The Library of Congress website offers a multitude of historical images, many with no know restrictions on use. The original 1907 Underwood & Underwood stereograph is titled Photographing New York City – on a slender support 18 stories above pavement of Fifth Avenue. That’s dedication – wearing a suit and tie, slippery formal shoes, and crawling around the girders.

So, when I took this, I was using two different cameras. The first one was my D3X with the 28-300mm lens on a tripod, and that is how I got this one. It’s an HDR from a single RAW.

Not long after this, the buffer filled up and it started to shoot slowly, so I went to my second camera around my neck, the D3S with a 50mm prime. And I got this shot.

My digital camera’s completely dead and my Mamiya’s winder is shot, so you’ll be getting some diggings from the archives until the situation can be rectified.

Chad’s birthday is a wonderful occasion for spending a few days exploring the California coastline [which there's plenty of, it should take the rest of our lives to get to the rest of it].

In 2003, it was down to Cambria and back through Big Sur. We took a brief detour to Morro Bay, home to a large rock [which is actually part of an oddly-aligned inert volcanic system of large rocks].

It also has a rather unique ecological system that’s been ravaged by the local industries, and many, many fearless ground squirrels that seemed to think my toes were chunks of bread.
