My Favorite Place ( yet again)

 Trying out the new camera.   Last new one was five years ago.  I like to take the new one and do shoots I've done before to see if operationally things have change much.   They haven't... except I have to be much steadier with a higher pixel count.    Kauffman Gardens beckoned today.   It was suppose to be sunny all day but clouds were the norm when I arrived this morning.  

 All shots taken with the Nikon D800.  Closeups were with the Nikon 105mm Macro, wide angles with the Nikon 14-24mm, and medium shots were with the Nikon 70-200mm.  Most all were at ASA 800 to allow for very high shutter speeds as I was hand-holding everything.
Very first picture is multiple images (5) stitched together in Photoshop.

 Love the detail in the new camera.   It has a 36 megapixel, full-sized sensor which means medium format quality in a 35mm body.   It also means it doesn't like camera shake.

 Kendra won Miss Photogenic in her pageant last weekend.   Congratulations....  she is also an aspiring photographer who would like to pursue that as a career....  after high school and college of course.
 Top two are studio shots.  The one below was in my backyard, available light only.   Others were taken at the Colonnade here in Northeast and were also exclusively available light.

 Nikon D3, top two Nikon 105mm Macro,  the rest Nikon 70-200mm.   Indoor shots ASA200, outdoor shots ASA 800.

Tweed Ride in Historic Northeast

Today (Saturday) was the Tweed Ride. Bikes from the turn of the last century on with riders in appropriate garb for the occasion. Ride began at the Colonnade her in Northeast, went up and down Gladstone Boulevard and then by the Reservoir, along Cliff Drive and ended at the Kansas City Museum with a picnic.
