Night activity ... more snow needs to be cleared off the driveway :)

I did this hand-held with the 400/4.5 Nikkor Z on my Zf at 1/20 sec or so. He was moving fast thus sharpness isn't perfect. Oh well. That is a bourgeois concept any way.

My daughter at her graduation ceremony. Earbuds for protecting herself from the noise (goddam disc jockey).
Zf, 40/2 SE at f/3.2.

Very convenient lens, and sharp enough so cropping won't hurt.

Hm. Thomas + Paco. Nice couple of photographers :)

Hopefully any rain has ceased before my arrival later this month.

It's nice to see Thomas in good shape and big smile of Paco!

A nicely round rendition for the portrait of a person you can be proud of.  The earbuds (earplugs) are essential in loud environments.  I would never leave home without them to visit rock concerts.  In emergency circumstances, a piece of tissue does the job admirably.

Lovely vehicle.  IMO the prettiest automobile ever built.
I am envious!  ;)

Ian, Dogman, thanks


Also a restored Corvette 1972, automatic, convertible, also drove it around the block , not quite the same experience, felt like driving an old pickup truck
