Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement. The prognosis looks good at this point. The only bad part is that I'll be out of commission for up to 8 weeks after. Bad timing for Barbara and I.

I will try to post an update after my surgery.

This really IS a special place in cyberspace and the only place I feel truly at home. Keep the pics coming, I'll need something to look at.


Bsst wishes Leighton. Will pray for a quick recovery.

I spent the day in downtown Raleigh NC today. Half the day was rain and half bright sun. Went lightweight with the X-Pro2 and a S mount Nikkor rangefinder 2.8cm f/3.5 lens adapted. Below are a couple of doors for Leighton from an old church founded in 1821.

Geek Alert - Technical info to follow

Hi group. I just wanted to pass along some information and an experience of mine that others may find useful regarding adapted lenses and adapters.

As some of us are using these great manual focus lenses adapted to various bodies, one point of potential frustration can be around inconsistency in adapters. It is important for adapters to ensure infinity focus and I agree that is critical, but it seems some adapters are made with specs that are very conservative around that goal. Meaning to ensure infinity focus, some may actually allow focus past infinity.

Great post George, this is indeed a real issue, took me three adapters to get it right on the Sony, the Kipon ended up working best. Thanks for sharing!

This snapshot is for Buddy. If I remember correctly, he collects NASCAR diecast. This is from the North Carolina Museum of History. North Carolina has deep roots in stock car racing. Again with the X-Pro2 and 2.8cm f/3.5 S mount Nikon rangefinder lens.

Funny how you sometimes catch yourself thinking of forum members when you are out shooting.

Beautiful scene Scott. I love snow, but don't have to deal with it the way you do up there. You have a lot of melting to do before tomorrow the first day of spring.

Reagan,
That would equate to Disney's Blizzard Beach for you then?

Since it is a little slow on the thread, I will post a few more from my ramble around the state capital yesterday. Still with the X-Pro2 and 2.8cm f/3.5 Nikon S mount from the 1950's.

Thanks for looking.

George







Iron fence around the old church from my earlier post.







Fountain outside the state capital







May only get one shot off defending the capital bldg, but would hate to be the recipient :)

Love everyone's work, Ken, Jose, Philippe, particularly liked George's use of the 28 3.5 of yore,

Drove out to Anza Borrego for the bloom that has made national news.

Went where few people go, do not like crowds, it is truly impressive to see little flowers sprouting from hot sand, and entire mountainsides colored by yellow flowers. Here is a teaser.

28mm 2.0 ais with a polarizer and the 18mm 3.5 ais.

Anza Borrego is filling with natural steel statues, this is a statue of a stage coach not yet properly rusted, they ran through here.

The photos do not convey the experience of being present, there are blooms everywhere where nothing is the norm.
