I was right it was Cassis! Wonderful little town (at least it was 20 years ago).

A shot I just had to take while shooting soccer today - the coaching-zone of a local club nicely equipped with stools made in the former GDR:

Philippe, lovely harbour-scene! I just can't get enough of boats and ports and the sea.

Peter, nice work with the 20/3.5! I like especially the last shot for it's framing.

Samy, the old 105P renders the background in a beautiful fashion!

Dean, that's a fantastic set! I love the "askew crucifix" and the image with the city-background. The processing works great here in my opinion. Welcome back!

Rafael, very cool images from the "Cruising Grand"! My personal fav is the "Cruising Grand Street" - the cars look like hungry predators in your shot. Great use of the super-wide Nikkor.

Haha, Philippe, you're right! Some coaches can indeed sit on comfy, heated, cozy leather-Recaros. But those chairs are not worth a single frame/shot in my opinion. I like it cheap and raw

Philippe, Ronny, Leighton, Samy and Jose: thanks for your comments on the leaf and/or the engine room!

Samy, sorry, I don't have any detail-shots from this engine-room. Another pano is in the works.
Here's a quick grab-shot (taken as "photographic note" for me) from a part of the ship's engine-room:

another one from Cassis with 180 :



I just looked at a map, and I am pretty sure I have been there - summer 1980, on the road from Marseilles to Toulon, D559. We were on a 3 week bicycle tour, a loop starting and ending in Avignon. We went south to the coast, followed the coast to Toulon, then headed north to La Palud sur Verdon, and back west to Avignon. I am still amazed that my parents let us do this.

My slides from that trip were already very faded when I scanned them, so not the best representation what a Nikkormat EL with 50mm f1.8 could do.

From the notes I had taken this image is the only one from Cassis - we took a break in the shade of these nice trees lining somebody's driveway



This is in Martiques a few days earlier

Very nice, Georg! I guess it is the contribution of Germany to the new green energy production!

3 weeks for a bicycle tour starting and ending in Avignon via Toulon and La Palud : well done ! That's just the time for the Tour de France. For sure you must have met a lot of girls on the road!

^Philippe, the machinery dates back to the mid 50's - I guess "smoke on the water" had a different meaning back then;-)

Peter, I love the shot of the Citroen DS in the alley - it looks like the goddess had a dinghy stuffed into in the trunk...

Just a few from today. Mounted the 80-200/4.5 AI for the heck of it. Although this is a nice zoom I don't think I like it as well as my 180mm f2.8.

Leighton, you've captured a wonderful moment at the picture of the couple! It's a really lovely image. The background is a bit busy, but that's life.

Spent some more hours with the green machines ;-)
This pano was planned with the dark green box as "Anchors" at the far left and right borders of the image, but I couldn't bring PS to stitch it like intended.
The original image is about 22.000 by 4.000 pixels large, over at flickr is a 5500x1000-pixels version.

Jose, if you continue to post amazing images like the long-distance-portrait of the "Great Kiskadee" the prices of the 800/5.6 Ais will never come down

edit: Please keep those fantastic shots coming, I'm too cheap to buy a 800/5.6 at any rate anyway ;-)

Ronny, I'm not sure how you manage to get those bees in flight macro shots! Amazing.

Georg, very cool shots from the engine room of the old DDR ship.

Dean, great processing, glad to see you posting again!

A couple with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s on my walk home from the office this afternoon. The first is shot from the hip, wide open. The second is at f/8, and you can see some crazy flaring going on, despite the fact that I have the HS-12 hood on there...

Yard sale all day today - we cleared out 75% of what we had - which is great because we really needed to clear out the space.

What a sweet looking house John. If you have one next door for $350,000 let me know... Actually, though I may be willing to revisit Seattle, Sue wants less rain and more sun... Obviously, it works for a great many people but we've been spoiled by California weather... not to be confused with Florida weather...

Nice to see you back Dean. When I saw those photos I thought instantly of Brad who was a great adventurer in his processing... and that was before so many of us invested in Nik software tools. I imagine you did these with a little help from Nik... as I did after shooting today. Lovely set of images Dean. I like the processing.
