Holy Crap, where did the year go to?

Well, this is it. I have completed my first Project 366 and was able to publish one photo per day for each day in 2012. I actually shot a ton more, but I was able to maintain the pace, and I did not have a single photo-free day this year.

The 2012 project is going to remain here for archival purposes, since this format is much easier for this kind of content than say, trying to find all of my 2012 entries in Google Plus or Flickr.

And yes, I am participating on Project 365 for 2013.

350: Outside

The rig is a Sony NEX-7, Tokina AT-X SD 2.8/80-200 for Canon FD and an AmazonBasics 60" tripod. The original intention was to try to get a digital zoom shot, which would had yielded 200mm x 1.5 crop x 10X digital zoom = 3000mm equivalent shot. I thought the problem was going to be vibrations, so I was using a remote, but I was wrong.

The problem was that while the $30 is great with almost everything I own, it really doesn't like that big ass Tokina because it is simply too heavy.

That's when I noticed that the rig itself actually looked more interesting than what I was trying to shoot with it, which made me glad that I didn't ditch my NEX-C3 when I got the NEX-7.
