Kens Photowalk #2 – Having a One-Lens Day…

Decided to go downtown Manhattan and take some photos with just a 12mm f2.8 Rokinon wide-angle lens on my Canon Rebel T6s DSLR camera. NO OTHER LENSES! This is a manual-focus lens, so – my basic plan was (initially, and only very temporarily, as it turned out!) to shoot in shutter-priority, ISO 200, and set […]

Edinburgh, August 2018 – Pt. 3 of 3 – Days 7 thru 10

YES!! We’re back with the 3rd and final post detailing our incredible trip to Edinburgh, Scotland (or, “EDEN-BERG“, as one friend insists on saying it!!) in August of last year.

Saturday, Sept. 8th, we went (for our third time) to this upstate NY event. This year, unlike our previous visits, we went with a more methodical approach to the venture. 1.

Edinburgh – August, 2018 pt.1/3

THE FLIGHT – Thankfully, the flight (on Delta Airlines) wasn’t fully booked, and so, as soon as the door was closed, we were able to spread out a bit in the seats – a nice blessing when you’re on a 6 hour flight in Coach/Economy! Then, even before taxiing out to the flight-line for takeoff, […]
