    Hello Nikon people, and a good Wednesday to all. You know when you've been using the same kitchen knife for, oh, about 25 years ... and you finally have to admit it's time for it to go to Knife Valhalla? Our old serrated bread knife was doing more mashing than slicing. Since we like crustier breads, it was time for something a little more specialized. We opted for a multi-serrated design from Wüsthof, since it looked perfect for micro-tearing its way into a baguette or other multi-texture loaf without squashing things. Yup, it works! It's also, as it turns out, completely terrifying. That knife is just plain scary. We've named it El Diablo, and have worked out elaborate safety protocols whenever it's being carried into a room with more than one person. But man, it can slice some bread!

    So, done some cutting edge photography? Share!
  2. Backhoe
  3. Three cutting edges, to be exact. Replaced my Zwilling 8" Chef Knife a couple of months back with a Shun Classic East/West Chef's Knife Set. The third knife in the image is a 5 1/2" Santoku - my first Japanese knife - already a few years in service.
  4. First time I was close enough to notice eagle's claws and how big & sharp they are. In case anyone is interested, that's also a halibut (what's left of it).
  5. Royal wedding in Stockholm on Saturday. Lots of horses, soldiers and streets packed with spectators.
  6. I wasn't quite able to pick a spot without distractions; the flagpoles proved out something of a challenge later on.
  7. And finally the happy couple Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist in a horse carriage after the ceremony.
  8. Ilkka, love the last one. You always get something special from the 200mm.
    My shots, all with a D700 + 24-120/4 (uncropped images):
  9. The knapped flints in this old castle wall are quite sharp!
  10. From the edge of the local golf course
  11. Sorting through a box of old kitchen implements, I found these knives.
  12. Taken from river's "edge" last Sunday morning, during a trail ride on the Chippewa River in Wisconsin.
  13. Pine tree, Terrace Park in Sioux Falls SD. Nikon F3/T, Nikon 28mm f2 AiS, HP5.
    Kent in SD
  14. My third trip to this spot - and my last at sunset. If the midsummer setting sun can't get to that split rock - it'll have to be an autumn dawn.
  15. Here are some more flowers from me this week. Don't you just love spring! Nikon Df w/ Voigtlander 180mm macro.
  16. Hi dear friends and thanks for sharing your beautiful photos...Nikon D700 & Nikon 24-70 f/2.8
  17. Irises are blooming here.
    Buddha and Yellow Irises
  18. Wet Blue Irises. This colour really shows a high degree of variation when viewed on different monitors.
  19. Broadway Bridge in Portland, OR

    Having trouble, as usual. refusing to allow me to post 'duplicate posts'?
  24. [​IMG]Taken at an open-air amphitheater in Candiac QC. It was quite dark, I cranked up the ISO and hoped for the best since this rider was quite unexpected. I think I attempted to pan but I am not quite sure.
  25. [​IMG]A retiring Anglican Bishop in Montreal, Quebec who is pensive and perhaps in prayer before speaking to a group at a church breakfast. Barry Clarke is his name. For what it is worth, this was a candid shot.
  26. Summer evening strolling around.... nothing edgy, but a way to digest whatever that knife helped make for dinner....
  27. had to take a shot of the Stephen Curry mural in Oakland after the Warriors won the NBA title...
  28. We've had some pretty strong storms hit our area in Ohio the past few days.
    Mother nature is not very particular about how she cuts through 125 year old giant oak trees. That tree was over 100ft.
    About a week or so ago my wife and I were walking past this tree and I commented to her "I would not want to be under that tree when it comes down". Glad I wasn't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  29. [​IMG]This one taken about an hour ago. It is a pot of flowers on a patio at my son's place (Candiac QC).
    The red in the background is a big ice tub for drinks.
  30. Sharp? Yeah, just rebuilt and re-tuned my large band saw.
