    It's raining here and nobody has picked up this week's theme, so here it is ... Gear
    Everyone has it or needs it. A couple samples from the archives.

    Very nice examples West. Gloves are cool, nice fishing pole and reel, and mirror image on the camera. Thank's for taking the theme up!
     
  4. Great theme West.

    That's where it all started, the horrors of the slide projector and relatives' bad photography :D

    Nice Nick! I still have my slide projector, but it is not as old as yours. Mine is a cube one, where the slides are in a cube and feed into the machine, of which afterwards you can refill the cube. Haven't used it in 20 years, I bet.

    Paul, you're still sure to have it after 20 years? ;) ;) ;) 

    Somewhere down the dark cellar is one, my father once owned - I hope... :whistle: 

    Kind regards

    I'm a pack rat for some stuff I guess. :)  That does remind me of another idea for a shot. Will do that this weekend. Stay tuned...

    Obligatory New Gear Shot...
    cs-591-0559.
    NIKON D750    50.0 mm f/1.4    50mm    f/3.2    1/50s    ISO 400

    Just got this Kenko set a few weeks ago, along with the 50mm f1.4 used for this shot (I gave my daughter the 50mm f1.8 and D700 I had, as a birthday present). Still learning how to use the extension tubes.

    Multitool, Screwdriver with bits and sockets, canister with earplugs and an eye-wash-flask with an acid/alkali neutralizer. LED flashlight, a nozzle to fit on water hoses, ring spanner 18/19, pipe wrench and a transceiver with man-down function. 3S work shoes, 'hi-vis' acid protective clothes, construction helmet and P3 grade mask. I sometimes feel like a little donkey at work, but some 'challenges' are a long way from the main building where we store (even more!) tools, so being able to start working rather walking back and forth is a plus.

    Is that one of those de-pitting tools for olives? :) 
     
  19. A couple to go with Mike's "de-pitting tool" :LOL: 

    1. A Rabbit corkscrew and foil cutter. Rarely used anymore, but it works very well.
    gear_0000_DxO.
    NIKON D850    ---    100mm    f/5.0    1/100s    ISO 4500


    2. My everyday tools. The 2-prong Ah-So is my weapon of choice, except for synthetic, some composites and Italian corks. Works very well on older corks. The waiter's wine opener is quick and easy.
    gear_0002_DxO.
    NIKON D850    ---    98mm    f/6.3    1/100s    ISO 8000

  20. No, it returns the pit to the olives. :ROFLMAO:
