Two Dogs & a GPS #2

January 2nd, 2014

#2

Quick confession, didn’t take the dogs and didn’t need the GPS, but it was a bit of an adventure anyway. I also think it’s typical that the second post breaks the premise.

The City of Boise has recently updated and beautified the Capitol Bridge. I have been in love with this bridge since I was a boy. I have several historic postcards of it and I have many, many, photographs. From the river, in the river, from 8th street, upstream and down.

Woke up and headed out before sunrise, decided to try a long exposure of the river and the bridge. Been fascinated of late with the smooth shimmery water shots from Kieth Walklett and Dan Mottaz.

Parked in the tiny lot next to the bridge off of 8th. It was cold, the fog had lifted and I set out to see what I could find. 1st down to the rivers edge. The fowl were none to happy with me for waking them up. The first rays of sun where peeking to cast a warm glow on the water. Took a few, but didn’t really find much. Decided to head up to the old 8th street bridge.

Bingo! The sun was almost up and the sky was a lovely pink. Worked the shutter speeds up and down and got what I think is a great image. May have to combine a couple to make sky and the bridge both glow. Just for grins, I walked up and took a couple of “close ups” to see if I could get a little better angle and a new perspective. Not much there either.

Here are the results. Feel free to comment, share, whatever.

Two dogs and a GPS

December 28th, 2013

Hi all, this is the 1st of a new blog project. Plan to post the adventure of Kloi, the new dog Dasher and our travels and travails.

Two dogs and a GPS blog

klo-and-dash

After a quick morning cuppa coffee from Dawson Taylor downtown I decided to test out the new little black dog in the car. So, we’re headed to Wieser Idaho. To see if we can find something interesting to shoot. We’re out chasing photos. Me, two dogs and a GPS

So far it is Fog, fog everywhere. Not much going on in Payette so I grabbed a burger at the Arctic Circle and headed north.

Wieser is a beautiful little Idaho town. Most of the downtowns older building are still there, although like most smaller american towns many are empty. Wandered for a bit, didn’t really find anything. Often when ¬†you’re a photographer you look and chase and catch absolutely nothing.

Today I did get a couple of interesting shots of the old UP depot, but mostly the weather shut us out.

However the trip was a great success the little black dog and medium-size maybe big yellow dog got along great. They’re both good car dogs, and will be chasing many photos together. Overall not a bad day for two dogs and a GPS.
