Ahh, I see Reagan is on the board. I shot this with him in mind... today in Berkeley.


Nikki, of course, with a little help from SEP 2.

Love the california girls and the Nikki photos
I don't remember who did the baseball series with the blurred leg rounding the bag but I loved all 3

Of course, without a tripod that is a bit of a stretch for me. And I don't have the tripod mount for that lens, so I don't often use the lens with that extender,


Curtis,

...The tripod collar you're missing is a 15 minute DIY project.

You reckon without my incurable bias toward aesthetics. That is the reason I will only buy pre-AI lenses that already have the Nikon AI conversion kit installed. It is also the reason I would NEVER mount anything but the tripod mount Nikon intended to put on that lens...

I don't put bumper stickers on my car either, so you get the idea. I love these lenses both for how they perform and for the aesthetic experience of enjoying their beauty. I'm not a snob, but it is one of the ways I find pleasure in life. That's probably why I like Mac computers...

I snapped this in north Berkeley and it was only later I noticed three of the people waiting outside a favorite food cooperative were preoccupied with their telephones... Shot with Nikki, converted with Silver Efex Pro 2.

But there was some color in Berkeley...

This is what folks were waiting for... from the Juice Bar Collective.

And across the street...

Curtis! amazing shots with the 24. Just one gripe. Regan would like to see that one beach shot a whole lot closer(the one with the blonde in it)

Peter those are amazing shots of the lightning.

Guess what? We were shopping...


Then I noticed a Berkeley police officer in plain clothes in front of the Apple store. Someone was up to no good...


But we arrived safely home and I saw the dogwood tree was finally in bloom...


And a yellow flower was blooming outside my kitchen window. I shot through the dirty glass...


Quite a day... and San Francisco remains on the agenda. Don't worry Leighton, you'll have your cable car ride...

No, you are not alone in your appreciation! Here is one from an older session with Ashley with the 105mm ƒ1.8. I just heard she is moving back into the area, so I will probably get to shoot some more with her this year.

These are from a little island off Hong Kong we visited today called Yim Tin Tsai (Little Salt Field) that I only found out about last week. People used to live here from around 300 yrs ago, but the whole island has been abandoned since the early 1990's (I think). Not sure why. The place is littered with colourful old derelict village houses and is starting to be over run by nature which makes for some cool photography. There is some life starting to happen here again with some organic gardening going on.

I'll be back here for sure to explore further

All taken with the 50/1.2 Ai-S.

Thought I'd try a little blue hour being inspired by Chins wonderful work. Next time a tripod is in order
D600 - 16mm 3.5 1/30 F3.5 ISO 6400


It's funny, but this shot made me realize what I was doing wrong with the 16mm. I kept trying to put the horizon really far, above or below, the center. I was getting some crazy distortion that just looked funky. I put the horizon closer to the center and viola, it's looked much better. So thanks for posting this lovely shot!

Love these shop front images of yours, and this one's great too. We need a shop front Nikki series.

There's was probably a Samsung Spy in the Apple store that needed arresting

These all with Nikki?

I'm glad Phillippe's not around. He used to call these kinds of shots "banal" - he's right of course, but all this nikki stuff makes me feel I should post something - so don't flame me - I'm just keeping my hand in.
