Very nice Leighton. Only one cardinal error though - you're proving that Barbara does all the work while you mess about with a camera all day


And at the end of the day she's posting in the blog calling him BOSS! I have three DSLRs and two SLRs and my wife does not treat me this way!

MommaEwe and Elle Mae (?) checking each other out is a good backdrop.

Great way to engage oneself Peter. I go both to local nurseries and to a garden center when looking for a bit of color to brighten my day and inspire my shooting. In this set though, it is the typewriter keys that tickle my fancy. Well seen!

What you don't see Mihai, is the twinkle in Barbara's eye and the tongue in her cheek as she types that...

I believe it is common wisdom that women's most effective ploy is to have men BELIEVE they are in charge...

We all know that is seldom the situation...

I know Curtis! I fact my grandfather who actually was a very wise man used to share a saying that in my poor translation looks like: "A man is the head of the family but a woman is the neck. And the neck twists the head... "

Following my own advice to Kevin! Sometimes one runs out of inspiration even living in a beautiful place like Knysna so I went to a local nursery and asked permission to take some pictures - all with the 105 2.5 ai - some with the equivalent tube to a PN -11 which I have now acquired and eagerly await!


Peter, thanks for the color!

Love the shot Georg! Wonder how it would look rotated 180 degrees?

A local contest popped up where they want some sort of a view on the street. They didn't give a time when the pic needed to be taken, this is what I am thinking of entering. I took the pic when I first got the 50mm Series E, but didn't really know anything about my camera (ISO6400, daytime?!) Anyway, I tried my new post process, what do you all think?

Kevin, I like it just as is. Nicely done.

Very nice Leighton. As to who is the boss, I would have to say that lamb seems to have things completely under control.

AND it has rust in the image - always a favorite subject of mine.

Great shot!

Thanks Leighton and Scott for the previous comments.



Nikon knew about zoom creep, the knob at the bottom of the 80-200mm focusing/zoom ring is there as a lock, turn it clockwise and it locks the ring in place.

Just a quick update - will come back later:

two recent acquisitions: the Ai'd Fisheye-Nikkor showed up early today and I finally got the brochure about the local Heinkel-history



Congrats Georg, she is a beauty, looks like in better condition than my older F version.

Some shots from a short walk through my hometown, lenses of choice were the new to me 16/3.5 and the 180/2.8ED:



I'm getting warm with the 180/2.8ED now ;-) a seagull waiting for seconds from the fishermen



Georg great set as usual, but being a birder I liked this one; great OOF background.
By the way thank you for the comments.
I think a used 600mm/5.6 is cheaper than a used car

Samy,

Thanks. I shoot a little of everything, flowers, landscape, wildlife, birds, mostly sitting except for the eagles at Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi (near where I live). Sometimes I shoot wildlife out of a blind and on a tripod/monopod. I was looking at a 600 f5.6 AiS. I currently use an 80-400 or 300 f4 AFS, but want something longer I don't have to mortgage the house for....

There isn't too else but the eagles to shoot in January in Iowa (no snow even). We did have a little freezing rain so I ran out and took these with my 105 Ai.

thanks again for the quick response.

Jim







+1, stunning image.

Really like this one Jim. we're expecting some of that nasty ice today.:
Scott(


+1 Jim. Very nice.
