    Great story Bobby. You did the right thing and that means good karma for you. I'd love to hear how the little guy is doing in a few weeks. Nice photo too!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone. RobCar - I spoke with in 2 and 4 briefly after taking the picture. The guy in No. 5 wasn't too pleased as you can see so I just thanked him and ran.

    Nice set Jonathan. Looks like it was a lot of fun.

    Citifield Area

    The NY Mets recently built a stadium that stands directly across a small street from a maze of ramshackle auto repair shops and scrapyards that has been there forever. The streets are more like rutted paths than actual roads, filled with broken auto glass and debris, that flood at the first drop...

    [EXPIRED] Nikon 300/2.8 AFS-I (non VR)

    I am reviving this thread because the lens is still available. Price is lowered to $2650. Amazing lens looking for a good home!

    Beautiful set. Did you have credentials or are these from the stands? If from the stands, did you have any trouble getting the 300 into the stadium?

    I saw the exhibition this weekend. It is absolutely wonderful. Well worth making the effort to see it if at all possible.

    Coney Island Mermaid Parade, Pt. 1

    I saw him too. I waited until after he had his shot and then took this one but I guess I was still one of the crowd he was complaining about: His photos are beautiful and unique but I question his complaints. He chose to set up on the busiest corner - Surf and 21st - where everyone is...

    Coney Island Mermaid Parade, Pt. 1

    Thanks. You did well Chris, some really nice picsunder challenging conditions. For future reference, I find it's best to arrive around 11 and shoot the staging area for an hour or so and then stake out a spot on the boardwalk. It's a trade off. As the number of folks who buy bracelets seems to...

    Coney Island Mermaid Parade, Pt. 1

    The floats start around 22nd or 23rd street. The motorized ones end where the parade turns to go up on the boardwalk, around 10th I believe. If you hoot from Surf Ave, you see them. If you go on the boardwalk, you have the better backgrounds (Cyclone, Wonder Wheel, etc) but no motorized floats...

    Sorry for the incomplete post above. I've been having trouble accessing the Cafe and posting or editing. My ipad seems to be the only device able to get here, but I still get error messages. Anyway, closer to the start of the route the crowds were thinner and it was easier to shoot from the...

    Hey Chris. Sorry I missed you and sorry you were disappointed. It's definitely a challenge - both logistically and with lighting - but gets easier once you've done it a few times. I hope you don't mind if I post some of mine - those of us who go usually share a common thread. The staging area...

    [EXPIRED] Nikon 300/2.8 AFS-I (non VR)

    This is an excellent copy of the 300/2.8 AFS, super sharp, fast and silent focusing with incredible bokeh. The glass is excellent with no scratches, haze or marks. The body is also in excellent shape, free of scuffs. There are some signs of wear on the front gasket where the hood attaches which...

    What an amazing trip! Your images are beautiful. I have wanted to visit Iceland for a long time but just haven't made it there yet. You've given me a new perspective on how to really see it. Thank you.

    Ear buds?

    +1. I picked these up after reading stellar reviews on I've been using them everyday for 2 years. Great bang for the buck and the cables are replaceable - a very nice feature at this price point.

    My Leica experience

    Hello. My name is Larry and I'm a Leicaholic. Frits's experience inspired me as well. I sold off most of my Nikon gear and put together a 4 lens kit around the M(240). So far I'm very happy with it and I do NOT miss the weight. I'm still trying to get the hang of the rangefinder but like the...

    Nikon Lenses On Olympus Mirrorless Camera????

    Ouch that's sharp Vince! I use the Voigtlander Nikon F to m43 adapter - pretty well made, no wobbles. Be sure to check the for sale sections here and on other forums. You may be able to save quite a bit. 75-150e 35/1.4 AIS

    Nikon Lenses On Olympus Mirrorless Camera????

    The advice above is correct. I have been using Nikon manual focus lenses on the E-M5 and like the results. There are many adapters that will do the job. For G lenses, the only one I am aware of is the Novoflex, which comes with an aperture control ring that these lenses lack...

    Great stuff Glenn! I really enjoyed our outing. You made that E-M/75 1.8 combo sing. These are well worth braving the cold and the crowds for. I'm still waiting for my computer to unfreeze so I can PP some more images. In the mean time, I'm counting down the days until the new iMac arrives...

    Great set Fred. You must have had wonderful seats to get these low angles. The first one should be printed and framed. Harvey is about the only thing keeping us Mets fans going this year.

    OMD EM5 Price drop?

    You should be able to find a very gently used one for under $700 on FM or m-43 Buy/Sell forums. I've always been happy with used gear and less depreciation as technology changes.
