Delicate approach. It gives details and soft mistery in the depths.
The arrange of the series makes for interesting patterns when look at in the phone (I'm afraid that's how I'm doing it for now)

Lovely images.

Thank you, Armando, Birna, and Anthony.

Fons, thank you for the identification.

Frank, it is not intended as [Theme], but feel free to post your images.

Paco, thank you.  I, too, sometimes feel the vertical screen of a smartphone is suitable for certain images.

FWIW, all images were shot with the lens wide open.  I feel the bokeh of this humble not-so-little 50/1.8G is quite competitive.

The only lens that I have smaller than the 50 1.8 afs is another 50mm, the e series manual focus

A small contribution, Fargesia Murielae, China, I believe.

Very often I would want a pancake lens.  Those thinnest 50mm Nikon lenses are attractive.  In fact, I envy Canon users because they are offered with the truly humble little 40/2.8 STM.

I've used 45/2.8P which was nice but surprisingly turned out to be a little less ghost-resistant than AF-S50/1.8G, even though it had fewer elements/groups.

Robert, thank you for posting.  I haven't seen bamboos in such peculiar this patterns.  They look cool.   8)

I really like my Voigtlander 40/2. It’s a gem that I highly recommend.

Frank,

Those images seem to be Equisetum (often called horsetail), rather than bamboo.

Here is a contribution I captured yesterday.

Absolutely beautiful variety and quality of bamboo Akira. Mongo likes # 2&3 in that order . also fascinated by Frank's variety and subtlety

Jack: are the plants I show unrelated to bamboo?

James, in fact, the very lens has tempted me for quite a long time...

It certainly is!

Thank you, Lars!

Frank, thank you for your contribution.  Although the plant in your images is indeed Equisetum, as Jack pointed out, and not of the bamboo family.  But in Japan, we used to use Equisetum to smoothen the the bamboo-made tea scoop for the Japanese tea ceremony.  So they are related.  :)

Jack, this is a nice "twist" for the bamboos!

Forest and 2 uses!

JJ, thank you for your contribution.  They, expecially the latter two, represent your country really well.  :)

Birna, thank you for your contribution.  Your favorite color gives a nice accent and twist, like the depicted bamboos!

Thanks, Akira. The red print was coincidental.
