Here's a few from our band day at our little local lounge. D600 and the 35mm 1.4 AIS

My sweetheart


The band members




Not everyone was listening


And the place was well stocked

Thanks Ray!

Looks like you guys had a great night out. Love the colors of the bottles shot.

Happy birthday Curtis!

Wow, Curtis, 80!! Congratulations and may you have many happy returns of the day.

What would have been an insult is now a compliment - you don't look a day over 65!

I have 6 months to the big 70 and wish I only looked 70 - must be the sun

Oosty, oh goosh, i am very sorry! i was just making a silly joke toward Mr. Curtis, this is not his age, and I am now feeling very childish, and bad, please understand, and forgive my poor taste humor! I hope Curtis understands as well!

Thanks for the nice comments.

Jeff - I love your set, especially the first one with your daughter.

Chuong - What a small world sometimes, I hope you sell the 16 soon. And yes Curtis, I am interested, but in the 3.5 version.

Curtis - Speaking of you...the place doesn't seem the same when you're gone, glad to see you back, and happy 72nd Birthday!

Andy - I'm going to say it's a 1969.

Ray - Looks like that 38/1.4 is perfect for those shots in the bar. I like the bottles, but they all look empty.

Alan - Good to see you again. I'm glad that Malachi is better, I KNOW what you went through!

David - Love the Harley shot!

John, welcome, it would appear that I missed your first contribution to the thread. That one and this one are both outstanding. The 105 is probably most at home in the studio taking portraits as it was made for. Looking forward to seeing more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CURTIS!!!!

I know you're on sabbatical but please visit as much as you can.

Having said that - I don't have much to offer - I've been playing with the Leica R lenses.

I want to make a video using the 400mm f5.6 so I pulled it out and took some shots. I wasn't gong to post this here - but I put it on flickr - and Phillippe said it wasn't fair to take pictures of an old lady with a 400mm - according to him you have to use a 50mm - when I questioned him about it, he said, in French (in French if you don't mind): "A vaincre sans péril, on triomphe sans gloire" ( roughly translated "To win without risk is to triumph without glory') .

So here's the offending shot.

(see Curtis you have to come back to mediate in these matters)

Me, acting as a snob, silently refused to take any of the murals that littered the streets of Georgetown, Penang
Even after our local guide brought me specially to them (you like taking photos? you'll love them!)
Had to muscle my way through the crowd, deliberately make a show of focusing, cocking the shutter but not take any
Polite thing to do? Thanks goodness it was film, lest he asked to see 'em!

Certainly not a knock on the murals though
They're amazingly beautiful and lifelike, usually incorporating a deliberate play with the environment
Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic, he's certainly a genius
*here's a sample: http://www.onlypenang.com/where-to-go/penang-street-art-wall-painting-at-penang/
But surely, they've been shot to death

Lovely lovely touches everywhere, wire sculptures, graffiti here and there adding to the quaintness of the town
I gave in and indulged myself a lil'
The storefront of a bike rental shop
Only for you guys of course
Only for you guys

George, Philip and Leighton,

Thank you for the kind words! Definitely going to post some more as sharing pushes me to actually shoot with my camera.

Awesome work guys! Seeing these photos are really inspiring.

- John
