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


I forgot. Of course we don't want to eat buffalo meat. They are workers, and so would be muscular.

Jimmy

These guys aren't workers and the water buffalo pales into insignificance next to them. I'd love to see one in a bullring - we'd soon see who's boss!






The business end!!

Went and spent the day with a friend in Sai Kung, which is on the eastern most part of the New Territories in Hong Kong ... around 1hr away from where I live in central Hong Hong.

The area around here is huge and all green, no high rise and many nice beaches. Wind surfing is very popular here. It's originally an old fishing village and lots of fishing still goes one here. Boats come up to the pier where you can buy directly or go to one of the many excellent outdoor seafood restaurants. You pick your live seafood, they fish it out of the tank and cook it for you in what ever style you want. Very tasty day out !!

Hiking around this area is also first rate with the MacLehose Trail passing through this region ... an absolutely grueling 100km hike !!

There's so much to see and do around this area ... great place to photograph as well

All taken with the 50mm f/1.2 Ai-S

Are you kidding? Keep them coming! Wonderful photographs! I'll never see those animals in person, I'm enjoying seeing them though your "eyes"

Definitely not boring ... not too me anyway ... keep 'em coming

I'm getting worried as to what I should bring in the way of lenses for our safari trip in a few weeks. I'm taking my 70-200 VR2 and TC 2X III, but not sure what I should take in the way of an MF lens. I thought maybe just the 180 f/2.8 Ai-S with the TC200. The 300mm you took also sounds good ... everyone loves it on this thread. Might take two cameras as well after what you said about the dust.

And for Monty I have to post at least one BW shot from my birthday... this is inside Brix. Most folks opt for the patio when whether is good so these tables were waiting for the dinner crowd. Shot with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s.

I'm not a big fan of that lens but this shot is wonderful. Perfect light and contrast!

Dean: No chance to rent something longer? 400, 500, 600? Or snag a MF version or used copy then look to sell it off when you're back. May be cheaper than renting that way

One from work today - I wish I had a 85mm with me, the 105 was a tad long:
Unloading rotor blades at the harbour - 105/1.8


Georg, I actually prefer to use a 85 rather than a 100/105 but that shot is just stunning!

Yes, there's a few options for sure ... but I can't be bothered with the weight of even a 400mm lens ... they are all too heavy and would just get in the way of having a good time

Thanks Mark, Curtis, Leighton, Peter Jose and Georg for your comments on the "sea lights" photo.

Peter, great wildlife shots. I really like the Rhino and the Cheetah in the tall grass.

Samy, great work with the 180mm. The "levitating leaf" is a real winner.

Steve, nice pano!

Monty, really like "payday." Hope the checks haven't been downsized as much as the candy bar. "10 ton" is a great photo.

Eric, nice shots of your daughter and "turd."

Philippe, love the wood bench photo!

Curtis, great shots from Napa. The vineyard photo is beautiful.

Georg, the b&w from the zoo is a classic.

Matt, I'm looking forward to seeing your film work with that beautiful FA!

Mike, very nice river shots.

Dean, really like the colors and composition of the floating fish market shots.

Leighton, great peppers!

We are really blessed that we have photographers from around the world sharing photos on this thread, for as Monty suggests, it is likely not many of us will have the opportunity during this lifetime to visit all the places represented by these photos. I always enjoy your work Peter. South Africa is a beautiful country and your photos of wildlife are transfixing to me at least. And Dean, I've visited Hong Kong only once and that was the middle of the night spent in the airport as I awaited my plane to Delhi. Your photos always inspire me. What an exotic world in which you live. Even Philippe's work tickles my fancy. I've been to Europe many times but it will never be enough. Your photos Philippe stir memories and always remind me of what wonders await for anyone with a sense of history and an appreciation of great art and architecture.

Needless to say I feel the same about photos that come from Romania, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Australia and Brazil. I wish I were thirty years old again with another thirty years to explore our amazing world... only this time I'd do it with a bag full of Nikon manual focus lenses...

Well Tony didn't go talk to the guy in DC with all the MF lenses so I had to. He has a few left including one more 50 1.2 AI for $320. This one was $340 and has not a mark anywhere on it. Bridget just got her bath so I tested it out wide open.

Ron, you approach Nikon MF shooting much like you must have pursued auto restoration... with a vengeance! You are building quite a wonderful kit, including some impressive long lenses. You're an inspiration for all the newcomers who are gingerly dipping their toes in this particular pond... always reminding them that "kit building is forever."
