Weekly Email - 9-30-11 -Zoom In

This week while biking down the Hudson river path I brought a small point n shoot camera and mounted it on a super clamp on the handlebars.  There is a neat feature in some of the new cameras which allows you to set the camera to automatically shoot a photo when the camera "sees" a smile in the frame.  So I decided to set it and ride down the path and every now and then I'd look down for a shot and smile.  Now as much as I know you'd like to see the 27 photos looking up my nose - I've decided to focus on the images with the camera after I stopped for a sunset view across to New Jersey.  I just wanted to mention the smile feature and perhaps you can use it in your images - great for a family portrait since it will keep shooting as long as you give it a smile.

The images here were shot from NYC looking over to Hoboken NJ.  The F550 I used has a 15x zoom which is quite common in today's cameras.  So you can really appreciate the zoom distance from a mile away.  You can spot the red top of the PATH station across the water in the wide angle shot.
The moon made an appearance over Jersey City as well.
