    Hello loyal Nikonistas (and you Canon people that stop by - it's OK, we will never tell). I was reminded again today why the camera bag is always with me in the truck. Even if it's a smaller rig, with the petite D3200. Because I like me some dog photographs, and out in the world is where the dogs are.

    This fine German specimen was using her owner's SUV sunroof to keep an eye out for her return from the post office, across the parking lot. I'm going to guess that the driver feels no particular need to lock the car when she dashes in to drop off packages. Photographed any car alarm systems? Share!

  17. Good morning to all. Some excellent shots this morning.
    Our alarm system Lexie, checking out her new "old" oak hardwood floor since I removed the wall to wall carpeting. Well worth all the work she says.

  19. That's quite the car alarm Matt! lol Lex, thanks for posting the instructions about "How to attach multiple photos in a single post." Very helpful. :)
    I bought a Nikon V1 right before Christmas when B&H had them on sale, along with a F1 adapter. I've been experimenting with the V1 and my Sigma 150mm macro lens and am really liking this combo. My photo this week is of a teeny tiny crab spider on my Mexican milkweed. (V1/Sigma 150mm/F1 adpater@1/1800, f/5.6, ISO 400)

  21. I like John's waterfall. Nicely serene. :)
    Here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we have several places named after the Wright brothers. As far as I know, they never visited. Last weekend though, I came across at least the second sculpture in town of their Wright flyer...

  38. I haven't had much time for photography this week other than a few shots of our dachshund puppy. He's not much of a car alarm yet, but he's definitely a good alarm clock. he likes to wake us up at about 4 a.m. everyday.

  43. That time of year again. First post here, I've been admiring the work in this thread for a quite awhile. This is from the spring before last.

  44. Good Wednesday Morning to you all. Lovely work here today as always--my favorites are John's eye (a masterful shot) and Apurva's Tourist #3. I don't have anything new and lovely this week, so here's a shot from the archives; I hope you enjoy it.

  50. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    It's too cold (for me) to go out and try to juggle a camera, 2 retractable dog leads and the inevitable bag of dog doo while wearing mittens; so, my 'models' allowed me to photograph them in the warmth of the sun room.
    Here's Harry.

  55. Happy Wednesday everybody. We had some winter weather around here so I decided to make some portraits of drainpipes. They all smiled and were very cooperative.

  59. Sorry late to the thread this time - - vertigo mixed with severe headaches has been a not too fun combination. So I've been a bit out of it. MRI was unremarkably normal so it's most probably just keep doing my exercises to restore my equilibrium....
    So again I'm testing lenses on the D800 & this time it's the 70-200 VR I since it's the original version the concern is - will it be soft in the corners..... Should it be replaced - - Here's the result from some horse & dog play in the arena at home :)

  60. So what's your take, Lil, on the 70-200/2.8 v1 in practical use on the D800 - good for your style of shooting? Hard to tell at 700px, but those are pretty likeable from where I'm sitting.

    Nice week of photos, everyone!
     
  61. Thanks Matt -

    in between the 80-200 & the 70-200VR I'll go with the 70-200VR - - I don't see any problem with softness in the corners. I used it on the D700 as well for my daughter's head shots. Didn't have a problem there either - - so I'm keeping the 70-200VR even though I must admit it's probably one of my least used lenses.
    The 80-200 is listed at one of those places - - I certainly don't need both & its time to unload a few not used lenses. So there it is ;)

    Seem the 70-200 VR likes my D800 so the 80-200 will have to help pay for the D800 ;)
    Great sets of shots in this thread everyone :) Oh and for whatever reason I can still not reply in Firefox. Had to go to Chrome to reply yet again...
     
  62. Dave W - your first pic reminds me of an alligator for some reason.
    Lil - I sure hope you can kick all your health problems. It must be really frustrating to have to deal with those issues before you can go out and enjoy your photography. I've seen people amazed when there are Rotties entered in a herding trial. A Rottie is a really good all purpose breed: guardian, companion, herder, couch dog, etc.
    I've been shooting with my C330f and T400CN film the last week so I don't have anything recent. I do have cows and dogs though. All are shot with D300 and 17-55 f/2.8 at 55 mm ISO 800 1/250 sec at f/8

  63. It really bites when the IT Admin's own laptop freezes<g>
    00bKH2-518559584.jpg
     
  64. In my laptop's defense: it started life as XP Pro, was upgraded to Vista Pro, and is now W7 Pro.
    It started life with a 250 HB HDD, was upgraded tp 500 GB, then 750 GB, and now has a 750 GB hybrid Seagate.
    I plan on picking up a Microsoft Surface Pro this Saturday.

  65. For what it's worth, at our farm ear tags are left ear for Ladies, right ear for (rams) steers. 2 and 4 were from our first breeding at our farm. We started with 4 heifers and are now up to close to 40 head of 100% grass fed Black Angus. Theres a bunch(?) of sheep running around now. For both meat (again, 100% grass fed) and wool. We've made our own soap using fat from the steers. We've spun yarn from our own sheering. One year, for grins, we mixed shed dog undercoat with wool. That made for a really warm knit hat.
     
  66. Mark - - - most people don't know how old the Rottweiler breed is, but it's an old breed. They were used by the Roman legions well over 2000 years ago to herd the vast herds of cattle to feed all the soldiers. So when it comes to herding - Rottweilers have done it for a long time. And people forget that that's their primary job - to be a working dog. Too many people used the herding & especially protecting skills of a Rottweiler for the wrong reason. She's really a goof & a sweetheart - - but we've yet to find out what would happen if anyone broke in into our home. But she's a bit of a social butterfly ;) Smart, highly intelligent & they observe & draw conclusions. Very smart dogs.
    Oh & I shold say the vertigo is getting better - I can walk more of a straight line now :D
