Thanks Georg. Always a delight to ramble through a nursery filled with flowers.

Love your photo with the underlying story of an arts organization "under the gun..." to use one phrase for describing their situation. I've no idea what it is like to be a photographer given assignments and then needing to consider how best to tell a story through images. Obviously, you're very skilled at producing well crafted images, but you also have a knack for finding a captivating point of view. You say you may at times try to hard to be creative, but that is much better than getting lazy about such things. I'm not certain what I'd be shooting if I expected of myself that I would always be looking for something fresh to shoot. Often, what could become boring is refreshed by a new lens with which to play. That was surely what the arrival of Nikki meant. The same happens with each lens added to my kit. It also helps to visit new environs since as wonderful as home is, finding a fresh perspective is always a challenge. Sunday I'll join a friend at a baseball game her nine year old son will be playing in. I'll try my hand and a bit of sports photography... something you know a bit about as well. I'll resist the temptation to bring an AF lens to see how well I can handle zone focusing... I learn by doing.

As you could tell the 45/2.8P was a hit while on vacation. It's optical shortcomings, though not that significant, are more than made up by it's portability. Nothing like being able to throw your D800 over your torso and not have the lens constantly banging into your arm.

A few more . . .

I bought the 105 f/2.5 P.C. AI'd because it offers a different physical design than either the P or the later K, AI and AI-s versions of the lens. It appears from photosynthesis that the first Gauss deign came in the last version of the P which has the widened metal focusing ring found in the P.C. I honestly have no complaint about any of the 105mm lenses I own. I guess part of my reaction to the P comes from the fact Bjorn rates it a bit less highly that the Gauss versions. I was surprised from the beginning

Curtis, good call, I ruined two good lenses trying to remove stubborn back screws.

Mihai, Georg, Jose, Ray and Samy, thanks for the comments!

Thanks Curtis! You were spot on when you recommended the 180mm 2.8 with the PK-13 tube. It's really a fun combination. Beautiful flowers with the 105mm.

Thanks Mark for your comment and for showing that temporary pirates can take good pictures. Your bubbles arrrrrr great!

Scott, belated congrats on your WA win. Well done!

Kevin, beautiful flower shots. I love the first one taken with the 135mm.

Ray, I really like the brick alley shot.

Samy, gorgeous blossom!

Georg, love the cannon image taken with the PC lens.

John, the blue glass still life is beautiful and "Low Tide" is a very cool shot.

Rafael, wonderful car and bike shots. Great vette!

My first focus stack! 7 images. Series E 28/2.8 @ f/5.6 in front of a PK13 (27.5mm) extension tube which yields a magnification of 2.6:1. This is a vertical crop of a horizontal image, about 30%

The girls have been wanting to go out to breakfast at a local place that opened up about 6 months ago - mainly because they specialize in crepes, some of the savory variety and some of the sweet variety. You can guess which type they wanted . . .

Slung the D800 + 45/2.8P around my shoulder and we walked the 5 blocks. My crepe was of the savory variety (due to my severe sugar incompatibilities) and hence was much less photographic than my latte or their berry + whip creme-filled breakfasts. Their eyes were much larger than their stomachs so next time they will have to split one.

And it appears they only have two eyes - don't most spiders have many eyes?

Here are a few shots from the John Ringling Mansion in Sarasota, Florida The opulence of this home is something you really need to see to believe. It is very ornate and the attention to detail is amazing. This home was built on the premiss that there is a sucker born every minute. The first shot is using the 16mm 3.5 and the next two are the 35mm1.4.

I don't think that Daddy Longlegs are spiders. I have the feeling they are a different order that has 8 legs but only 1 pair of eyes and cannot produce silk.

One from this morning, 180mm+TC201 just under 10 meters and about 50% crop of the image. Yes, late April and yet more snow. Helps with the birds though since they come where the food is.

You are correct, they are not spiders...just insects that look like a spider.

So following Curtis' urging, I took the 80-200/4.5 out with the PK13. Very fun combo, brings the lens more into what I would use it for! Not selling it now...

This was previously posted, now edited a tad.

These were popular with bees, just this flower wasn't up to snuff for them.

Similar to a previous posting, but a different exposure. Like this one a lot better.
