The hanging heads at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Museum, flash and some PP led to an odd image!

Yes, nice shooting Sinister and Scott! Keep them coming! I'm still closed in with this broken foot, so I look forward to what you guys post here. Maybe in a couple more weeks I will be able to venture out at least a few steps....I hope!

FS....I love that first one, the bokeh makes it print worthy. You post quite a few with that great bokeh, any secret as to how you are getting it that you might share?
The Ultimate Green is neat too....your bike? I'm an old bike rider...chrome and black were always my favorites!

Regards!

I've got a treat to share with you guys later today, so check back!

Shhhh ... do NOT tell anyone this, but maybe it's his secret weapon* ... the Soligor C/D Wide-Auto 20mm f:2.8 ... oops, loose lips sink ships ! Salut, J - the "Soligor 20" groupie

* PS - plus there's a heck of a lot of know-how there, too ...

Yes, Otis probably knows most everything...or thinks he does! He bet me a pound of walnuts that green bike wasn't yours........damn squirrel, he is always right!

I'm a little late on the treat I promised. My 87 year old Mom makes me a Cherry pie from scratch on my birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas...by January I have usually gained 15 pounds!

It is heavenly, I guarantee...try a slice!



Not much shooting today, but I did get this little female Cardinal through the window out about 45-50 feet. This is a heavy crop, an area where that new K3 would come in handy. Still, the K5 does pretty good for my current needs!




Tired of turkey? How about some split pea soup and cornbread? Delicious!



Regards!

Haha ! Clever Otis !

This seems to be a delicious pie ! Don't let Otis approach it !

Nice little Cardinal !

Here in Luxembourg we normally add a smoked ham bone to make it more tasty and we mix the pea soup and add some smoked sausages. Have a "bon appétit" !

I know you guys are getting tired of my "window shots", but humor an old guy that is stuck in here alone all day with not much to do but try to get off a few shots through the window panes and keep my sanity...what's left of it.
(Otis told me to play the sympathy card.....I seldom argue with Otis!)

Not up to the capabilities of my K5+Bigma if I could get outside, but that may be a while more, regrettably.

All heavy crops.









The green is trying to hang on, but it is losing the battle...

Kcupp -Gorgeous shots, wish I was there! Where is that? As winter approaches rapidly here, I could sure find comfort in a place like that!

One more week and I go to the Doc for an exam and X-rays.....hopefully I can start the process of walking again at that time. It will be long and slow, but soon I am hoping to be out of this house and snapping away in the world I have missed the past few months!

Until then, a few more window shots from yesterday...... Reds have always been a problem with my K5, but I think I got these pretty accurate.
K5 + Bigma 50-500
