    Excellent! That R-D1s really suits you. It seems the new lenses are really working for you. It didn't take you long to get that machine humming!

    Helen,

    A nice idea of for a thread and some very strong images to kick it off with.

    Tim,

    Also very nice.

    Here is one from an art fair last Sunday which I hope qualifies. It is called Lambermontmarte in Antwerp and is hosted in a square called Lambertmont plaats and hence the name is a play on the more famous Paris quarter. It was taken with an M8 and 35/2 ASPH.

    Great shots folks , really love some of the images in here. Helen way to go that RD-1 is really becoming a part of you. That is what camera's should do is free your mind to shoot

    Re: Street Celebrations & Demonstrations

    Thank You Guy.....The Rd1 is the Best
    and I have surprised myself with realizing
    what my 'FAVORITE' focal length is
    Since shooting with the grd over the last 6 months
    I naturally thought 28 would be my fav prime
    BUT NO
    its a 90 (Love my elmar)

    and will probably be SEDUCED by Charle's 85mm Summarex

    At present I would love to own
    Super Angulon 21 mm
    85 Summarex
    Noctilux (BIG SIGH)

    Best to you

    Re: Street Celebrations & Demonstrations

    Helen - if you have the 90 Elmar you don't need the Summarex.
    Do you have a 50mm?

    Charles, Yours is Dreamier
    as for a 50
    I have a 50 mm Elmar 3.4
    WANT a faster beast
    so I am intrigued by the Canon
    50mm 1.4 & the Canon 50.mm 0.95 /creamy, & beautiful contrast
    perhaps my next lens

    Re: Street Celebrations & Demonstrations

    Just to keep things going.... from the Mermaid Parade at Coney Island this past June 21. D300 18-200 VR in strong, contrasty light.

    One of the very few times I asked people if I could photograph them. In this case I needed to since they were initially facing in the wrong direction.

    Helen, if you are looking at the older fast LTM Canons and would like an 85 don't neglect the canon 85/1.5 II. I've had one since my IIIG days and like it's smooth boken the light way it draws.

    I'm still looking for the 50/1.2.

    Here's a thread and samples of the Canon 85/1.5.

    Very nice that Canon. I like the results you linked to even better then the Summarex. Very smooth and painterly.

    I Love him....so true Demonstration & Celebration in one go

    Same age group as your man and always draped with American Flags
    be it all over his body: on his clothes ,sunglasses, hat, waving them
    and always with a Happy go Lucky Smile

    It was held at noon and the bright sun taxed the D3 and me.

    There was some event at Columbus Circle in NY and the NYPD were making cotton candy. Gotta love it and it looks like they were enjoying their assignment.

    You are right, Helen, it was the most relaxed and cosy demonstration I ever saw.
    Not sure what it was all about. My french isn't that good.
    Looked like a demand for Sunshine - and a White Christmas ... NOW !

    Re: Street Celebrations & Demonstrations

    Here's a photo I took in March of 2005 during the start of the Alaska Iditarod Sled Dog race in downtown Anchorage. These kids had found the perfect vantage point (about 10 feet above the ground on top of a large trailer). They must have been there for awhile, because a few of them seemed a little bored.

    Taken with my first DSLR.....a Canon D60 and one of my favorite Canon lenses...the 85 f1.8. I often think the D60 was one of my favorite cameras. Gave it to my niece when she expressed an interest in moving beyond a digital P&S, but I don't think she's gotten much use out of it yet.

    Hi Helen,

    I have been on holidays so missed some of this stuff. your Little Italy shot really caught a moment. I remember being bored out of my mind at many events as a youngster. everything seemed to go on forver.

    Hi Gero,

    A very nice series. I like the shooting perspective. What lens are you using for most of these shots please?
