Can't be hard to put the coordinates into the GPS, I'm interested to know what you find


The house, which was built by my Grandfather, was moved whole to the town of Hammon.
Which is strange for me as I have memories in this house, but in two completely different locations!

Here's the coordinates.

35.740247,-99.396498

If you zoom in you can still see the tornado shelter just 80 meters or so North of the road.
No trace of the house, barn, coop, cistern . . . . things disappear fast.

Three generations of MG sports cars

Mine was like the blue MGA but I remodelled it against a highway wall, shortening it considerably!


The blue one is pretty classy, and a nice shot against the sky. I wouldn't mind an MGA (obviously I would need to employ my own mechanic to keep it in good condition…), though my all time favourites might be a two tone Austin Healey or an XK120 like those pictured a few pages back.

Andy, nice lens collection. Is this a self-imposed limit of nine so that they each have a place in the camera registry?

John, neat old tornado shelter. Careful exploring it as who knows what is hiding down there.

Nuno, beautiful 85 1.4. Now that is a hunk of glass.

Steve, really like the first image of the blossoms at the rear of Notre Dame. The background is very nicely rendered.

Peter, great old cars.


Everyone, thank you for the likes on the images I posted.

Oh shucks you really meant moving the whole house in your original post!

Yep - the house was worth nothing out in the middle of nowhere, so they jacked it up, put it on a big trailer and hauled it to a small plot of land across from the park in the middle of town. Easy to do out in the middle of nowhere!

It does look very good James!

It isn't easy to focus at f/1.4 though, and the light assist isn't always dead on. I was now looking at the shots I took a couple of hours ago and some are not as sharp as I would wish (or as sharp as I would get them when shooting with the 85/2 at f/2).



Keep both. Part of the charm of these old lenses is their "imperfect nature". And at the very least, if you want a smaller/lighter kit lens with a little more reach than a 24, the 85/2 fits the bill perfectly.

jhinkey, great picture of tornado shelter from 19 years ago, when you explain the reimaging process, does that basically mean, using your 800 you just took a picture of the image on the slide? thanks joanlvh

Yep, though a little more complicated than that with the 55/3.5 and bellows+slide attachment . . .

Not a good day today, this is about four miles from where I live, good thing that is is downwind, bad that people are losing their homes and firefighters are getting hurt.

San Marcos hills, I went to the top of a hill with a view, it was really smoky at first and you could hardly see what was going on.

Smoke was thick, The firefighters were working to save structures, not to put out the wildfire.

Wow, Rafael. Hope you and your family are safe and far from the fires.

Smoke from the Carlsbad blaze made for a strange, almost Monet-like, sunset.
