Well Rob abd Keith,

I guess given that Leica has just bought out Sinar, I am kind of a Leica user again, too.

LOL,

Once or twice, but the steady diet of them we have had hasn't helped my digestion.

Can't say my digestion was much pleased on Friday, either. Turned up at one of my regular places expecting a ten-Euro lunch, only to realise that the menu was up to fifteen: Spanish Constitution Day. National (and local) holidays always drive restaurant food prices up by 50%.

Not willing to write off the diesel I'd used getting there, I went in and had what was, in fact, a delightful meal, far better than the usual offerings. But, before breaking bread - or anything else - I shot my dining companion sitting on the table. I wasn't sitting on the table of course - she was.

As remarked elsewhere, there are some things that cellphones don't always do all that well. These conditions find them fighting from the mat. But anyway, here it is.

Your paramour is still a classy model, Rob, and well worth the extra five Euros. Keep on treating her well.

Not so sure about this, thought I'd let it sit in Rob's thread.

On her behalf, thank you, Eric.

Personally, I think she's starting to look a bit glassy-eyed and brittle, but maybe that's just because she feels a bit miffed about posing for a cellphone! would you believe! Whatever indignity next!

She did remind me about the folly of trading away my two 500 Series 'blads, saying that only a dealer benefits from a trade, and that had I had the sense to retain even one (500, not dealer), we could really have got down and dirty together, shooting from gutter-level and making the most striking 'street' images of all time. Now she tells me; where was she when I needed her advice, friggin' decades ago? Probably being handed round from hand to hand, just like in the song about Silver Dollars.

Femmes Fatales!

Anyway, whilst the computer still works, I've taken the liberty of shooting another nude - this time, in festive mode.
I suppose I felt I owed it to Christoph, having cheated him with the other 'photographers' shot.

Why not wish you all a Merry Christmas, whilst I'm at it?

Okay - Merry Christmas!

Rob, just find a green coke bottle and you'll have a winner!

Slobodan, I fought a mighty fight to remove the green. It's the Christmas spirit: envy must be removed from my life for a month. That's not really difficult - there are few I honestly envy and am jealous of none. Okay, I do still envy the cat that I once was, but that's spiritually dangerous and might lead to retouched selfies if not ruthlessly nipped in the bud.

Anyway, you can have your fill of green in the restaurant shot.

Very elegant, Rob.
And Weston never had his peppers and nudes in the same photo, to my knowledge.

Eric, in his day, even in NM, it would have been considered too risqué; in Mallorca it all flies, if only because most of the folks are zonked out: either asleep, looking at their bank books and shaking their heads, or just plain stoned. The remainder, like myself, wanders around by itself, speaking to nobody in particular and dreaming dreams of coming lottery wins. It's la crisis.

Miss Coke thanks you for thinking her nakedness elegant; a lesser mortal would simply have lusted.

You're sitting in a fine cuisine restaurant - well, given the prices you suspect it's supposed to be fine dining, and someone leaves the door to the kitchen open and you have a peer inside, later giving into regret at having eaten there...I just liked the sign right next to the kitchen door: Consumer Advisory.

Getting bleary-eyed led me to thinking about how the bottle might see it.
