    Matt: really nice series. I like them all but my favorite is the last closeup of the guitar. Great B&W tones.

    Thanks Tim. He's a star in a bird show at a local zoo. Reminded me of Patton as well.

    Great old church, and a terrific shot, Corlan... especially if that's before final processing!

    Great shots Steve.

    (BTW, it was fun to show these to my wife. She was analyzing Joanie's stride, and being yet again amazed by what great shape she's in... still.)

    Thanks Lloyd. Well you know, the usual: a bit of perspective work**, couple of darn birds, the garbage can.. a bit of curves, pop and sharpening for print.



    ** despite the quite goob job of the ol' AIS PC, an excellent lens with an awesome build quality.
    (when using that type of lens, can't help thinking that's too bad we're well in the plastic age).

    Inside "baseball" shots, of no merit other than perhaps to show the 70-200 VRII for "action".

    The GF is the runner but she and others commented that Joanie has a rather odd stride....I will have to re-look at her Olympic run but I think that is the way she ran when she was young. (For the "wife" Joanie's 5k time 17:45:20, win time 13:48:43 and win female 16:14:62...FWIW)

    Well since it's a slow day, I will try and help your wife's stride analysis....Perhaps I can justify the post, not as photo art but as an homage to Muybridge.

    Great series Steve. Joanie always was known from her rather odd technique. But who can complain about the results?!? Sort of like people criticizing Michael Johnson's technique. I remember him suggesting that since he held the world record, perhaps it was everyone else that might want to consider running like him!

    Great time for Joanie. My wife's best 5K time last year was 18:10 (Actually, it was her only stand-alone 5K last year, the others were in triathlons), and she's "about" Joanie's age (I'm sworn to secrecy on the exact number. ). I only wish I could run that fast at my age!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way, Corlan. While there are some pretty solid Nikon lenses, the comparison to the Leica lenses is pretty dramatic, in most cases.

    Or the Zeiss, for that matter. Then, all of the better build, AIS, Leica, Zeiss are stricyly MF... or, ironically, one has to go for (limited) 645 gear.

    (but i guess that's also why except for the 105VR all the lenses i kept are not-the-plastic-kind)

    Nice addition to your previous, still ongoing series. Everytihing seems ready for the 4th over there.

    Sounds like you'll end up with several "Public Market" books material: "Around the Market" "Inside the Market" "Everyday life at the Market" "Music at the Market" "People and characters" and so on. Seriously

    On this specific set -all nice, i like the accordion shot a lot, and the dynamic expressions on the next. What were they singing this time? Not Comfortably Numb, probably
    edit: oh i missed the green plane. Nice catch... is it one from Steve's private fleet?
    Corlan: Thank you. Yep. Tomorrow starting around 6:00 pm it will get real busy in my neighborhood with people parking to walk down to the park for the fireworks. The accordion shot was liked by the camera too. It needed no additional processing other then conversion. I hate to say it, but i don't remember what they were singing. I'll let you know when the books are published.

    Corlan: Excellent images. I'm not familiar with the PC 28mm. I have the 24mm PC-E, but, I've never really used it seriously. The converging verticals in the church seem to have been resolved quite well. Just a touch left to make it seem more natural (I read somewhere about that). Like the moon shot and the barn.

    Some more from the other day's outing. I'm going to have to ask her next time where she learned to play the saw. Not in the high school band, I'm sure. I just looked in Wikipedia: it's played in Northern Europe, also! Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

    Corlan: Very nice pair of shots. Both buildings are interesting and testify to the longevity of the original design and craftsmanship of the builders. I am fascinated by round shapes in old buildings. Very clever hand work on display, all done before CAD! Very nice.

    Matt: Nice series on the musicians. The saw-lady is feeling it! I heard a saw player a couple weeks ago—very interesting sound but a little goes a long way.

    Thanks Lloyd, Matt, Tim, Steve, for your kind words.



    Tim, for sure they knew how to build them sturdy at the time, pretty much with bare hands, a couple of tools and astute brains. Another round one then, couple of hundred miles from there... got targetted and hammered pretty badly over history, but somehow still standing.

    Matt, cool singer set: in the first shots it's like you're getting us to know her, and in the final one she eventually notice us, through you camera, and reveals her kind, smiling inner self to us. Well, something along these lines... Very nice.


    Re the saw afaik it's played pretty much all over the world, in various forms. Marlene Dietrich was a reputable saw player (probably one of the very first lady)... we can surely wish our friend here the same success -or even a fraction


    Oh btw, i'll probably need a 24 PC-E (or the 45) at some point, will need the tilt feature. Unfortunately no metal built alternatives (except for the Hartblei maybe, but these are kinda hard to get)... If someday you're thinking about lightening you -last? - bag... drop me a line, who knows?

    Steve: Thank you! I'll have to find out if it's a hardware store saw, or one especially made for playing. There are Swedish and French Saw makers that are apparently tops. Specially tuned teeth, etc.

    Corlan: Nice medieval tower. I wonder how much of that damage is from last century's wars? Although, if you put a machine gun in there, it would have been blown to bits. Maybe too obvious for last century's wars. I like the PP. The sky has an attractive grain.

    Lloyd, haven't you heard? One does not take good fireworks photos hand held. It's impossible, impolite and makes your fellow photographers feel inferior

    Great shots

    I was planning to buy a D700, but something went wrong, so I bought a nice, second hand D300 instead. Tried it out last week. Nice camera

    Lloyd, very nice set. Cool fireworks (hanheld ), so are the cops/firemen (?), the lady reading... all of them. Then of course, the shot with Mimi and lil' pumpkin do steal the show... simply, way beyond priceless.

    Let's say that in addition to 'historical' damages, plus the last WW bombings (roofs...), various guns and methods were used by troops leaving the area about 65 years ago with the intention of leaving very little monuments standing. Hopefully they were in a hurry and did not succeed everywhere (and many buildings proved way sturdier than expected). I've started to document that aspect last year then found it too depressing -hearing all the local stories, too.
