I went out for some night shooting tonight. I brought a few lenses. It was a bit foggy, so a bit hard to get those really clear.

This is with my 35mm f/2.0 @f/8 (I really like this lens..)

This one was with the 50mm f/1.8 @f/1.8 (I kind of like shooting bicycles....)

Some Washington DC architecture today, using the 28 3.5 PC-Nikkor.

All structures are on or just off Massachussets Avenue.

The 80-200/4.5 is an old favorite as well. My first gateway into "Pro" glass. Works great with tubes too.

Thanks Saph! Like your shots from Massachussetts. The Residence Inn looks like a pano..
And in the shot with the big white house I see one electrical car and one electrical/gasoline hybride. Is there a green revolution going on?

Thought I'd play a bit with the 80-200 f/4.5 AI today and grabbed this with a 36mm Vivitar tube attached... playing. Didn't want to let Kevin have ALL the fun...

Kristian - Love both shots, but the first one is REALLY nice.

Samy - Good to pics from you again, I like the last one the best.

Curtis, very sharp and colorful. Backlighting really makes it pop.

I bought a new Toshiba Chromebook that just came out. It has a full HD IPS monitor and believe it or not, the images look better on it than my 27" IPS desktop monitor.

Thanks Leighton! I took similar shots with the 105mm 2.5 and the 50mm 1.8 but the 35mm worked a lot better!

One more set from Washington DC today.

First is election paraphernalia. I was more interested by the house in the back, nestled between two taller apartment buildings.

The Islamic Center further down the road. Interesting to check out its history. It was one of three Washington buildings taken over in the so called Hanafi siege in 1977.

Here's a page in Wikipedia about what happened: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1977_Hanafi_Siege

Kristian, thanks. I did try to fire off the shot when I saw the little white car come into the frame. Now I see there's a Prius right in front of it. Nah, just coincidence I bet

Last photo post for today With Curtis and Kevin posting such wonderful pics from Nikkor manual zooms, I realized I need to put up a pic of my second copy of the 50-300 4.5 lens (don't ask ). This one is older; its the original version of that super zoom, probably produced about 1967.

On Destoutz web site:

And Raphael, I still don't have film back yet from the other copy.

Just got the 28mm 2.8 AIS and took it out for some shots yesterday. I am really liking the lens overall. The size is just great and I really wish all lenses had the hard stop infinity focus.

This one is a 2 shot pano.
