These days, one can google it, as I did. I donít know if that would be considered gentlemanly, though.

Nice one. To me better, more as it is in monochrome.

Thank you. I may be losing the ability to work in colour anymore; my almost immediate decision with every image is a conversion to black/white. Colour seems to try to dominate things rather than contribute to their overall idea. Perhaps that's partly why I find the majority of landscape work of little interest; by far the greater number of landscape photographers I enjoy are dedicated to black/white. Their work seems to have a life of its own: think Kenna and even St Ansel, bless him, as martyred as he has become.

There I go, making more new friends.

As they have bought a new lock and chain, perhaps the old disco that lives up the steps behind the doors may be going to have a new life this summer. Not that I have any intentions of finding out, of course.

Of course...

Good contrast* between color and non-color. Clean simplicity that works well.

Rob,
Why is it that whenever I try to photograph something through a raindrop-decorated window, and my camera's autofocus insists on focusing on just the raindrops instead of the "subject" outside, the result is junk.
But when you do it, you get magic!

It's the camera, don't you know?

Don't know about magic, but the lens used is an old 2/35mm Nikkor manual, hand-held. It's got something I like - a velvety quality the original 2.8/35mm I used for years didn't, but it was more crisp, in my experience, than is the f2 version. Fortunately, I don't do much of crisp anymore.

The tech. was simple: focused on the drops and waited, between sips at the coffee, for something brightish to come into sight. The road is at a corner where folks insist on parking on the yellow lines that should get them a fine, but I suppose they hope the cops stay in their den during bad weather. The result, of course, is that you really do have to slow right down to get round without making contact with anything, so brakes come on. Raising the camera back to the eye and concentrating on getting it held so the pre-focused drops are back where intended means trusting the pentaprism screen, which as the lens is always wide open until exposure, is easy enough.

Love my Nikons; always have. Owe 'em a lot!

How wonderful it would be to catch one of those olde worlde Impalas with the cat's eyes rear, horizontal(ish) fins. Americana is made for photography!

Thanks for the spiritual uplift: went for a blood test this a.m. in preparation for the preliminary cataract removal checks; 8a.m.is one helluva time to have to be fully awake and out there in the world for that little date with Dracula's sisters!

Old lenses never die; they just fade away.

This one's giving you great results, Rob.

Truth to tell, I just think that for people of my generation, once we learn how to use our original tools, we stick with them if only because it saves us having to overcome fresh difficulties.

As with Keith, eyes are the weak link as I grow longer in the tooth - no, I'll resist that one - and are perhaps the driver to af for general usage.

It suddenly struck me that most of the kids on LuLa are too young to remember five star general Douglas MacArthur's going away speech to the U.S. Congress after he was fired by Truman for believing that if you're in a war you ought to fight. He quoted an old song that used to be sung at West Point: "Old soldiers never die; they just fade away." And he followed the words of the song, saying, "And like the old soldier in the song, I'll now just fade away." It was very touching. I was twenty-one and had just joined the Air Force when he gave that speech. I was on my way to Korea.

Just to prove it doesn't always rain in northern Mallorca, a recent one I forgot all about.

Actually, unless I process right away, I forget about all of them. As with the darkroom, digital too comes in two parts: the buzz when you imagine you're seeing something, and then the confirmation (or often otherwise) of that initial reaction. Either way, only the working on the thing later on etches it in memory.

I really don't know much about the ones that got away.
