Georg, too bad the cemetery here doesn't allow things like this. During the summer, I carry a one gallon water bottle with me, filled with water from home. Can't put any sort of potted plants there, either.
Monty, that's a fine documentary piece! Mid or late 50's I would guess.
A sign for the world getting "smaller" due quickly expanding airline traffic I assume.
Speaking of another world - this isn't irreverent meant - many elders here spend a lot of time caring for the graves of the gone relatives and friends.
Sometimes this results in kinda strange sights, like this one:

OMG, that IS a bee on the top there!! WOW. Can't think of where I'd use an 800 on a regular basis though... before anyone tries to tempt me with the one at KEH.
Back at home and with a sunny afternoon, I was taking some pictures of the pine in front (and below) of my balcony, 25m away, experimenting once more the 800 + TC20EIII:

This was taken 25m away with D7000 + TC20EIII + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 ais EDIF (=1600mm f/11) + tripod.
ISO 320, f/16 (8) at 1/125s.
Matt, if/when it does come to surgery, after all the PT, the relief from pain will be well worth it. It's been just over two years since my rotator cuff surgery was done, while they were in the neighborhood they fixed a few other things like a torn bicep and some arthritis spurs, and I feel so much better now. Hope you can put enough aside for when you do have to have the downtime.

Thanks I've been put on a combination of oral steroids, Anti-inflammitories, and pain medicine has relieved the pain enough for me to use the camera when I'm not being paid. I'm just hoping they can find a long term non surgical "fix" for this. It feels good to be able to get out and almost enjoy myself, I'm sure it's short lived but I'll take whatever break I can get at this point. It's been a rough time lately.
Thanks Matt. I think someone is putting these colors up for me lately, so I always bring a camera with me to the cemetery. Unfortunately it's in a section of town that is rather run down and trouble prone, so I make sure I keep my wits about me while I'm there.

I always love how you can capture those colors in the sunset.
Thanks Kev. Probably wouldn't be too hard to paint it black
This shot is pretty amazing. Wonder how it would look with the streetlight removed in post?
Wow, I stopped in at an In and Out while I was in Dallas. First time we went to one when we lived in CA, we didn't know about their portions, and ordered large fries for each of us , no, we didn't finish them.... love the shot.
Been busy with the time change and the customer in town.
Just enough time for in and out.
love my D3, so clean at high iso with no help. 50mm 2.0 at 2.8. This is a perfect sample.

Thanks Peter, but I don't lug that headstone around either I'd taken a bunch of stuff out of the trunk of the car in order to go grocery shopping, and I need to put everything back in the trunk (boot) now.
Laura, this is excellent. A monopod is lighter though
Thanks Georg, I definitely need to teach the muscles to hold it a little better before I try another handhold shot . The planes, if they'd not been so blurry, would have been great. From where I was sitting, you could see a dot and a contrail.
Laura, very nice evening sky and a pretty serious looking 300/4.5 on that V1!
Americo, I hope your new 85/1.4 Ais will not disappoint you!
Rafael, very nice mix between the light-sources. The 50/2 seems to be a real winner.
Love it, Chin!

Unfortunately Oolong wasn't as cooperative, kept peering out to look at the tv (for real this time, not the washer)

Rather sudden, Reagan. Hope nothing's wrong other than an itch to try mirrorless. The V1s were on sale not that long ago for pretty cheap.
In case anyone is looking for a D700
Why oh why am I thinking of Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory now?
