...yes, but pretty slow this time. Some years ago I've tried to build a stable support out of Manfrotto clamps and arms, but it didn't work in my car. Thanks.

Just great shots Dean - it's a bit of an eye opener to me how the place has changed since I spent a couple of days there in 1989. To see the lady in a motor boat and not a sampan just sums it up for me.


Thanks, Peter ... they still call them sampans ... just motorized I would imagine a lot has changed here over the last 20 odd years ... I'm sure much has stayed the same though.

Dean, it all depends where you're going. As you shoot full frame you might need a slightly longer lens and I think the 70-200 on the TC should be great for most situations. The 180 and the TC200 would also work well as would the 300. Bear in mind that if you're in Botswana, for instance, the bush is a lot less dense than it is in the Kruger Park and the adjoining parks. Also if you're going to be in a safari vehicle (all mine were taken from my X Trail from roads) you'll likely be much closer to

Thanks for the information, Peter. It's very helpful getting your perspective. The blog reference is much appreciated too.

It's actually a work trip with a few days tagged on the end for the safari. I'm going over there to meet and sign up a new distributor and also to check some blending facilities as we want to blend raw food stuffs over there as well.

The investors also have shares in private parks over there and have invited us to stay so it is somewhere in SA. Up until a couple of weeks ago we were staying at a place called Madikwe, but now has changed as we changed our trip schedule and the place is full. They are arranging another place which is "nearly as good" I'm told but I thought it rude to ask exactly where. I know we have our own vehicle, guide and driver which is very lucky This would mean we probably get quite close to some animals.

I think I'll go with my original idea which was the 70-200 + 2xTC on the D800 which can get me to 600mm if needed in DX mode and then the 180 Ai-S + TC200 on the D700. Might get one of those bean bags as well

To tell you the truth, part of me just want to get a 28-300 VR, slap it on the D800 and just soak up the experience without any hassle ! I'm just not sensible enough to pull something like that off

Cheers!

So.... IT's gallery walk night. Some of the Photoclub members were going to meet at Ella Mae's, a shop downtown. There were models there. Some of the club people Love model photography. It's not my style. But being the friendly kind of guy I am, I went to Ella Mae's. Well surprise... surprise... It is a smut shop The models were dressed in provocative "role playing" outfits. I took one or two pictures....

They laughed at me when I asked if I could photograph her bullets

2. Second 2 photos are of the 55 1.2 SC AI'd I just picked up from KEH (rated Ex, no caps) that I will be returning. Focus is a bit stiff and it is NOT a Nikon AI conversion. They could not tell me that in advance, so I took a chance knowing their return policy is fair, but am sending it back likely on Tuesday. Too bad, it is otherwise a very pretty lens.

KEEP THIS LENS! Man, it looks FANTASTIC annnnnd you have a scalloped aperture ring! Pretty sweet if you ask me. I'd trade you straight up if you could live with the brassing all over my copy!

If you don't want it to look like it was home converted, just take off the strip of tape with the numbers on it. Unless of course you use it on a film camera AND use the small numbers to tell what f-stop you are at (I don't, I just count the clicks).

Looks pretty special to me too, Monty ... looks beautiful in fact. Where I live in HK, I'm pretty sure there's a tree of some sort around 4 or 5 blocks away, however it still seems to have it's leaves in tact

Our little dog Pepe also likes to try and worm his way under the covers but is banned. He's allowed to sleep on the the bed though ... sorry, make that he lets us sleep in his bed

I do love me some 55 1.2 SC.







Just this week there was a $15 million dollar fire at a fuel refinery. It is in an industrial area that is very close to residential housing. Many people had to be evacuated. This photo is from a few miles away, at Portage and Main.

Portage and Main has a very interesting history. If you are at all curious, please check out this link (some great old photos too): http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/story/2012/06/01/mb-portage-main-history-winnipeg.html

And some 28mm f2 AIS

*edit* I should say something about a couple of these.

This first one is of Eric The Great. He is Winnipeg's most infamous street musician. I love running into him, and I run into him A LOT. He seems to be everywhere. I bought a CD off of him for $8 I'd say 15 years ago, and he hasn't changed a lick. Speaks in riddles at times, gives you the eye like he's watching to see if you are up to speed on what he's layin' down.



This man's name is Thomas. He was not at all interested in the fact that my grandfathers name was also Thomas, or that my own middle name is indeed Thomas as well. No, this Thomas was on the lookout for some spare change. He was extremely intoxicated, from his aroma and demeanor I would say it was hairspray or mouthwash. That is the messiest kind of drunken stupor.



I have no idea what this guy is up to. He sat there patiently while I focused. Didn't move at all. Shame I clipped his foot.

Amazing !! Same goes for the second set. You are the "street king" of this thread.

The second one is just really awesome ... what a capture.

Great processing as well. Always a pleasure to see your work, Dylan.
