Finally had some time for photography and then the weather is lousy. It was pouring and after a few attempts I finally gave up. At this moment we have an event called Amsterdam Light Festival. All different kind of artists exposing light sculptures. I'll give it next weaken another try.

Two more from Verdun with the 85, a special place for me because my grandfather was seriously injured here in 1916 (he was 20 yo) :

Peter, loved the macros with light box; thanks for sharing the link!



Thanks Jose - I love looking at different photo blogs. Your parakeets are really great.

Ray - that lens is in good hands, lovely "micros"

Reagan - you make that lens sing too!

Chris - very nice images of Amsterdam - "dat lijk veel vrolijk" (forgive my 'plathollands')

Phillippe - I know how you feel. I visited my uncle's grave in Foiano della Chiana - he was only 22 when he was killed in WWll. Very touching and scary to think that your existence depended on a near miss.

don't know how you do it Jose. I stood in the street shooting the reflections for about 5 minutes - and that was that - I was over it. You must be so patient to scope out these kind of shots. And as for how you do it handheld with the 400mm - that is amazing.

Thanks Peter! Foiano della Chiana in Tuscany near Cortona? I often spend my holidays near the Lago Trasimeno wich is only a few miles from Foiano della Chiana! One of my favorite places in Italia!

Ray, cool idea to use the 55 micro on the ornaments, and beautiful colors+bokeh has a result.

Jose, those parakeets made me think of Ben's recent reflections. They seem to be arguing twins, very nice capture of the moment. And very good ad for the 400 5.6, its terrific.

Peter, you are right, those ice drops should have been ascribed to James. But in my case the excuse is long days at work this week

Reagan, hang on the 180 this time, it sure seems to suit you

Well I am now up to 4 normal lenses, and I can not explain why The 50 1.2 AIS got added to the 55 1.2S, 50 1.4S and 50 2 HC.

A quick grab from the 50 1.2 wide open to see if it will hide the paper clutter on the counter.

NIKKOR 15MM f/3.5 AI-s LENS

One of these is for sale here at about $1100.

Does anyone have any experience with this lens? I see 2 for sale on Ebay at much higher prices but am wary of the source.

Any comments?

That's the place. My uncle was killed at Chiusi which is nearby. By coincidence Ingrid's mom was at college at Cortona during the war and we visited there in June 2001 which seems like yesterday!

It is a beautiful part of the world - we also loved Umbria which is just as pretty but not as overrun by tourists.

Lovely shots Ron, I need to get myself over to the mill too, and shoot there. I know that place will be crowded so I'll just have to make the best of it.

Poor baby... I hate to see you suffer.. so maybe for Christmas you can have some snow?

Ron, where do you get warm it was 72 and windy
Thats why I was the only one there

Nice Beach shots though. I'm surprised there's nobody on them, New England folks must be a tough breed as there's always someone on the beach.

Poor Tina. Her wedding is a couple weeks away. Lots of stress and worry.

Years and years ago Margaret made me a worry doll. The deal is, I was supposed to put the worry doll under my pillow and sleep on it. Upon waking, my worries were gone. I've kept the doll around.

I loaned it to Tina

Just remember, down South they have fire ants, and cockroaches have wings and know how to use 'em...

Thanks, makes me want to walk the beach. Between you and Reagan, you're making it very hard for me not to pack up the farm and move South!



Love the mirror play Ben, is Carhartt really that big down there that they have their own bags/store for work clothes? Those women are really shooting some looks at you though, yikes!

Ron, no, it's really gained some traction for sure. Back then, it was just about a month after my rotator cuff surgery, so I wasn't picking anything up at all with my right arm. Took a while before I back in the swing of things.

Now this is funny from Page 8 October 21, 2010. Laura I think you started back up and your prediction was correct the thread is not dead!



YAY Reagan. I'm sure you'll have some wonderful shots from it again. I'm going to put mine in my bag too. My other one is on its way back from APS and should be good to go, so I'll have the beater and a nicer one.

You could, but you won't be in any position to use it. The worst part is drinking the stuff you have to drink the day before, the rest is nap time and you shouldn't feel a thing. I'm surprised the docs let you go so long without having one, usually it's a 50th birthday "present".

You guys post your warm cuddly beach pictures and we post our cold a** harsh pictures. Reagan you can tell by my wife's coat it's a long way from 72 deg. Keep the beach pics coming she loves them. 35mm Nikkor F2- O along the Delaware River

Funny, If my memory serves me well, I think I was there in June 2001 and I visited Cortona.
I posted pics from Cortona and Umbria in my Flickr page.
You are right, Umbria is a gorgeous place and way less crowded than Tuscany, don't know why!

Now I believe I have seen it all! Wouldn't it have been better if they just bought an AF lens instead of this butcher job.
