Thank you, Steve.
I pass by this fairly often, and even photographed a bride here once. I always thought it looked so quiet and peaceful. Fact is, it's right about the food court for a mall (the open area behind), and most of the time I'm there, it's ridiculously noisy! But, photography lets us create our own mood, right?
M8, 35 Cron:
We discovered our oldest grandson is absolutely fascinated with gardening. He couldn't get enough of helping Mimi plant, weed, etc. He and his parents returned to New York (where they live in an apartment) on Sunday, and they've already stared a little box garden for him on their balcony.
M8, 90 Cron pre-ASPH:
Wow, lovely shots.
Rayyan, more magic from you as usual. "Primitive Magic?" hahah...great shot. I am appreciating your instincts! Further, I would love to see more of Switzerland. The country is too far and too expensive for my current travel plan, but once I am done paying for all of this Leica glass, I may be able to free up more for travel
Osman, lovely image and powerful accompanying words to enhance the already powerful image.
Matt, lovely capture at Pikes Place? you are become the Pike's Place Maestro, my friend. It's a great place to "be" and to "see" in Seattle to appreciate the Pac NW, and you frame it well.
Lloyd, lovely captures with the 90 'cron pre-asph. I used to own the lens, many years back and love its rendering, but not its bulk. Your images show the best qualities of the lens, and are great moments in life and in growing up. Lovely.
Venice. That is more expensive than Switzerland.
Guys, thank you all very much.
I appreciate, and look forward to, your comments, Rayyan. Always.Lloyd: Wonderful. What can be more wonderful than this moment Lloyd? Honestly? Mimi and you must justly be proud.
Tender capture. Lovely.
Yes, family is most important, and the moments each family has are priceless. I prize images like these above any I've ever taken.
Lloyd, Ashwin; thanks a zillion.
Lloyd, your shot of your grandson with Mimi is decidedly a heart warmer.
Rayyan, with the aid of your excellent photos, I started to feel warmth to a place which at first I had found a little on the cooler side. But that was years ago...

Many thanks for the nice comments on my bend in the road
Son, Lloyd, Steve, Ray (and especially the nice comment about the book), Ashwin, Matt.
Truth to be told, no fiddling, no IR, just an electronic red filter.
Ray . . . I'm always partial to a good bottom . . the back cover of the latest LFI magazine being a case in point
Matt - Like others, the last of the band shots (NO Stops tow away zone) is fab.
Osman - the shoe shine guy is really splendid
Ray - I'm amazed that Switzerland is your favorite destination, lovely though it is. The orange restaurant is gorgeous though.
Lloyd - Mimi looks so young to be a grandmother (terrifying)
Bart - your White hood shot has a kind of tension I've never seen in Holland - excellent. . . . . and as you liked it
This is where I work when I'm at home . . . Emma does framing downstairs, and I fiddle about upstairs:

Just this guy you know
Here is a little shot from our bedroom window (just above the bath)

Just this guy you know
are here with us on the forum.
Switzerland we visit. England I consider a second home, so does not count. Studied up in Shakespeare country..Warwick..then lived in Malmesbury, Wilts..anything more beautiful than that?
If that's where you work Jono, you are not only lucky..I now know the
secret to your photos!! Beautiful capture of the house.
Switzerland...the way we saw it..
...the way saw it....

The colours of my generation are black and white.
Some randoms from my trip in Wellington. All with M8u/Noct f1
Boymerang, lovely series...looks Noctilicious! The portrait of the woman is my favorite
Rayyan, I wish I saw it your way as well. I am glad I can through these images. Lovely!!!
Jaap, nice capture....I like the contrast, but am I seeing some dust....maybe my monitor, as I just sneezed....like the darkness in the sky...red filter (0.92 is red spectrum, I believe, or maybe orange)?
Jono, that shot of the house/cottage is pure idyllic magic!
Bart, whew, the tension in that shot...Another decisive moment, so to speak!
Osman, it's a privilege to share with you and everyone here. Thanks for all of the comments!
and the hits just keep coming...
Maggie: Thank you! Missed you first time through.
Honey. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt
