The player is gone. It’s the end of an era

I feel like an NFL team’s operations manager trading a sentimental fan-favorite  who’s gone past his prime.  For five years my Sony Alpha 350 had delivered consistently good results under difficult conditions and mediocre coaching without a single day on the disabled list.  Sadly, he’s technologically over the hill and it’s time to move on.  I  shipped him off to his new owner today.

Yesterday, perhaps 2 hours before sunset, I stopped by Philippe Park on the shores of Tampa Bay for one last shoot.  These are the only two keepers from that effort. Even as I adjusted the curves in Photoshop, I was wondering if the new player with in-camera HDR wouldn’t have done better.  It’s been real guy, but hey, business is business.   Thanks for the memories.  Click images to enlarge.

    Pictures in the park are wonderful, I have enjoyed many great hours there. We use to take our grandson when he was little there almost every week. These pictures bring back good memories…..Joan
