One of my favorite hobbies when traveling, as an early riser, is to wander around town shooting at sunrise with nobody cluttering shots. I never had any problems and actually met some interesting people, ie. local storekeepers setting up, etc. The only exception was New Orleans where there were some sketchy characters hanging around the French Quarter. I didn't hang out!

I'm packing for a trip to Amsterdam and know little about the early morning environment. Are there any particular elements I should be aware of (above normal precautions) or areas to avoid? Of course I'll be shooting canals but also some interesting streets and buildings.

Thanks for your help.

Frisch's Big Boy was a staple, especially for KWC students, 50 years ago in Owensboro, Kentucky

Really nice pix. Some don't look like panos. Many people don't care for Rome but I love it with all the charm, variety, and things to see and experience. The traffic, eh but who hasn't dealt with traffic?

I don't like a strap around my neck as it adds additional stress on my already achy neck. For the last ten years or so I use a Spider holster combined with a wrist strap. It shifts the weight to my hips and legs and I can walk for hours without any stress. When the camera is attached to the belt I usually keep my hand/arm on the camera to prevent bumping. My hands are free until the camera is needed and detached in a moment and, with the strap on, I'm ready to shoot. When finished it clips back on the belt in a moment. Very convenient!

I like them both probably the 2nd one more as it has a bit more interest. However, IMO, I don't think the raindrops add anything and would try cloning them out and re-evaluate.

After 42nd St changed hands it lost its good reputation.


Many years ago 47th Street photo (not 42nd St) was a reputable dealer. That was a long, long time ago and they are NOT related.

from now on I'm not taking the battery doors off, i did cause i wanted try a grip?


I don't know what your issue is. I've had to replace the door on a couple of occasions and it was easy. Hold the door at a 45 degree angle and gently pull it straight out, or the opposite if replacing it.

I've always been very interested in macro photography. I now have a new attachment that has a focus stacking function so, I'm now looking for a decent macro lens. Does anyone have any advice?


While you are searching lenses be sure to check out the Tokina 100mm macro. I have one and love it. At the time (6-7 years ago) it was very highly rated and substantially less expensive than all the other majors - including Nikon.

I don't know about now but certainly worth exploring. Good luck.

Beautiful in flight, not so much on the ground. They do a wonderful service for nature.

Everything below the truck's tires is AI generated. I didn't like the parking lot my truck was sitting on, so I added a nice trout stream.


"Cheating?" by whose rules?

My rule is, "Your picture, your rules". End of story.

BTW, beautiful job!
