    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    To My Politically Correct Friends:

    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee(s).


    To the rest of you... And you're ALL my Friends, for which I am very grateful:

    Merry Christmas (ok, Happy Holidays too) and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

    Holiday fishing:

    Those really are nice, Corlan. I think each version stands on its own. I like the crop of the color, and I love the composition of the b/w. Nice work.

    Thanks Steve, Lloyd. Much appreciated.
    It was two different shots and angles, a few minutes apart. They both give a different perspective, and cal for a different treatment i guess.

    The guy was courageous enough to stay there in the cold, but left the very second the last drop of sun stopped reaching him. Courageous, but wise.

    Steve, splendid photos as usual.
    Don't you know though that this lens is considered as unfair competition and therefore banned from posting?



    Great guitar player btw, Blues with a strong touch of funk. Actually got one of his CD on the shelves since a couple of years, from CD Baby (a super source for good, non mainstream music and artitsts).

    Corlan...Im locking up the 200vr in the safe & never bringing it out again!
    Im shocked you've heard of him! He gave a free concert this past summer at this gorgeous old castle just north of Boston! He's a nice guy also!

    The season being auspicious for tales, here's a couple from yesterday, roadside:


    Apparently, for now the old, wise stone and the brand new, indifferent hydrant do not have a lot in common. Maybe, in time...

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Christmas is kind of over, so I went to an outdoor rock concert last night, to hear the legendary Thai rock band Carabao. Their handyman is slightly legendary as well, and carries all his Buddha amulets around his neck, and the tools, lots of them, in his belt. Here he is, in the middle of the action, trying to make things work.

    My Mother is from Boston, and a lifelong, diehard Red Sox fan. It's a legacy she passed on to the family. Here's my nephew, who found a lump in the toe of his stocking Christmas morning. He figured it was coal (which wouldn't have surprised us! ), but discovered his wife had found a treasure... a piece of the wall (legally obtained) from Fenway Park.

    Wow. That's amazing, Osman. I remember seeing rugs like that in Greece. I think there were called Flokati. Is that right?

    A priceless treasure indeed.
    Incidentally i just ran through the Leica M thread, sorry for what happened... fortunately it seems that she should recover swiftly. My best wishes.

    On a lighter note, when reading your unfolding story i confess thinking at some point: "what's with the running thing in this family?"

    Interesting technique... good thing about it, you can safely leave the car keys on...



    Jorgen, this whole series is wonderful, simply put it's like we've been there.
    On the technical side, the 85 seems to render a bit more saturated colors than the Tamron, at least under these conditions.
    Btw i was wondering what kind of metering you were using here to avoid specular highlights and even get rich colors instead. I rarely do this kind of shots so it's just a feeling, but it seems particularly good on your series.
