Nikki in DC - Update #2

My late night of holiday partying doomed my idea to get out early and do some sunrise shooting with Nikki and while the day nearly got away from me I did swing by the Capitol on my way home. It was misting and rainy which is one of my favorite 'looks' for the Capitol Dome, the lights look cool in a mist/fog setting. I ended up focusing (pun intended) on some found reflections on the eastern plaza above the relatively new Capitol Visitor Center. Enjoy!


Terrific Tony

I have really been enjoying the photographs and conversations posted here over the past several weeks. I've been wanting to post some images too. The first three were taken by my wife during our visit to the Amana Colonies near Cedar Rapids, Iowa. These are some of her first images with a MF lens. That's me in the orange coat, but the cat quickly caught all of her attention. My attention turned to her in the last photograph.

Great shots Paul, especially the third one.

Well, that's a bummer if glasses won't fix your eyesight at your young age(guessing at age since your oldest is my oldest granddaughter's age). My left eye is -6.50 and my right is -5.75 and the bifocal part is +2.50 right now, putting me in the severely myopic category, thankfully still correctable with glasses and I can still shoot MF with FX, DX or CX.

Hi Laura - I was -12.75 and -13.50 prior to lasic surgery in 1996 (I'd worn hard contacts since I was about 19 - 32 years) and was lucky enough to be able to see pretty well. I've since had a cataract removed and a lens replaced in my left eye and wear glasses for distance work. I don't have too much trouble focusing with MF lenses and DX cameras although it did take some practice.

Part of the problem is the focusing screen which is not much different from my old Pentax fresnel screen and focusing would be a piece of cake with a split screen or even a KatzEye.

None of your zenfolio stuff seems to be showing up in the thread.

Good eye!

We were also joined by a '38 Buick straight eight, a Morgan +4, and some two-stroke Vespa among others. It took me a bit to figure out which XK that was since the only familiarity I've got with British vehicles comes from Laycock de Normanville in Swedish cars. :P

Thanks folks for the comments on the Air and space museum shots.

Paul, very nice images and cool collection of Ai and Ais lenses.

Tony, terrrrific images of the Capitol!! The reflections images are super! Great to have Nikki hanging around this area.

Monty, that picture of the family walking towards you was a classic.

Philippe, your images were super again.

Curtis, your zenfolio images didn't show up, some settings may need to be tweaked still.

Will get to the rest later today.

Here's one with the 180 2.8 AIS, through glass at the observation tower at the museum yesterday. Lots of fog and drizzle, and the planes coming in to land would come out of the mist suddenly and then there were a few seconds to try and get the picture. This would be more fun to do on a sunny, bright day.

Space shuttle is cool, Samy. I should make plans to see one of them someday.
Some great cat expressions and captions, esp NightOwlCat.
Nice capitol shots with Nikki, Tony. Especially the reflection.
Matt, what great family captures with Brandon and Santa.

Leighton, Ray, and Georg, thanks for the comments on my last picture posts.

Happy Monday all!
Ray

Thanks Leighton for your hard work!

What can I say? Romania shows a great interest in Nikon MF glass and particularly in Nikki's adventure! :-)


Thanks Mihai.

After you mentioned what you did about Romania, I got curious and looked into the stats a little more. It seems the blog has been spammed and they decided to use your post number 7 to do it! I've been getting emails stating that there was a comment made on this post but I never saw any, so I just ignored them. seems that one post has over 400 hits more on it than any other posts in the entire blog.

It's a shame they had to pick on our blog. I'm not sure if there's anything that can be done through Blogger, but I'll check into it.
