Well the twins arrived today from Florida. While you all were sound asleep I was busy keeping my eye on the buy and sell. Only Curtis spotted them but way after the fact. Well at least I saved you all some money!


Congrats, Ron! The twin at the right side seems to be a bit chunky :-) I still like my 135/2 (Ais in this case), but in my opinion the 105/1.8 feels so much better, smaller and lighter than it's twin-brother (or -sister).
Have fun with the twins!

Philippe, is that a huge fine the driver is looking at on the cop's notebook? I get the feeling he is really unhappy about something That's quite a moment to capture.

Of course here across the pond I would never point a camera anywhere in a direction where a cop (or traffic cop for that matter) might be.

Hey, Samy, I was kidding! I don't know who's that girl but she's certainly not a cop! Our cops are way more stylish

Chuong, great action around the basket!

Chin, another very unusual subject beautifully photographed.

Curtis, excellent set from the beach! The very first shot could have been taken 10 minutes from my home on the Baltic Sea - this one and the running girls are really wonderful. Over here I would never snap a picture of a playing child without formally asking the parents before - no chance for spontaneous snapshots sadly :-(

Jeff, nice finds at the fences!

Ben, love the framing and point of view on the first shot!

Ed, beautiful fall-colors and a rather drastic juxtaposition of your neighborhood.

Some wonderful shots in this thread. Thanks, Curtis, for starting it up and keeping it alive.

A favor, if you please? You folks shooting film? It would be beneficial, IMO, if you'd let us in on how and/or if you developed them. Developer, times, agitation, etc.

Thanks a bunch.

Kenny

I think I'd better post a photo, lest people think I gave up on photography...

Sue and I drove out to Limantour Beach on Drake's Bay on what was a perfect day for a walk in the beach. Here are are a few shots. The first was taken with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s. The second with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s. Both were converted to BW in Lightroom 4.

What a great series and I just love this one of the mother photographing her daughter. Great timing!

Curtis, thank you for your kind words and for creating (and "nursing", I hope that's the proper term) this thread!
It's really great to see the wide variety of pictures taken all over the world with classic MF-Nikkors. It's a lovely place to share thoughts about and experiences with, pictures of and taken with MF-Nikkors. I really like the tone here - friendly and helpful, not the name-calling and bashing that seems to be usual today.
Thank you, Georg.

Well, Monty, Laura and Georg are the main "culprits" for requesting one more owl shot. At least this time there is a rusty stuff together

Burowing Owl perched in an iron pole of an almost abandoned railroad.


Burrowing Owl perched in an iron pole, late afternoon by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI (narrow tripod collar) EDIF , ISO 200, f/8 at 1/100s, hand held, burst mode to get the less blurred image, ~30% cropped.
The slight yellowish cast is from the late afternoon sun.
