Not sure if Blogger has a spot to hold comments till you approve them, would cut down on the visible spam.

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

Congrats on the new to you Macbook Pro. I'm really disliking the fact that they're pulling the optical drives out of the newer versions though.

I'm only 28 pages behind.... ;-( and busy this week.

But, the good thing is that I bought a new-to-me Macbook Pro, very fast, and I can't wait to see how well this machine will handle my LR files. I always had to wait because he was loading an image. That will be history with a 2,7 Ghz i7 processor and 16 GB memory!
But I made a mess of migrating my data, so that will keep me a bit busy.

So Monty, no SSD and no retina...

I'll check all your photo's in between...



Too bad you didn't have a green screen cloth, add the aquarium later Bummer you couldn't make a go of it, maybe an ebay store would work?

If you want even faster, put an i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz in a PC and overclock it to 5.0GHz and also add at least 16 gigs of RAM and put LR on a SSD. Now you're talking speed!

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

Yea, they do. I'll make sure it's turned on, thanks. The only thing is though, the spams never actually post a comment, I just get an email indicating that they did. But whenever I check the posts there's never a comment, weird.

Thanks Chuong and Leighton. It's about as festive as I think I'm going to get this year. I still need to get the house cleaned up and don't have the urge to do it yet. It's not going anywhere till I deal with it, so I'll deal with it when I'm ready

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!

I am sure someone needs this. This appears to be a really nice one with a guarantee and a factory AI ring.

these are great Tony I really like the first one and the last one - actually that last reflection with the dome slashed diagonally and half blurred makes a strong statement - that deserves to be full size.

that's for Curtis - he's always saying he only wants them if they've been authentically converted.

Curtis - nice to see you back - even if only briefly and with your photos locked (was that a subconconscious slip - that'd be up your alley)
