So I am in the MSP airport. I was able to get an earlier flight out of Manitoba. So instead of hanging out in a tiny airport I was able to spend some time in the awesome MSP airport. There is so much here. I just found a second Snoopy too. Todayâ€™s PAD is that other Snoopy and I took a bonus photo with my QuikPod too. It probably would have been better to have the camera out further, so I am looking forward to my XShot to arrive in the mail. It was shipped yesterday and should be at the house when I get home. The only thing that would be better about this airport would be free Internet access. Really isnâ€™t it time for this to happen across the board?
There is only one flight out to Lincoln, NE and that is unfortunately at 4:55pm. So instead of getting to my destination early I am a bit stuck in the airport. I would have been much more productive in the airport if I had some Internet Access. I am going to catch up on my iPod stuff. I have a ton of Scoble Show podcasts to watch (The man is a podcasting machine!). I am watching one that I had seen before with Kris Krug, he is a pretty fantastic photographer. He has a really interesting set of theories on how to become a better photographer. I have been focusing more on learning about actual photography rather than just shooting pictures. There is so much more I can learn.
I even started looking on Craigâ€™s List for some freelance photography jobs. The problem is that I donâ€™t know how much to charge for services. I need equipment (or rather, want equipment) so I am thinking of charging enough for things like a tripod and a camera backpack. I really want the 18 -135 lens from Nikon or the 18 â€“ 200 lens from Sigma. I was reading the PCPhoto magazine that I got for buying my camera and there are so many cool things I would like to have in my arsenal.
You should take a look at this Scoble Show podcast with Kris Krug if you are interested in learning some cool things about photography. He explains things in a very easy and straightforward way. And he tells a very important tip. Take your camera off the automatic setting and play with the settings. That is how you will learn.
Do any of my photographic readers have some favorite photographers and photography websites that they go to for tips?
So I thought I would be done with things to say today after I did my photos in the airport and before I got to Lincoln, Nebraska. I have yet to get any Fiddle Faddle but that is on the docket for tomorrow.What I did find was another public art project. This one is 4 years old. It is called the Tour De Lincoln.
I was walking to dinner tonight and saw this cool looking bike sculpture and since I had my camera with me I stopped and took a picture. I saw that the sign said Tour De Lincoln. But I didn’t really think about any other bikes at the time. I just went to dinner. After dinner I headed back to my hotel and came across 3 more bikes and took pictures of them as well. And when I got back to the hotel I set out to find the website and identify the bikes I had found. I learned about the project and was even able to find a map of where all the bikes are, or rather, were in 2003. Now they are in different locations throughout the city. I plan to take a long walk tomorrow and find as many more of these as I can. Here is a complete list and pictures of all the bikes. There are about 70 of them in all. And here are the four I fond.
I like Lincoln, the full service Marriott that I am in has FREE wireless Internet in the rooms. Take note, you other Full Service Marriotts, this is the way to make your business customer’s happy.
