    Hello Nikon people, and a good Wednesday to all. Working my way through some archived shoots for a marketing project, and recalled this chilly winter day sitting down at dog-level in the Pennsylvania snow. Feel free to indulge in a Time Travel Tuesday, or share something fresh! Looking forward to this week's goodies from everyone - share!
  2. In recognition of Time Travel Tuesday, a flash back to 1980 and the whimsy of youth... (and a really lousy slide scanner)

    Here are three from my 7 week road-trip back in September. Almost 8,000 miles through 20 states, from Northern Ontario to Southern California.

  12. Time Travel Tuesday (or Wednesday) works for me. This is from 1982.
  13. Under the Lamar Street bridge in Austin, Texas.
  14. David, it looks like you were having a fine time in 1980.
  15. Some bird photos from my bedroom.
  16. Sunrise on Lake Michigan
  17. Bad feather day.
  18. From among the early images with my first digital camera, a Kodak DC240 (1.3MP)

  20. Glad to go to the archives for the week, I dig into old CD's. These are relatively low res scans of print film done at a local lab. From about 2010 we have a Nikon F, 105 lens, and 400 speed film, at a concert.
  21. Continuing the archives, the Nikon F goes heron hunting, with a 400/5.6 lens and some sort of 400 speed print film. I don't now recall whether I also had the 1.4 TC on this at the time.
  22. Snowy owls don't usually come this far south in the winter, but we got a few one year, and this one conveniently perched on a power line one moonlit afternoon. Once again, it's the mighty F, and probably the 400/5.6, on some unrecorded Fuji 400 film.
  23. Hey, it WAS still Time Travel Tuesday as I composed the opening post! Now it's Wayback Wednesday - not that we're picky :)
  24. I can do time and travel - here, everyone will be pleased to know, is the last of my holiday snaps from last summer. Although since I'll be back in Yellowstone next week, I can't promise there won't be some samey photos in the future.
    My "elements" theme for Yellowstone reached "water", the last of the four. Here's Sapphire Pool, blowing a smoke ring.
  25. Lower Yellowstone Falls with a rainbow (the timing for which I entirely credit our guide).
  26. This is the Nature Center at Asbury Woods, Erie, Pennsylvania back in 2011.
    I thought the flowers growing on the roof was pretty neat.
  27. I'm glad that I shot this old barn back in 2011 because it was demolished last year.
  28. A more recent shot from the fall of 2016.
  29. And finally, with apologies to the eyeballs of anyone looking at this on a fairly saturated monitor, it's not Yellowstone without Grand Prismatic.
    Great shots, as always, everyone.
  30. Not yet 4 years old, granddaughter Iris doesn't know how to spell words yet, but she does know how to design a figure using letters of the alphabet using refrigerator magnet letters, proving the creative imagination is alive and well in children.
  31. For Time Travel Tuesday, I can go back to the 60's. Here's my friend Bill, relaxing with a cig, 1969. We were roommates in college, 19 years old. I had my first Nikon: Ftn with the 50mm 1.4 lens. I usually shot tri-x so I could develop negs and print my own prints, but I took a class in photography and had to shoot slides for the assignment: a portrait of someone.
  32. I have a lot of stuff from the late 60's, early 70's. Here's a series of shots I took while flirting with this pretty girl at a 4th of July party, 1970. We were outside in the early evening. I remember having Plus-X in the camera (iso 125) and it was getting dark out so I was shooting at 1/15 sec, hand held wide open at f 1.4. The resulting images are kind of soft and glowing, which I really like.
  33. Here are some from "way" back in 2005. Taken with a CoolPix 7900, my first purpose-bought little digital (my film camera at the time was my trusty Pentax K1000).
  34. Another
  35. And a final
  36. Andrew, if you are headed our direction for a winter visit to Yellowstone, be sure to bring warm clothes. We are having a big winter in the Mountain West. Best wishes for safe and fun travel.
  37. Great retro shots today.
    Was in the land of the "Greatest Snow on Earth" for two weeks. Unfortunately I was fighting a severe case of bronchitis so on the way home I forced myself to take these at the Bonneville Salt Flats. I am so glad I don't have to shovel rain in Cali.

  38. one more
  39. A couple scanned or copied from slides. The first is from a hike to Mt Katahdin in Maine and the second is the "Old Man Of The Mountain" in New Hampshire a couple of years before it fell down in 2003.
  40. Number 2
  41. Way back machine
    to 1980
  42. Afternoons are finally getting more light as the darkest part of winter is over. Downtown Helsinki on Saturday.
  43. Iguanas
  44. @Tom: thanks bringing back the memories. Did that hike (alone) in Summer of 1993; on the Knife's Edge on all fours at times (not the least because of the rather strong wind ;-)).
  45. Urban waterfall
  46. The photographer
