ll be lowering it with coilovers by spring b/c I can’t stand the wheelgap).
1/125th = the max flash sync speed of my Nikon FE 35mm camera. I love how they mark it with the red numbers although I wish it had a faster sync of maybe 1/200th or 1/250th since I do like to break out my strobes with it from time to time.
A super close up of an American quarter dollar and the first 2 letters of the word “Liberty”. I was inspired by a friend’s recent shot of a quarter and decided to go as close as possible with all of my extension tubes, a teleconverter, and a reversed 20mm lens (I’ve found this is the largest magnification I can get with my current gear).
Unfortunately I did not win anything on this lottery ticket 😦 I do know if I did win big I already have a few pieces of camera gear I’d treat myself to including a new body, either a D4 or D800e, and some new lenses including the 200mm f/2VR and a 400mm f/2.8 as well as a 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4… I can dream can’t I?
