Craft beer is not cheap here either. A pint at Iron Springs during "happy hour" is $4 and at other times $5. Higher alcohol content brews are a bit more and the really strong stuff comes only in a ten ounce glass. A large bottle of craft beer will go for between $4 and six or seven bucks. We're blessed to have a number of brew pubs and an outstanding craft brewery called Lagunitas, so there is considerable choice available.

Maybe it would be cheaper to move to Scotland!

Since this is a Nikon glass forum I can't post an image I just took with my D700 and another make manual lens. But maybe I can post this link (hope it works as I have never posted on Flikr) because my relatives tell me its a pretty funny photo:

I love Scotland Leighton. I was even accepted to a graduate program in Edinburgh and moved there with the intention of enrolling. My then wife got a teaching job in Linlithgow and we bought a very sweet Citroen Dyane that we drove all around Britain and Scotland before settling in Edinburgh. I posted this before... me in another incarnation with my wonderful Citroen.


I decided not to enroll after meeting with some students who'd just completed the program and we moved back to the U.S. But I love Scotland and the Scottish people. My first serious exploration of Scotch whisky came after that trip.

Thanks for following the "rules" David. Links are fine and that is a funny shot.

Yea, I remember when you posted this. Since I have a lot of Scot in me I've always wanted to visit.

There was some pretty good craft beer during your visit here. "The Little House" had 20 on draft and some good food and company too
Can't remember the waitress name but I remember what she looked like

Pompeii soil is very fertile and I managed to get these colourful fruits growing next the walls of the ancient city.


Red fruits from Pompeii wall by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Micro Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 ai hand held, ISO 1600, f/5.6 at 1/30s.
Someone here knows its name?

Edit: Peter and a friend of mine, a botanist, has identified the fruit as probably the Cotoneaster, family Rosaceae

That tree is incredible...what is it's name?

Georg, the 25-50mm is very useful for daytime and flash work, it is wickedly sharp from 5.6 up and so well built, a bit heavy and large. I allows one to frame the shot while beign as good as any prime on its aperture range.

most of the pics I posted were of the 16mm, here is a couple more of the 25-50mm, this house belongs to a family friend, my dad's was sold long ago. I had an "Out of Africa" longing for the place and this picture reminds me of it.

If you have the dropbox software installed, put the JPEG file in your public folder, then Right-click go to dropbox, then "Copy Public Link" and you'll have a URL like this (broken up to show the URL and not have it link twice)

http ://dl. dropbox. com/u /37433106 /dropbox. jpg







Very important that it ENDS with .jpg to get it to work

Quick image of a terns' nest. I was checking out an eagle's nest but all I got was a bit of white sticking out of the top of the nest. This mound with a family of terns was in the middle of the river probably about 500 feet away (Patapsco, just south of Baltimore).

500 F4P, 1/4000s, ISO640 f/5.6, handheld.







I saw that John's on the hunt for a 500 F4P, hope you can get hold of it. If its been maintained well, its a gem. And Ray, that one's another consideration for FX

Rafael, love the El Salvador shots too, those are really stunning.

GO for it John, you know we're all enablers here .

Oh geez - 500/4 AI-P available on the local CL for $2K and appears to be in excellent shape! How am I going to pull this one off . . . .



As far as I know, the only one here that uses Dropbox to post photos on a regular basis is Chuong, but I do have it, and posted the instructions after I got home from school, about 7 hours after your first post. Just make sure it doesn't start with https though, or the link won't show the photo.

Okay so much for friendliness


Jose, between you and Rafael, I am getting wanderlust, I'm going to have to get my passport!

Congrats on the lens, Ronny, I need to get busy and weed my collection down a bit, too.
