Jody, that sunset is absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks. I almost missed it - from ground level things just looked cloudy. I was driving by the firehouse on the way home from work and noticed that the tower was sunlit, so took the gamble of driving to the hill across the river from town and wound up catching this shot.

I'm glad I did.

It's been ages since I posted anything from an M lens. I think that now I've got a couple of DA limiteds I've gotten lazy with the manual focus lenses.

I went for a quick walk with the 85mm f/2 today. I really love the rendering from this lens. The first one was wide open, the others at f/2.8 I think.

Great series John.

The M85/2 is one of the few lenses from that series I never owned.

I had the M 100/2.8, which was an excellent portrait lens, and I never never pulled the trigger.

I'd be interested to know more about the firefighter's helmet and branch (nozzle) - is it a memorial of some sort?

Many thanks. I also have the M 100/2.8 but it rarely gets any use because the 85mm is so good.

It's a small firefighter monument outside a firefighter's station very close to where I live in Madrid. You can get a better idea of the whole thing from the two photos below (shot on film, FP4+). It's something I've photographed several times but I never seem to get a result I'm entirely happy with. I think I might try a "Brenizer method" shot of it with the 85mm.

M 100/4 "Dental" macro - What's the plant?

My trusty M 100/4 "Dental" macro using catch in focus because I'm too lazy to use a tripod for a flower id picture. Anyone know the name of this plant? My wife has no idea. The plant was a gift some years ago, and it finally flowered when she put it in a south exposure sunny window. Seems it likes sun.

First the flower. Total size about 15 mm (0.6 inch), minimum focus, cropped 50% so as to see more flower. 1/20 @ f/11, ISO 400, CIF, spot metered. I can take pictures of buds and so forth to help the ID if needed.

Second the plant. You can see the flower upper left above the pot. 1/30 @ f/11, ISO 1600, CIF

Hi Albert, It looks like a variety of Nematanthus "Goldfish plant" (as opposed to the Columnea genus which is also known as a Goldfish plant). They need a lot of light but not direct sunlight. I've had one for some years now - it has just one flower at the moment not to mention its dark outside right now so no pic for you, sorry, but mine looks just like the one here: Goldfish Plant Photo by knottyceltic | Photobucket

Cheers

Yes, a gladiolus. Specifically, one of the thousands of cultivars of the primulina gladiolus strain. A beautiful variety this one.

The old saying goes "Bloom where your planted" Very nice photos, possibly a type of Gladiolus, but I am no expert by any means.
On the topic of flower varieties a belated thanks for the compliments and for identifying these pics for me. I had heard of Gladiolus but no idea what one looked like until now!

Cheers
