That's not true!
I always think of you when I'm taking picture because you're THE Master of women shots and something like a father for me about that topic. Do you know that your picture page 1093 post#2 is pinned up on the wall of my desk ? -)

I think Ben's moved on to Leica (and maybe Zeiss?) I think Mihai may also be using other equipment?

Tony from the neighborhood hasn't posted in a while. Laura I come across in the AF version of this thread. Monty still has his street images on Flickr.

Curtis' sabbaticals have been longer and longer. Alan probably got busier?

Got me looking back at those pages, it was about the time I got hooked onto the thread.

There were also other folks, Tony from California (kingsfreak), Chris Dees. And Leighton drooling over a 135 f2

Can't agree more Kevin. I often think of the talented photographers on this thread when I am out shooting. Their likes and passions. How would they see what I am seeing. What a motivation and inspiration it is at times. Then you come across a scene that you know will just be right for someone in the group.

Great shots everyone! Thank you all for the nice comments

- Scott wood shadows on wood and abandoned grainery shots are beautiful and the b&w conversion also very good
- Georg the bokeh shoot is very good led me to your flickr pool. Lots of nice shots there too!
- Sammy nice crisp images from Baltimore cemetery, school and churces with the 20 3.5 UD POV andf perspective are ideal in all these shots... Looks like there is no distortion with this lens. Did you fix it in post? Started following you on flickr.
- Larry nice motorcycle shot, I miss my bike. Your next photo "the lovers" is amazing
- Eric nice helmet!
- Chin, the stories add so much to your pictures...
- Peter very nice flower shots

I have to stop here at page 3504, I have to get back to work!

We had a nice chat via Skype around two weeks ago. He sends his love. He's been doing a lot of reading and writing. And his work with http://livingdying.org/ keeps him extremely busy. He'll be back once the Spring flowers make an appearance!

Thanks for sharing, Leighton! Yeah, the Spring-flowers will turn his focus on this/his thread again ;-)

Andy, the Ginger-shot is my fav from your latest set for it's colors and selective DoF.

Rafael, both "Bird of paradise"-shots are beautifully done. I like the rendering of the old Nikkor's a lot. The first 20/3.5UD-portrait is very cool - love the 35/1.4's glow.

Ken, nice set! The big croc seems to act like a wave-breaker - the lee-side looks calm compared to the windwards-side ;-)

Reagan, the jetty-memorial is a nice catch to keep the fishermen-terminology.

Nikon FG, with the 10.5cm f2.5 lens mounted. Taken with the D800 + 55 1.2 S. Now wait, how do I know the images of door knobs and magazines I took today were in focus, correct exposure, the depth of field I was looking for, heck even a reasonable composition How did us humans survive for so long without instant gratification??

Samy, part of the fun of using film-cameras is the excitement when pulling the freshly developed* film out of the spool/tank. In some cases shooting with vintage gear is such a great experience that the pictorial output is never as nice as the joy while handling well-crafted old gear. I'm a weirdo** in this matter, but sometimes I don't care for the final pictures - the process of shooting with a Leica M3, framing with that fantastic finder, the feel/haptic of this superbly engineered equipment is more important than looking at the pictures done with it.
I'm sure the same feelings can be achieved by using vintage Nikon-gear too.
Happy shooting, Georg ;-)

*) and properly fixed and rinsed
**) "a fondler" in the Leica-terminology

No way! I'm just "trapped" into other things for now and for a time photography means to me reading FM and very little else... my gear is collecting dust... I really want to comment sometimes on some pictures here but there are so many great pictures deserving attention and I feel guilty to stop only for one...

Mihai, I really hope we'll see some of your work here again soon. Maybe you can step out of your trap, but don't rush it ;-)

Thanks Reagan, I'm still around, but mostly lurking, since school is occupying 90% of my time now.
