    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:

  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.

  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.
    00dIdg-556841884.JPG
     
  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).

  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.

  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.
