Welcome to the photo page of dubea.com. I've recently become the proud owner of a Nikon D-70 digital camera. It's been a relearning experience as I was heavily into photography while I was in college. In those days I was a purist and used an Olympus OM-1 35 mm SLR. It was manual everything and I only had a couple of prime lenses.
My how things change. The D-70 is auto everything and has a 17-80 mm zoom lens. Auto focus, auto exposure, etc, etc, etc. Couple this with the added complexity of digital photography and we have quite the learning experience. Add into the mix the SB-800 TTL flash and 70-300 mm zoom I bought before Christmas and wow, information overload. I did buy a 50mm f1.8 prime with the zoom and the flash and it's like going home. Everything becomes familiar again. Walk before you run dubea. Walk before you run.
In saying all that these photos are particularly pedestrian. Nothing outstanding here. There isn't anything here that's going to astound you. This site is for me to learn. HTML, CSS, digital photography, etc. So please be kind.

This is from a trip I took to Landover, MD to visit the office of Phoenix International. I was there to witness a test of the drilling equipment mounted on the back of their ROV, the Nereus II. Unfortunately, the hydraulic system on the ROV had water in it, so the test was postponed.

This is from a return trip I took to Landover, MD to visit the office of Phoenix International. I was there to witness a test of the drilling equipment mounted on the back of their ROV, the Nereus II. The tests went wonderfully, and a nice clean hole was drilled in the limestone in less than an hour.
