I didn’t get around to doing too much this summer because of school, but I did snap a couple of pretty cool pictures with an old Nikon Coolpix. Here’s one of a narly banana spider my sister found:
I managed to spend some time surf casting with my Dad too and we got to play around with his awesome early 2000’s Alvey. It’s sweet looking and worked like a charm:
I’m hoping I can get in some time at the canal while the stripers are still running, so we’ll see how that goes. And to end, a picture of me getting a few more casts in before dusk:
For an old camera, the Nikon worked exceptionally well. If you’re in the market for something used, I’ve found similar Nikons (~16MP) for under $40 on eBay. I definitely recommend having a camera separate from your phone.
