In the dreary surroundings that lie between Newark Airport and Elizabeth, New Jersey there is a crop of airport hotels and this long-standing Anheuser-Busch building. On the days they are brewing, the aroma downwind is quite a pleasant change from the norm.
Hoping that they are uploading frequently. And yep, for sure - the odors in NJ could be worse than the Budweiser factory!

Nice shot of the iconic building.

Day 10 - Very cool shot, like that I can see the portion of the moon in shade.
Day 11 - Nice tight shot of the waterfall. I think you have a perfect shutter speed showing the flow but keeping detail.
Day 12 - Nice image of a industrial site..BW just seems to work with these type of images.

12 - good use of the B&W for the industrial, nice play on the words for the title.

This has felt like a long stint away from home, and it's good to be back. In my absence, my new 40 was delivered. Also while away I bought an old lens that I have always thought would be interesting. Looking forward to trying them both. Not sure if I'll be able to wait until November...
 
Congratulations on the new lens (and the new old lens, too!). What I've been doing during this time is shooting whatever it is I'm going to offer for this project, using one of the three lenses I chose and specified, and then after that I am free to pick up any of my other lenses (usually a macro or the 100-400mm) and do a little shooting with them as well.....best of both worlds!

Wow! f/2! Can't wait to see what you might do with this, Andy!

Will you get drunk by smelling?
Maybe!

Actually, probably not, because the fermentation only happens after the brewed mash is filtered and placed in containers. Still, an entertaining thought.
That waterfall photo is sheer perfection. It's simply outstanding. And hey...I've seen that AB building many times!
I was thinking of your image when I photographed it!

I had planned to switch from the Helios to the new 40 when the latter arrived (and become “player”). Now, I’m considering continuing “hardcore” with a single lens like the last two years. Tough call…

New toys! Always a happy occasion. Both are interesting and I like the way you have captured them with your Helios. I'd have been tempted to convert to mono but then colour works well.
