Good Morning G+!

+Barry Wilkinson - my front yard again.  :-)  

Every year my wife gets flowers for all of the planter barrels around our house.  Except the one on the corner.  That one she leaves to my "vision."  This is from my "vision barrel" this year.

Please Pass On To Google...

Is It Just Me?

Or has G+ growth gone to pot since they ceased circle sharing?  This graph is from my "profile."  On May 12, I was at 87357 and growing at about 600 per week.  since then I have gained 717 followers or about 120 per week.  This is a significant difference!

Many thanks to circlecount.com  +CircleCount for their spiffy graphs!

BNSF Taconite Train

The cars look empty, but Taconite (iron ore) is quite heavy.  Each car is loaded to about 1/3...  You can tell how heavy the train is, it is pulled by BNSF 6607 (ES44C4) and CREX 1326 (ES44AC) and pushed by BNSF 6101 (ES44AC).  That's 13,200 horsepower...

There is a steel plant in Newport, MN and I presume that's where this load is going.

Happy Father's Day!

My father was born January 16, 1924 and died June 9, 1993.  Obviously, I didn't take some of these photos...  :-)  Except for the commercial photo of dad and his mom, the childhood and youth photos were taken by my grandmother.

He's the only person I ever knew that quit cigarettes cold turkey.  He was swimming at a local lake and discovered that he could no longer breath as he once did.  He got out of the water, went over to his towel took his pack of Camels and threw it in the trash can.  When he got home he threw away the rest of the carton and never touched them again.  Getting away from alcohol (another vice picked up in the army) wasn't as easy...

Dad taught me planning and execution of projects, perseverance and independence.  He also taught me a few choice words when his projects flopped - words I try not to usetoday..... mehr »

Dad taught me planning and execution of projects, perseverance and independence.  He also taught me a few choice words when his projects flopped - words I try not to use today...  But he always persevered and the projects worked beautifully - eventually.

Dad loved boats and cars.  Make that old boats and cars which became his "projects."  I "helped" dad pull a V8 engine from an old Checker cab and rebuild it.  That project taught me that sometimes there are extra parts left over at the end of the job - and it still ran great.

Dad's home repairs were legendary.  Although I learned a lesson about such things... Always send your wife out shopping when you are doing home repairs.  It's a bit like sausage making... you may love the result but the process can be disgusting...  :-D

Here's to you dad.  I still love you and miss you.

Trains - June 1977

The Mississippi Street tower shown in these photos is long gone.  A massive new bridge on I-35E just north of St. Paul is currently being constructed where it used to stand.

The steam locomotive was at the St. Paul Como Zoo but is currently partially renovated at the "Jackson Street Roundhouse" museum.  The renovation stalled when it was found that the frame and axles would have to be modified to use roller bearings or the engine would never be allowed to steam on "the main line."

Pioneer grave, Rebecca Winters, Nebraska, USA

Rebecca Winters was a pioneer on the "Mormon Trail" that paralleled the Oregon Trail on the other side of the Platte River.  There is a picture of the historical marker in this album that explains the circumstances of her life and death.

Trail life was hard.  Over the years of pioneer migration on the Oregon trail it was estimated that there were on average 5 graves per mile along the trail.  If they were spread out evenly, that would be a grave every 300 meters.  In fact, many of the deceased were brought to landmarks, forts or trading posts and buried there.  See the pioneer gravesite in my "Robidoux Pass, NE" album at:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/103615658752773745617/photos/103615658752773745617/albums/6155501390984222817

"First Light" 50mm/f1.4 AF-D Nikkor Lens
                      - and -
Four Shot Panorama

I got a new (used) lens on Ebay this week.  It's the 50mm/f1.4 AF-D Nikkor.  'Why did I get the older "D" model instead of the newer "G?"' I hear you ask...

The D has faster focusing with the screw mechanism in the camera, it has better optics and it's smaller and takes the same filter size as many of my other lenses.  Additionally, although not specified with this lens, the HS-1 lens shade works fine.

The G lens has the sexy in-lens motor and a higher price tag.

Winner?  Obviously in my book bag it's the Nikon "D."  At least for this lens.

But you say - "That looks more like a 35mm shot!"

I got a new (used) lens on Ebay this week.  It's the 50mm/f1.4 AF-D Nikkor.  'Why did I get the older "D" model instead of the newer "G?"' I hear you ask...

The D has faster focusing with the screw mechanism in the camera, it has better optics and it's smaller and takes the same filter size as many of my other lenses.  Additionally, although not specified with this lens, the HS-1 lens shade works fine.

The G lens has the sexy in-lens motor and a higher price tag.

Winner?  Obviously in my book bag it's the Nikon "D."  At least for this lens.

But you say - "That looks more like a 35mm shot!"

Actually it is 4 50mm shots spliced together.  I let the autofocus grab the downtown skyline and then without changing anything but the autofocus switch I took 4 overlapping manual exposures.  It's important to use manual exposure because if you don't, it is possible for there to be different exposures in each shot - not good when you stitch them together.

The stitching software is good old Microsoft ICE.  The old 1.4.4.0 version, not that new thing that is so "improved" that I can't get it to work right.

This is a 50% version of the stitch - the full version is too big to be uploaded to G+!  On the large version I can read the GATX reporting marks on the front of the blue locomotive.  Can't quite read the unit number on either the stitch or the original - not enough pixels.  

Gotta get a bigger camera!  

Don't tell my wife...
