    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    My old pal, Pepper. He'll be 15 in about 6 weeks... blind in his left eye, and losing the sight in the right as well. He's almost totally deaf, and his front shoulders are in terrible shape. Sleeps most of the day now, waking to move from one sunny spot to another. He used to be an athletic marvel, able to jump nearly 6 feet in the air to take a treat out of my hand. He was always in motion. Mimi and I had always been big dog people, but we rescued this little toy poodle, when his previous owners decided they simply didn't want two dogs (they had a teacup poodle as well... a yappie little rat) He's been with us 14 years now, but he stole our hearts right from the beginning. He's still very loving, and even playful (in short bursts), and still has reasonable health, but we know he won't last long. We'll miss him a lot, but I'm actually most worried about his little friend there in the background. Spike (a Yorkie) is absolutely devoted to Pepper, rarely leaving his side. How to help him deal with the loss? That will be the biggest issue.

    Go toward the light, old friend. It's ok. We'll be ok... and thank you.

    Aw man that just brought tears to my eyes. The best thing to do is get another as soon as you can so Spike can get past the grieving processes.

    Know what you're feeling we had a Rotty for 14 years and a mutt from Living Free (no kill) in Hemet CA for 13 years. We miss them both to this day.

    Thanks for sharing

    A very moving tribute to a beloved family member, Lloyd!

    About helping his little friend, I have to share some advice a dog owner I know got in a similar situation: let the young dog be present and actually see for himself how his friend passes away, whether it happens at home or at the vetīs! It might sound cruel, but heīll understand exactly what happens, and be able to live it down. If he isnīt there, heīll search and wait for his friend for a long time (as it was for Fredde, our present dog when Felix, his older companion, had to be put away. He searched for almost a year...).

    To get it back to images: this is Snuffan, a 13 yo American cocker that we meet almost daily. A lovely lady who still walks a lot, although sheīs lost more than half her teeth by now. The whole neighbourhood will mourn when her time is up....

    (Itīs a Digilux 2 shot, but I feel itīs appropriate in this context).

    Thank you Don. And thanks for the suggestion. That's one we're considering.

    Thank you Per. I'd never heard or thought of that, but it makes sense.

    Nice shot of a lovely lady. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Rayyan. A love of fine machinery is one of the reason we look in here. If ever you visit England, there's this museum, near Derby, dedicated to the things.

    Lloyd, wonderful pics of your wise companion! Our family dog, Annie, a sheltee, died earlier this year at 16 years of age. She is missed every day, so I am touched by Pepper's image here...

    Lovely pics of close companions above from Per, Lloyd et al...

    Tonight, I had the great privilege of attending the opening of our good friend Matt Driscoll, who shared many of his wonderful images. It was great to see and chatt with you, Matt, and your exhibit was OUTSTANDING! Worth reproducing here digitally as a retrospective, I say....anyways, here are as few shots from tonight! CONGRATS to Matt on the great show!

    Matt, where are you..get over here!! Very well deserved sir. A wonderful photographer, and more importantly an even more wonderful person.

    clap:

    Ashwin: You my friend have done justice here with brilliant images. I think the first one is one of the best. The superb dof control is awesome.

    Thank you both.

    LOL. That certainly portrays the angst of the World Cup.

    Nice Leica bunch in the second shot as well.

    ...Tonight, I had the great privilege of attending the opening of our good friend Matt Driscoll, who shared many of his wonderful images. It was great to see and chatt with you, Matt, and your exhibit was OUTSTANDING! Worth reproducing here digitally as a retrospective, I say....anyways, here are as few shots from tonight! CONGRATS to Matt on the great show!
    Ashwin: Thank you for coming. Fortunately, i'd had my coffee before i checked this forum. I realized after i got home that the diopter had fallen off my M9, so, some of my photos at the opening were a little blurry. I thought it was eye strain. Thanks for documenting it. I can refer my daughter to your post. That way she'll know that i do something besides work.
    Steve/Lloyd: Gentlemen, thank you and thank you for your assistance.
    Rayyan: Thank you and thank you for your inspiring work!

    All: Thanks for your posts. This is a great forum to learn from; and, most civilized too. BTW, I'm not quitting my day job.

    Cheers, Matt

    Ayesha, Could I ask you a personal question: said mrs. Stevenson

    Yes, go ahead. Said Ayesha.

    You won't mind?. No, of course not., said Ayesha.

    Is it true?, asked Mrs. Stevenson. What is true? asked Ayesha.

    That they keep their womenfolk locked in their houses? And let them out rarely?


    Where is your husband? 4000 mts. down, said Ayesha. Above that he comes with me.

    I do love the 24 lux. It was 106 degrees my first day in Vegas, so I spent most of the time indoors shooting wide open or close to wide open.
    Here are three ceiling shots using the 24 lux.
    David: You have a good eye for framing and for organizing the abstract qualities of your subjects.

    Since there's a critter theme going...

    Recently, a Song Sparrow flew into one of my studio's windows and got the wind knocked out of it and I was able to get close enough to get a decent photo of the little bird:

    The sparrow got its breath back shortly after I made that photo and flew off, right as rain again. (M8, 90/2.8 Tele-Elmarit)

    Maggie: That's cool. I am glad the sparrow made it. That 90mm is a lovely lens.

    Different kind of stones. I took my 50mm c-sonnar the last trip. I am starting
    to like this one.

    oh my...i miss a day or two, and there are way too many excellent photos to catch up on...

    Here are a couple from the new 35 'lux:


    Awesome photo Jonathan! Also thanks for all the effort into sharing your photos with the new 35 Lux. Can't believe the far out criticisms you got on LUF in that 35 Lux thread. At least he ended up apologizing for it...
