Just as I took this yesterday, my TPMS light came on, and I spent the rest of my photography day sitting in the waiting area of a tire shop :rolleyes:

What I thought was cruel on my Prius is that when that light came on, it didn't specify which tire was low so I had to check them all.

My current car tells me each tire's pressure individually on my instrument cluster as well as in a monthly report from OnStar.

This is from my November report:

In this case it was no joke. My Honda shows individual tire psi, and I watched the right rear get lower and lower as I headed out of the NWR. I was down to 20 when I got to the shop. They pulled a big nail out and patched er up.

Glad to hear you didn't get stranded. I don't think cars are as easy to change tires on like they used to be. At least back when I was young, cars had a regular tire as a spare, a decent jack and strong bumpers. Now they have donut spare tires, a questionable jack and plastic bumpers that require a removable plug on the side of the car body to insert the jack. And pray you don't stop on a soft shoulder too.

My car doesn't even have a spare. This is the first car I've owned with 'run flat' tires. I shall see how happy I am about that when it comes to replacing one...or all of them. Hopefully, that will be sometime far down the road from now.

My car doesnt have a spare of any description, or a jack for that matter. Its got run flat tyres but if you puncture them they require replacement and if you run them flat they also need replaced. Due to the size of mine (20" and low profile) they are £300 a pop!. Give me a spare and a jack any day of the week

I walked out to my car one day and noticed my neighbors tire low....felt and quickly found the screw in it and left her a note. I think she now thinks I'm a creepy stalker guy

in other news....Fuji GFX50s and Canon 200/1.8 content (sony sensor)

Grabbed a pano head on ebay last week for a pretty good price. Took a little time to get it dialed in for a few different lenses but finally took it out today. Sticky snow last night so I went to a nearby creek and gave it a whirl. Twelve shots (6 x 2 rows). Looks like it stitched pretty nicely. Full res is ~15k x 9k.

I think I'm going to have fun with this. :-D

It's always a pretty scene when you have this type of snow, we only get it early in the season but when it arrives it's a mad dash to capture the scenes, the snow usually melts pretty quickly. Panos can be alot of fun. I shot tons of panos using the RRS multi-row pano kit when camera resolutions wasn't what it is today and super wide angle leneses weren't that great. I still miss shooting that way, there was a slow calming approach to setting up the shot that I miss using super ultra-wides of today.

Yeah, I like the process. I used to do some makeshift panos with my TS-E 90 and doing multi-row is like that turned up a couple notches. The deliberate nature of setting up and shooting is inevitably good for the final product and finally seeing it come together after the computer does its thing is fun.

Funny you should mention the 90 TSE, t's one of the lenses that I used fairly frequently shooting panos, I still miss using that lens.
