    Happy last Wednesday of 2013, fellow Nikonistas (and a Merry Christmas to all who are enjoying this particular Wednesday in that way). I'm up past midnight wrapping a couple of presents. Which means coffee. Which means grinding some beans. Which means using the same Moulinex coffee grinder that I received as a Christmas present over 20 years ago. 20 years! That means that this apparently indestructible kitchen appliance has ground beans for well over 15,000 pots of coffee. But I've still got some Nikon bodies that have lasted longer! Hope everyone has a peaceful day, and we'll catch up next Wednesday, on the first day of 2014.

    A bit of underexposure to enhance sunset color but otherwise as-is.
  5. [​IMG]Merry Christmas. Taken yesterday afternoon in Candiac.
  6. A very merry christmas to all!
  7. I recently inherited this old 'Spong' hand-cranked coffee grinder, which I reckon might even outlive your Moulinex Matt.
    Best grinder I've used to date; 5 quick turns of the handle and you've got a mug's worth of ground coffee!
    Sorry about the quality of snap though. Just a quick handheld shot by (not much) available light.
  8. so, the sigma 35 has arrived...
  9. I took this outside my back door this week, sun set shinning on frozen trees, looks like Christmas lights or fire.

  16. Merry Christmas & Many Happy Returns! Attached is a picture of one of the many Santa's who keep the spirit alive. Happened on him & his family & friends while running in the park

  20. Usually, when you see small water crafts, they're not decorated with a livery but these were.
  21. I took this with my D300, 24-120 Nikkor and Sb 900 flash. Merry Christmas to all and thank you to all as well. I follow this forum, the Classic Manual Cameras, Modern Film Cameras and the Leica and Rangefinders Forums vigorously. I truly value what I have gleaned from reading the various posts throughout the years. Thanks again!
  22. Merry Christmas, Nikon Forum friends!
    This is the business end of a Kodak Six-20 Improved folding camera, made around 1937. Currently a shelf queen, unfortunately, due to bellows leaks, but it is a pretty thing.
  23. Red Rock Lake Glacier NP

  32. Happy holidays to all!
    Nikon D200, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR (type I) plus D500 diopter lens (I dare not say the producer of this diopter lens, but Nikon does not make one of this power in this size). Since the aperture was wide open the picture has a hazy look. I hope you like it.
    Regards, Miha.
  33. The second picture was made with D300s and a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 macro lens.
  34. The last photo was made with a D300s and a zoneplate. It is a selfie (it took some time to make it (quite) perfect with the picture of the old town as seen from my balcony). The flash reflection made the diffraction rings in my glases. I hope you find the photo interesting (and me not to scarry :).
    Regards and all the best for you all. Miha.

    A few of us managed to take advantage of the Sigma 35mm/f1.4 sale last week, a lens I reviewed back in April:
    Matt Laur asked us to post same samples.
    I captured this image at f2, 1/60, and ISO 400 on the D800E.

    @ f2.8, 1/50 sec, ISO 400 also on the D800E.
  37. First, I would like to thank Matt for making Wednesday's special for snother 52 weeks and I hope this will continue.
    Happy new Year to all Nikon guys!

    Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for the coming new year!
    Snapped this at about 2:00 am this morning (my 'L' bracket arrived this week).
    Matt, I was grinding yesterday with my Moulinex, too. Ours was a wedding gift over 27 years ago. At this time of year it serves double duty as it also grinds hazelnuts for the turkey dressing :)
  45. Downtown Austin
  46. Merry Christmas everyone and I hope everyone has a great New Year.
  47. Mason, at Christmas Dinner
