Technical and home made photography stuff!

Day 263

One of the camera modes on my cellphone is a “rolling” panorama…the camera will make a really wide photo while you swing it from one side to another.  It works pretty well! Normally…but not today… Click on it a couple of times to enlarge it…if you dare.  BACK to return!   That red blotch on […]

Day 246

The family traveled up to Kalispell this weekend.  Lugwrench is attending Woodbadge, an advanced leadership course for adult Boy Scouters, near Big Fork and the family took the occasion to visit with the Dailylife Grandparents! This is another technique using a slow shutter speed.  These are between 1/10th and 1/15th of a second. This effect […]

Day 245

The family traveled up to Kalispell this weekend.  Lugwrench is attending Woodbadge, an advanced leadership course for adult Boy Scouters, near Big Fork and the family took the occasion to visit with the Dailylife Grandparents! Ever have on of those days that started okay, but then everything started moving on you? !!! This is done […]

Day 230

A blast from the past: these are from from a vacation we took in 2003.  This was April something or other, in the Valley of Fire, just outside of Las Vegas.  The Dailylife Wife is beside our 2000 Honda Odyssey minivan. An eight photo panorama, from my first digital camera, a Kodak DC3200.  Images were […]

Day 226

(I just noticed the photos here are all labeled for day 227…they are really Day 226’s…) I took a walk along the River’s Edge Trail today.  I decided to try the panorama feature on my cellphone’s camera.  I usually just take several photos and stitch them together, but I thought I’d try it this way. […]

Day 203

These are my photos (in this and the previous post) from Thursday night’s Camera Club outing to Gibson Park here in Great Falls. Except for two, I used only vintage lenses; they are lenses that we used long ago with film cameras, that have generally passed out of use (and any real value on eBay!), […]

Day 201: Last of the Eclipse…?

Some of Toots’ photos…the ones with the UFOs… * **   *** **** ***** **** *** **   Hmmm…I think we need to investigate further.  The next one is from Texas to New England in 2024… ROAD TRIP! ~Curtis in Idaho! {!-{>

Day 200

Morte miscellaneous stuff from the Day of the Eclipse! On the road WAY too early! Say… …there is a budding astrophotographer in there somewhere…! Our neighbors. Dusty Feet to be. More dusty feet to be. So the Eclipse, or at least Totality, is done.  People are leaving before the Eclipse is over.  I can understand […]

Day 199: A few more Miscellaneous from Toots!

3D Tumbleweed to be.   Rusty! Dusty! Dusty 2! Ummm…there may be a pattern here…   Yup.  You can tell Toots is a member of the Great Falls Camera Club: If it is rusty get a photo of it!  I think it is the Club Motto; I am pretty sure it is in the By-Laws… […]
