I just had one of those “duh” moments. I was so gung ho to join groups on Flickr to get my images seen by more people that I didn’t read the fine print on one of them, the Nikon Digital Learning Center group. Once I did I quickly got out!
I posted a new set of images on my Flickr page from a recent family mini vacation up the north shore to Split Rock Lighthouse here in Minnesota. I took my Nikon D50 that was converted to shoot only Infrared since my point and shoot was in the shop for repairs, and boy was that the right choice!

I found out the hard way that the D3, while the best digital camera I have owned, needs to be cleaned routinly like I never did with my other digicams.
I leaned this lesson after spending an extra hour spot cleaning over 85 images after a recent job. Consider this your wake up call…
The web is a curious thing. Post or links that have been long forgotten seem to spring to life at certain times of the year, or so it seems.
In springtime, the rekindled love of infrared photography blooms and the masses search out content in droves to satisfy this need.
UPDATE – this lens is now for sale. $900.00 + SOLD 12/1/08.
I have a thing about my Nikons… no, not that kind of thing! I just love the craftsmanship and the name and the history that comes with it. Since I got into photography back in 1983, Nikon has been to me what Mercedes is to a car buff.
The 50-300mm f4.5 zoom is one of those past beauties that still delivers today. Yes, it is not auto focus. So what, I can still work both my hands AND my eyes. The ED version is the cream of the this lens crop and if you keep your eyes out for one, you too might get lucky to.
Back in June of 2005, I put together a .pdf showing step by step how I setup my WT-2A with my Nikon D2X. I concentrated on infrastructure mode as ad-hoc didn’t really offer me anything that I needed.
Since then, I have helped many folks get theirs up and running. I went so far as to call a chap back in Australia and walk him through it step by step (didn’t have file sharing on in his pref…DOH!). I am by no means a networking guru. I can barely keep my simple home/office setup going, but I put in the time and documented what worked, and soon started getting calls from others for help.
Today was a good day. Good because it is a new year and that is always a good thing, but it was a good day because I started it with a new client.Great Northern Casket Co. is a dealer in, well, caskets. Not a subject most people like to think about, but when the time does come around, these are the folks that sell your casket to the funeral home that you buy to spend eternity in. Ok, maybe not if you have a different sort of religious belief, but let’s not go there…
Well, that sounds a little crass, but I mean that they have a pretty neat job. The part about bringing babies into the world that is. As a father of two, I know of what I speak. Seeing that bundle of life emerge and the begining of this journey of life, well, that is a pretty specail thing.
