Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park

This was the driveway leading up to the house
He died in 1944 and his wife turned over a great deal of their property to the state
Beautiful blooms in the spring. Driveway is probably about a half mile up to the house
that overlooks a huge lake. 3 additional buildings in the back
Must have been a great place to party!

Need to do some catching up here as well

Andy, love the barn shot makes me think about the history this structure endured!

Rafael, The colors of the wild flowers are great against the sky, looks like they made quick work of that tree!

Kevin, Stunning shots of closeup flowers the b+w PP and composition of them are stunning!

Francessco, Congrats on the little ones birthday, loving the well done capture of the moment. Glad the weather behaved a bit so you can go out and see the beach!

Leighton the back light of the Heineken makes for a great capture . However the Burdock shot takes the cake and is simply stunning!

Reagan loving the peaceful park, seems very tranquil and well captured

Scott, Your Arcadia shots are making me want to do a long needed drive up the coast. I am also loving the barn with all the signs

Georg, Loving the architecture and people may have to look into that 35 if it is truly nice and small

Lestor, Amazing you were able to get the bee that sharp with their speed being handheld. Was it raw? Wish I could see more detail in their body

Quick run to the market with the GF to pick up some stuff for the week. IT is amazing how cheap this market is compared to city prices and the setting is what really sells it. Best part is it is only 2 blocks from our place. Karl -- https://www.facebook.com/pages/Karl-the-Fog/145697385477802 -- was still over taking the city when we went so the lighting was not ideal.

Looked in the morning and the thread seemed slow, everyone must have woken up later, and jumped on here

A trip to Arlington National Cemetery today, and used the 18 3.5 AIS. Also had couple of film options in the longer FL (S2 with the 8.5cm f2 and FG with the Leica 180 Apo Telyt), will have to wait and see how they turned out.

First of all the eternal rest of the many.

Due to an unfortunate incident, I had a lot of moisture in a phone and a camera. Popped them in a bag of rice, individually, and both recovered after a week of leaving them in the rice.

Guys, I have a bit of moist inside my 85/1.4 AIS due to the high humidity that was on top of the mountain of Pico.

What's the best way to dry it off? I left it in the sun during the day but it did not do much...

Reagan, maybe you needed to buy a white Chevelle instead.

Reagan wrote:
Nuno,I don't think I have ever commented on you images
but I have admired every one of them
I use the "like" button way too often but i am going to try and start chatting more often
The Chevelle has basically been put away for the summer just one more cleaning and maybe an oil change first
It has only been 400 miles since the last one

Guess she needs her own account then, without the buy and sell option.

Sorry Leighton but the combination of rain and the fact I was heading to Sue's condo to paint closets led me to leaving my camera in my car. We took Sue's car which was loaded with supplies for the condo. But we did stop at the market and loaded up with produce and some locally caught King salmon we enjoyed for dinner. We are always shocked by how good the prices are... and today we bought strawberries that are the best I've ever tasted... organic grown in Watsonville near the Pacific Ocean. They remind me of wild strawberries i picked as a boy in a field near my home. When Sue moves in to condo we'll likely visit the Sunday morning market which is about six or seven miles from her home to do the bulk of our weekly shopping. It is a year round market.

You'll have received a copy of the email I sent to the market managers asking whether this is a producer only market. I'll say one thing, it is HUGE...

What a shame about the tree Rafael. On the other hand, this may well be the first posting in the thread with this lens. """

Thanks for the kind words regarding the tree passing. A good 35-200mm is an excellent lens, but many are defective, the lens was so complex for its time that they seem prone to failure.

Cool beach images Francesco.

Good ball capture Ken.

Nice bumble bee Lestor

Great BW market images Ryan, is this SF? The peach fuzz in BW has great contrast

Just beautiful 8 mile lake with reflection and all John

Reflection and inspiration from your post Samy

For reflection I took a brief drive to the burned hills of San Marcos, this is three miles from my house as the Corvette drives.

Took the 135mm 2.0. as good a landscape lens as there is.

Did not do this for Joy, it was like attending a funeral, it is the right thing to do, be there, show support, take it in.

This is the new Palomar hospital, where I took the fire pictures if you remember. 40 miles away is Palomar mountain, in the back.

The trees are dead due to the grass/brush fire heat, trees do not normally burn in these Socal fires, they die from the heat.
