Since I've posted enough pictures of her in this forum to make her an honorary member, I feel like I should let you know that my dog had gone into surgery today for an intestinal issue and didn't make it through. She was fifteen, fairly old for a large dog who lived life at top speed until a couple of years ago when arthritis caught up with her. I couldn't imagine a better, sweeter, more entertaining companion to have had over the past thirteen years, and I miss her like crazy.

The five pieces of wisdom my dog wanted to impart upon the world in her passing.

1. Make your peace with cats to promote social harmony if you have to, but never, ever, ever trust a cat. One minute they're your best buddy. The next minute, they're peeing on your bed.

2. If you find yourself imprisoned, escape. Do whatever you have to do, but you must escape.

3. Squirrels. The older you get, the less they matter.

4. You can sniff and lick at the same time if you're willing to stick your nose in it and your tongue is long enough to lick your nose.

5. Walks are great. Being outside is great. Walking outside is the best. You should try it. Take a dog with you. They'll show you how it's done.

And one last photo, G45 wide open on the 7.


Brad, sorry to hear that. We lost a pet this year too, it sucks.

Good wisdom, and nice portrait.

H.Lux, I find your fourth photo fascinating. There's a lot of interesting content in the photo to explore, without the photo becoming cluttered.

Here's a couple of photos from a walk I did today to try out my newest purchase, a zebra Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50/1.8 in M42 mount. I got it cheap since neither the aperture nor the "zoom" worked according to the seller, and the glass is very yellowed. I've fixed the focusing mechanism but haven't been able to fix the coupling between the aperture ring and the aperture yet, so I just set it to ~f/2.8 to try it out a bit. Seems like a nice little lens, and it focuses much closer than my Contax Planar 50/1.7 too.

Thanks, everyone. Much appreciated for the kind words.

D- she did, and she was happy and active right up until her last two days. We should all be so lucky.

Joe- hadn't considered canvas. I usually print B&W on neutral to cool rag, but I do have a roll of canvas. I'll have to give that a try. Thanks for the suggestion.

Nice golden colors there LightShow.

Not the best flower shot in the world, nor the best flower or bokeh lens, the Voigtländer 15/4.5. But given the usual sloppy handheld shooting technique I embrace the crop turned out impressive. NEX 5N.



The crop (no local fixing here..)
