Thank-you Levina ~
I put my camera in a bag for the walk home but kept taking it out again and again for flower shots lol. I read the 5Dc is not known for its weather sealing...

We had a cold winter in 2013 with lots of snow and I just loved going out, shooting people, things in the street, the snow. I would come home with my the 5D just about soaked. It did survive everything, but from then on I always carried a small bin bag that I could put around the camera+lens, keep it in place with a rubber band around the lens.. That has worked pretty well for me. Although you can also buy a rain cover in the shop of course. They're not expensive. But my DIY protection works just as well, except it doesn't look as good as those that you buy in the shop. :-P
Here's a shot from that winter with heavy snowfall and with flakes on the lens!

Cool! Do folks ride bikes through the winter, or is it like Canada where we ride a bike during the first snowfall because the snow surprised us and got caught in it riding home from work? :lol:

LOL. It's probably the same here. Some people also just got off their bicycle and walked the rest of the trip home. Although not the young of course, 'cause they can't fall or break anything, now can they? :rolleyes: :lol:

poking around with the camera today.

First shot is of my youngest son Sean's grave, he was an EMT (one of the first responders at the Boston Marathon Bombing) and a Science Teacher, passed away at age 29 almost 3 years ago. The flowers are next to him on my parents.
The plane was towing a banner over Gillette Stadium today. and the baby bunny was about 5 feet away in deep shade

The 5Dc really makes you think as opposed to my 80 and 6D you don't worry as much about ISO etc. with the 5D to me it is like shooting film in the old days, you set the ISO and the TV and AV and watch the meter, may even break out my old light meter

So sorry to hear this. That's gotta be tough. :-(


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

The pain never goes away, I think oh him every day, but you deal with it. I have his camera (point and shoots) on my shelf with all my cameras. I have two other son's one who is a good photographer and gets my "old" camera gear.

I remember the quote that fits "that which does not kill us makes us stronger"
