    Hi Nikon folks. I haven't been back to this particular span of the Civil War-era Monocacy River bridge, but it was a little disconcerting at the time to see an arch stone losing its fight with gravity. Of course, we all lose our fights with gravity - time to go do some pushups! What have you been shooting? Share!
  2. i haven't been shooting for almost 10 days.
    my left foot up to my knee was a swollen blobb.
    i posted this once before, but here is why:
    nikon d3, pk13, micro 55mm 3.5 @f11,sb 910, ettl chord, iso 2000
  3. Bit of spring colour in the garden pond... Water Buttercup and Friend.
  4. Berlin Marathon earlier in the year....
  5. Been hankering for some thing sweet so I baked these pecan sticky buns the other day. And as you can see I made a taste test while they were still nice and warm out of the oven.
  6. Our county historical society hosted a WW II re-enactment at a pioneer village last weekend. This is an in-camera toned B&W version of the German encampment.
  7. I've decided that it's high time Daughter #1 started earning her keep around here. Here she is cleaning baseboards.
    Daughter #2 is still a bit young, but her time will come.
    In all actuality, Daughter #1 was just playing with the dust mop, and I was just playing with the 35-70/f3.3-4.5 AF lens that was attached to an F3 I picked up recently. I find it to be quite a decent little lens, despite some bokeh issues. Not bad at all, when you consider it was basically free.
  8. Always wanted one of these.
  9. Lamp with a starfish.
  10. From a week long trip in the Maldives
  11. Glen Etive
  12. As it is spring, and it seems a week for bugs and flowers, here's a rhododendron about to open up. I've been practicing using that difficult 85/2.8 PC Micro lens on the D3200. It's not the easiest thing to focus hand held, but I like the effect when it works.
  13. There are a lot of honey bees in this area, so off we go chasing them.
  14. Sometimes we don't have to chase the bugs, they come to us. This obliging fellow sat there long enough for me to go fetch the camera. No crop this time, it was taken with the D3200 and a home made macro setup of microscope adapter and Compugraphic typesetting lens, with the camera's built in flash.
  15. A window at the Old Mission Santa Barbara
  16. This weekend marked the opening of the pickerel (walleye) season here on Lake Temiskaming. It appears that he neighbour's granddaughter was trying to use fashion as a lure....
  17. ...however, the less fashionable neighbours appeared to have better luck (shot through branches).

  20. Quick snapshot of my granddaughter at breakfast this morning.
  21. This past weekend was a street art festival that also had a white VW Beetle available for youngsters (mostly) to draw on with erasable markers. Some interesting doodles. D700 with Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5.
  22. From the front
  23. And here's one of the artists.
  24. Great photos today! Spring is in the air and more of America's pastime. Sometimes it can be a little painful
  25. Another hit. In the ribs
  26. It can even hurt catching
  27. First signs of the pretty harsh summer mid-day sunlight here...
  28. 2nd one today: Iris watching a video.
  29. Third for today: My daughter's friend Clara and her 1 yr old daughter Phoebe were over for breakfast.
  30. Steve Murray--love the pix! Beautiful kids--but you probably suspected that---:)
    Also--love the interior of that home. How old is it? Beautiful!
  31. Fashion show in Helsinki. In Finland when high school students graduate, they get a white cap like this.
  32. Another image from the same show.
  33. The above image was shot at ISO 200; the caption has a typo.
    Here's my third image.
  34. Happy Wednesday, everybody!
    Here is a shot of a bulldog puppy from last week.
  35. So many wonderful photos here today I hardly know where to begin. I travelled to faraway Wales last weekend to seek out this delightful steam railway that ran through the Welsh countryside. And it was worth the effort.

    Some water, and a little bit of oil..........
