digital (but I did have my M6 with me )
M8, 50 'cron
Steve, you're putting up some excellent stuff on these recent w/nw -- a pleasure to see them. No kidding.
Nels, is that Miami Beach?
James, that flawed M8 is obviously just incapable of taking a photograph. We can meet in D.C. and you can just hand it over to me for appropriate disposal in keeping with applicable environmental regs.
A very good photo actually.

James, yes. 35th St. pier, also shot with my Leica D2 in this shot within minutes of the shot above. Those were the crazy days when I carried two cameras with me at the same time. These days I couldn't be bothered.
Indeed, James. Another fine shot from you. Hope to see more from your M8.
Had to post something new...
Your pix are not opening while the others do. Are they jpegs?
Nevermind, now they are open. That was odd.
Thanks, Michael and Nels. The M8 is a lot of fun to shoot with. I prefer it for black and white right now. But my right thumb keeps looking for a frame advance lever...
That's a beaut, that arm. I even like the grain. Just curious: which dslr gives high ISO grain like that?
Nice topic for a thread too.
Jack Lo ... I think our cats must be distantly related. ;-)
Thanks for all the nice comments guys (and the ones in my Rain thread below). It's much appreciated. The pic above was taken with a 5D, straight conversion with no special processing applied. ISO was either 1600 or 3200 - it's an arm on the war memorial in Lewes taken in "available darkness" (it was something like 1/40th wide open).
Sorry to posts so many, I just like this topic..

It's the universal "I alone am the centre of the universe" look that some cats give you. & these felines must be related to boot-- your pic instantly brought this one to mind.
Cannot resist putting in my sweetheart Goofy, first at three months, second at thirteen months. M3, Canon FTb, both Canon normal lenses at f/1.8.
Why did the blessed thing show up as a link?
Mukul -- A photo from your hard drive will appear in the thread if: 1. It's no wider than 511 pixels, and 2. You type something in the caption blank (anything at all -- just cannot leave it blank). Or you can link a photo, either from a photo.net gallery or another site, by typing: 1. 2. Then select "HTML" from the drop-down menu before you hit "Submit" 3. This will show you a preview of your photo (no preview = no good) 4. Assuming the preview is ok, you "Confirm." Linked photos can be wider than 511 (see some of the ones above) but should still be reasonable in dimensions and overall file size should be approx 100 kb max.
Thanks, Michael. The first photo was less than 511 wide, but I left the caption space blank. The second was, I think, around 540 wide.
Try to get it right this time.
