    I agree! This has to be one of your best in the post-armageddon series. The mind spins at sight of that chair. Nice!

    BTW, a couple of things we learned about ballooning. First off, addressing Matt's question about parachutes: I wondered that myself. Turns out that even if the balloon experienced a traumatic (total) loss of hot air (which is virtually impossible), the "terminal velocity" of the falling balloon and basket (even with a full load of passengers) is 1200 feet/minute (20 feet per second). Military parachutes are made for a descent of 1500 feet per minute. So if it falls, bend your knees at landing and you walk away. Even a partially inflated balloon actually descends quite slowly.

    The pilot told us that they occasionally take sky divers up to jump, and it differs from jumping from an airplane in that there is almost no ground speed so the jumper experiences a sensation of falling, which is absent when jumping from a plane. (Same with BASE jumping). He said they've actually had experienced ski divers go up, but then decline to jump out, saying that the lack of noise and wind, etc. so unnerved them they couldn't jump.

    Also, Corlan, the way the pilot controls direction is by moving up and down. The winds are seldom constant in one direction, and move in different directions at different levels above the ground. Before we started, he released a small helium-filled balloon, and watched how it reacted to the wind. It actually started out moving to the south, but then when it got higher, shifted and moved quickly north. He explained that he's learned over 30 years of flying balloons to make the changes required to allow him to go generally where he wants. Not an exact science, but pretty impressive.

    One last thing. I often experience some vertigo on a bridge or on a high cliff. I've had issues with that in the Grand Canyon, and in Canyonlands, for instance. Ironically, I really never had that feeling at all in the balloon. It was very smooth, felt very safe and comfortable. It is very calm in the balloon. Since you are moving at the same speed as the wind, you feel no wind yourself.
    Lloyd: Thanks for the additional explanation. I overlooked the built-in parachute factor. Pretty interesting.

    Cheers, Matt.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Want a room, I said.

    What sort of room, sir?

    Big bed and action. I replied.

    We don't have the action sir. We only provide the opportunity!

    There is a confessional not far away too, sir.

    Sir, hesitant whisper. We close at 2100 hrs.

    What the action? I asked.

    No, the pool sir. I guess the action would start after that sir!

    Damn right you are, young man. You take care of me, I take care of you.

    Of course sir. Just call me.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Lloyd: thanks for the education on balloons. Quite interesting... we do learn a lot around here, not only about photogrpahy


    Matto: another scary place Nice photos as usual. The Chair, yes, though i kinda find the side to side beds on the unsettling side (meaning, for the beholder's mind...). Good job.


    Mikoo: looking good... there's one shot there i don't quite understand or maybe i need to go :sleep006:, too.


    Matt: not too keen on Starbucks, but i like your shots there. The passing couple under the rain (?) is a nce touch, and the b&w is clean.
    (right, rain? In Seattle? )


    Rayyan: great rendition of the grand hotel atmosphere. Feels real.
    Is it the same place with the gardens (y'know, where you met the model)?

    Corlan, thanks.

    This one is the Hyatt in Nepal about a year and a half ago.

    The ' model ' hotel was in Bali a couple of months ago. We are in touch by email!! She liked the photos. But I am not that keen on travel nowadays.
    And neither am I keen on emails!

    I have had enough of travel and hotels. Even a flight of 6 hrs seems daunting
    for me.

    Ayesha is in India now. Actually landed today. She shall scout the place for
    a longer holiday for us. It is India or China ( PRC ) this sep/oct. Then we call it quits. The only other places left are too far and too much travel.
    Chile, Antartica and the like.

    I might go for 2 wks to Sri Lanka. Maybe meet up with another ' model'. 3 hours flying..that's doable and worth a few trips!!

    Take care pal.

    Rayyan/Steve: Gentlemen, thanks.

    The folks staring in was just luck. They were probably trying to figure out if this was the first Starbuck's. It isn't. Nor, is the one down in the Market that people believe is the first one. Always, somebody posing in front of it to prove to their friends in Cleveland/Japan/China/?? that they were there!

    This is the first Starbuck's on the corner of the 4-story building. Since demolished, so the one that came later on the block at the right side of the photo became the "first" one. Mythological, isn't it? By the way, the headquarters for world caffeine domination is located South of downtown (SODO, of course!) in an old Sears Roebuck store,

    Nikkormat; 50mm f/1.4; Plus-X Pan; 1975


    (Nikon, not digital, unless the scan counts)

    Steve: Thanks! I was riding my bike around then. My first SLR, also, was a Nikkormat. Before that, I'd had Agfamatics, etc. I bought a very nice Nikkormat FT2 and a 50mm f/1.4 lens, the other day. It's sitting on my mantle. I haven't shot any film in a while. I should load it up this weekend.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, good historic record. Seems dull and desolate though.

