Well, the item I needed to get the photos from the Nikon Z5 onto the MacBook finally showed up this afternoon. What do you think of the photos? They are of a place you’ve probably seen before in this space. I had a great 14-mile bike ride today too, sunshine and 69 is the perfect temperature for biking.
It still seems odd to me to see Christmas trees and other decorations surrounded by palm trees and no snow. I guess a lifetime of northern living stays with you. It was a great day to ride, but another ten degrees would be nicer. 61 degrees can still generate a windchill factor believe it or not. These are iPhone 15 photos, I haven’t got to setting up the new Nikon I picked up yesterday.
Just go with the flow here, don’t fight it, and do let the crazy and aggressive drivers pass you by. Helpful tips from a Vegas local who knows the ropes of driving here. It’s even worse in California. The battery for the new Nikon Z5 is still charging, even after an abbreviated bike ride this afternoon, more to come on that!
Photos via the iPhone 15 and the Prisma app.
Well, I knew this time would come. I was using a Sony A7C but that camera just couldn’t cut the mustard. I picked this brand-new beauty up late this morning and haven’t used it yet because the battery was completely discharged. I look forward to getting the camera out and about soon, let’s see what it can do.
The Pedego electric bike rolled past two thousand miles during today’s 12-mile ride, which is the equivalent of riding from Las Vegas to my hometown in Michigan! Not bad for a two-year-old bike. I was going to name this post “Christmas In Tivoli Village” but didn’t obviously.
It was a cool ride but I was dressed just enough to handle the very small wind chill factor. How about that Christmas Tree!! It won’t fit in your living room, haha!
These color photos were taken with the Sony A7C this morning and look basically the same as the photos from the iPhone 15 would. Once again, I am considering the days of using a full-body camera could be over for me. A cell phone camera still has limitations such as extreme zoom images being badly pixelated but for the convenience of the iPhone, it might be worth the tradeoff. The last several posts have featured photos taken with the iPhone, did you notice the difference? The dark photo was taken at 10:30 last night.
This poor bird got shoved into the refrigerator yesterday. Still edible? Someone forgot to put the poor thing in a plastic bag… The grayscale and BW photos look horrid! 💀😂 Are chickens actually aliens?
That, and I am gonna be one tried guy for a couple of days. If there were no time zones, perhaps people wouldn’t feel so tired? The photos were taken today of course as the aircraft passed over Lake Mead and its way too-low water level.
The snowy mountains are not the Rockies, I have a few photos of that range too but I don’t know what range this is. In total, I took 300 photos and nine videos on this 18-day trip. If you care to see what is coming up over the next few days then do come back!
