July 21, 2008-The good old days

Hello faithful reader.

I managed to make the plowing demo at the Lewis farm in Markham Ontario on July 17 this year. I have not
been able to attend this since 2004, and was very glad to be able to make this years event. In 2004, they had out for use, two or maybe three pieces of equipment.
I guess over the past few years, they have been able to fix up several more pieces and this year used seven or eight pieces.

This is a local farm owner, that has a petting farm and also trains teams of heavy horses for wagon pulling, carrages etc.

I love this old stuff.

Hope you enjoy this shot.

Thanks for listening.

Thursday July 3, 2008- New Camera fun

Hello faithful reader.

Well a week or so ago, i managed to snag an IR converted Canon G3 from Eekbay.
Up until now, my IR was done via the Pentax istD and a Hoya R72 filter, tripod etc, etc.Proior to this, i shot about a dozen or so rolls of IR Kodak film, which got my feet wet, and interested in this medium.

This little G3 is a great IR tool. The person that converted the camera had set up a custom WB which works well. If shooting in the custom WB or B&W modes, the live view lets you see what the photo will actually look like before shooting. If i want the shadow in a slightly different spot, i can see were it will be, as an IR photo, not a colour version. Camera has all of the things i need, Tv, Av, Manual etc modes.

This i love.

Anyway, was out the other day and shot a few around town.

This is in a small parkette downtown Stouffville

Hope you like it, there will be more.

Thanks for listening
