It seems the Taj in Salford is not the real thing .... boo hop

Now what am I going to do .... I was thinking of a pilgrimage there ....

Salford I mean .... not the Taj ....

I treat my body to a temple .... every Friday night at the Taj Mahal curry shop ....

Sorry .... you will need to forgive my ramblings ... it's too long without a camera in my hands

Any way I decided to treat you all ...... oh no !!!

The Mariners Canal only this time is landscape

Apparently it's not the Taj Mahal ....... ???

I caught them walking between the houses at the cross junction
Streets barely large enough for a compact car
Hand whipping open the flap to fumble for lenses

They passed and I swore silently under my breath
And walked into the potter's home slash store
Cold cold interiors
Kiln-fired glaze and heart-racing pricetags giving out warmth

When I put on my footwear and stepped out onto the streets
There they were! On their last punt, must click

Philippe, loved the Bir-Hakeim bridge, specially the second take; is it a homage to the battle of WWWII?



Yes it is. French + British fighting Germans + Italians, what a pity! It was worse than a civil war! Long life European Community !

David, nice airy shots - are those done at or near sunset? The light is so warm and soft…

Buddy, is this some kind of agility-training with your dog? Nice shot!

Fons, your country looks like mine today. Sunny, but almost no signs of fresh green. But your B&W looks fresh and airy.


Georg, yes. Kind of. It's a routine the girlfriend trained with her dog. She walks along and Amy runs slalom between her legs. It helps Amy focus on listening to commands afterwards. As a shephard she really likes doing all kinds of tricks, but she is a bit chaotic in following them, hence the slalom routine

Apparently it is this:

The location seems close to a TV studio and I wonder who was making video with a 200/2 AIS . . .

MF Glass Alert:

16/3.5 AI EX condition for $399 - I really don't need a third one . . . .

http://www.keh.com/camera/Nikon-Manual-Focus-Fixed-Focal-Length-Lenses/1/sku-NK06009030926E?r=FE

Might be worth a shot - it could be only EX because of the engraving.

many people don't know that Nikon actually made a 300mm f2.0 as well... quite a few copies of this incredible lens have also been modified for cinema use, as seen below:

Pretty sure that Gregory (NikkorAIS) had one . He was around at the start of this thread but sold most if not all of his MF gear and he had a LOT of it !

I'll let you know how my third attempt at a 16mm f/3.5 AI turns out.
I was done with ebay on that subject, but KEH is a safer bet. I could care less about engravements as long as the rear element isn't cracked, it has no fungus, or the front element has been sand blasted...

^^^^ is that Iggy Pop as focus puller? Cool looking set-up. I recall some outstanding gymnastics-shots by Nancy done with the mighty 300/2.

Ken, the Phantom-model-jet-shot looks very cool. Congrats to your 100-300/5.6!

Steve, the "BBC-pano" is very nice. In my opinion it's more "balanced" framing-wise than your first shot of it.

Chin, great snap of the playing kids. Hope the pottery is still in one piece ;-)



Chin and Jay - thanks for your kind words on the spring-shots! Yes, wide open and at very close range (those flowers are tiny) it will completely blur out the background. Should have shot the second image with a wider lens, 35 or 28mm from a slightly higher point of view, I was just to lazy to re-shoot this one.

A quick grab of my best cat Pauly sitting on my desk rearranging my files. Shot with my BNIB Micro Nikkor 55mm f2.8 @ f2.8 & 1/250th sec, flash used. Photo is significantly cropped.

I used my D700 with the pop-up flash. This lens is scary sharp. I have only tested it so far at f2.8, IE: this photo being one of those tests.

I'm finally caught up on work and it looks like a clear and sunny California weekend coming up. I hope to get lots of good photos.

I want to get out and use this 55 and also tswitzer's 24mm f2.8 AI-s which I also bought.
