Renting a D3S from BorrowLenses

I have a Nikon D3S Review coming soon, but, in the meantime, I am renting the lens from while waiting to buy one! I’m going to use it as a second camera to my D3X, since it is often a good idea to have a second camera around. I haven’t written the full review yet, but I started it a bit, so you can see why I made this decision.

The team from Borrowlenses told me they have a short promotion going on — 10% off rental with the code 2010. It’s like Netflix for camera stuff! I have a review up on the Lens Rental page here.

My Music Playlist

The other night while I was editing photos in front of the class for “bonus time”, I turned on some of my music that I have collected from around the world. People always ask me for that playlist! Well, I have a lot… I think I am going to put them together here soon so you can see too. I’ll get that up and going within the next few days!

Daily Post – La Cremaillere

Ahh, the streets of France. If I could stroll them every night and find a new place to eat, I think I would be forever happy.

Anyone want to go with me? Looks like there are a bunch of seats there. We can just hang out and talk and munch on all kinds of things. But, I warn you, I simply can’t travel with picky eaters. I need adventurous eaters that aren’t easily scared of the unfamiliar. Not that anything in France is too strange… compared my Asian dalliances with live goldfish, durian, fried insects, live octopi, and live flounder. Okay, maybe I don’t need you to be as extreme as me, but I get drained when people around me only want burgers. Maybe this is just me!

  • Just like one would imagine it.

    Thank you.

  • Of course France rocks 😉
    But has everywere in the world we’re not happy forevever. Where did you take this one, in Montmarte ?

  • Bruce

    I love France and I love this pic. What methods/software did you use for this shot? How about camera settings? Thank you so much!

  • a nice and inviting scene. Love the lighting. Sure, I come with you and have dinner as long as it is vegeratian for me (but I do love and eat fish)

  • At last!
    Something to cheer about in Stuck in Customs, bravo! Couldn’t see a simple beautiful street here for a long time. Got bored with architecture and temples.

  • mssmack
  • And propped up with a milk jug?? Very cool shot by the way.

  • Nice photo of the restaurant, beautiful colors, great job, Trey. By the way, I’m not selling my signed print on ebay!!!! I love it to much!!!! Thanks for sharing some more of your adventures, except the part about what you eat in Asia, yuck, lol.

  • Love the colors. My food choices though may be to boring. I couldn’t eat snails…..LOL!

  • Zim


  • Thanks! 🙂

    Bruce – I use HDR – I have a full HDR Tutorial here on the site…. as for EXIF – click through to the Flickr

    Tromat- no this is down in Lyon actually….

  • Who wants picky eaters as friends? I have enough picky eaters in my family already!

    Monmartre is just the place for fine food. I’d taste it with you anytime. It’s been a long time since I’ve been there. Lovely colors on this one.

  • Oh my gosh you are right Patrick!!! hehe – I took a similar photo in Lyon – and now my memory fades!! Thanks!

  • casusan

    Lovely scene Trey – looks like fun!

  • wonderful shot Trey!

  • When you travel, do you check your tripod, or carryon? I carry-on everything, though sometimes I wonder about the tripod. At 500 Euros it aint cheap, but then again, its not all that desirable. Not so concerned with US travel since they let you on with everything, but international carriers aren’t often so allowing…

  • I usually always carry it on – only had 1 problem in many flights… so it usually works!

  • I love how your colors always go so well together. The reds and greens compliment each other, the yellows and blues. It’s also nice that there is no black sky, which can be very boring.

  • Some of that stuff is exotic, but I had durian in the Philippines. Although it looks out of this world, it has a familiar, very good taste. Have you had balut? I had that in the Philippines , cant get too much more exotic than that!

    Great picture – totally perfect subject for HDR. I clicked through to FLICKR to look at the EXIF and I was surprised to see so much information. How did you get your EXIF data to come through the HDR process? Did you blend in an original with the HDR and the EXIF came through with the original? I always have problems getting the EXIF data to survive the HDR processing.

  • Trey,

    I think your newsletter email list has fallen into the wrong hands, or perhaps you’ve got a virus.

    I received an obviously bogus email (claiming to be from a “UPS Manager”) with a zipped attachment (which I did not open). The email was sent to me at an address that I have used exclusively for the stuckincustoms newsletter.

    A little googling on a line of text from the email suggests that the email is an attempt to get me to install the Bredolab trojan onto my computer.

    Thought you would like to know.

    some of them eat hamburgeois 🙂
    great visions!

  • I truly desired to develop a simple remark to express gratitude for you for these precious suggestions you will be showing on this website. My extended internet lookup has when they get home of the evening been recognized with useful ideas to share with my close friends.
