Obviously, you've had both dogs and cats in your life. My heart melts for a golden retriever wagging its tail at me AND I love the independence of a cat who will, on occasion, deign to permit me to give it a few rubs. You've said it perfectly.


Thanks, Curtis.
I'm more of a dog person, especially German Shepherds which always attract my attention.

Last time I looked there were fireworks celebrating the 2000th page for this thread and now that seems ancient history

First image is an interesting trio of birds all foraging for different food.

The second one I happened to look up and caught this sight - the moon visible through that branch, lined up right under that row of leaves.

Got the 180 2.8 AIS finally through its paces. Starting to dig through the pics.

Different birds, different food. - The opposite of "birds of the same feather...blah, blah, blah."

Great shots, Peter. You must have millions of shots to go through

B&W really suits the buffalo shot.

Keep them coming !!


Thanks Dean.

Actually I'm a very miserly shooter - must be a hangover from the film days. I can't understand how guys go out for a day and fill a card and then have to come home and go through image after image looking for minor variations. I'm sure I could have had a few more keepers but I don't think there's anything worse for non photographers than having to sit through a session of 50 images of more or less the same scene!

Wow Mike - the B&W conversions are superb and I love the colours in the other two also. The trees are ethereal. Well done.

The Cape buffalo. Is he the reason why I find the best tasting steaks are from South Africa.
Gimme a T-bone, medium rare!


Maybe a bit tough but I have had buffalo fillet which is fantastic and about 2 1/2 the diameter of beef.

Curtis - the grapes show promise of an excellent vintage!

Georg - Great image

Ed - you and Curtis really know your onions -- er, dahlias!

So, apparently, does Rocky!!

Many happy returns of the day, Curtis.
Go back one post and have a single malt on me!

I haven't had time to keep up the last few days, so I will be browsing trough a bunch of pages this weekend. I am sure there will be much inspiring photo's waiting for me.
I did bring the camera to the office in SF today, and was able to catch the Blue Angels trough my office window while they were practicing for the fleet week. Here is a pic with the D300 and 200mm F4 Ai

Hello Jimmy (not sure if that is your real name) - thank's for the compliment.

Nice to see another from the area on this thread.

The boats were shot way out in the New Territories in Sai Kung, where funny enough I am off to in a couple of hours again to meet a friend for the day. Thanks for mentioning the "noon gun" ... it's something I have been meaning to shoot but always forget about.

I haven't eaten the salted fish before, not here anyway. It must be very popular because it's drying everywhere.


It gives off its lovely pong even when drying.

One more from tonight on my way home. I had taken a picture here years ago, but liked the light tonight. This is taken with the 28mm f3.5 and is a "pseudo" HDR treatment in Photomatix from one Raw image file.
I hope you like it.

I love this shot. The human form in the background, the light falling on the table, and the conversion all fall into place for a fine image.
