We'll figure out the rest when I hatch out a plan...
Nice pictures and great captions!

Lenses / Re: Speedy Manual Focusing?

I miss the AE-1 split prism every time I try to focus manually.

+1000
I really miss it. Oh! The other day I loaded film into my AE-1 and shot a few pictures. The funny thing is that I have got so used to seeing the image on the LCD screen, that after every image I took on the AE-1, I turned the camera and ended looking at the backplane! LOL! And that is where I keep the tab of the film roll paper box that identifies the ISO and the number of shots. It was hilarious.

This is such a great little vacation lens! And, according to FoCal, the second sharpest lens in my bag ahead of some L glass and my 50mm macro...

Here are some Jeepneys waiting at the ferry landing in Sabang... They always make me smile - like a Pixar film - I can just imagine them talking... ;D

Nice colors ... I like it  :)
Yes, fabulous!

Fantastic! Well done!

Central Washington this past Saturday night, was looking to shoot the Northern Lights...ended up with this creepy cabin:

Pretty nice consolation prize - that's a cool image!

I think so too!  The forecast was very un-optimistic, I almost didn't drive out there.  Really glad I did!
My 2c - it's a lovely picture. Not a consolation prize. :)

Canon General / Re: Why do you do Photography?

Why do you breathe.
Absolutely!

And because it is there (to be photographed)
PS: George Mallory copied my thoughts in advance (even before I was born...)

BR RS7. I will never go back to neck straps. Come to think of it, I used the neck strap as a shoulder strap several times before getting the BR.

Eggs in a frame
1Dx and 50 f/1.4

ISO 100 f/4 @1/40
Lucky for me you posted after I had breakfast. Otherwise I might have eaten my iPad.
 ;)

I was doing a quick product shoot for this restaurant for their new Brunch menu, brought a lighting setup and all my reflectors etc. Turns out the light was PERFECT for about an hour and I did not need any additional light, other then a diffuser right above the food about 24". We shot 5 items in the same light over and over with perfect results every time.
Well, it looked perfect! Compliments to you. Also to the chef for making it just right :)

Agreed about hogs.  They are the number one most destructive non-native animal species out there.  What's number two you ask?  Burmese Pythons?  NOPE!  Feral cats.

All three species pale in comparison to H. sapiens sapiens.

You are so right!

Gary! Great to have you back!

Darn! I should have wished for a million dollars... ;)


Yes, perhaps a missed opportunity, Nah, you would only waste it on more Camera gear.
True! But a million dollars worth!

I am really good at missing these kind of million dollar opportunities... ;D

Well, A million dollars - or - Gary
hmm...
I vote Gary!

BTW, the same holds for a whole load of you guys on CR :)
