Ian, that structure in the middle looks ancient and very impressive.

The second shot is of the "AI'd normal family" (at least my version of it). The big brother 55 1.2S is in the middle, the 50 1.4S to the right and the little 50 2 HC on the left. All ~ 40 years old and in rather good shape.

Those are in "Curtis's preferred condition(like new)" hope he doesn't see em he might be paying you a visit.

And now for some large aperture shots with the AI'd 50 1.4S. All at f/2.

This lens is a bit bigger than the 50 f2 HC, and smaller than the 55 1.2S. Plan to get a pic of all three together.

Very nice, could be northern Wisconsin

+1, what a unique perspective, most people would have said the black bars were in the way.

Nice shots, LZ. That second one has certainly has some symbolism thrown in. I'm sure the "Occupy" protestors would agree that the way some of these movers and shakers behind the columns of the stock exchange carry on it is as if the rest of us are looking on through prison bars as Monty pointed out.

Wocka! Wocka! That's some suit, Peter

Philip - was it shot out the front of a used lens shop?

Tree trunk with interesting bark. Looked like that tree had been around for a while. Again with the 50 1.4S.

And more with the AI'd 50 1.4S. This is ripples and chairs.

***** BLOG UPDATE *****

Monty's fifth and last post. well done Monty!

I know that feeling, today I was out and didn't realize how late it was, didn't have any camera with me except the iPhone, and there was a gorgeous sunset. iPhone doesn't do it justice so I didn't even attempt it. I'll see hawks and ospreys perched on street lights as I drive by, or in trees, and of course, I can't stop to snap 'em either.

Walked with the Ai'd 50 1.4S today. Utterly rued the decision to be lazy and not keep a tele such as the 300 or 400, or even the 180 in a bag; there was a very large hawk that was sitting in a tree and the 50 just couldn't reach far enough. One thing now that the leaves and the colors are gone, there's other things to see that were hidden before.

Peter.. glad I didn't have anything to drink when I saw this!

Good catch Phillip!

Actually, I already own all three... Though I have the S-C version of the 55 as well as the S and S-C version of the 50 f/1.4. I'm afraid when it comes to NMFAS I have a very serious case...

Dean, that's quite a visualization - the one about the used lens shop. I guess the smile gives it away

Oh now I get it, so the visit will be about adding the SC versions. Resistance is futile

Yes it's a round Pictish tower about 2000 years old (!!!) built entirely without mortar/cement by having two stone walls that lean inward/outwards against each other. It was there when the Romans invaded Britain under Julius Caesar (though they didn't get that far north) and I was completely impressed by it. There were 2 quite close together and one still had a passage between the walls. They were about 30' tall.

There are eternal possibilities for massaging one's kit Samy. Resistance IS futile... kit building is forever and then some...

Monty... 85mm is YOUR focal length. You keep impressing us with excellent work. Street photography can be a challenge, but you definitely are handling it well. I really enjoy your BW images.
