Samy, great photos from DC. I went to the wall at first light in the morning and still could not get photos without people in them

I had to do a product shot of new reusable market bags today. Sorry Reagan, I used the 180mm.

I met with the gentleman that is interested in using some of my campus pictures in their brochure... He really liked many of the shots and a couple of them gave him ideas for other areas where they need photos/artwork. The possibility is very high that I will get published! I am so excited...

Nice party for your niece Ron, and looks like good pizza too! I did note the Ravens cap but I was in DC today.

A few pictures from the Vietnam Memorial, all with the 55 1.2.

The memorial wall.













And statues near the memorial.























These are great, thanks for sharing these! I had a lot of family that served, and thank God most came home! Unfortunately, for my uncle his home was robbed, and they took his two time purple heart rings, damn b@stards! I'd say they were very lucky uncle Joe wasn't home, or they'd not be very capable of leaving, well, at least without bags...

Thanks. Actually, I'm down the road a bit near Blacksburg. That photo was taken over in Craig County.

(By the way, my name is Jim.)

Beautiful set Reagan... you may even motivate me to switching aperture rings on the two 50 f/1.4 lenses I own, one S and one S.C. Nicely done!

Was this you Curtis?

When I saw this I thought for sure Curtis was selling off his equipment.

Boy would I love to wander through all this gear! But then I noticed when visiting my local camera shop that they had three boxes of old lenses tossed in together. I guess there is a great deal of rather worthless camera gear lying around. We're actually looking for what is a rather rarified class of lenses... old Nikkors that still have a great deal of life in them. I'm always amazed at what folks on this thread are posting from these old beauties. I may not be buying, but I'm certainly NOT selling...

Welcome Jim. I'd encourage you to add your first name to your profile so those of us with memory problems won't have to work quite so hard. I have at assume that a young man like Leighton forgot your name because he's be sipping too many beers as he convalesces...

Many of us list our gear as well so we can track one another's kit building and offer recommendations for spending other people's money...

Love the shots of the Vietnam Memorial Samy. Always nice to see the 55 f/1.2 put to work.

And Ray, your zoo shots are delightful. Thanks for helping the less fortunate among find copies of the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF. It still baffles me that anyone would sell this excellent lens.

To the question about lens acquisition in which the 180 f/2.8 AI-s was mentioned. I took some photos for a friend who was reading from a book to which she'd contributed a story. Most of the time I sat at the rear of the room with the 180 at f/2.8 shooting away. The lens performed beautifully with sharp, contrasty images. I love this lens. It is a great value for money.

Many great images the past few pages.

Reagan, your orchids are beautiful.

Samy, nice series from DC.

Chuong, beautiful image of your daughter.

Rafael, lovely ship model.

Jim, great image from the App Trail.

Thank you to Ray, Ronny, and Leighton for the comments on my image.
