Week 43 – Dedication

This week covers the dedication of my FD’s new ladder truck. We’ve developed a tradition where each new apparatus carries the name of a past member or members. Ladder 1 is the first all-new aerial ladder the department has ever owned, and it carries the name of Senator Cornelius Haley who was instrumental in the founding of the RFD back in 1927.

Alas I made 2 mistakes this week. Firstly I used a lens from my wife’s digital Nikon on my N65. Although the mounts align, the lens does not have “full frame” coverage. The result is a strongly vignetted fish-eye effect and a slightly missed focus point. Secondly I handed the camera to a family member so that I could join in the group photo. She assumed it was digital and wasted half the roll on multiple versions of the same image. Grrrr.

I am happy with the images I did get. Enjoy.
