Since so many of you like images of rust, here is my sample. There is an art installation on the American River College campus. Uses augers as the pieces.

Thanks Leighton!

I posted without further comment simply to claim the privilege, but I don't honestly take much credit for this particular milestone since you've been doing the heavy lifting. Thanks buddy!

Remember this?

That's where it all began...

I imagine we'll be doing this for a few more years. I can't imagine a better bunch of folks to be hanging out with. Thanks everyone.


Yea I remember that, in fact, it's on the home page of the blog.

Very nice Kevin, there's nothing like a good rust shot!

You just had the privilege Kevin of posting the first comment on the NEXT 50,000 posts. Congratulations!

And I love rust as well, though I'd have to do a bit of digging to come up with a photo. I'll have to leave it to the rest of the crowd for now. I like this shot a great deal... I'm a fan of graphical images. Well done.

I noted that when I visited recently. It works for sure. I haven't done a photo of my entire kit of MF lenses for some time. That might be an enjoyable project tomorrow. I'm slowly recovering from a cold and am not spending much time running around, though I will head out for a bit of food in a few moments.

Enjoy your evening Leighton.

Kevin, very nice rusty stuff! I like it as some people over here.


Some menacing clouds and strange lights yesterday, late afternoon.

Jose, that's an amazing cloud-shot! Fantastic light and colors.

Kevin, very nice rust-shot! I like the framing and the punchy contrast.

Curtis, love your work with the Sonnar-105! I have way too many lenses already, but should I stumble across a nice copy of this lens with an attractive pricetag...

Jose, looking at your 135/3.5-sisters I wonder how many fantastic pictures have been taken with slow 135's. Very few photographers actually need a really fast lens. Too bad that iconic pictures of the past are rarely tagged with technical details.

John, love your panos! Ditto on your comment about CS6's photomerge - it works nice and easy most of the time, but for some reasons sometimes it fails.
I don't know if I'm ready for the user-interface of PTGUI Pro, too many options for a simple mind ;-)

Samy, the 500/4P+TC16A-combo seems to be pretty sharp. Love the bird in flight with the 180!

Dean, I like the set from Cambodia a lot. The framing of the first shot is fantastic.

Scott, the "Ice Covered Window" makes me shudder ;-) Love your slightly abstract take on this subject and the beautiful colors.

Ray, I like the NIKKI-sets a lot. The "Golden Gate" stands out for me, just like the "Sundial" and the last flower-shot from the first set.

Kevin, I really like the "Shadows" and the grass (or reed? - I'm not that much into botanics, except for the stuff I tend to eat).

Georg, it is something akin to wheat. Not sure its exact name, it is all over the area I live. Glad you like the pics.

I've often thought that about places where I've lived, but it is equally intriguing when we think about these lenses, many of which have been around for forty years. It is mind blowing to think of the possibilities.

With regard to my home, I'm aware the small cottage was once a garage and storage building. It was later converted for use as a music studio and one of my elderly neighbors, who has passed told me she gave piano lessons in this building. I imagine for folks in Europe the stories would be much more dramatic since buildings stand for centuries, not just decades.

I'd like to believe my lenses have taken wonderful photos, but how can we ever know? For a creative writer this could be a delightful approach to a story. Perhaps you know the movie titled "The Red Violin..."

Lovely Georg. I do volunteer work with folks approaching the end of their lives. A man I worked with for nine months had a home about fifty feet above a Pacific Ocean beach. We would sit for hours on his sun porch gazing out toward the ocean, the passing birds. It is definitely entrancing. I wrote about my time with him in an article in this newsletter. I did the graphic design and provided a couple of photos used.

The joys of spot metering in bright light... taken wide open with the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd. Yes, Georg, if you get a deal grab one. Did you go for any of the 16 f/3.5 fisheyes being talked about recently?

Curtis, yes, many buildings here have a really fascinating (and in Germany sometimes shocking) history. It's good that many hobby or non-professional historians here collect these stories - if "nice" or not.
Some lenses I have, but rarely use these days have a kinda emotional history for me - I've captured two very special to me family-pictures with a Leica Elmarit-M 135/2.8 as an example. Parting with this lens would be hard for me.
PS: Will keep my eyes open for "The Red Violin".

Thanks, John, Georg and Kevin.

Georg, excuse me, but I am playing the devil's adjutant role right now:

Thank you, Curtis! Water has a nice soothing, relaxing impact. That's one of the reasons why I enjoy fishing-trips so much (I have a fish-allergy, so it must be the recreation-factor ;-).
The delivery of the 16/3.5 (the one John discovered over at Adorama) is scheduled forMonday

Reagan, congrats! I hope you like it and didn't have to sell your beautiful Chevelle for it ;-)
