Fianlly got out this afternoon with a camera instead of golf clubs, fishing rods etc....have to make the most of summer

At our weekly food market which is held in the ground of our local Montessori school. It's open from 4pm to 8pm and there are food stalls and a bar serving beer and wine. You take your own chairs although there are a couple of benches.

Some images (5H30 pm slightly overcast). All with D200 + ai'd 50mm f2

Peter, very nice set from the local market! I like especially the last two shots ("Heaven in every Bite" is quite a promise...). Btw, there's nothing wrong with spending some time with a fishing rod instead of a camera.
I've fished 2011 like a maniac and only a very few times last year. Missed the quiet hours on the water 2012...
Hope I can mix photography and fishing this year in a better way.

I miss fishing a lot as well. I used to go Trout fishing all the time, but I haven't been in a VERY long while.

Peter, thanks for firing up the time-machine! Love your set from the 80's.

Tony from CA - the storm-front is wonderfully captured. I like especially the framing with the slim warped strip of earth under the sky.

Tony from DC - fantastic series with Nikki! My personal favs are #21, #24, #26 and the vultures-shots.

Scott, I like the your choice of framing on the gate-detail. Coming back to certain subject to shoot it in different light, maybe with different lenses or from another angle is always a good idea.

Chuong, nice action-shot with your 16/3.5!

Jose, another beautiful macro-shot! I hope you can find a cheaper copy of the 35/2.8 PC-Nikkor.

Jose, Leighton and Scott - thanks for your kind comments on the green-stuff-image!

Leighton, I've never tried trout-fishing. The rivers and streams here are getting cleaner and clearer every year and demanding species like trouts come back. So - maybe there's some fly-fishing in my future ;-)
Here's a mediocre picture of my most loved rod and reel - both are from the 70's and I've tried to process the image accordingly:

vintage ABU Legerlite swing-tip-rod and Shakespeare-reel (with ball-bearing!!!) - D700, Ai'd Nikkor S-Auto 50/1.4

Very cool Georg, and the processing matches. I have a reel that's almost like that, a Garcia Mitchell 300 from the seventies. The trout streams around here are very nice and clean, and well stocked. Nothing like getting one of those things on your fly rod! What excitement.

Thanks, Leighton! Speaking of Garcia - some the old ABU-catalogues were beautifully illustrated, lot's of wonderful shallow-DoF-shots.

I've been away for a week and as usual I am way behind. My mother isn't doing well so I took a trip to Ohio to spend some time. I had a great visit and spent her 90th birthday with her. She has good days and bad days but over all she had quite an improvement.
I didn't have much time for photography but I did stop at Rarity Mountain to see the panoramic view. Here's a shot using the 16mm 3.5 trimmed.

Ray, great to hear from you and welcome back. Some things in life are much more important than photography (and no, I'm not talking about fishing).
Very nice panoramic!

Jose, I always tick the "Completed Listings" and check just the ones that sold to get an idea of what a current price is for a particular item. When I checked current listings this one stands out....for 35mm f/2.8 PC Nikkor's

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-PC-Nikkor-35-mm-F-2-8-Lens-Mint-Condition-/181060153859?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item2a2806b203

Very end of the ais line - this one did not sell the last THREE times (perhaps more) the person listed it. Which just proves that what some people ask for some items isn't reasonable, or near it's actual value. However...in the completed listings are these four (+ more)

Sold for $349 BIN

A shot from this morning. Cant blame the Nikkor for the flare - had a cheap UV-filter on it and couldn't remove it quick enough with cold fingers:

Nice images from the market Peter. I'll take one of those roasted butternut and feta springrolls. Sounds yummy.

Thanks for the comment Georg. I like this shot of the diver. But he only has three fingers!
