Pictures from 5/6 and the day before
« on: May 07, 2011, 01:04:10 pm »
Just wanted to share my joy of using my new camera, my Panasonic Lumix ZS7, and the fun I had in taking bus and rail pictures.

May 5th - Just bus photos, since I was around Flatbush Avenue after visiting Brooklyn College. Here's one:


Yesterday: Pictures of the subway as I went home from school. Some of them include:


and this (I really didn't expect to see this too, right after I left the F train):


I took a lot more pictures, but I will have to upload them later due to my older brother cursing me out for taking up the bandwidth.
This is why I don't like a lot of MMOs.

Also, a note: Every picture taken above ground in the day is Auto White Balance (AWB). Except unless notified, every picture taken underground is all Custom White Balance, and it took me months of setting the white balance to get one that really captured the lighting in many stations. If you plan to buy the ZS7, expect your results underground to be very different from what you see here.

Thanks!
There is some truth to what you say, as the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 produces pretty clear pictures even at 4000x3000 pixels, and even the online reviews like this camera, so I'm glad I used up $315 for it. But I won't be surprised if SLRs/DSLRs/hybrids can do even better, so I'm planning to buy one of them in the near future.

Here's the entire list of the bus photos that I took around Flatbush Avenue in May 5th. I arranged them in the order that I took them.
The first one is the one shown above, and the rest goes as follows:















After that, the trip ended with me taking the 5 train back home.

Subway photos from May 6th are coming up as I upload them slowly.

And here are my subway photos on the 6th.

So I started by taking the F train. The first picture is shown in the first post.



This is useless as a texture, but if anyone thinks it's useful then sure, go ahead.


Then I miraculously bumped into an R68 G, right after the F left. The fourth picture is the picture of the G at Church Av, also shown in my first post.

Different route bullet on car 2890, B end:


The other route bullet on car 2890, A end:


Took the R68 G all the way to Court Square, where I just took pictures.










From there I transferred to the E and took it to Queens Plaza. The next three photos were taken there:






And then I took the R to my destination.


So far, there are only two sets of R68s that I saw are on the G line.

Damn, I haven't been to the Junction since my high school days. Nice shots.

Thanks for the comments!  :D

I looked through my batch of photos once more and realized that I forgot one more photo, and so I'll end it with this - a better angle of the side view of the R68 G:

This is supposed to be the 10th image on the subway photos list.
