Rafael, amazing fire shots; glad we're far from that. A friend of ours lost his home in 2003. Sad. On a happier note, I'll raise you that same rainbow with the 105/2.5 (2-shot pano).

Nancy, with the 400mm my rainbow over San Marcos was wider, yours over Mt. Soledad has nicer shape and more color bands.

Can't win 'em all. It was actually a double, but that faded quickly. Here it is reduced to its atmospheric essence. I let Lightroom go to town just for giggles.

Let's see... cats, rainbows... next week: Unicorns!

Laura - those cats are lovely!

Monty - has Rocky got all his teeth? His right canine seems to be missing.

Hey Ben, the berry shot I believe was mine. The OTHER Tony! It doesn't help that we both started posting again at roughly the same time. Thanks for the comment!

Here are a couple from around the shop tonight. I think the shrink oven looks like a happy face!

Though on a cheerier note, I managed to catch this office lot (multi-storey parking part of it I think) during sunset today. I pass by very often on my way to lunch.
The orange sunset rays weren't strong today, but have always envisioned it as an apocalypse dead-town building-left-standing kind place so it got the tritone treatment

Chin, I like this almost looks like an abstract. Wonder what it would look like if you cropped everything but the building out?

Peter - Very nice product shots. I'd like to see a picture of the rig you built.

Monty - Now that's scary!!! Great capture.

Tony - Like the first one, very nice bokeh.

Leighton, you're in luck, since Tony is selling off his 135



I'd love it, but the 135mm has moved it's way down the lust list a bit. I need/want others before that one.

A side of Rocky you may not be familiar with

He and Higgs play hard. This play time goes on for 10 minutes or so. It looks and sounds very vicious, but it is good play...


My dogs play like this too! Looks and sounds ferocious, but they are just having fun. Great job capturing the moment, Monty!

Ok, one more presidents house. This time, in our own backyard! This is the house Woodrow Wilson was born in, it's in the city of Staunton, VA. We went out to supper last night and decided to swing by here and grab a couple of shots. The car was his 1919 Pierce Arrow which he fell in love with after his return from France after negotiating the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. All taken with Nikki of course!

Thank you Mark, Laura, John and Tony.

Nancy, what a fantastic rainbow capture!

Laura, as always, lovely cat captures;

Monty, your legendary timing delivered to us a great capture: Rocky is showing who is the boss

Mark, loved your Zürich set and particularly the Moorhen (?) captured from above;

Tony, great bokeh playing in the "cutter abstract";

Leighton, another killer set with Nikki with the bonus of History lesson!!

Leighton, nice shots of the Wilson house. I'd love to get a closer look at that Pierce Arrow!

Here is the beginning of a couple set's from the Chihuly Glass exhibit at the Richmond Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Chihuly is an artist/businessman who travels all over the place with these amazing displays of blown glass. I've actually seen his stuff in Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Richmond and DC now by some odd twists... the Richmond show is good but small in comparison.

All shots on my D600 with Nikki;

Thanks Jose and Tony.

Tony, I love these! What great color and the last one is special. I saw a show about him on PBS, he's quite a character, not to mention a great artist.

Thanks Leighton! He is a pretty interesting/eccentric guy from what I've seen... just wait for the next set, the color is really awesome. I wish I had time with a tripod in this exhibit...

that's a mighty fine rig you've got, maybe share a shot of the setup itsellf?


I didn't take one - it looked just too ghetto

Next time I'll use it I will snap a shot of the light box setup. It really is just a box-shaped frame made out 8 pieces of 2-foot 1/2" PVC pipe (10 foot piece $1.59) cut with a hack saw, and then pushed into the elbows and T connectors (about $0.50 each) to build a cube without bottom, then draped it with the white sheet before setting it on top of the white paper that is bent up in back by a dremel tookbox held in place by a large pot plant. Camera on the hiking tripod, flash one on the video tripod, flash three in my hand, since I have to trigger it with my thumb - don't ask...

It was one of those times I really missed the lens tripod ring on my 300mm f4.5 - it sways just from the mirror slap when mounted on a camera body that's on the tripod head, enough so that I could not use my delayed second handheld flash when shooting the watch.

Here's another one taken in the bedsheet rig - D600 with 105mm f2.5 and about 0.7" of extension tube at f11, cropped and edited at the base to take off the cardboard box it was sitting on, plus some contrast adjustment to blow out the background completely.

Thans to everyone who commented on my Zürich pics. After checking it seems the bird is a Eurasian Coot (thanks Wikipedia). Moorhens have a red beak like a Pukeko (which is probably an obscure reference outside of NZ).
