Solid Footing

On Uneven Ground

The new tripod arrived in the mail today. I sent for it because it has flexible legs that you can attach to just about anything.

I used the old Olympus camera as a prop here so that I could take a picture of the tripod. After those shots, it was time to screw the detachable shoe onto the Lumix and get busy testing this flexible leg tripod.

I am using myself as the subject in these test shots because I was the only subject around at the time. The shots turned out the way I had hoped they would from the different angles.

For this next shot I simply spread the legs of the tripod and set it on a bush.

The Moon and Mt. Lassen were clear and sharp and easy to take pictures of especially with the solid footing of the tripod.

I love this stuff.

When I was filling the gas tank today, I looked between the two gas pumps and could see Mount Lassen in the distance. I took a picture between the two pumps and it paints the picture of being in a little town surrounded by geographical splendor.

After I gassed up the car I drove over to the little empty lot right next to that gray building, (which is a car wash), and took the following picture of Mt. Shasta;

Of course I don’t need a tripod for all the pictures I take and once back home I took hand held pictures of a favorite flower or two.

“How Ya Doin’ Bud?”

As you can see I spent the day immersed in my photography . I even forgot to go take pictures of the Christmas parade, but they’ll probably have another one next year.

I’m not sure what I’ll do for today’s relatively appropriate song because I can’t seem to find anything in the new improved version of YouTube.  I will give it a try and we will see what I come up with.
