Friday December 9th, 2016 I grabbed my ancient 6 lb, (pre-1973) Marchioni Brothers Tiltall tripod, design was later sold to Leitz. This is a much sturdier tripod than my Manfrotto 190QCB/222 joystick head. I wanted to try a few stitched panoramic photos and the 3 way pan head on the Tiltall was a better choice. I only carried my Pentax ✩istD SMC-FA 50mm f:1.4 prime lens, and a Canon RS60-E3 electronic release. Spare batteries and CF card. First while waiting for Parliament Hill to light up, I did a Laurier Avenue West view of Ottawa City Hall.

Elgin Street 4 frame panorama.
Parliament Hill 3 frame panorama.
“Rush Hour” vertical time exposure pan.
Christmas Lights, Parliament Hill, Ottawa.

Hopefully I’ll have my new dSLR camera body before they shut off the lights in January 2017.
Happy Holidays to all….
