Thanks guys. Pretty simple to shoot, actually. I have a remote shutter cable so I literally just lied on the ground, used my gear bag as a pillow, and had the shutter open for a little while.

Same deal for lightening (though these were shot hand-held, I'll have to try again next storm)

New Toy:

Posted Image

I was looking for a new OBDII reader. The old one I was using was a USB ElmScan which required a laptop and software to pull codes. On top of that the software I had from Elm didn't run on Mac so I had to run a virtualized XP box inside my Mac and bring it out to the car I was working on.

Picked up this "Ultra-Gauge". First off, not bad on price, $79 shipped, and it has a 9 dollar rebate that I have yet to fill out so it'l be $70 in the end. It will read codes and clear them. but the best part is when you'e not using it to pull codes you can use it as a gauge to display whatever OBDII value you can get from the interface. Unfortunately the options are a little limited, but I like having my IAT displayed that way next time my aftercooler pump conks out I might actually notice :). The display is a little washed out in the pics, but it's actually very easy to read in both night and day.

Interesting little piece of hardware and now I have a very portable OBD code reader.

Very nice toy! Tempting to pick one up at that price. That's really good and able to customize your display/set alarms etc. that's very cool.

Yeah the alarms are kind of neat except there's not too much to watch that I can think of. Primarily mine will be used for IAT and engine temp, I'll probably configure an alarm for both. Other stuff like "Engine load" and the O2 sensor voltages.. not so interesting.

Since I've had it setup I noticed interesting intake air temp behaviors. Basically if I am cruising... say 30mph with air moving through the car the IAT's are pretty stable. However I noticed that if I get off throttle and coast the temps creep up fairly quickly depsite the fact that the car is still moving at a decent clip. Others have discussed it here and I believe the general concensus is that on a supercharged setup the diverter valve vents the compressed hotter air back into the intake pipe. Rather than switching to a bov I think I'm going to just unplug the diverter, cap the hole and allow it to vent openly. It'll be interesting to see exactly how the IAT's are affected.

My fiance just picked up a Nikon D5000. I was playing around with it. Actually my first time playing around with a SLR camera and it's so much different than a normal point and shoot.

Taken with the point and shoot and can't see what I really got as I'm on the netbook on the deck.

This is how we spend Saturdays, while you all are golfing, attending car shows/meets, etc. But we wouldn't change it for the world.........well maybe some weekends.

Rick spray painted a couple lawn ornaments. Granddaughter wanted a pink pig. I had an ornament that needed some new paint.

Granddaughter loves peace signs, so she got creative. Grandson was my first assistant.

We ended up in jackets and jeans on our vacation a couple weeks ago. Worked for me. I don't like to be hot when I'm playing tourist.

Lucky man, Scott. Looks like fun!

Shot my first wedding not too long ago. Worked as a second shooter to another photog. What a totally different experience. Fast paced, some stress, but the natural emotion in people is the best.

C&C appreciated.

Whole set:


EDIT: Whoa! That's cool!! ^^

Nice pics, Zomg. One thing I've noticed about wedding shots from day one is all seem to be posed/staged. I realize people want perfect photos. I do wonder if photographers ever sneak off to a corner, with their zoom lens to capture some non staged moments?

Thanks :)

There are posed shots (the majority of which I posted) but happiness is the natural emotion of everyone there. For example, for the pictures of the couple (#1-4) were natural emotion, but they knew they were being photographed. I guess since the couple know they're being photographed all the time, be it by guests or the hired photogs, they just act like the cameras aren't there. Though this was my first time, so I have no idea the tactics of others ;)

These were candid, actually:

The main photog was below and I was caught shooting from above:

Happiness is a natural (and great) emotion, but for some, as soon as the camera comes out, some of the natural emotion goes away. I know some people who totally stiffen up as soon as the camera comes out. I remember being a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. Her mother looked AWFUL in every pic. She is one of those people.

:thumbup: on the candid shots.

When he first walked up to the car he was talking like he may have to because of my exhaust..., then he almost ate the steering wheel when he pulled it in and hit the brakes... I think what "helped" the inspection was that I brought my race jack from home so he could check the front end... After that it was all car talk... didn't check anything else... Easy inspection but a tense first few minutes!

If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking.

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap.
