More photos along old Route 66
Much of the city of Tulsa was built during the Art Deco period in the 1920s and 30s. Some of it can be seen along old Route 66, like this building. I was playing with the Nikon N6006 in the matrix metering mode just to see how it responded. I'm pleased with the results.
This is possibly an old filling station surrounded by newer construction. These steeply pitched roofs are common in both business and residential building throughout Tulsa. Again, since this scene is largely backlit, I wanted to see how the metering handled it.
This is a filling station in Owasso. The exposure worked out well and the autofocus operated properly in the low light.
This one has lots of contrast, making the focusing job easier for the camera.
This is our most senior cat, Mittens, who is about 19 years old. It was taken in the living room as she sat on the arm of the sofa. The lens was probably wide open and the shutter speed was fairly low. The depth of field is very shallow. Mittens doesn't move around much, though I was lucky to catch her awake. At her age, the day consists of eating, dozing in the sun, or sleeping on the sofa.
