After our morning run, dad and I set our minds to painting the wood around the house.
I’ll woof you that it’s not much fun, and it took quite a bit of time.
So-o-o, what a pleasant surprise after the work was done to have the FedEx truck stop and drop off a new Sony A7rII. Dad and I charged up the battery and then charged up to the airport with the top of the line Sony camera in the camera bag. I hooked up the Sony 90mm macro lens for our first photo shoot with the camera.
It did quite well, even with the usual Edgemont afternoon wind.
Really, though, what does one do with a 42 megapixel camera? I had to ponder that question.
Lucky for us the BNSF yard had some action, so we could try the camera out on trains.
How about this new Tier 4 GE locomotive?
I could smell the new paint on this one. It’s a lucky find for the first day with the Sony A7rII.
In the evening, we went over to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. Mom wanted to spend some time with the Spanish Mustangs and take some pictures of them with her new Lytro Illum camera. As for me, I asked Hannah to run over to a better spot for some posing. She obliged and ran to the spot that I pointed to.
Does she look great or what?
The one guy missing was Buckshot. While mom kept photographing the other Spanish Mustangs, dad and I called for Buckshot. Ha! That did the trick! Here’s come Buckshot a running!
I was dog tired when we got home.
George had a superlative run on Basset Back Ridge on April 07, 2006.
Dog oh dog, he was in fine shape that spring and always, always looking handsome.
