Default Chrysler Building

Hi,

The gray cleared out for a while yesterday, so I went down to 42nd Street with my D60, 16-35, and 100-400. I found the Chrysler Building
to be rather cooperative. Here are 2 pix from my gallery, and the link to the rest of it. If you like this great Art Deco building, I hope you'll enjoy my pix.





Here's the link. Feel free to browse my other galleries.

This may sound silly but I am serious. Are you laying down to take some of these shots on the link?

Nope! You know the little hook on the bottom of the tripod centerpost? I hang upside down from that! :-)

Actually, for some of these I do have to get down and kneel, because my widest lens (16mm) still works like a 25mm lens on the D60. The two pix here, though, were taken standing up, with the 100-400mm lens, from about a block away from the building.

By the way, the Coolpix cameras that I graduated made shots like that easy, with the rotating lens module.

Makes you wonder why Nikon dropped the technology. The c5050 has a moveable lcd which should makes the shot easier.

Duh! I have Canon's angle finder, which would have made the shots much easier, and I didn't even think of it until your reply. Oh, well, next time.

Hi Walter...

Wonderful angles on your Chrysler photos!

I am curious about the plethora of
spindly appendages in your close
up of the Chrysler.

Are they lightning arrestors or perhaps
all "upper" residents want to be able to "pull
in" Oprah easily .

I don't know, but they look like transmitting antennas to me, in the UHF range, possibly.

They wouldn't be lightning arrestors, under that big metal spire. The building itself is a lightning arretor!

Great pic! I have always admired that building because of the art
decco top.

Thanks,


Jim

Nice gallery Walter. Someday, I've gotta see New York. It must be quite a city.
