Hi All,

It's been quite an intense past few days and I've not been able to keep up with the thread at all, but I can see from this page alone there's plenty of amazing photographs to catch up on. However much as I love my hobby and the inspiration I get from the work people post here there is something more important and this past week that was being with my son in hospital after he was taken ill. Thankfully he is much better, back home and recovering well but it's made for quite some stressful time.

I'm so glad he's doing better. I know what it's like when you have a child in the hospital.

Gorgeous shot Leighton... as they say, photography is all about the light. I see scenes like this and the first thing I think is I need to stop and take a photo. I seldom do... being retired is so demanding... I don't have the time...

Peter (Madison), stunning focus stacking work!

Chuong, great use of the 28 f/2.8 AI-s for environmental portraiture. Did you just get this lens?

Margot was threatening to have a fever and was in some obvious pain as a result of teething. I took a quick run out to get her some medicine this morning, and shot these with the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s on route:

Sorry to hear about your son's illness Mark. I've never been a parent but I've no doubt that witnessing your child suffer is one of life's greatest challenges. I know in the work I've done as a grief counselor, that the most painful loss is the death of a child. It seems such a violation of the natural order in which younger people witness their elders passing and not the other way around. So much love is born through the ongoing interaction between parent and child that happens 24 hours of every day.

I'm pleased to hear he is doing better. We take nothing for granted. Every moment is precious. And love is the only currency that ultimately matters. Hope all is well for you, your son and your whole family.

Mark, I'm glad to hear your boy is doing better.

Leighton, you made the very best out of a rainy sunday.

Mark (from the US), love the "Bizarro"-shot: cut back to the essentials. Wonderful.

Peter, the "Scarborough sunset" is spectacular!

Scott, love the "balance" of your fine picture from the tulips. Thanks for your comment on the pup!

Jeff, your "old friend" is aging gracefully. Beautiful B&W and perfect framing!

Chuong, lovely and quite lively pictures of your son ;-)

Ronny, "Lookout" is another fantastic portrait of Nitro. Well done!

Jose, love the 3D-look of the first epiphyte-image. The harsh light was tough, but adds a lot of depth to this shot.
Thanks for your comments! Btw, I've lost the auction for the 25-50/4 :-(

Ron, "Cooper" seems to be quite a character. Nice portrait!

+2

I actually didn't get much shooting done in the two weeks I was off, but I'm sure that in the next 12 weeks, I'll get some shooting in, since one of my classes is Photography I, B&W and Darkroom Developing.

Thanks everyone for your comments on my little boy's pix.
Leighton - Love that flower shot.
Philip - No, I have this lens for a while now. As I going through bunch of lenses to see what I like, I find that the 28mm f2.8 AIS is one of my favorites.

Couple from this weekend. One is the oldest camera I own, c. 1916. The other is a Chinese TLR. These are both lit as the sun set and shone through my living room window into my display case. I wish more of the Kodak was lit, but the sunlight didn't go high enough.

Both taken with the Series E 50mm f/1.8.

Oh, you can see the "free" Series E 100mm f/2.8 that I am repairing. Had a stuck focus ring. Seems this lens sat for so long that the grease separated out and is acting like sludge. There is not a single mark on the lens to give any indication that it has ever been used. When I got it, it was found in the bottom of a whole bunch of donated Pentax, Minolta and Canon gear. I got all the Nikon stuff (nobody shoots Nikon at the college I work at, so they had no need for it).

Went for the Sunday drive, had wanted to take the 5cm 2.0 S from 1959 out for a spin, this lens is very sharp closed down, but primarily I like the look wide open, very sharp center tapering off to unsharp edges gracefully, beautiful vignette, smooth bokeh.

Used on the D3, converted with Nik film effects to Kodachrome 64.

Mission Santa Ysabel, long fallen, current chapel is from 1924. Deep roots, for me as well.

Can't help but share the experience of driving backcountry mountain roads in SoCal. Most people ride bikes, as you can only go so fast legally on a car. A bike multiplies the experience at normal speeds.

Thank you Curtis, Georg and Chuong.

Kevin - I like the second shot, it looks very "old-timey".

Rafael - I love the look of the first image of the old truck. That lens looks very interesting in deed and you also did a nice job in PP.

What a great lens !! I really the look of those first two images.

Would love to see more of this lens wide open if you get the chance.

Very nice.

I agree - I love the 'draw' of those lenses where the focal length is measured in cm...!
