A BLAST from the past-

These are some of the first site posts and writings I ever put here. I apologize for the errors in past articles--I am still working that out. There are over 700 pictures in my site as of 2011 and countless articles. Originally it was confusing and difficult to get it figured out. As of this year I began re-editing the 2005 articles. --added 10/9/2011

Remember the "all pictures" side bar. Just click on the dates themselves
The above picture was taken with a very antiquated Argus DC2000. A 640x480 (0.32mp I think) only camera had 3.3mb memory, you get only about 12-16 shots, and typical of late 90s cameras it's got a shutter lag of measured in seconds. Still, it has an LCD display to tell you how much memory, battery power, and mode it's in--as well as a macro mode and flash. This camera was made before USB, and in order to use it I had have a backwards converter. I am an antique maniac. I really enjoy learning about ancient technologies and methods of doing things. I like the new stuff too. But I really like antiques of all kinds. I was going to do a mirror shot--and put a picture into my profile but I have not figured out how to do that yet.

These are some more recent technology pictures. I am putting together a package of some really good shots here and below in the next post. I have learned a lot since I took these shots without a digital SLR. One thing about photography is there is always something to learn. It's interesting to be able to go back and see the old pictures and compair them to how I could or would do it now. My lighting problems, my lack of knowledge about so many things in photography but incredibly I still nailed a few good shots.

I am the kind of hombre who loves to try fresh stuff. Right now I am building my hold pv panels. I am managing it all alone without the help of my men. I am using the net as the only way to acheive this. I stumbled upon a very amazing website that explains how to make solar panels and so on. The place explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure about how correct the data given there iz. If some experts over here who have xp with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the page it will be awesome and I'd extremely treasure it, cauze I really passion [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. You people are the best.

I'm not sure why you left this on my site. I know some things about photovoltaic solar panels and a bit about how to use them however.. if your interested in commercial advice about advanced systems I'm not the person to talk to. If you just want to charge a car battery with a set of home-made panels from Radio Shack cells then let me know and I can tell you the basics. Each cell runs about .5 volts and so you need a fair number of them. Charging a battery for use during the night time is not hard but must be done right. If not.. please note that this site is about PHOTOGRAPHY and not commercial solar systems for homes.. you may have posted on the wrong site. My best advice to you is google for info on solar devices.

If you are asking a question please only ask questions in context with the articles in this site and or information in this site I've posted. This is not an open forum for ads or questions about anything. I get slammed with ads about once a week claiming to be comments.. sometimes they are very lame and are explicit and really get on my nerves. This is a FAMILY website! Anyways..with that of luck on your solar project.
