I was out looking for Native Orchids over the weekend. As we're now in Summer in Australia the variety of native orchids change.

Using a panning action, under bright sunlight, we captured K-36 Class, Durango & Silverton #482 as it drifts, note lack of smoke from the stack, past the Silverton station at about 10-12 mph on it’s way back to Durango, Colorado. We were lucky in capturing the locomotive in a “rods down” position which is considered the optimum for photographing steam powered locomotives.

We have a 38 year tradition of sending out greeting cards with a picture of us on them. The older ones are of people that I no longer recognize!
Here's this years card. If you have a similar tradition I'd love to see what you do.
Shot with the XT1 and the Zeiss 12mm lens. Cropped to get this proportion.

Mysterious island, this - with a massive bulk out of all proportion to the nearby coastline. Add to this the fact that the cormorant in the photo was utterly fearless and didn't budge an inch over the whole five minutes I took on the shot - and you wonder what strange legends still hold sway from ancient times. Wishful thinking, of course, but our local cormorants would have flapped their wings and been off in seconds at such an encroachment. X70 18mm 1/60 @ f/5.6 ISO-640:

I shot one of our local teams Friday during the PA State Championship game in Hershey. Shot with my XPro1 and Rokinon 8mm. I was there to focus on features photos and shoot video. I didn't shoot much action (and none with my XPro) but I did get these frames I thought I'd post here.

A local sculpture garden in my area opened a new exhibition and I was asked to take images of either the artists with their sculptures or people interacting with them.
Personally I hate the pressure of photographing someone else’s art, as you don’t know if you’ve presented it the right way.
Anyway...used my X-H1,16-55.
I actually found the artists to be a friendly bunch!

Our magnificent King Protea!
My daughter and I spent some days in the mountains of Jonkershoek near Cape Town. We were lucky to see one still in bloom, since their season is pretty much over already.

I took this photo in 1957 with a Heiland Pentax 35mm SLR - 50mm lens using Kodak Plus X film,developed by myself. The original photo is very contrasty with almost no detail in the whites and blacks. I photo copied it and edited it.
I always liked this shot.
This boy was the younger brother of someone I knew. He came from a broken family.His mother who he lived with was out of her mind.Very sad situation in the 50's.

In preparation for heading up the next days scheduled passenger run, C-18 Class, narrow gauge, locomotive #315, which was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1895, is seen moving through the Chama New Mexico yard late in the afternoon, heading toward the coal loading area. Owned and operated by an independent group but in conjunction with the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad, this is one of the few locomotives that retains lettering from it's former owner.

Trying out my new XF 16-55mm/f2,8 and am pleased how the shot caught all the details that impressed me on scene- the different hues, the depth extending to the river in the far back and the serene mood. A lasting impression, well preserved.

A common design of housing for the workers. Literally built as the name implies, often less then 300 sq ft for families where six children was quite normal. Leeds still has thousands of these properties, in fact whole areas.

Lion_DSF8339-1.jpg
What to do if you want to see lions from closeup - and you don't have the 100-400 (and the next African wildlife park is half the globe away)? Go to the zoo...
Nikon New Zealand (sic!) invited famous Australian photographer Karen Aslop (who apparently recently became a Nikon ambassador) to give a talk in Christchurch yesterday and lead a photo walk in the local wildlilfe park in the afternoon. It was a great chance to see (and photograph) a few exotic animals as well as give the new Nikon mirrorless cameras a test run.
I've borrowed the Z7 (with the kit lens) and returned it pretty quickly. Not being used to Nikon, I had a slightly bumpy start with it (learning a new system's interface isn't easy in the best of cases). But I decided to use it in what was pretty much standard configuration. Since I didn't have my own memory card for the system (they use some proprietary memory cards), I have no chance to look at the images on the computer (didn't even ask for them), but my interest wasn't really relating to image quality. I was just curious about handling and how it would compare to my trusty X-T2.
As I mentioned, I returned it pretty quickly. It certainly wasn't a revelation in terms of usability. I didn't like the implementation of the focus selector joystick. The Fuji version is superior in my opinion. And the time it took to move the focus point from one side of the screen to the other was frustratingly long. But that might be related to a setting (I assume that you can choose the amount of focus points like with the Fuji, but I didn't dive into the menu to look for the setting). Focusing seemed fast enough, but not noticeably faster than my X-T2 (it actually felt slower, but it's hard to tell). I definitely found the 'focus acquired' feedback from the Nikon less assertive than from my Fuji.
Having a relatively wide angle lens (24 - 70 f4 on a full frame sensor) also isn't particularly useful for photos in a zoo ;-)
So, after a short test that left me (fortunately) with the feeling that I'm happy to not having to look the Nikon way anytime soon, I put my 50-140mm 2.8 on the X-T2 and started exploring the zoo. I haven't had any occasion to use this lens for while and had almost forgotten how impressive the images from it usually turn out.
The image at the top of this post was taken through a fairly narrow mesh fence but the distance of the lion behind the fence and my proximity to the fence meant that I could almost blur it out completely. A big hurray for the power of long lenses with wide apertures for this sort of application. I originally shot this image in black and white with my modifies Acros + R setting, but I like the color version a lot, too…

David and Trudy as they were in the early 1970s. Camera was either a Pentax or Konica, normal (50mm) kit lens. Kodak b&w negative, Tri-X for the second one, not sure about the first…

Whilst walking in Norfolk some months ago, I came across this old abandoned dolls pram in a barn on a scruffy farm near Hunstanton. I thought it would look great in B&W.
