    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here:http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km. This forum's moderators are currently allowing up to three images per week, so share some work!​
    Hello Nikonistas, and especially to you New Englanders, if you're dug out enough to sit down and spend some time in front of the computer.

    We didn't get the storm, but we had a serious drop in temps as that front blew through. And there's only one thing to do when it's cold in February: find a sunny spot inside and sleep until March. At least, that's what our older dog thinks. Honestly, that leather chair is supposed to be completely off limits to the dogs ... but we just don't have the heart to deny him. Feels good on his older bones - and the sun hits it perfectly in the afternoon. Got a secret sunny spot to warm up this winter weather? Share a photo!

  2. Like I've said before..I take my camera everywhere. I was working in the Perry County Ohio Auditor's office several weeks ago. I had my D300 with 17-55 f/2.8 with me. Here are some of the folks that take care of the residents of Perry County, Ohio.
    My D300 with battery grip and the 17 - 55 f/2.8 with hood are not exactly svelt. As long as I have the strength to carry them....I will.

  17. I recently was involved in a fund raising project to help a pet rescue organisation. Now shooting models is fine. Shooting models and dogs together is a whole different ballgame. Thought I'd post an outtake showing what happens when things go to the dogs.

  21. I like your fort gun, Apurva, but it isn't 500 years old! I think folks were using wheellocks that far back!

  51. Apurva,
    That gun dates from about 1900 and they were used in the 1st World War. German (Krupp) I believe. The erstwhile fort may be that old, but the gun is certainly not. I apologize for being a nerd!
     
  52. Good Morning Everyone, Lotsa good shots today: Aguinaldo's drops are high on my list, as are Apurva's rusty gun and Rick's bird romance series. Jens' landscape, however, has an ethereal, haunting beauty which I love. I've got to resort to my shop again; it's hard to get off the Rancho.

  53. Lots of wonderful pictures today.
    Thanks Chris Speakear and Young James for mentioning my pic.
