Street

PBR Louisville

 

I found this cool neon sign at "Live at 4th Street" in Downtown Louisville which is really just a mini outdoor vegas style bar and restaurant district. The internal ND filter in the X100 came in handy on this day as I was traveling for work and didn't have room to bring any gear other than the camera itself and it was super bright and overcast. The X100 is a nice travel camera because it's lightweight, looks awesome and has a huge sensor.

Merry Vespa

Merry Vespa I shot this on a photo walk with the family at Austin's 37th St. "Christmas Lights".  I had my D7000 in tow and my Mom had her D300 while my Brother Shannon and wife Nikki had D5000 and D3100 respectively (its disgusting how much Nikon was in tow).  My wife Stephanie, meanwhile, found herself in the middle of a meandering photowalk and was a good sport to hold a lens once in a while.

 

It was a pretty decent turnout this year in terms of lights but down from years past from what I've heard.  This Vespa was brightly decorated and the owners were hanging out in the front yard to the right which is pretty typical of the other houses on 37th st.
