Well, about the only good thing to happen yesterday was that I received Nikki in the mail. After a really crappy night at work, I came home and attached the lens and played in the fog for a few minutes. It was a nice way to unwind and relax before heading off to bed. This is a 3 shot pano.

I won't have any serious time to spend with it until the weekend, but hopefully I will get to play around the shop tonight. Now, off to bed!

Ray, I love those flower shots... catching the bee is quite delicious. And yes, fast glass is a great pleasure, especially if you're a bokeh junky, which clearly you are. That, of course, is one of the fun things about shooting with tubes. You can be stopped down and STILL create luscious bokeh. This is wide open, but at f/4.5, bokeh brought to you via the PK-13 on the 80-200 f/4.5 AI.


Curtis, you have been knocking the flower shots out of the park! I really appreciate the fact that you are able to use so many different lenses as well.

Peter, I liked particularly this one.
What was your distance to the flower?

Fantastic first shot Tony. Southern California is definitely looking more winter like than Northern California at the moment. Enjoy your time with Nikki. I guess it is time for me to think seriously about where I'll be taking her.

The 500 Reflex continues to impress Peter. This is definitely a great way to spend a bit of free time. Nicely done. I may have to put some tubes on the 400 f/5.6 AI-s ED-IF for a bit of longer fun... Yes, we do inspire one another, which is a wonderful thing...

Jose - thank you. I was about 1M away (MFD with pn 11) the others were about 1.5 M. More great shots from your holiday - judging by the walls in the amphiheatre they probably had gladiators and animals mauling each other to death. Strange that such advanced people could be so savage in their pleasure?

Curtis- thanks. Do you still have your 500 - I remember you bouight it but don't seem to have used it much.

Yea the first one does it for me too. It looks like they don't do a whole lot to preserve the place. Or am I wrong?

Thank you Mark, Peter, Leighton and Ray.

Yes Leighton, I had the same impression, though some houses in the town are better preserved.
In 1971 Pink Floyd performed live in the arena, but without audience other than roadies, cameramen and sound engineers.
