Hey locals,

https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=13146799#po​st13146799 Here is a thread, so as not to repeat posting pics, of a project I am restarting. I would love commentary on content and concept of a photographic tour of the city. (I am thinking this concept may make a nice book someday.)

Straightening...lol. Every time I straighten the horizon, I hang the picture crooked.

I have thought about going around and photographing a bunch of stuff like that and putting it together in a book so when i move to FL i'll have something to look back on if i feel the need to.

Think it was around 1030 to 11-ish...? **edit, I just checked EXIF, it was 10:08a.m. **

Again, this was a shade #10, I'm going to go to a local welding shop and get different shades and have a full arsenal of cheap ND filters, LOL.

This shade 10, came out to more like a 14 stop I think instead of 10 stop, but hey, whatever works !

A 10 stop ND filter chart I printed off the internet said for a 1/160s = 6.4s shutter with the filter, but i was using between 15-30s in most of my shooting, a couple shots i had to bump my iso higher since i forgot my remote and couldn't use bulb mode.

I personally can't stand fishing there... too crowded for my taste. I like going down south a bit and going to Mamouth Spring in Arkansas or Greers Ferry on the Little Red River.

The Little Red is a great stream if you don't mind john boat, canoe or kayak trout fishing as it's deeper. And the stream below Mamouth Spring is great for waders... and a wide enough stream that you see the real fly rod fishermen. Not like at Meramec Spring where there's barely enough room to just dip your line in the water. And besides that, on a good few different occasions I've been to either of those 2 rivers where my and my fishing buddy were the only 2 the entire weekend ! Had the entire stream to ourselves !!!

So there's my secret, I just gave it away :o But i don't talk to that !@#$% anymore anyways. Back Stabbing Son of a !@%#%#@ !!!!

sorry, had to rant, LOL.

Both neat shots. I may have to try the welding "filter" idea, too.

I haven't had much luck at Meremac before. My faves are Montauk and Bennet Spring. I've never been adventurous enough to seek out my own spot, as I've only been trout fishing half a dozen times. Gotta admit they are crowded places at 6am. However, I find what little skill there is in catching farm-raised trout is exercised at 2pm when the stupid fish have filled the limits of the amatuers. The real fishermen are still hanging around at mid-afternoon casting into nooks and crannies and trying to catch the fish that realize anything unnatural looking leads to the disappearance of another friend. ;)

yeah, i dont like to fish there either, but it works in the winter since its close. I go to montauk in 2 weeks and im pretty pumped for that. i just got back from trout fishing in the smoky mountain and i caught a ton of little brookies, didnt see a single other soul while there. it was stupendious. i dont mind kayaks, i own 2, so they are not an issue and fly fishing out of them isnt nearly as hard as you think, until you start catching gar, that gets interesting.

i honestly dont know how to fly fish myself, lol... I use a ultralite with 2-4 lb test line. But I do like to go to the non-farm raised areas for more of a sport. I know there's is a small hatchery below Mamouth Spring, but it a mile of 2 down river from where i normally fish so i'm not getting the fresh out of the tank fishies. when my kids get older and i have more time to get out, I plan on traveling out more and trying to find those more remote, Natural trout streams, Like my uncle finds and visit, but won't give up his secrets as to their whereabouts... oh well, I'll get it out of him some day.

Catching gar is definitely different. I caught one on the Bourbeuse around Union, MO several years back. I only weighed about 4lbs, but once landed, I was like....now what? I'm not sticking my hand in there. Of course, my pliers were about 100 yds downstream.

Either of you been to Roaring River? I've heard it has great runs for fly fishing because it isn't as heavily forested as the other parks. It's the one in Missouri I haven't made it to...yet.

Here's one from inside The Climatron at MoBot. Would have tacked it on at the end of the previous post, but the editor is giving me fits.

I fished there once a long time ago - you heard right... there are some great runs for fly fishing. But don't worry too much about the trees and being able to cast. As I remember most of the stream was so small and narrow, with a 9 ft. rod, you can just drop the fly in and don't even have to cast! Wish I had pictures, but in that time, I was too much into fishin' to bother with photography!

Roaring river is an AWESOME park! If you can get down there, do two things, 1: stay for a week, 2: take me with you haha. My wife's aunt and uncle live on table rock, so last thanksgiving we house sat for them and i took the drive over to RR. it was definitly worth it. the river is a nice stretch to fish, lots of different types of fishing, the spring is awesome with the huge bluff and the waterfall, plus its one of the first trout hatcherys built in the US by the conservation corp in like 1934 or something. I have a couple pictures from there I can dig up and post, but you dont have much to worry about with back casting.


Im going to try and get to the General Grant historical site this weekend across from Grants Farm. there is all kinds of neat stuff back behind the barn, couple houses and sheds, and its free! i figured the leaves are changing now so it might make for good photos.
