    Hallo Michiel,
    Dank je wel! During my journey in Indonesia, I met a wonderful Dutch family and took a little language lesson. Once again, thanks so much for your kind comments. Leica 77.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you Leica77.
    I have been been in Indonesia as a quest teacher at Bandung in 1984. Beautifull country.
    You are fast student, you write Dutch fluently

    All the best, Michiel

    Hallo Michiel,
    Great to hear that you taught at Bandung back in the 1980s! Here is one more image from the forest. "Taking a Nap". GF1 + 20mm. Best, Leica 77.

    Just wanted to say I really enjoyed your shots of the monkeys. The bokeh created with the 20mm lens is really pleasant.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    to Leica77 : lovely monkeys, did you give them a print of their portret
    to Michiel : very beautiful iris, mine are just starting to open, but I cleaned the pond a little too intensively last autumn
    to seakayaker : you seem to have an inspiring collection of lenses. Very nice pics !

    and now :

    Rafael's FLAD #11, G1 with Zoom-Nikkor 28-45/4.5




    This is a quite rare lens, I've never seen any for sale on Ebay or else.
    If you're interested in it, you can read more here :

    Hey, Dan - you seem to be keeping up with the LADs and the FLADs, even though you have not officially declared yourself

    This composition is unusual (leaf down the middle), but I like it a lot.

    Keith

    . . . . . perhaps, a FAD . . . . .

    if I was to try a LAD or a FLAD, I would be making a quick entrance and exit due to the limited # of lens that I have . . . . .


    The shot is unusual and perhaps should have named it 'breaking all the rules' but I do so like the yellow irises in the background!

    . . . . . and I am having fun . . . . .

    Coral Poppies

    GF1 with Leica - Ernst Leitz Wetzlar - Hector 135mm f/4.5 -- ISO 100 -- f/4.5 -- 1/320 -- 135mm

    . . . . . to get a bit exotic (at least for me) I dropped by a small camera shop where just about everything is used (95%) and picked up this 1960 era lens. Walked home in the rain and took some shots close to the house.

    I like the bokeh . . . . .

    Life is Grand!

    Hi Lisa,
    It's a beautiful bokehgraph. The Micro-Nikkor 55mm lens (both f2.8 and f3.5 versions) is certainly one of my most favorite lenses. The sharpness and bokeh are both extraordinary as shown in your post. Best, Leica 77.

    LAD Project Day #12

    Have this lens for some time but never gave it a serious try.
    I like the weird bokeh, although it makes me a little dizzy.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Lovely subject and composition, Michiel
    Dan, that old Leica lens works so well in your poppy pictures - and poppy is my favorite flower. There is a field near my home in England that is flaming red in spring when the poppies are in bloom

    Wow, this period of the thread is advancing so fast, I can barely keep up with it


    But, what a collection of lenses we are seeing, and some great photography. I am learning a lot, but I fear I'm also spending a lot.

    Isn't it great that m4/3 has encouraged photographers to start using these older lenses again, and to dig up new ones?

    Thanks to everyone.

    We eventually have some flowers in Canada - so here is a picture taken with the CZ 25/1.4 cctv lens, taken at full aperture.

    Keith

    45mm macro, wide open, close to 1:1. Mirrored and colour hue altered. What is it? A chive flower.

    Same subject as the last image, I'm afraid.

    But this is taken with the new Oly m4/3 9-18 zoom

    1/50s, f5.6, ISO100,18mm

    So far, I'm very happy with the way this lens is performing.

    I Love both shots, but the one shot with the CZ 25/1.4 cctv lens is my favorite of the two.

    Larry this is a beautiful shot!

    Sharp as a tack, the flower with the small spider web and the colors are very very nice!

    The Bokeh thread is florishing

    LAD Project Day #13
    G1 + Seimar 135/2.8

    Got this lens yesterday and it is a 10 blade preset lens in Exakta mount with a good bokeh, I think. Not very well known and therefore not expensive

    Two photograph's today, sorry , because I like the first one but it does not give any info on the lens, therefore a second one.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi !

    Thanks for your comments, everybody !
    And congrats to all participants in this bokeh topic, for your beautiful and interesting pictures.

    Exceptionally, I have to post early my next contribution, because I'm taking exams tomorrow (pray for me, if you don't mind ) and I won't have time to post.

    And, it is a very symbolic post & picture. Let me explain ...

    Today, I had to travel to Flanders, for the funeral of an uncle of mine.
    He was a 2nd World War Veteran.
    Along the road, I came across these poppies bordering a field and made the link with the 2 big wars that took place in Flanders.
    And remembered the first words of the beautiful poem by lieutenant-colonel John McCrae that I reproduce hereunder.


    In Flanders fields (lieutenant-colonel John McCrae, 1872-1918)

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row

    That mark our place; and in the sky

    The larks, still bravely singing, fly

    Scarce heard amid the guns below.


    We are the dead. Short days ago

    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
    Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.


    Take up our quarrel with the foe:

    To you from failing hands we throw

    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.



    So, I just had to take this picture.

    Here's to you, uncle Hilaire !

    Raf:

    Canadians are proud of John McCrae, and most Brits and Canadians can recite the first line of that poem. The poppy is so important as a symbol of what happened in those dreadful times, which should not be forgotten.

    Good luck in the exam - a prayer from me would not help much

    Rafael, yes, we should not forget our liberators.

    I am often aware of those wars when we drive through Flanders to Normandy. There are so many signs and remembrances of it.
    Beautifull poem and poppies and succes with your exams.

    All the best, Michiel

    Thanks for sharing the photo and the poem. Appropriate here in the US as we enter Memorial Day weekend.

    Thanks to all that served.

    Thanks to the student who made this piece on glass, I just had to pass by and notice the bokeh in the background through the glass.

    Liked your flowers with the CZ 25/1.4 cctv lens. Works wonderful.
    It is almost summer and still no flowers in Canada?

    Very little time today but I managed to take this shot at an opening of an exhibition.
