Haven't posted a photo in here for awhile now
Checking online, I also found out my shutter count stands at 13757...
Oh well, needed to familiarize myself with the gear before my hols so they had a quick run-out yesterday (AF) and today (MF)

Ah, I see Leighton's got a new toy. But you are still missing the 135 f2, correct?


Hi Samy, yes, a new toy, I won it by chance. I'm not lusting for the 135/2 as much now since finding a like new 135mm f2.8 QC.

BTW, I finally found out where my grandparents lived in Baltimore, 6617 Hudson St.

Hi gang, hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Last week, I rented a Zeiss 25/2 and did some comparisons to my Nikkor 28/2.8 ais. Bottom line, the trusty 28/2.8 acquitted itself very well.

The Zeiss is a nice lens, and it did a very good job in presenting fine detail and giving that "contrasty" look that Zeiss is known for. On the other hand, I had expected the Z lens to be in a different league in its control of spherical and chromatic aberrations and I was a bit disappointed in this regard. While it showed some improvements (shot wide

Beautiful shot Jeff. I'm sure Zeiss makes some VERY nice glass, but I'll never know.

Don't remember seeing these so no worries. I like the first one the best.

Hope you get out soon!

Andy - hope you have a speedy recovery! Glad at least you can still keep sharing your work, love the shot of the valley - good C&C (composition and conversion).

John, Pete, Jose and many others, amazing photos as always.

Some with the 55mm 2,8 micro. With tubes at f/4 and f/11 (ISO went up a lot) Hand held due to ease of working with a child.



Mark, I really like the first two.

Leighton, just looked up the address. Goodness, I used to go somewhere near there to my last heads down coding job, which was literally a few minutes from that spot. Not going to have time today, but will plan to do a swing by and see if I can get a pic or two of the area later this week or the next weekend.

For me it brings back memories of writing hundreds of lines of code a day, and a week later wondering what on earth did I write. Lot easier to be a dumb manager.

Hey thanks Samy. I couldn't get that much feel for it from Google Earth. I do remember the garage way in the back of the property, it always had an old beat up 50 something Studebaker sitting there. The neighborhood looks much nicer now than it did when I was visiting there back in the 60's.

Sorry to hear this Ken. Good friends like that are hard to find. If you want, we can call you SLACKER instead (Better call myself that too, I've not picked up a camera since 7 Aug as my studies are really kicking in)

Good news though, on the PT side and getting back to the pool. It's amazing how little time it takes for a body to become "out of shape".

Then, a *TINY* dab of *searing* hot chili paste is added. This is amazingly hot stuff.

Then a crunchy piece of toasted rice or something like that is added to add a bit of body to the meal.

After it's all rolled up the meal is cut in half.

, my 2002 Sunfire I'm told, just broke 100,000 miles (oldest son drives it), the 2003 Ranger broke 100,000 miles two years ago, and the 2005 Crown Vic also broke 100,000. I consider them just broken in.

I don't remember why Datsun changed to Nissan either, but yeah, throws me for a loop too.

I am pretty sure that my Dad's Datsun 510 was the first car he owned that ever broke 100,000 miles. None of his US cars were able to hold together that long.

Because I grew up with a 510 in the family, I never ever got used to the name Nissan.

What sort of protections do credit cards offer over there? If they're like the US, file a claim with the credit card company.

So now I am in contestation with a guy who claims other buyers saw it and it was ok, and me stuck with a worthless piece of junk I paid 300 euros!

I'm working diligently to catch up on this thread, for the time being... then it's back to homework like this:

Research a drug product called Stalevo to identify what is in this product and how it works to provide therapeutic benefit for a patient with PD.
carbidopa, levodopa and entacapone

Discuss the mechanisms of action for each component and how the components interact.

Levodopa
Current evidence indicates that symptoms of Parkinsonís disease are related to depletion of dopamine in the corpus striatum. Administration of dopamine is ineffective in the treatment of Parkinsonís disease because it does not cross the blood-brain barrier. However, levodopa the metabolic precursor of dopamine, does cross the blood-brain barrier, and is presumably converted to dopamine in the brain. This is thought to be the mechanism whereby levodopa relieves the symptoms of Parkinsonís disease.

Carbidopa
When levodopa is administered orally, it is rapidly decarboxylated to dopamine in extracerebral tissues so that only a small portion of a given dose is transported unchanged to the central nervous system. Carbidopa inhibits the decarboxylation of peripheral levodopa, making more levodopa available for delivery to the brain.

Entacapone
Entacapone is a selective and reversible inhibitor of catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT).
COMT catalyzes the transfer of the methyl group of S-adenosyl-L-methionine to the phenolic group of substrates that contain a catechol structure. Physiological substrates of COMT include DOPA, catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine) and their hydroxylated metabolites. When decarboxylation of levodopa is prevented by carbidopa, COMT becomes the major metabolizing enzyme for levodopa, catalyzing its metabolism to 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-L-phenylalanine (3-OMD).

Thanks Leighton.
It's a composite of three shots:
1 - Move doggy to lie in front of books
2 - Move doggy and have her do the 'greet' pose at the rear of the books
3 - Remove doggy and focus on spine of the books

Overall, just two attempts. The first set failed because the books fell at the end of the third shot (held them at the edges with sticky-tack. And I was lazy to bust out the remote (used the self-timer instead set at 10 secs, awful control).
