That's Chris on the roof of Dan Coogan's pickup. I was to photograph the Kiyosakis from the front, while Chris shot down into their Bently convertable. Of course, being the true friend I am, I was ready to photograph Chris if he fell of the roof.

Nice shiny new plant, but the most interesting thing to me was this "biblical" sized rebar-wire "weaving" machine that created the reinforcement mesh for the colossal concrete pipes.
The thing was was at least 20 feet tall; check out the rolling platform stand at the lower left for a sense of scale.

The D3 sounds like Nikon's answer to Canon's MK III; very good news to me! If the D3's high-ISO low noise feature is as good as purported (better than the MK III!), I won't have to make the switch to Canon, which will save me thousands of dollars of investing in new equipment. This would be very good.
Here's a link to Rob Galbraith's site: Nikon D3
It is a very pretty camera, too.

A few days ago I helped Chris Barr cover We Fix Ugly Pools' attempt to break the world-record for the fastest built swimming pool. Bet you didn't know they had a record for that, did you? Me neither.
To cover it, we set up two synchronized cameras on roofs overlooking the pool area and took 4 bracketed shots every 10 minutes. In between climbing a sissor-jack onto the roof to check on a time-lapse camera (wrapped in a ziplock bag and shaded by a gobo), I did the event photography. Got quite a work-out, and sweated like a pig the whole time.
We got to the site at 4am to set up the time-lapse cameras. It was to become a brutally humid & HOT day.
Shooting the gunite:

The Phoenix Fire Dept filled the pool from a hydrant in minutes.
After a beehive of activity and six manic hours later, the pool was full of water and we were spent.

These are 5"x5" crops from 100%:
My D2x at 3200 iso:
Kinda hard to see on the blog, but the color and noise levels from the MKIII is at least three f/stops better than the D2x. Wow. If you shoot in low light alot, like I do, this is very awesome (I know; photographers are weird).

(below) - Some of us hiked to this castle ruin above Durnstien; the views from the top were breathtaking (as was the climb!).
