Some time ago, Tony (Vpik01) asked for, or I promised him to post photo's of my bike. So I dusted it off a little bit today, (The dirt from the trip to Italy was still on), and took a couple of shots of my 'work horse'. It's a rather heavy bike, a steel frame of at least 18 kilo's (~40 pounds). I decided to give some counterweight to all the car photo's here, and took all my bikes out (4, of which one has to be sold. Remember, I don't own a car).

Thank you Rinie!! You have satisfied my curiosity! Your 'main bike' looks like it could take you anywhere, and I like the rest of the fleet too. The folding bike looks cool and great for travel. Those Rolhoff Speedhubs seem very popular in Europe, I guess they are available here in the US too but I haven't seen one. Seems like a great alternative to the derailleur. I spent a couple hours this afternoon putting some new, more upright handlebars, replacing the drop bars on my main ride. Pictures will have to wait till my new D600 gets here!

Philippe, it even came with a face cord of firewood for use in the kitchen. What a nice gift for her!

Two months and three days to add 8000 posts to this thread. I keep asking myself how long this can last and it appears there is NO end in sight. I'm not complaining mind you. Actually, I'm a bit in awe of how the conversation evolves with new participants showing up to refresh our enthusiasm. The best advertisement we have, of course, are these lenses that find a way to impress regardless of the camera we mount them on.

Great stuff everyone!

Great looking bikes. Puts my Trek to shame! Can you explain the small bike in the last image. No back wheel?
Scott

EDIT: Rinie, I just answered my question with seeing you second posting of bike porn. It is a folding bike. Very cool!

We get cold from time to time down here. This shot is nearly two years old and looks to be from a big 4 day ice/snow storm we had that immobilized pretty much everything that was bipedal or rear wheel driven. That area was a bit further north from where we are now and got yearly snow/ice of probably an inch per year on average. Where we live now, snow/ice is much less frequent.

Thank you Philippe, Leighton, Ray, Peter, Jose, and Georg for the comments on the lighthouse images. It is beautiful country here "DownEast". Here are a couple harbor views from sunset. Both taken with the trusty 105 2.5.

Typical lobster boats.







Dories the lobstermen use to get to their boats in the harbor.

Scott, nice lobster boats with the 105! Great light there. Gotta love being near the water.

Couple more from last week out with the Nikkormat and 85/1.8 K, shooting Kodak Ektar;

Love the first one Tony, amazing how the bg's almost completely obliterated yet the mind can instantly piece out and identify the flag

Monty: I must say that image has taken an indelible impression on me. Can't stop thinking of the story behind. I'm surprised the couple took no notice of you.

Dean: Oh no, I thought we were all going to visit you in HK. Have you checked out the temple situation in Seven Hills then?

Ya. It's definitely the D4. All you do is click-click-click....

I really like how you back lit her hair!
The detail in the dress it very nice....



Thanks Monty, the studio is very forgiving for many things so MF lenses aren't that big of a deal. Even with longer lenses it's hard to miss focus. Typical sessions I set the camera at F8, 1/250 and ISO 100. Then adjust light settings and positions. I've never done this shot before in my studio, but did do one at a workshop a few years back. It's been a hit so far.

My weekend excursion:

http://hinkey.zenfolio.com/p453710676

No Nikon gear because it's just too large and heavy. Really wished I had my D800 and MF lenses many times, except during the hike in, the climb up to the top, and the hike out!

Wonderful, Ben. The first one is great. I reckon you would have a field day in Sydney on a Sunday morning with people crawling out of clubs !!

OK - still drinking that coffee Leighton??

here's another one from this morning - I'm playing with film presets


Very nice as well ... is this one of the Fuji VSCO presets? 160C?

I have a big decision to make by next May as to whether I move to one of our Sydney offices ... your images don't make the decision any easier as I love HK. Some of our engineering is done in Seven Hills though !! My street images would look a whole lot differnt to yours ... My wife has been checking the inner West suburbs and come up with Ashfield as a possibility but I will have to have a good look next time I'm there.



that's a great guess Dean - I think it's Fuji 400H. Sydney's going to seem very dull and slow after Hong Kong - like a big country town.

Thanks too Jose and Scott - this thread moves so fast it's getting harder to acknowledge people's comments, but they're much appreciated.

Hello All,

It's been a busy week with a 5 mile run on Wednesday, playing a soccer game on Thursday, drinks after work on Friday and at last a concert las night.
Again way to many good postings to individually comment on. A special mention for Monty's pick of the plumber's wife

Here is a photo taken at the concert with the 200mm F4 Ai the artist is Jackie Green, one of our favorites.

All three are good, but I particularly like this one and how you developed it. The vignette and added grain was a perfect choice.
