A Day at the Museum

I don't get out much these days - chemo leaves me tired and a little weak but yesterday I went to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum with my Nephew Bryan and Brother-in-law Daniel. I brought my new Canon EOS 1D Mark IV (well not new - but new to me. I bought it from my good friend Michelle who sold it to me for a great price.) Man this thing is fast - at 10 frames per second you can burn through a 16 Gig memory card pretty quick. I think I took over 2500 images during the 5.5 hours we were there (yeah - and only about 100 were worth keeping or not duplicates - typical of my imaging success rate :-)).

My friend and "student" Frank meet us there and based on what he has posted on FB - kicked my arse. The student is now the Master - time for him to leave the nest.

Anyway here are a few of my efforts with the new camera. Most were taken with the 400mm F/2.8 monster - I was unfamiliar with the camera controls and therefore the images are not of my usual caliber. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :-)
