Around twenty years ago I bought some used Nikon/Nikkor equipment from a buddy not far away from Oslo. Including the price he said that for free I could get a Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI (8023XX) with a damage on the filter ring (impossible to attach a 52mm filter, he said). I took the lens and made it possible to use it with 52mm filters. The picture you see is taken today with that lens, Df on tripod, aperture 8 with a Nikon pola filter. In my opinion a really great performer!
One picture taken is far better than none!

I have stated this before, but bears repeating: the 105/2.5 is synergetic to the Df. A perfect match. As it were the designers had envisioned the future camera ....

I agrée, the 105mm f/2.5 is a gem  ;) (even in B&W)

Absolutely... a perfect moment captured!  Her hair reminds me of my wife's hair which has similar appearance and length.

Buddy, you are a (photographic) genius, but of course you know that. Kristina's hair looks like being alive and your daughter is climbing her like a koala climbs a tree ...
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Not typical but not unheard of, either.  Some people have the ability to grow their hair that long with proper care.  Straight hair of that length, if reasonably fine and smooth in texture, can exhibit waves traveling down its length when the head is suddenly flipped.  This is quite a beautiful and graceful sight.  These waves are not visible in this particular photo.

Buddy, love the image.  I've been working on a collection of Goa Football (Soccer) images for the Goa Football Federation and they want VIVID.  The Df and the 105 2.5 lenses is such a great comb.
Jacques, that is well shot but what a find, love it  :) .   Years ago you could find all kinds of old stuff on buildings if you looked on the sides or back walls.     So would anyone enforce the  the notice or was the image above it someone long ago thumbing their nose?  :)
