One of my favorite rides EVER! I remember riding this ride back in the mid 1970′s at the county fair and to get to ride it again was fantastic!

Black and White Tuesday: Carnival

Posted in Black and White Photography, Nikon D7000, Photography, Sigma 18-200mm with tags , , , , , on April 22, 2014 by Ed

I had the most fun in a long time on Sunday, I found a small carnival in an old K-Mart parking lot and I just had to stop for a few shots. Well, 6 hours later I finally left, I just had to wait for the sun to go down and the lights come on…more on the night shots tomorrow and Thursday. It was like being a kid again..:-)

Macro Monday: Silver Coins

Posted in Macro Monday, Macro Photography, Nikon D7000, Photography, Sigma 105mm Macro Lens with tags , , , on April 21, 2014 by Ed

Every year for my Birthday my dad sends me a new silver coin or two, or three. I’ve been a coin collector of sorts since I can remember. Most of my collection are ancient roman or greek coins but I do have a nice collection of 300-400 year old english coins and of course my silver dollar collection. Mostly Morgan dollars I also have a complete set of Walking Liberty dollars from 1984 to present. So for todays pics I did some macros of the front and back of my latest Walking Liberty dollar and a new find…. the Angel Coin, one ounce silver made on the Isle of Mann off the coast of England, its pretty cool and the detail is excellent.
First the Walking Liberty front and back.

We have some tomato bisq with smoked gouda cheese. some tasty Croatian pasteries, my mom’s famous stuffed bell pepper on a bed of wild rice and stuffed with a nice beef mix and topped with a slice of tomato and chedder cheese. and for good measure 2 night shots of Qudoba’s mexican grill and Fazzoli’s Italian fast food….

I took these 3 years ago on this day on the Tellico River in Tennessee, while I’m not there this year I hope to get to see them at the end of the month when I get home again and get to spend a day in my favorite place..:-)
