Not 100% sure how I feel about this one. I was going for just the tip of the stamin... Granted, this was done hand held in very poor light as a test...

Excellent Kevin - one of those images that I really pause to look at again and again.

Well done!

nice pick up.

Now speaking of picking up, the Turd saw the cute little doggie and started to consider waking up... and then he gave up and went back to napping. Nice life.


All too hard for the poor guy !! Sleeping is a serious endeavour. Nicely photographed btw.

Two pictures from today:



They are all good, but I love the first one. You composition is always first rate, Georg.

Thanks for posting that comment Monty, about how Nikki has reinvigorated your passion for photography
I’ve enjoyed everything you’ve posted so far
It got me browsing through the blog again from start to end, and reminiscing on my own experiences with
It reminded me that I too, was in a rut, until I received that brown box and then everything was in a blur, swept in a whirlwind of shutter clicks, hastily made plans and meticulously laid ones; cancel an appointment here, take the day off there
Thanks for the timely reminder, I feel a second wind coming…


I believe all of us get in a rut from time-to-time. I was in a rut for years and when I rediscovered these lenses after MANY years away from them then I immediately feel back in love.

I'm pretty sure that most of you regulars on this thread feel the same way. And when a new lens comes in the mail, the excitement begins all over again! I think this is one reason why the term "kit building is forever" is so true.

They don't make them like they use to. This is a Stereo Knob that broke off a tape deck I donated to a charity electronics collection; and then found in the floor of my car a week later. Each knob was milled from solid aluminum alloy.

Whole knob - 20mm Nikkor ais






End of the knob - reversed 20mm Nikkor ais

I need constant encouragement and motivation from others. This thread helps A LOT. My local Photo Club is also a big help. I attend the club board meetings and try get the club to have a lot of photo shoots. We are starting a monthly meet up. Very informal. Shoot for an hour then drink coffee and talk smart. But mostly get us out taking pictures!

New lenses and new software always helps! I downloaded the On One Suite a few days ago. (I think I'll stick with Nik)

Anything that gets me taking pictures is good!!!

Nice one!

It seems the 85mm has a new challenger on the block. Who will win the prized place on Monty's camera?

I need to do some serious catching up after being away for a week attending to some important matters and will do so in the next couple of days. But before I go back I'll post one of my mistakes with the 55 f/1.2 S-C AI'd from yesterday. On Saturday, I did a photo shoot for a friend who is negotiating a book deal and needed a head shot for the book jacket. We did most of the shooting inside and I don't have lights, so I shot in manual mode, relying on the D700 to compensate for the low light. I'll post a couple of photos of the day later. The camera was definitely up to the task, as was the 105 f/1.8 AI-s I opted to use. But I forgot to change settings before shooting boats along a channel in San Rafael and as you would expect, setting the shutter speed at 1/125th of a second was not going to work very well in bright sunlight at f/5.6. Oh well... mistakes happen...



Glad to be back... and now to catch up...

Hey if were not for the shimmer on the water it would look like some mega dollar water color painting done by a famous artist. Still looks pretty cool!