    These are lovely. I love boats. Fishing boats in particular. You have caught the color and the repair/paint needed. Very Good.

    The ' model ' hotel was in Bali a couple of months ago. We are in touch by email!! She liked the photos. But I am not that keen on travel nowadays.
    And neither am I keen on emails!

    I have had enough of travel and hotels. Even a flight of 6 hrs seems daunting
    for me.

    Ayesha is in India now. Actually landed today. She shall scout the place for
    a longer holiday for us. It is India or China ( PRC ) this sep/oct. Then we call it quits. The only other places left are too far and too much travel.
    Chile, Antartica and the like.

    I might go for 2 wks to Sri Lanka. Maybe meet up with another ' model'. 3 hours flying..that's doable and worth a few trips!!

    Take care pal.
    Oops, my mistake. Obviously it was not Bali, posted too fast.

    Few years back i myself put the suitcases, miles cards of all sorts etc. in storage. Mix of circumstances and losing the apetite i guess... decided to focus on simpler stuff. Nostalgia still kicks in from time to time.
    India, Sri Lanka sound like great destinations and all the more with your ability to stay off the beaten tracks. Surely you'll have a blast, and who knows will let you want for more after all... hopefully, since we want to see more of the world through your eyes.

    Tell Ayesha to stay safe on her scouting mission.

    Steeeeeve... what the sax, man!
    For all the technical impresiveness in the color shot, i might go for the beautifully perfect sax in the bush.

    What's your impressions on the new 1.4 compared to the 2.0 version. The new one seems even better, ain't it? Keep'em coming, please!

    (thought i'd never lust for a 35mm again (not my FL), but here we are again... )

    Matt, i'm happy you decided to post here one of my very favorites of yours.
    While not much is perfect per se in there, it has the rare ability as a whole to take you for a stroll down memory lane -whether you know the place or not.
    A unique atmosphere... there's sadness, nostalgia, solitude, but still hope.
    What pops up in my mind when trying to express the mood is "tranquil desolation". Or something like that.

    A rare photo.

    Gary, if i'm not mistaken this train above is one of your regular subjects. I like the wider perspective here. So, how do you like this lens?

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Been involved in a bunch of property maintenance stuff. One project is replacing the field stones in the chimney of the barn. The original build wasn't that great and the mortar was rotting away. After dismantling the rotted part, the rebuild has begun. None of these are art, just a record of some of the fun stuff I'm allowed to play with in pre-retirement.

    Best,
    Tim

    Thanks Very Much Corlan! First off, the lends is Big,Solid & Heavy! Bigger than the 100 Makro Planar. I find no faults with the 35 F2 but this Monsta is Sharp wide open! Have to give it some more field work to place judgement on it but there's No Doubt it's A Serious Piece Of Glass! Thanks again C!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Matt: I like the stealth shots (Starbucks and the tour group). And I especially like the old shot of the original Starbucks. Memories!

    Mikoo: Very nice shots from Kyoto. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for the Anime set up shots. Surprisingly simple for such great results.

    Rayyan: Your color work never ceases to amaze me. The blue of that pool is just, well, amazing. Hope the action wasn't too taxing. And I hope Ayesha's scouting trip yields the makings of a memorable trip for you both... and even more, that you'll share your journey with your photography.

    Steve: Never enough indeed!! And what amazing shots. BTW, I think I'd be taking Rayyan up on that offer. Also, congrats on the new lens. You're obviously up to the challenge of taming that monster! Great portrait too. B/W is perfect.

    Matt: Nice shots of the fleet. Love the rust... lots of texture on those hulls.

    Gary: Stellar train shot. Loving what you're doing with the D2x, and I'm starting to be a believe in that lens as well.

    Tim: Nice shots of the project, although that looks like entirely too much work to me.

    Yup. Serious piece of glass for sure!
    And what a splendid portrait, Steve. Wonderful!

    Question on the side: are the eyes dodged a tad in PP here? or did you have this surreal perfect light worked out?
    ( makes me think of some of Mr Blumenfeld's works -which is quite the compliment )
