The image tells the story - Bravo. What use to bother me - is when your editor picks your fav, and ruins it with a dumb crop.

In the last few days I've shot close to nothing personal stuff. Here's a picture taken thursday for a newspaper - for a story about roadway noise. The editors asked an actor of the local theatre to pose for this illustration. It's really great to work with actors - especially with so cool and friendly fellows like the one below. This take is a bit over the top and the paper picked another one from this short series, but it's my personal fav :-)

I've always wondered how those droplets stay put. Around here if I tried that, one of the cats (Tom, most likely) would be butting in looking for either a pat/scratch, or wanting their photo taken... Really nice, Kevin.



Surface tension on the water droplets. Glad you like the shot. It was hard to take... Winds were around 10-20mph with gusts in the 30s...

Monty,
I'm glad to see Nikki is on her way. I've already got several ides of shots for her to take.

I might have missed focus here... but I'll show it here anyway:

105/2.5 on D700


Had a good time in Austin today running various errands and met Larry (LarryM); we had a good talk about cameras and he walked away with a nice 20/3.5 AI to enjoy. So I'm glad to see another photographer join the thread and I like the colors in your first shot Larry.

It seemed like everywhere I went, I was running into people who I could talk cameras with. I dropped off some color film that I am going to be excited to get back in a few days, and also got to handle an Fujifilm XE-1 and X-mount 35/1.4. That's a sweet little setup. I should note that it's looking like the next time I buy a digital body, it will probably not be a Nikon...

My newest film body isn't a Nikon either; I scarcely can believe I stumbled onto what I did at the price I did... might as well have stole it! The kind lady that I bought it from told me as I was leaving to enjoy it because I'd never get one in that condition at that price again. She's right. Look out Nikon:

No kidding, I wish those last few on the left were lit up as well. But wow what an image!

Laura, The event took about 2 hours but only the last 15 minutes worth viewing since they all will try to lit up at once.

Monty, that moon bothered me a lot. I wanted it in my image so I was running around finding a spot to include it but also the reflections. I was hoping I had a 20mm or a 24mm would do. That was with a 28mm f2.0

Matt, I took it continuously for a while but the far left never turned on. I am not sure why. Maybe my angle was bad for that balloon.

I just picked up a 24 2.8 AIS from my local camera store for $180. What a lens!!!! I cannot believe the colors, contrast, and sharpness on my D600.

I owned that lens but sold it after shooting with the later AI-s version with the 62mm filter ring. The later lens had much richer color. Were I to buy one I'd likely go with the AI-s. Bjorn appreciates the AI, which is the reason I bought it, but I wasn't ultimately impressed enough to keep it.


Thank you Grindahl! I will look at the AIS instead. Cheers.

+1 Love the image as well Monty. I imagine your photographer friends appreciate the kind of shooting you do. I love taking photos of other photographers when we're rambling about. Nicely done.

I crossed the Richmond-San Rafael bridge this morning and stopped twice to take photos of the span. The first was shot with the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF, the second with the 55 f/1.2 S-C AI'd.

I love that first one, great perspective with the 300. Driven over that bridge a few times myself.
