    Klaus and Mario:

    Thank you for all your suggestions.

    This will be our 10th trip to Italy, and we still have trouble deciding which areas to visit !

    best regards
    Santo

    Guy,
    dont complain, do it !! To say it the easy way: Its only a few hours away
    And you will love Norcia or Tuscany or.... or..... or......
    The only problem: You will not go home that easy any more. So throw a cent into Fontana di Trevi and for sure, you will return

    And I'm trying to get my wife to agree to move to Italy for a year... she's not convinced...

    For Mario and/or Klaus.... is it possible to get to the top of Mount Mattorone on Lago Maggiore before sunrise? I know there's a cable car from Stresa, and a toll road, but I don't know what time they open.

    For Guy:
    When you do get to Italy, don't forget to sample the local wine.

    many thanks

    Just a lens test... but as per the rules of the G1 Fight Club

    1) Don't talk about G1 Fight Club

    2) All Bottle shots must be empty and out of focus

    well I suppose one out of 3 ain't bad

    For those who care ... Nikkor 50/1.4 on a 510 @ISO 800 (Boy I show my age .. I was going to say 800 ASA) Minor tweaks in Aperture and Define

    Also the ratio of Gin to Tequila does not accurately reflect the rate of consumption... You mileage may vary

    The party never stops.....

    Not as fine a wine or photo as Klaus's Tripidium - which I always thought was an ancient Roman device for holding mosaic makers hands steady

    but still very palatable

    K Dearest,
    I know the Real Reason behind those bottles
    Cam has driven YOU to Drink
    between the Lux & Nocti Purchases....
    Mind You
    What kind of Scot are You?
    Where are the Single Malt Bottles?
    Shameful
    with love & xoxo- H
    D**n Why didn't your Fab Photo get posted with your writing?

    Single malt bottles are sacred totems to the Sons of Sean... the once and future Bond

    They can never be photographed

    well actually we are out of whiskey and the bottles aint as pretty as the Tequila ones

    still awaiting the Lux... might like the Nocti if i didn't hate working with rangefinders or i could find the right gaffer tape to strap it to the Oly

    Belive Leica make such a tape... part Number is STICKY

    but you have to send your lens and camera to Solm to calibrate the stickiness at you chosen f stop

    I'll stick to my Nikkors

    which reminds me ... tomorrow is washday :-)
