Behind The Lens

I took this photo at Pappy Boyington Field in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Just a nice day with cloudy skies.
Sony Nex- 6 with a 16-50mm lens, handheld.
This was an event at the small local airport where three World War II bombers were on display. About 100 people milled around, enjoying the history. I believe this was a B-17. A really poignant aspect of this event was seeing the veterans, now in their 90's, come out in their walkers to see the planes.
I used a few of the sliders on Apple's Photos, primarily contrast. I also used an in-camera HDR setting.
In my camera bag
Two Sonys - a6000 and Nex-6. I carry the following lenses: 16-50mm, 14mm, 55-210mm and fish-eye. I also carry a few extra batteries and memory cards, along with some cleaning materials. I rarely use a tripod but do carry a bean bag occasionally.
I would advise people to check their local "events' calendars and GO to the multitude of things that are going on. Don't be limited by particular types of events that may be of great interest to you. Go to the ones that you may have never thought of before. EXPLORE new activities and adventures.
