I love these shots. It's been years since I visited Virginia and I appreciate the photos. This one is especially nice!







Wonderful to see you and Barbara in this fine photo. I'm also delighted that you've taken our friend Nikki on an historic tour of Virginia. Lovely set, but this one makes me smile...

I guess this is what farmers do during the winter...

Winnipeg and the Red River is host to the longest skating trail in the world.

I walked along the river for a while yesterday on my way back from the store and caught a couple people (and a pooch) enjoying the mild (-20c with wind) weather.

105/2.5









Dylan, I really like the first image here. Great candid of the skater and very nice background rendering.

You've heard about "old dogs" learning new tricks... it is true...

Congratulations Laura. It is never too late to explore our passions, whether for photography or learning. Well done!

Delicious shot Monty! I haven't been around of late, so I missed the addition of the 50 f/1.2 AI to your kit. Well done!

Your new friend seems to be settling in. That is wonderful.

Great series with Nikki Leighton! I like the first image and the reflecting pool image. The self portrait is not bad either. I visited there once and it is a beautiful place. Even though it is the winter, it does not look to unseasonable in your images.

+1 nice self portrait, and as mentioned in another post, I like the low angle of the shot.

Monty, I like the optometrist shots.

Dylan, I've heard of this skating trail, looks like fun, and an neat alternative transportation mode in the winter. Godd shots too, esp the sharp MF capture on the second shot.

A little late, but Leighton, I've gone back to look at the following shot a bunch of times, great image!

Love it Monty. I bet with 90% accuracy I could pick your images out of a pile just due to the style (which I really like).

I think I forgot to upload this one. Two shot pano with the 100/2.8 Series E.

Mount Rainier in the background and the Snoqualmie valley down below. I-90 is down there in the trees somewhere. You can get on I-90 in downtown Seattle and go all the way to Boston without getting off it.

Thanks! And thanks to the others that have also commented.

I debated showing a different, much sharper take on the girl lacing up. I decided I liked the eye contact enough to make it my choice.

Here is the other shot for comparison, you be the judge.













I wish the one with the eye contact was as sharp as this one. My excuse is that I just got new glasses for the first time since 3rd grade the day before. They aren't really to bring things into focus, but they have a prism to align my eyes and reduce fatigue and the severe eye pain I've been experiencing lately.

I think I hate them for MFing.

Yes I like the eye contact as well. Good work!

Been looking for one of these for years but Santa found it first. Here with a 50mm f1.2

It's official... I am addicted to MF lenses. I sold my last two AF lenses and picked up a Series E 28 2.8 and the ever popular 80-200mm with the square back. They have to come cross country, but I am super excited.

Somehow it is all your fault, I know it is...

Welcome to the family - you've made the first step of a long journey - admitting to yourself that you have a condition (notice I did not say "problem" because my MFNAS has never been a problem . . .)
