This must have some of the same DNA as the Chevy colored Ford I posted earlier.

This band shows that some aging rockers just never give up.

Their music still rocks - though the looks are a bit unusual

And the name ... Piccadilly Rats - well it seems to suit them !!!

These are good. I don't get into town much but there are always so good characters.

OMG Jay I looked at your first photo and thought it looked familiar, but this photo clinches it. I know right where this photo was taken!

Jay here's a Mustang that was parked in the same parking space as your Ford from a page back

Some pictures from today, shot for a local paper. Germans wanna lay pipe* too, and this one was quite a sight ;-)


D3s, 20/3.5 Ais - the "rudder" is just a fin to stabilize the floating tube


D3s, 20/3.5 Ais too here - over 1000 tons on 320 wheels/40 axes


D3s +20/3.5 - pulling the hoisting sling


D3s, 85/2.8PC - preparing the hoisting sling


D3s + 20/3.5 - on the hook (I love classic tugs and couldn't withstand to include this one into the shot)


85/2.8PC - the tube (the first of 39 piles) will act as fundament for a wind power plant in the Baltic Sea


85/2.8PC - after some more pressure tests the floating tube is right now on it's way to the windpark (in tow)

Sorry for breaking the 4-images-rule, I hope you guys don't mind. I've shot some more pictures with a Fuji X-Pro (more environmental portrait-stuff) and some with a 200/2, but using MF-glass worked just fine for the images above.

Georg, terrific series! That is one big piece of pipe. The diameter of the steel cables in this shot are amazing!

Thank you for the comments on the Acadia Beehive.

And now a hint of fall. Taken with the 24 2.8 NC. First use of this lens. Seems to render decent images.

Samy, I'm glad you liked the b&w landscape. I actually shot in b&w in my mind that afternoon as it was mostly a very flat green in very flat terrain, but the clouds looked cool.

The following are not the most photogenic renderings, but given the appearance of cars in the last couple of pages I thought the car aficionados would at least appreciate the subject matter. It was nice to get out again this past Saturday with some MF lenses in hand, even if it was midday with less than ideal lighting, and crowds to boot. Apologies that I don't know the names of the cars, but I do enjoy their design a lot.

All D700, either the 20mm f3.5 AI or 50-135 f3.5.

Thank you Scott. Your new lens has beautiful color and clarity. It is a keeper and the photo is excellent!
Georg what a wonderful job capturing the sheer size of those pipes. Excellent series!
Ray you have to love the wings on that red Chevy. I love how they fill the frame!

A few recent shots with my D700 and 20mm f2.8 Ai-s and 35mm f1.4 Ai-s... this was at a "Tweed Ride" in Victoria BC, Canada. The idea is, you get dressed up in some vintage looking tweed, and ride your vintage looking bicycle around in a large group of people, stop here and there for refreshments and games, some music and dancing, and then convene at a final destination for more merry making. Unfortunately the weather was less than ideal for the riding portion of the event, so we curtailed the ride and went straight to the final venue for snacks and beverages... Procedes from the entry fees goes toward repairing and shipping unwanted bicycles to developing nations in Africa.

(the last one isn't an MF lens, it was with my 24-70... many more portraits can be found on my flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/geoff_robson/sets/72157635996301756/ )

Both the 20mm and 35mm are fairly recent additions to my bag, and both have quickly proven them selves as stunning performers. Some of you may recall my post a while back about getting a bunk copy of the 20mm on ebay... well, needless to say the new copy I have is a knockout lens!

Thanks for looking, and sharing your thoughts!

Happy Birthday Curtis, even if Iīm a bit late.

Didnīt find the time to catch up yesterday and it seems I missed a whole lot of outstanding photograph.

The ī66 Pontiac Tempest and Tweed Ride shots really stand out though. Awesome stuff!

Lots of good stuff in recent pages. Fun cars and tweed and Curtis' birthday (72nd? 80th? ). Scott, nice scenery. With the lack of recent rain, wonder if the colors this fall are going to be muted. Skyline Drive down in Leighton's neighborhood can be very scenic later in October, let's see how this years colors turn out.
