    You're right Rayyan, the ZF 35 is much less "intimi-dating" () than their larger counterparts.

    Beautiful, beautiful portraits.
    I really dig the frist one, in b&w. Such a sharp, witted expression you captured there...

    Are we talking 'bout the Groverman himself here?

    How the hell did you get this close with your 24??

    is what a photo should do.

    As to cleaning your trunk...I hope it was not some outsider!! If they did u a favor, u owe them thanks. Maybe a dinner with candles and your country
    wine.
    Thanks a lot my friends for your thoughts.
    I'm experimenting here to find the right mood for the area -i"ll definitely go monochrome. The first one's maybe more "lively" and that's why i tried, but i think the three of you are right. I'll submit the second version , with maybe a bit more pop. We'll see what the next shoot will yield, esp lightwise )

    Thanks again.

    Well i made several mistakes (what a shame for someone who has all the worthy LP from the mid 70's ). First i thought it was the old' 28 1.4 even when writing "24". Not yet accustomed to this new lens existence i guess. Did not look like the faithful Keilwerth either -but who knows on stage? Then of course it would have been from the analog days... even though he left us when we were still in the last century, it's like he was around a couple of years ago. Time goes by way too fast.

    Anyways, i still love your photo... and dig the Grover man.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Someone has asked me why I seem to photograph elder ladies? Is it because my ' entourage ' runs away the younger ones?

    Of course, that is not correct. I travel alone, always. Except on a mountain climb, for obvious reasons.

    I generally prefer the experience of age. But not always.

    The vitality, challenge, passion and the inherent curiosity of a young age always entices me....




    It is like a breath of fresh air. Refreshing. Yes Sir. A breath of fresh mountain air.

    Nice catch, Matt. Reminds me of a manufacturer who used to ship his gear directly in wooden boxes, no cardboard, and was saying that in time with several shippings each one will end up unique with the stickers and patina, and looking "well-travelled". He was right, although i never seen one as weel-stickered as this guitar case...

    As Lloyd said, another set from you which is definitely Nat Geo material.
    The one with the elder women and the blue canvas cover is extraordinary.

    Steve, brilliant series all the way... and by all meanings.
    Love the intricate textures and DOF, and of course the PP. With the very first photo posted ("Grover"), my fav is probably the last one. Though technically speaking #2 quoted just below is a plain tour de force.

    2.


    What was the lighting??

    The one with the elder women and the blue canvas cover is extraordinary.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    I had seen it before.

    Another time, in Another country.

    Everybody had it associated with something or the other.

    But here?

    I approached carefully.

    Would you like a ride sir?

    To where?

    Sugar.

    Is that a name?

    Yes. It is a Bar. We take you there. For free.

    Why? Anyway I don't drink.

    Well you can order water for you and a drink for your companion.

    I looked around. I was alone.

    What companion? Besides why can't I drink here with the companion? It seems big enough.

    The company is better there.

    How about giving me a free ride, I am going half way there...

    I´m just in for a short break in the mountain holidays. A lot of great images has accumulated in here lately! Really!

    This little mountain flower is so small that really pleasing images as such are almost undoable with all the grass covering and protecting (a flower´s life is hard up there ). Anyway; when you´re lucky enough to spot one or more it means the temp is definitely over 10 degrees C, my wife has taught me. Below that, it just covers up, becomes almost invisible and waits for better days.

    Of course, that is not correct. I travel alone, always. Except on a mountain climb, for obvious reasons.

    I generally prefer the experience of age. But not always.

    The vitality, challenge, passion and the inherent curiosity of a young age always entices me....

    It is like a breath of fresh air. Refreshing. Yes Sir. A breath of fresh mountain air.
    Beautiful portraits of beautiful subjects. Very much like a breath of fresh air!

    LOL. Nice shot, good story. Sugars must be an interesting place... and is Sugar also a Mary Kay distributor? (Mary Kay, Alice, Jane, etc.etc.)

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks Lloyd, and I will. Actually it´s been quite pleasant - hoping for more the last week. This guy´s happy up there as long it doesn´t rain - and the sheep aren´t too scary!
